Hard to find more value for your money. Flawless location in the middle of Thamel. Helpful staff, even when dealing with crazy travel schedule. Rooms were clean, restaurant was tasty, although only did breakfast there. And a great big beautiful courtyard for sipping drinks.

The first room we stayed in was average but on the next night we had to move to a different room which was poor. Very tiny. No bathroom. Only a shared shower and toilet down the hall which wasnt the cleanest!

I just finished a wonderful visit to Nepal. I stayed at the Kathmandu Guest House three times during the month of August (2015). Everything about my stay(s) was superb: the friendly and efficient staff, the spotless and thoughtfully equipped rooms, the breakfast by the hotel's lovely garden, and the convenient location. The hotel has bounced back well from the quake... More
