Rooms are good and staff were friendly and location is quiet away from thamels hassle. But the caretaker introduced me to an agent Jonardhan from Adventure Maypole. This agent was not good. This Jonardhan guy totally robbed me, and my guide also. I repeat, do not book any trek through Adventure Maypole.

I am biased cause I have befriended and love the people in the hotel. They would help you with anything they can. Been coming back for two years and enjoy their hospitality every time. The only problem this year was those loud rock and disco gigs in the middle of the night in Thamel :( But it is out of... More

I have been staying at Hotel Red Planet since the first year it opened. Reliable accommodation right in the very center of Thamel, but on a quieter side alley / street. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Good value. This is a budget hotel. Safe and secure.

The people running this are a large family group, and extremely sweet, thoughtful, and will do anything to help you connect with other areas, other agencies. etc.... They will do your laundry, they bring small simple meals to your room with no extra charge, there are a lot of paperback books to read that other travellers leave there...They have a... More

not a bad place for its price (i bagrained hard and got 600 ruppee a night), the room was just cleaned before me and windows open wide. Coming back in the evening I didnt realise I got the whole room full of mosquitoes! No protection nets on windows! Annoying buzzling mosquitoes flying over my head and body. The result: i... More

This hotel is owned and operated by a family, and their love for the place really shows. Located in the heart of Thamel, Hotel Red Planet is centrally located, and the staff can dispense great advice about things to do in the city. Just a few minutes walk away are amazing breakfast places, great shopping for tourists and travelers, kooky... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Red Planet three different times, as we did treks and other trips outside of Kathmandu -- and it began to feel like home. The staff is stellar: we chatted daily with Niti and her crew, Niti in particular was incredibly helpful with advice about tours, dining options (we tried two if her favorite... More

Stayed here several times during my trip to Nepal and every time found the staff to be friendly and welcoming and very informative. Rooms were very clean and secure and even though the hotel is right in the middle of Thamel, the rooms were quiet. Recommended!

Stayed here for 5 nights overall. really good location in the centre of thamel, right next to tom and Jerry's pub which is always fun. The staff at the reception desk are so kind and helpful, let us in late when the doors where locked without a problem. Our room had no outside window, just one onto a corridor which... More
