4/10 Fair

Staff didn’t have the room key at the counter, I had to wait outside the room until another staff brought key to open the door. There was no hot water, only one power plug which would not for to international chargers. Staff at the counter didn’t know if I had already paid during my booking and provided me a bill to pay

This hotel does a great job and making sure you are happy being here. From breakfast to getting the tv cable channels that are available in English. Nothing is too much trouble. I’ll be back while I’m in Nepal.

From the moment I entered the front door I knew I was welcome. I had traveled all night to get to Kathmandu and needed coffee and 5 minutes to gather myself. The kind gentleman bought me coffee and said when I was ready that so was my room. I checked in and the rest of the stay was as great as my check in. Thank you Hotel Buddha.

6/10 Good

My partner and I stayed her in January 2020 for a bit over a week. Overall the property wasnt bad but the rooms are tired. I noticed the windows arent sealed so noise and the weather can easily seep through. This wasnt great as there is construction work on both sides of the hotel (but I can hardly blame them for that). The breakfast was exceptional and the staff were brilliant, so I woupd probably go back.
