Not fancy, but some old world charm, clean, quiet, old hotel on a hill, with wonderful Nepali hospitality. The road is out because of a bridge construction and will be out for some time, so the walk to and from town was muddy and slippery; you may want to ask the hotel for a lift on their scooter (an adventure...

The staff was very friendly and helpful, they dropped us off in the city and helped us with other stuff too. We ate here twice as the food was really good. The location is a bit outside and I feel like it is wrongly indicated on booking.com or google or there is an imitator.

Over a stay of several days, which coincided with Nepali New Year, I experienced wonderful meals, service and hospitality. The location, a bit above the town, is scenic and quiet, and the staff will provide transport to and fro. Walking takes about fifteen minutes.

Nice facility and comfortable rooms. The beds were especially comfortable (compared with many hotels in Nepal) and the towels were good (another noteworthy feature in Nepal).
