We were in Nepal, and came home days before the Earthquake hit, so we are very grateful, but our hearts are heavy. We stayed at the excellent Kathmandu Guest house, this was our 2nd time there, and it was even better the 2nd time around. So many things stand out, but above all is their service, which was excellent. And... More

During the crisis, this hotel provided water, food and shelter without question of payment. Above all we were guests whose safety and wellbeing was the only concern. They could not have done more. The hotel has great character, great staff and is truly legendary.

If you need some R&R after a trek, then this is the place to stay. The large, sunfilled garden has seats, flowers, peace and quiet, so you can recuperate away from the turmoil of Thamel. If you're preparing for a trek, this heritage hotel makes you part of Kathmandu's history: check out the stars on the entrance path. Our room... More

I have stayed at the KGH since my trekking days in the 1970s. I was there with a team doing volunteer work at the time of the 25 April 2015 quake. We were all supported by the CE of the KGH and his great staff. I want to reiterate how kind and wonderful the staff were during these days. We... More

Kgh is a perfect place for tourists and business trips. This is located at the busiest place in Kathmandu. Food is pretty good and value for money. For tourists, this value for money hotel is heaven as you can spend your time at the palace like ambience with some good wine.

We too had the experience of being in Kathmandu when the earthquake struck. Our hotel was badly damaged and we managed to secure rooms at the KGH. The staff were calm, supportive and provided the best possible service under very difficult conditions. We were grateful for their professionalism and will definitely stay there when we return - hopefully soon!

My experience of staying here dates back to 1998 when I went to Nepal on my own to celebrate my 60th birthday; I was in Nepal for 6 weeks. I rang the KGH from Australia and booked direct with them. Many of the staff speak English particularly on the front desk so there was no problem in being understood. Gyanu... More

I am not one who usually writes reviews, however my most recent experience at the KGH during the horrific earthquake which devastated the country was so profound and hospitable, I feel it is my due obligation to show credit where credit is due. First off, the management is INCREDIBLE. The owner Rajan was outstanding and made sure all his guests... More

Best place to stay in Kathmandu if you want to be near the action, lots of restaurants bars and tourist shopping in the narrow streets of central kathmandu. Noisy area but an haven of peace in the hotel grounds and gardens. Stayed before and after our trek. Before the trek we used one of the booking companies which proved expensive,... More
