I never made it to Nepal in the 80's, Which I regret. Making up for lost time, I went in April, with the usual dilemmas that apply when looking for a place to stay in a city for the first time. I looked and looked and finally asked my friend who lived in Nepal years ago. He said the only... More

I enjoyed my stay at Kathmandu Guest House. I visited for one night at the start of my trip. I selected a Standard Room. The room was pretty clean, bathroom pretty tiny. The room was tucked away a bit and the outlook was rusty roofs and a a bit depressing! After a week out of Kathmandu I came back to... More

No doubt a very neat and clean hotel. Very good and well appointed rooms, complimentary tea maker and even complimentary noodle packs (this was something new). Nice evening ambience of the restaurant. Food is tasty and sumptuous except for the nepali thali that was quite poorly done and lacked authentic taste. I will recommend the hotel for its central location,... More

I have stayed at the Kathmandu Guest House nearly every year since 1999. I love the place for it's great character being a rambling, constantly evolving former Rana Palace. It is totally individual...constantly evolving. Nabin and the front desk staff have provided great rooms for our students and friends. In 2010 we had no problems retaining rooms beyond our booking...

Kathmandu Guest House is a good hotel. We stayed here on three different occasions throughout our two week tour of Nepal and looked forward to our return each time. The running theme in the reviews is that this is a real peaceful haven in the middle of the bedlam and noise of Thamel, Thamel certainly has its charm but after... More

An excellent stay, both times. Clean and spacious room with excellent helpful staff and a wonderful oasis of peace away from the busy streets of central Thamel. A good launch - pad for a trekking holiday.

Whilst being well located and well appointed we found that the KGH was totally unreliable with respect to honouring reservations. Book at your peril!! We booked months ahead for 2 nights leading into, and for 2 nights after our Everest Base Camp Trek and on both occasions our reservations were disregarded to the point that we had to find alternative...

Centrally located Guest House in the centre of the Thal district. Airport pickup is available. Have stayed during 3 trips to Nepal, and will continue to do do. Building is set back from the road with a guarded gate. The staff are very friendly and provide assistance with any requests. Trekking shops, restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance.
