The hotel is the central place in Thamel. From here everything is just a couple of minutes walk. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, and made us feel very welcome. When one room was not as good as expected, they helped us to another room immediately, and took great care of it. Most of the staff were smiling all... More

My wife and I were very glad that we chose the Kathmandu Guest House. We were quite ill upon arrival and the service we receive helped us over nasty colds so we could continue our filming, writing and sightseeing. We especially loved the peaceful garden. The staff are outstanding and the location very convenient. For sure we will be back.... More

The Kathmandu Guest house is a marvellous oasis in the touristy Thamel district of Kathmandu. It would be extremely embarrassing to admit you are staying anywhere else. Nabin is the most excellent manager and will do everything to make your stay at the hotel comfortable and has the connections to sort out your itinerary in the rest of Nepal.

PROS: We stayed in this lovely hotel for a week while doing business and some sightseeing in KTM and nearby. KTM city and especially Thamel are very hectic, very crowded and very dirty so it was really a relief each time you did enter the gates of and guards of The Kathmandu Guest House. Safety guards at the gate and... More

The old labyrinthine part of KiGH is gone after the devastating earthquake of May 2015. Instead a bigger garden, with chairs and dining area, and the new wing which is nicely set, with good, well appointed rooms, with good natural light and a nice perspective over the larger yard. The neoclassical building opposite is being restored right now and it... More

Earthquake took its toll but the renovated garden in the Square is much better now. In spite of long power cuts in the city there was minimal impact on the amenities - room was well heated, hot water on demand, TV etc. Breakfast too was good but importantly the staff went out of their way to look after the guests....
