It was pleasantly located near Thamel street yet far enough from the traffic, hence the quiet surroundings. The heater and hot shower was a big plus in the end winter. On day 1, we had a room with an old built in heater which was not effective, but day 2 we had a new heater that worked great. Overall it...

I can't imagine traveling to Kathmandu and staying anywhere else. Fantastic, helpful staff (especially Tenzin, who works miracles at the front desk); and great location -- close to everything, but being just far back off Thamel to avoid the crazy noise you'll get at other hotels. Added bonus: I met an interesting cast of mountaineers who come back to this...
