This busy, efficient and popular hotel gets heavy use and the functional rooms are looking a bit worn in places, but it’s a solid choice so book in advance. There’s a lovely breakfast patio, a lobby espresso bar and the superb views of Swayambhunath from the rooftop just cry out to be appreciated at sunset with a cold beer.
All but the cheapest rooms are comfortable, though lower floors can be dark; the superior rooms have a lot more space. Some of the simple standard rooms are in a separate block across the street and come with a balcony. Discounts of 20% are standard.
