I enjoyed my stay in the Kathmandu Guest House. The hotel is brilliantly located right in the middle of Thamel and so you couldn't really want for a better location, as its right in the thick of things. My bedroom was on the first floor and, to be honest, it was rather dingy and a bit dank. The room reminded... More

I strongly recommend the Kathmandu Guesthouse, perfect for tourist and business travelers. It's located in Thamel, where everything is happening: When I want peace and quiet, I step into the hotel's magnificent garden and I'm in another world. I often take meals there.The rooms are comfortable and meticulously kept. Because I am an author, I use the business center often,... More

The good: I stayed at the KGH in May 2012. The hotel is beautiful, in a rustic we-were-built-by-the-british-and-have-been-here-for-100-years kind of way. Great outdoor dining area and, after being in Tibet for 10 days, the best food I could have asked for. Great atmosphere and plenty of fellow travelers. The location in the heart of Thamel is also great. Two sources... More

Dear Bryan, Im glad you enjoyed your stay at the KGH. However, we are so sorry about your bad time in Chitwan. The staff that was in the travel desk last year has been fired as we found out about his misdeeds. We sincerely apologize again for this. We hope you do not judge us due to this staff's misdemeanors.... More

They are always curious and willing to answer your questions and help make your stay the best possible. It is a safe and welcoming environment!!

We used the hotel as part of a group trekking to Everest Base Camp. The location was great providing a tranquil location to escape the chaotic Kathmandu streets. Our twin rooms were fine however the quality of many of the rooms varied considerably due to the add on nature of the hotel. This is my first hotel review which is... More

Dear Gareth, Thanks for staying in our hotel and sorry you had to go through the misunderstanding in our bar. I have made the staff do a thorough check of the stock and the bills. We have re-checked again and found that our bill was correct. The government tax in Nepal in all hotels and restaurants is 13% VAT and... More

This is a famous place, and I have stayed here before, some 10 years ago, in a very different type of room. This time, there was just too much frenetic activity, with adventure-seekers racing around, planning their treks and climbing ventures, meeting in groups, meeting guides, bragging in the lobby about their "latest conquest" of Everest to fawning admirers. People... More

Hello sir, Yes you are right, when you come to KGH at the peak mountaineering time, its a lot of buzz buzz buzz. It becomes quite a crowd. Im sorry you were not happy with the room type but next time I suggest you book a higher category of room. We have to retain the simple category to accommodate the... More

I visited Kathmandu during 23 – 28 March with family and stayed at Kathmandu Guest House (KGH). It is located in a busy tourist area of Thamel and has a very convenient access to the local market area including restaurants, foreign exchange kiosks, mobile telecom services and souvenir shops etc. KGH has a beautiful property, the garden area inside the...

Overall this hotel was a great choice. Based on a Nepali coworker's recommendation, I stayed at KGH for 4 days. After staying in a more expensive Kathmandu hotel for business, KGH was cheaper and the rooms much nicer. The location was great. It was right in the heart of Thamel right near restaurants, bars and a supermarket. And all the... More

We had booked Kathmandu Guest House online and received a confirmation. On arriving at the hotel, we were told that all rooms were booked and our 'confirmation' was useless. We were offered a very dark room in a nearby hotel or a room with a shared bathroom with 10 other rooms in KGH. We opted for the latter because we... More

We were put up in Katmandu for 3 nights in March. We had a great experience at the Katmandu Guest House. The biggest USP of the hotel is that it is located right in the heart of Thamel where all the action is. Mr. Nabin & Mr. Uttam went out of their way to accommodate our needs. They also managed...
