Lonely Planet review
For stylish design and sheer romance, this outstanding hotel is unbeatable; if you’re on honeymoon, look no further. Over 40 years the owners have rescued thousands of woodcarvings from around the valley (from buildings facing demolition or collapse) and incorporated them into the hotel design, which consists of clusters of traditional Newari buildings separated by brick-paved courtyards. The end result is a beautiful hybrid – a cross between a museum and a boutique hotel, with a lush, pampering ambience. Each room is unique and some have sexy open-plan granite bathrooms. The location on a busy street east of town, a short walk southwest of Pashupatinath, is a pain, but finding a taxi is never a problem.
