This hotel has a great advantage due to its centralized location. Malls, eating joints, markets are just a hop-skip and jump away. One might actually forget to tour the city of Kathmandu as this hotel binds the guests to its scenic campus. The early morning tea at the picturesque gardens along side a small pond with swans wondering adds to... More

The hotel has excellent location and the service is also very good . The upholstery definitely needs a makeover , the carpets in the rooms seem to be very old and never ever cleaned.. The windows were very dirty from outside due to the bird droppings. The housekeeping staff is very rude , they just knock once and then straight... More

Amazing place. Started with a big smile when we entered the hotel. I with my other 5 friends booked 3 rooms at the beginning and end of our trip to Nepal for a couple of days.

The Yak and Yeti is a very nice hotel when staying in Kathmandu – the staff is very accommodating, facilities are nice and comfortable and the rooms (we stayed in heritage section which have been updated) were very good with a comfortable bed, good-size bathroom w/shower and quite fast wifi.

Staff service was good and attentive, and I also enjoyed an excellent massage session there. One concern I have with the hotel is the poor gym area; the equipment provision is simply too outdated, and the room is too small. Jacuzzi and steam room/sauna use were for extra charge, which I found unreasonable as they come standard in every other... More

Slowly but surely Kathmandu's famous Yak and Yeti Hotel is getting a well-deserved facelift. The old wing, now the Heritage Wing, is being redone with traditional carvings, wood floors and new linens that brighten up the rooms. The newer wing has been spruced up, and looks quite nice also. For many reasons, the Yak and Yeti has been my preferred... More
