Cannot speak more highly of the kind, attentive staff at the RPB hotel. Loved that you can receive breakfast 24/7 in your own room! This is likely due to there being no elevator, so the room service is quite convenient. I've also never seen such an extensive room service menu - so many options. The stuffed animals (soft toys) on...

This hotel lives up to the hype. Perfect location, close to all that Thamel has to offer but far enough away for a quiet nights sleep. Nice clean rooms and great staff. The rooms a large and bathrooms are modern. And who doesn't like a stuffed animal for a roommate.

We booked this hotel as a treat after two weeks of trekking. The staff were great, and much of the decor was fun and trendy. Good location too. That's about it. BUT.
