I reserved a rooftop room at this hotel six months before arriving – being familiar with the area and with the hotel, I knew I needed a relatively quiet place to be able to work (at least for Boudha) for four months. When I arrived, however, the room I had reserved had been given to another guest five days before my arrival, in spite of both verbal and written agreements for my reservation. | I was put in another room on a lower floor and assured it was much better. However, the room was right next to a furniture factory and underneath the hotel’s rooftop restaurant. From 6 in the morning until sometimes 8 in the evening and later, I was bombarded with scraping chairs above and electric saws, wood-sanders and hammering next door. | At night, the neighbour’s dogs have regular barking fits (it almost sounds as if it is in your room) although I was told that this problem had also been resolved. | In addition, because the hotel uses solar power to heat the water, due to the cold in January, there was no hot water. | It is difficult to find places to rent in Boudha, so I had to stay here until I found another room. In the six weeks I stayed at this hotel, it was hell. | I got many different stories from the management as to how something like this could happen, and the more I found out, the more I realised that the noise was a known issue from the very beginning. | It would have been so much easier if the hotel had honoured the original agreement. I absolutely do not recommend them – completely untrustworthy. I have heard similar stories to my own from other clients as well.
