Hotel Vajras is the most restful and quiet hotel in the area. i have visited Hotel Vajra since 2013 and every time i do, i find the staff is super friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and modest, and the grounds are impeccable. Though it is a relatively recent construction, the attention to cultural accuracy in the details and styling feels authentic. There is ample space on ground for impromptu meetings, a well-appointed theater space, an amazing roof-top meditation room, and a library of ancient nepali texts. Extremely reasonable rates!

A beautiful place but limited upkeep and it was cold in the room. Staff is wonderful and very responsive in trying to help make stay more comfortable.

I like the traditional but modernized Nepalse building style of the hotel building. The on-site restaurant is very convenient and provides good food at any time. The hotel is outside of Thamel in 10 minutes walking distance, so does Swajambu, the Monkey Temple. Staying there feels like Nepal and a safe and quiet retreat at the same time.
