This hotel is in a great location. They also stay true to the Nepalese hospitality standards. The airport pick up and free breakfast are nice touches that make sure they provide great service. We stayed there for 4 nights and on two of the nights, it was very noisy in the lobby. We stayed on the first floor so we heard everything from our room at 11pm and 3am the other night. I’d recommend staying on a higher floor to avoid hearing the noises from the lobby late at night.
