I enjoyed Dalai la's integration and support of local artists. They have set aside part of their dining space as an impromptu gallery, allowing artists to present work and meet visitors and tourists. Dalai La also is part of Nepal 2020 tourisim campaign and had three giant 'Yeti' sculptures on display in their courtyard. Really fun place!

We really enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a superior suite — as long as we were willing to walk the five flights of stairs to the fourth floor. That was fine and we loved the room. The location can’t be beat. The inner courtyard is quite lovely and secluded enough from the noise of the street. Our room fronted on the street and yes, being in Thamel, you can hear the partying going on up until around 1:00 a.m. when things finally start to quiet down. Even so, we slept well. The bed was very comfortable. We had two complaints: 1) the shower was cold the first day, scalding hot the second day and perfect on the third day — so be sure to ask for it to be adjusted. 2) Breakfast was good and abundant made to order, but it was always a challenge to place an order as staff seemed unsure of the menu. Trying to get a second cup of tea was a comedy of errors. (Restaurant management, maybe there needs to be more training of staff to understand food terms in English and other common tourist languages?) Otherwise, we loved the place and the reception staff was exceptionally nice.

This hotel was an excellent choice for our visit to Nepal! From booking the hotel, to experiencing the hotel first hand, the whole thing was easy, the staff is very nice, our room was very clean and the views. WOW. The hotel has an excellent Restaurant on the bottom floor that has amazing food. We would definitely stay here again if going back to Nepal. Thank you for the most lovely time!
