I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Norbu Linka, located in Thamel with easy access to shops and restaurants. It is located away from the busy street, and the outdoor dining area is a very pleasant place to enjoy breakfast. The room was quiet and comfortable.

Located in Thamel, close enough to walk to the shops, cafés and restaurants, but just far enough to get away from the busy street noise and honking cars. Our room was clean and comfortable. My only criticism would be that the wifi internet is very slow. We had to go to restaurants and cafés to use their wifi.
