We don't normally splurge on hotels but decided to treat ourselves to the luxury room which has felt like a palace after living in hotels all over India for the past 6 months. Our room was spacious, the sheets on the bed were clean, and the pillows and comforters were nice and cozy. Wifi is great and they seem to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and we're really satisfied with the over-all service that we are getting from Backyard Hotel and their staff! We booked a deluxe room and it's at the 5th flr of the hotel. The room is spacious and clean! The staff clean our room everyday (with our permision, of course) and all the hotel employees... More

The staff of Hotel Backyard was very accommodating and did everything to make sure every aspect of our trip was enjoyed and memorable. The moment we woke up for breakfast we enjoyed the warm greetings of the staff to make our meal fit to our needs. Attentiveness did not end here, but the staff were very careful to ensure my...

very good location and very nice staff... Only one problem: NEVER BOOK A TOUR WITH A GUY NAMED SANTOS, he will rip you off. The owner of the hotel is a nice and fair guy, but everything you book with SANTOS will be a scan...

It was a pleasure for me to stay in this hotel! Excellent quality-price ratio. You are in the heart of thamel, with shops, restaurants. The hotel will keep your suitcases if you decide to go trekking. Young staff and very kind, ask for Kopi it's the nicer!

definitely the best place I have stayed at in my journeys to Kathmandu. The staff are very friendly and more than helpful when trying to organizing day trips around Kathmandu or treks in the mountains, the breakfast is tasty and the rooms are very clean. It is also located in the center of Thamel, so it is very convenient if... More

I spent a total of 12 nights here over a month in Nepal at the time of the earthquakes. The staff were happy to accommodate my coming and going. The boys were always cheerful and friendly and invariably helpful. I was well looked after.

Great hotel, quiet and close to everything. Great prices too! On arrival I was told to treat the place as it was my lounge room, and the owner and staff were very friendly. They also have great local knowledge and can organise anything for you. The manager, Siri, has been to Everest Base Camp over 50 times and can help... More

upon landing in Nepal airport, hotel staff carrying my name on a piece of paper was already waiting and that's for free!. The drive to Backyard hotel was great, I was already amazed and overwhelmed by how different Thamel is from the rest of all the places I've been to. I cannot wrap everything in my head about all the... More
