this hotel was EXTREMELY hard to find. My driver could not find it even with GPS and calling the hotel when we were searching for it. Finally, someone from the hotel had to come and find our car and show us down several twisty alleys to get there. It would be very hard to find it on one's own.
As such, the location had no shops nearby or places I would have felt comfortable walking aroundd. It was convenient to KTM airport which was just a few hundred yards/meters away but far enough (and uphill0 such that you would not want to walk there with luggage.
The room was adequate but quite dated. i felt like I as in a 1950s movie. The bed was a bit soft
Unlike other Kathmandu hotels I"ve stayed in, the staff did not speak much English, but the driver spoke great English. The proximity to the airport and the free shuttle were the highlights of the stay.
