This is a great little hotel, very well located in Thamel for both shopping and sight seeing. Friendly staff, nice secluded garden area. Rooms are clean, tidy, and all in all everything you'd want from a budget hotel.

Loved it here, very friendly staff. I met the manager, Mr Raju Pandley (Cell 9851079858) at the airport and he took me straight here, gave me a great room for a very reasonable price, and nothing was too much trouble! The room has wifi, hot water, and very comfy beds. Mr Raju is contactable any time, and very approachable. His... More

We got in late at the airport and the person meeting us never showed up. We asked a taxi driver for a $10 room and after a short dialogue we settled for a $20 room that included internet.

“For a natural alarm request a room on the inside near the pidgeon shute. They will wake you up promptly to get the early morning deals at the local shops. for better wifi (power/electricity permitting) request a room above the main lobby”

“there are three types of rooms. all of them have windows. the rooms with window to the courtyard are little bit noisier because of pigeons planing their family. the best tranquility you find in the rooms with garden window. the best internet connection is provided in the rooms close to the reception.”
