  • 10.0.Exceptional

    peaceful and well maintained. I had to make changes to the trip by reducing the stay by a day but the offer given to me was very bad. They asked me to use the one day amount within 2 month for stay which looked ridiculous. I had called through Expedia and the hotel did not seem to oblige and were strict.

    Walkable to the main bazaar and couple of restaurants close by. Had some problems with the front desk when requesting an extra bed. Hotel was ok, and a little bit further out than I would have liked

  • 4.0.Fair

    Hotel lobby is beautiful but rooms and hallways are very average. Pictures of the rooms on the various travel websites are very misleading. Rooms are dark and very clostrophobic. When the original palace was converted in to hotel, they added a sub-floor to convert each floor in to two floors and that resulted in the low height in the hallways and some of the rooms. On the top floor rooms and hallways entire window is a semi-circular part of the tall windows you see from outside. I would not stay at this hotel again.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Paid for suite but was damp and smelt so bad :-(

    We booked a suite following a 2 week Everest base camp trip to enjoy some luxury and a nice rest in the room. Also we wanted to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday in a lovely environment but unfortunately we were very disappointed. The suite had severe damp because the pipe from aircon unit went onto a flat room outside and came through into the room. Not only was the smell awful but my husband has ashma and damp is very bad for your chest. We flagged this with reception and were offered a double standard room. We had paid for a suite which had living area and sleeping area so this was a big downgrade despite paying a premium for a suite. We had been looking forward to our stay and the room would have been perfect if no damp. We stayed in the room and wore/slept in face masks. Not the experience we were hoping for or paid for. In addition to this my husband had a short shower which was perfect and I went in afterwards to there being no hot water left for me - after 2 weeks trekking and little opportunity to shower believe me when I say a shower and bath were also top of our priorities when choosing this hotel but again disappointed! At check out no offer of a refund or gesture for the experience of our stay.
