This is nice hotel, right in the heart of thamel. Watch your booking here as we booked and paid big money for a room before our tour started and when we arrived they had no room available, this also happened to another couple in our tour party. However they did find other accommodation for us.,.the location here is very good

I have stayed here many times over the past 40 years & will certainly be back despite dissatisfaction with my most recent visit. KGH is probably the first tourist hotel in the heart of Thamel which has developed as Ktm's main shopping and restaurant area and within walking distance of Durbar Square and market. The hotel is an old Rana... More

You get what you pay. Really good for what they charge. Shops nearby and had an airport pickup which was overwhelming. Had a buffet breakfast. I dont know if it was temporary or what but there was a traffic noise sometimes

We loved it here. The location is perfect as it is right in the center of everything. We stayed a few nights in the new wing and another few nights in the original wing. Both rooms had a view over the courtyard. Both rooms were great in their own way. The newer room had a balcony. The older room was... More

My experience relates to the restaurant and food only - we had been recommended this venue by fellow travellers who had raved about the location and food. We were eager to try it and arrived for lunch - it really is an oasis in the middle of a hectic noisy city. The garden area was the perfect setting and we... More

My family took three standard rooms which was very fairly priced, albeit a bit small. To our horror we discovered there is no elevator so we had a good 4 flight stair workout daily, but the staff and porters were excellent and helpful, and managed to get my elderly mother in law in a lower floor. The hotel grounds are... More

Stayed a week and loved it. From the custom omelet breakfast to the super friendly guests.... nice. They arranged private cars and kept the room tip top shape. Some may not like the thin mattresses that are common in asia but we loved them. Good flat screen tv with lots of crazy Bollywood offerings and HBO for those who don't... More
