We arrived here after two weeks in rural India, so the accommodations seemed elegant, with soft beds, real showers with bathtubs and towels and toilet paper. The staff is helpful and kind. You can hang out in the lobby in comfortable couches and take advantage of the library. Our breakfast was adequate-eggs, oatmeal, cold cereal and breads. I did not... More

Stayed here for a week because of a recommendation. Appliances are old and the walls in the room were really dirty. Bathroom could use some renovation as well. Breakfast was just okay and in Kathmandu pace. Location is goo, in the heart of Thamel, but also surrounded by about 3 bars with loud music until bout 2 am every day... More

Noise continued till 3am from traffic, roller shutters, drunks shouting from the street, loud music etc. Obviously it is not a place to chill and have a good night sleep after a week of hard work at the far west Nepal! Roof top garden under repair and service not reflective of the usual Nepali warmth!

I stayed in the extension which offers rooms for about 10 USD, or 1000 NPR in season time, The rooms are nice and clean, And the staff is really friendly, you can leave your extra luggage if you are planning on going to for hike or something, The only problem is that it`s very loud at night so if you...

We picked a budget room and paid 2200 INR. But when we reached the hotel they said the pictures on the website are wrongly put and they are not for the budget rooms. They made us stay in another building which as per them was an extension of the hotel. The room was horribly small and not very tidy. Similar... More

My partner and I were on a budget trip to Nepal and a friend suggested Excelsior. The hotel itself has spacious rooms for around $30 a night, but the hotel provide an extension for budget travellers for $10 a night which was perfect for us. We stayed in our simplistic room (which was all we needed) which had a couple... More

The Hotel is located in the center of Thamel,so you can find all the shops and restaurants nearby. You can go shopping around the area and find a few pretty... More

I stayed here five years ago and then it seemed this was once an ornate hotel that had seen better days. But five years on it has totally gone to seed. Electric was off most of the time, no hot (or even warm) water for shower, there were bugs in the rooms and the bathrooms, and the service was surly.... More

This hotel was advertised to have hot water showers and when we arrived- it didn't. We later heard from other travellers that it's a hit and miss with their hot showers. So I guess we were out of luck. Apart from the hot water showers, this was a very nice hotel. Everything was quite basic but it had everything we... More

We stayed at Excelsior for 5 nights. Nepal was part of our tour to Asia. We also had India on our platter but we first visited Nepal. The beauty of Nepal was breath taking. It was not a very crowded place but peaceful. Our hotel was situated in Thamel which is a central location and a busy, popular colorful market... More
