The hotel is in a great central location in Thamel. My room faced the street, but even then I did not find it very noisy. The room and all of the hotel was clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. The shower had plenty of hot water, day and night with good water pressure. I didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, so I can't provide and commentary on the quality. I will be returning to Kathmandu for a night and have already booked my accommodation at Avataar.
