The famous Kathamdu Guest House (KMG) is not a "guest house" one would expect when you hear "guest house". It's a midrange hotel, offering everything you need in the very center of Thamel in Kathmandu. Rooms are clean but might have seen better times. The garden is fantsstic and if you feel tired of the noise in Kathmandu, this is... More

We are a family of 4, we stayed at KGH both before and after our trek. It really suited our needs, everything we needed. Children loved the garden and the fact that we could walk out into the nightlife, shops, restaurants without having to get transport is a bonus. Very handy location, you could feel the history.

We spent a week here and found it a neat tidy place. Our room was warm, clean and comfortable. The staff were always polite and helpful. It is located in the middle of the shopping area so it is a very good location. The peaceful courtyard was a great place to read and relax.

The obvious, location was perfect. I first thought it was going to be very noisy as it was right in the centre but it was great in the end. The place was pleasant, rooms pleasant and staff were excellent, overall I recommend this place, it's safe and fun area if you are travelling to Kathmandu for the first time

This was our first stop in Nepal and we were pleasantly surprised. It's apparently somewhat of an institution according to the guidebooks, and this is apparent when you get there. Loads of backpackers and other tourists being dealt with by Nepalese staff obviously used to dealing with said tourists. Brisk and efficient without coming across as rude or jaded. Our... More
