Arrived in the afternoon and was shown to my room by disinterested staff. The checkin staff literally dropped me off at my room and left. I had to go back downstairs and ask for wifi password, toilet paper, etc. Rooms were decent and location is near thamel. However during my stay the wifi did not work for over 70% of... More

Great location, near to Thamel but off down a relatively quiet side road. We stayed in the new building (they have two) and had a great view from our balcony. Saw mountains one morning, which I gather is unusual these days from Kathmandu. Had breakfast each morning in the garden of the older building just down the road. Wifi, hot... More

if you liked to be away from the Thamel center, but very close from the action, Kathmandu Garden House is a good option, fair room, fair food, fair staff, can help you with good advices, they could do better but you like also the place because of this Nepali attitude...can upset yu as well... well this not the best service...

After 15 days in India, all the family was happy to land in Kathmandu, the last stop of our journey and for me was a dream. The Kathmandu Garden house was recommended by a friend of us and we choose the new building, the main building or the old one is little bit down the street with a pleasant garden,... More

I used to stay many times in Paknajol area,almost in every hotel. And hotel KTM garden House (a new building) looks attractively outside,also rooms looks new and clean. But I want to say, that hotel stuff is extremely unfriendly, water from the taps flows rusty, it is simply impossible to take shower whith this water. During 4 days of my... More

I've stayed here multiple times. Paknajol is a good option if you want to be close to central area/Thamel but away from the madness! Garden House have a nice garden and rooftop for some quiet downtime and it's away from the street noise and chaos of Thamel. The staff are great - relaxed, friendly and helpful with booking flights, changing... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights off-season. We got a very good room rate and the staff kindly helped us book many of the taxis and bus tickets we needed. We ate the food and found it very delicious, particularly the pancakes and thai red curry. Rooms are clean and have bathrooms and a fan, everything you... More

I stayed for a few days here..I highly recommend to eat outside of this place for starters the food is not good,and it is well overpriced compared to what restaurants charge elsewhere in thamel. I found the men there have a huge attitude problem, the mosquitoes are bad at nite. The rooms are a decent size, but cleanliness sub par..WIFI... More

The hotel is well situated and fairly quite and the garden and rooftop are nice places to relax. Staff was friendly enough. The sheets and blankets could definitely stand to be replaced as they were grungy.
