This is a good retreat from the chaotic and noisy streets in Kathmandu, as hotel is located in its own compound away from the city centre.

We found it very difficult to reconcile the superb surroundings within the hotel complex with the poverty at the gates. The hotel was excellent - comfortable rooms, good choice of restaurants, opportunity to book Himalaya flight, comfortable modern public area. Beautiful gardens tended by ladies dressed as tea pickers.
