    Hotel look quite nice from the outside with a nice driveway.
    We were part of a group of 11 and as such we got the worst rooms the hotel had to offer. 4 of the rooms were in the "basement" of the hotel. Rooms were pretty small. Windows were exactly like those basement units of houses ie just the very top of the rooms -you can't look out of it. 1 of the room on the 6th floor had a "half window" that you have to kneel to look out. This "hotel" was obviously not built for a hotel but was a palace before. Service was OK, Internet was quite expensive at about 630 NPR for 1 hour, they charge tax and a 10% service fee for internet! Quite a rip off. Will not stay here if I ever go back to Katmandu.

    Comfortable rooms complete with a table and couch. Prompt service (including spaghetti on the room service menu for the traveller tired of curry). Good wi-fi in the room. HOT showers with great water pressure.
