We stayed here 3 years ago. This time our room was noisy, small and uninspiring. Staff didn't answer questions but had some general standard answers ("we know what all tourists want"). Food was presented very nicely but was rather bland.
A quiet beatifful oasis in the heart of the bustling tourist hub of Kathmandu.
I stayed here for a week over Christmas and was so happy to find a quiet and contemplative place to stay within walking distance of Thamel, Durbar Marg and Swayambhunath. The...More

Thank you for finding us a relaxing oasis during your stay here. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed our garden and traditional architecture, and thank your for appreciating our mission to conserve heritage and environment.
This hotel is well reviewed but even so it was better than I expected. It has a lovely atmosphere, everyone is helpful and polite and the free yoga session was challenging and enjoyable - although the one I went to was definitely not for novices!...More
Located right next to the Thamel area, this hotel is also surprisingly peaceful. The main building is surrounded by a large courtyard which is a great escape from the busy surrounding streets. We stayed in a deluxe room facing an interior courtyard for two days...More
We stayed there 6 nights last November before and after our trek. It is a very nice hotel, great people, very cosy, close to shops and restaurants but still very quiet. Rooms are large and beds are comfortable. I would certainly return to this hotel...More

We stayed on a first floor room as my mother has trouble with stairs. Room was large with Windows/ window seat over looking the gardens. Think it was just a standard room (101). Was a bit dark at the back but that was more of a lighting issues.

I don't think you need to be picked up at the airport. I walked out recently, and got offered first off a taxi to the hotel for £6,. English . Or $6.- Australian, I can't remember, but it was the first offer I got, and I couldn't be bother haggling after a long flight to save maybe a few cents. The hotel will organise anything you want. They charge more like $10.- Australian , but then you have a sort of guarantee. The hotel reception staff is really friendly and intelligent, you can talk to them. I booked my taxi to the airport to leave Kathmandu via them , even though it is a little more expensive that way than walking down the street , but I wanted a feeling of guarantees. The hotel is really good. As for booking direct, any hotel pays a percentage to the system that you book through, so it is always, internationally, possible to get a better deal if you deal direct. But then you might feel a little nervous and uncertain, and is it worth it. The people behind the counter at the hotel are really intelligent. They speak great English and have a sense of humour. You can talk to them.
