A taxi ride from the airport is a convenient way of reaching the hotel and it costs around USD 7.00. If requested at time of booking, the hotel can arrange to receive and transfer you from the airport. You only need to mention this while booking and provide full detail of your arrival a few days before. Everything else will be taken care of. This is highly recommended if you have not been in the city ever before, as the roads and streets in and around Thamel can be tricky for first-timers.
The best way to the hotel is from Sorhakhutte, via Lainchour as most of the other routes remain congested most of the time. Instruct you cab-driver to take you near People's Multiple Campus at Paknajol, which is approximately 400 metres from Sorhakhutte junction. The hotel lies on the right side of the campus. You will have to enter the maingate and walk across the courtyard to find the reception on the ground floor.
