We loved our stay at the Backyard Hotel! The location is great, in the middle of Thamel. The rooms were clean and spacious and the kitchen on the terrace serves the yummiest Nepali breakfasts and dinners! What takes this hotel to the next level is the service, the staff are extremely warm and friendly and are always willing to go... More

When we arrived in Kathmandu, we booked at the backyard hotel for one night. Our experience was so good that we decided to stay 5 nights before our trek, and 7 nights after taking our trek, while wainting to take our plane back to Canada. The staff was 10/10 and at first, our plan was to book a trek for... More

I had originally booked two consecutive nights here and had to change it to two single nights due to an overnight rafting trip in the middle. I called the hotel thinking it might be a problem, but they changed my reservation without any hesitation. Both rooms I had were very clean, nice, and comfortable. The staff at the hotel was...

Great value for money. The best part of this hotel is the restaurant on the roof run by chef Jimmy. I would recommend the traditional indian breakfast and definitely have dinner up there one night. We stayed in a deluxe room and were lucky to have an outside balcony area. Would definitely recommend room 111. The hotel staff are always... More

The room was comfortable, was big,but in my room the heater didn't worked that day, so it was cold that night. But the sheet warming me. The breakfast was good and the crew are friendly. When we were living they gave us an scarf for the good luck. From outside it look totally different, so you might be surprised!

The hotel is right next to Thamel squire and tourist attraction area, such as shops and restaurants. People are nice and service was good. Rooms are okay with very small bathrooms. I booked through Agoda, but Agoda prices was for 1 person which I didn't realized until I get there. Hotel charged me extra $5 for my wife. It wasn't... More

I believe that I don't have to tell you about the location of the place. It's just fantastic. easy to find, yet it's still quiet and calm. the room is quite clean and it's off the noisy road so you can even take a long nap during the day. we've been here at the most hot weather. and I'm recommending...
