Reviewed 28 August 2012

The ever present owner is the kindest, most helpful and knowledgeable hotel owner we have met. He has a terrific command of the English language and is up to date in all transportation and travel matters as well as rather well informed about the city's art historically, religiously or otherwise relevant aspects. His information was always accurate and kindly and abundantly provided. His crew is equally polite and helpful.
The hotel has no restaurant - only a room service with a modest selection of food -, but due to it's central location it is not an issue. And the owner and the staff are always ready to give you excellent suggestions for an eatery.

Room Tip: As always in Asia: ask for a room on the top floor! The street below can get noisy, and it is the be...

The view from the room on top floor(super delux room) was excellent.We saw clear view of Mt. Kanchenchunga from the room on all the days.

The service was excellent and the staff was very helpful & friendly.

The hotel has a nice location,just 5 min. walk from Mall & major shopping area.

The rooms are nice,clean & comfortable.

In short it was a pleasent & memorable stay except few points need to be improved:
1.During power cut(which is very regular on that area) on day time they don't run generator during off-season which leads to hot water problem .

2.During off-season their restaurant was not running and they serve food on rooms only and the quality of food was not so good.In fact the staff and owner suggest us about nearby retaurant for lunch & dinner.
