This hotel is in a great location within Thamel and the extravagant markets. The hotel itself is undergoing some exterior work and it seems like they're genuinely attempting to improve the place. The first night we stayed, we had a large room with three single beds. Considering I had requested a double, it obviously fell on deaf ears. The beds... More

We arrived late at the hotel. Unfortunately they did not hold our room as agreed. Instead they gave us a room w/o a bathroom for a night and gave us our booked room first thing in the morning. The buffet breakfast is more an adequate- serving buffalo sausages and hard boiled eggs daily, aside from other dishes. There is no... More

We used this hotel as a group booking to stop over and return a week later. The rooms were ok some better than others breakfast was good but not enough cups and bowls or glasses drinks were pricey and the bar shut at 10pm common in the area. Staff were friendly and helpful but it was an oasis in a... More

The Hotel is mid range and very peaceful. A great garden within the atrium that is sun filled with well cared potted plants and plenty of seating to enjoy an afternoon cup of coffee or a beer. The rooms are small but comfortable with twin beds, a combination of a small shower/sink/toilet facilities that are great for this part of... More

Excellent location, very helpful staff, good rooms and all the basic amenities. I stayed for one night only but stay was very comfortable and located in the heart of Kathmandu Thamel. Prices are very reasonable compare to location and facilities.

We were only there for a night on the advise and recommendation of a friend. It was quiet and the rooms were big but the service was lacking. For the rate they were charging per room per night I would have expected more. The breakfast in the morning was good. The hotel is located right in the heart of Thamel.... More

Booked a room based on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed there 25 years ago and was not disappointed. In the middle of the Thamel neighborhood, but as others have stated it is set back so noise is not really an issue. The grounds, the lobby, the shops, the restaurant, and the staff make you feel as if... More

Bought a gold and lapis lazuli necklace in the gemshop of the Kathmandu Guesthouse. Coming home the 'gold' turned black and was confirmed by my jeweller to be copper. Next visit I confronted them :they denied but I could prove it. After threatening to go to the Police they offered to pay the costs of repairment. After long bargaining I... More
