It is located in a very convinient alley of Tamel, but it was quiet enough. No problems during the nights. Rooms were fine and they had many options: doubles, twins, triples, singles... Rooms were huge! Staff was ultra-helpful (one guy was maybe a little bit too tiring when trying to make us feel comfortable and welcomed) and we all liked... More

I stayed at GreatWall for 4 nights and the service was excellent from the moment I arrived. My flight was delayed by a few hours but the hotel driver patiently waited. The hotel staff themselves are incredibly friendly, having gone to Nepal to do a Bungee I pretty much had no idea what I would do for the rest of... More

We'd picked this hotel after reading all the amazing reviews from the internet, but sadly to find this place was a little bit of a let-down. 1. We arrived the hotel around 20:30 during the night ( good free airport pick up service btw). Me and my boyfriend were both quite tired and starving from the whole day travel (... More

For Nepal this is an excellent budget hotel, you will pay much more for less elsewhere. Proper ceiling fans, wonderful service, LCD TV, water was always hot somewhat hard to find but once you do you're good. The Chinese restaurant in the next side street has amazing Chinese burgers for 200rp. Would stay again.

The staff at this hotel were so kind and helpful and as a solo, female traveller it felt like a safe place to return to each night. The rooms were clean and comfortable and fairly quiet since it is a little bit back from the main road. Extremely walkable to many good locations.

The great wall was perfect after two weeks of trekking. Clean, with hot powerful shower and nice beds. Great location, quiet, very nice staff. It was a good place to recover! I was given a very nice discount, and was treated really nicely by all the staff.
