Arriving in Nepal June 4 to do some earthquake relief work, we checked into Kathmandu Guest House, as we have on periodic visits since our first stay with them in 1973.

A clean room, good facilities, friendly staff, a pleasant aspect over the courtyard, decent (though not spectacular) food. Almost a compete haven in his turbulent city. The only down side (and not one within the control of the hotel) was the constant traffic noise that was so disturbing.

I have found my visits here most pleasant. A feeling of being safe is a requirement for me. KGH gives me that security. Wonderful attentive and kindly staff always ready to assist. The breakfast could be better.

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.

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.
