Staff was inattentive and rude. They were rarely around and when you found them they were put out that you bothered them. The menu does not match what is offered. Breakfast is only a buffet and is not good. Even if you have only coffee and a croissant youre charged full price. When I asked to order from the menu... More

the staff and the service are great friendly and helpful. It is set in beautiful peaceful gardens - the rooms and bathrooms are great and it is right in the middle of Thamel at the end of a little cul de sac

Nice hotel, charming garden and well located. A nice green spot in the busy area of Thamel, the garden is really nice. Room are clean, service is good and people are friendly, but I suggest to eat outside because food is poor.

This hotel is located in the heart of Thamel where many trekkers and climbers want to be. The rooms are getting a bit run down but the garden makes up for it. The garden is a sanctuary from the craziness of Kathmandu. The staff is fabulous, the roof tops have great views of the mountains (when they are out) and... More

Nirvana Garden Hotel is situated in the heart of Thamel District. It's a few meters away from the main road so expect a peaceful somber during night. The room is basic but comfy. The bathroom has a glass window that gives you a perfect view of the garden area. Me and my friend stayed most of the time at our... More

I stayed here as part of an Intrepid trip. The rooms were a bit dark, but had a little balcony overlooking a large garden. The garden was a nice place to chill. There is a pond there, but... all the plants were covered in a thick layer of dust. I think Kathmandu is generally a very dusty city. The attached... More

This hotel is very tired. It is adequately clean, but rather depressing. It is well located in Thamel. Breakfast buffet was pretty good and targets western tourists. Hotel is next to a new construction site so fair amount of noise including early in the am from nearby construction (this seems to be true throughout Thamel).
