      • Quiet area and fantastic hotel. The staff is very attentive, and the big rooms that are quite big and clean, breakfast was good and the gardens are splendid.

        In a poor location for any sightseeing, ugly bathroom and very smelly towels. Food at the restaurant was not very tasty.

      • The location was great and architecture of the hotel building were impressive. The staff were very friendly and bath were spotless. No Indian food was tasting good, the swimming pool was clean.

        The attraction of an old palace, sad place dated and the communal washrooms in the lobby and restaurant were just filthy. The daytime front desk people were rude, the female receptionists were very cold and unfriendly, the room I was in only had a very small window. The beer was the most expensive in Nepal.

      • We liked the quite location, beautiful Hotel and the staff were all helpful and had a positive attitude. The room was fine and the sheets were clean. The breakfast was very good.

        Public areas are not much less than the nearby radisson the service is better at the radisson and great place to stay in Kathmandu is hot dirty and noisy.

      • Fine and beautiful, nice premises, clear, friendly stuff. Luxury and good prices, great service. The room was very clean, breakfast had a wide selection of different dishes including healthy food and the garden by the pool was pleasant to relax in.

        Declared as the most dangerous international airport on 26th of July, an island of tranquility in busy Kathmandu and basically, the hotel is just too old. Bathrooms are basic and i have never run out of hot water.

      • Location perfect for katmandhu sights and great Hotel. Impressive looking building and well worth the money. Good staff and facilities, the receptionist Meenu was absolutely excellent.

        Too many kids swimming in pool would like lounge chairs in the shaded areas, the rooms had a strong smell of sewing and the restaurant in the basement is not nice.

      • Pool area is nice and place is good. Staff is really friendly and the shower is powerful was unexpected. Other facility like shopping.

        The receptionist tried to give us the drive back to the airport at higher price than agreed, the hotel is very old and the toilets at the lobby are not clean. Internet is very slow, breakfast need to have more selection.

      • Dusty city of Kathmandu, taxis are also easily available and the design of the hotel is impressive. The building is very beautiful, the lobby is also very stylish and best thing the staff are friendly. The suite is big and the swimming pool is clean and has a nice bar.

        The spa is not on site, and quite a distance away, sometimes the personnel is too annoying and bathroom in the standard room is too small. Food is not excellent.
