The best thing of this place is the white bed sheets and towels. The staff is nice and really polite. In my opinion the whole place needs a paint wash, rooms, corridors and toilets look dirty, specially the shared toilets. My room was sunny, comfortable and cheap.

Located at 5 mins walk from thamel high street, yet on a peaceful tiny hill in paknajol. Lovely people, a family run place, n welcoming staff made it a very good stay. Nice restaurant n good food. Rooms are spacious n clean. Ideal place if you want some peace.

The Yellow House is a fairly basic place. The rooms are spacious, if a bit threadbare. Wifi comes and goes, as does the TV reception, but it's not horrible. The location is excellent for walking and exploring, and the breakfast was one of the best I've ever had.

This is a very centrally located hotel. I stayed with my wife and two other couples for 2 days. Power cuts in the afternoon happen all over Kathmandu. The staff were helpful and friendly. Beautiful views of the mountains from each terrace. I recommend the top floor for more privacy and better views!

We stayed there on our first night in Nepal. Kathmandu is a huge and noisy city. Even though the Yellow House is located in the Thamel, it is very quiet and we cannot hear much noise from there and the atmosphere is very peaceful. The stuff is friendly and there is good food and free wifi. The bedroom are spacious... More

A couple of minutes walking away from Thamel's hussle and busstle, is the wonderful quiet and relaxed Yellow House. Run by the most friendly people, employing fantastic staff and offering clean and spacious rooms, it's an absolute topper in KTM! We loved staying here and will certainly return!

Stayed here for 2 nights a couple of days ago. The rooms are tidy and comfortable though since rooms don't have fans, some of the smaller rooms might get a bit stuffy and you will need to put the split a/c on. The staff is friendly and very helpful, especially the night watchman who went out of his way to... More

We spent two days at this propriety. The room was clean, good AC, breakfast was a la carte pretty decent. The bed was hard for our standards, staff friendly. Good free wifi. Not great value for the money I would say. We added 15% more and stayed the 3 days left at a 4* hotel. But if you need a... More

We stayed here twice in one week at the beginning & end of a tour. It’s a good budget choice away from the hassle of Thamel set in a suburb of Kathmandu. It has a reception building and car-park with an apartment block behind in a pleasant garden. We found all the staff very helpful and accommodating – the concierge... More

If you want to stay in Thamel, but have somewhere at the end of the day to retreat to recover from the madness then this is the place for you. Sure you can still hear the endless car horns, but once you turn the corner onto this road you are in a quiet oasis. The rooms are nicely presented and... More
