I mean… well… meh. OK for a couple of nights. (Sorry Nepalaya!) Staff was nice and helpful with directions, airport transport, etc. Relatively inexpensive airport pick/drop, but it is standard rates I guess. Great location. Great rooftop garden and bar/resto with good views. Breakfast was included and very good, but of course limited options. I am sure this rooftop is happening and bustling on a warm summer night.
Room itself was so-so. Very cold, only AC heater cranked to the max to blow some warm air. Had to stay under huge blanket. No hot water first evening, could not shower. Decent wifi and good TV with some channels though. There is no sound-proofing at all. You hear everything through the (squeaky) door. TV did not work on arrival. Set to wrong input source and Russian language. Should have been verified before next guest arrives. Dinner was less than impressive but maybe it was just my bad menu choice.
I love Hotel Nepalaya mostly because of its location and the people who work there. I have stayed in this hotel on three separate trips to Nepal, once in the month of September, once in May and now also in January. The heating and air conditioning always work, very quietly. Most American hotels use PTAC units that are as loud as common window units, but these are split systems and almost completely silent. The staff is super friendly, so if anything is not to your liking, just tell someone and they will make it right.
The hot water works but can take a while to get through the pipes to your room.
Location location location! Right in central Thamel.
Breakfast choices are bit limited and need improvement. Also, would have preferred hot water in the sink, and heating in the rooms. It got cold in the nights. Table lamps could be very helpful in the rooms.
The staff were really helpful. Thanks
