This was my first visit to Nepal & Kathmandu. After traveling over 38-hrs from the United States & being solo, this was the perfect hotel for me to arrive at, relax & have a meal on the rooftop & get a massage. It was my home base for my first 3 nts in Nepal until my other American colleagues arrived & we all traveled together to different cities. I loved this hotel & would be highly likely I will stay there again upon arrival to this city on my next trip to Kathmandu, Nepal. Thank you!

Nice & comfortable boutique hotel for a great price. Down the street from US Embassy and embassy district. They provide a free shuttle to Thamel but you need to book a day in advance. We were disappointed that they didn't tell us we had to book ahead so we didn't actually get to take advantage of this. Read the fine print!!!! Restaurant served decent food. Breakfast buffet is just OK, nothing special. But lunch & dinner options were good. The infinity pool is indeed spectacular especially on a clear day. They do not provide free airport pickup. A regular Taxi ride to/from airport is about $6.

I was disappointed with the free shuttle ride to Thamel. It only runs once a day and you have to book it 24 hours in advance. The room was very clean and modern and the bed was very comfortable.

Attractive, comfortable & had all the amenities. A refuge of sanity and repose—the perfect place to come into off the road.
