We Stayed here for a night on our second stay in Thamel, after the hotel we originally booked in to stay at overbooked and did not have a room. Choose your room carefully. Some rooms have airconditioning, others do not. Rooms facing the street are very noisy, even with the windows closed (Loud music from nearby bars/clubs and traffic noise).... More

Located in the center of Thamel, the Lucky Star Hotel provides clean and comfortable rooms for cheap prices. The staff is welcoming and willing to help you to explore Katmandu. Ask for the upper rooms- it will be more quite in the nights.

Had to haggle for an affordable price for a room. Rooms are not in good condition. Leakages, peeling walls, toilets unable to flush. Thank goodness there was some hot water available for shower. One staff was pushing for payment to be made even when i was standing in front of him and counting my rupees. Only reason i was here... More

I've been to Kathmandu MANY times and have never stayed at the same place twice in Thamel...why, because most places are pretty awful. Lucky Star is an exception. The rooms facing the street are huge with nice wooden floors and the staff was incredibly welcoming and accomodating, espeically Sujan (pronounced Suzan) and Binai. They were always available to answer any... More

I choose the hotel because it is central, very close to everywhere, and very close to Chabad house, that is the reason why there are a lot of Israelis and... More

Located centrally in Thamel but this place was awful. The mattresses were like wooden plates, there was a hole in the window screen so mosquitoes were flying in at all times of the night, and the place itself is quite noisy. If you are looking for a quiet night before heading out for a Trek the next morning go elsewhere.... More
