    The room is very dated and basic but still equipped well as you can expect from an ordinary city hotel. The best point of this hotel is their swimming pool. It located in very peaceful garden you can be away from the crazy Kathmandu city....More

    Great value for the standard of the hotel. Very quiet, clean and big rooms. Swimming pool is the bonus. Breakfast is very good, mix western and Nepali style. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's like a another world from the outside busy traffic.More
