Before booking, I had read quite a lot of negative reviews about this place, but the location made me go for it. In one line, its not worth the price you pay. You have to be lucky just to get a glimpse of the lake from your room. Mountains are a definite no. There are quite a few cheaper options behind Trek o tel with better views. 2 receptionists out of 3 I encountered could barely communicate. Wi Fi for some strange reason is on a chargeable basis if used from the room, but can be used for free in the garden or the restaurant! I finally got the password when I walked down to the garden, and promptly went back to the room to surf! Mockery of technology I should say. Had to check for some flight related stuff, the staff refused to give me numbers. There is no phone in the room as well, but they have room service menu!!! Anyways they made one call to Budha Air and said only 1 seat available. I asked them to check with Agni and Yeti, but they said its all full. Refused to make one additional call to check. Finally a taxi was arranged for 8000NPR! which I found ridiculous, but had to go with it. Once again I was denied a cash receipt.When I insisted,some rude guy called Krishna, stood up, tore a piece of paper from trash, and scribbled down a small note acknowledging receipt. Not sure where the money went to.Will not recommend this place to anyone. Over priced for the service and size of room.Breakfast gets over by 9:30 even though there are hardly anyone around. Terrible food.
