Good but can be better
Could have been much cleaner with newer bed sheets and towels but good staff and location.
Bisesh, 5-night trip
Verified Hotels.com guest review

2/10 Poor

Don't believe the pictures nor the reviews! Although the staff means well but the property is old and falling apart there was minimum hygiene precautions and things are left uncleaned. Not recommended until the owners invest in renovating the place. Ps. Most of the good reviews date back to 2014/2015 - so don't trust what the hotel is showing you as content as it's not updated. We had to cancel after our first night. Expedia talked to the hotel and we got refunded for the remaining nights (so that's the only plus).

8/10 Very good

4 nights in Kathmandu
This hotel is in a great location. They also stay true to the Nepalese hospitality standards. The airport pick up and free breakfast are nice touches that make sure they provide great service. We stayed there for 4 nights and on two of the nights, it was very noisy in the lobby. We stayed on the first floor so we heard everything from our room at 11pm and 3am the other night. I’d recommend staying on a higher floor to avoid hearing the noises from the lobby late at night.
