This hotel offers all you could want with an ideal location, very close to the shops and some sights but off the main road so very little noise/dust. Very attentive staff with spacious rooms. a separate bar area is pleasant for a pre/post dinner drink and the restaurant offers a varied menu with good wine and beer. Sadly we did... More

This is not a fancy expensive hotel, but a standard hotel with good hot water shower, breakfast included was pretty good too. The great thing about this hotel is that while it is in Thamel district, it is off the main street, so it doesn't suffer from the street noise that my friends got staying at other hotels. That makes... More

This is a good hotel on the edge of Thamel. Relatively quiet, but still an easy walk to the heart of Thamel, and an easy walk to many places in Kathmandu. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The breakfast was excellent as well. The room was nice and spacious. Nice rooftop area to relax at. The garden dining area... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Norbu Linka, located in Thamel with easy access to shops and restaurants. It is located away from the busy street, and the outdoor dining area is a very pleasant place to enjoy breakfast. The room was quiet and comfortable. I appreciated the free WiFi , which is not offered by many places in... More

Located in Thamel, close enough to walk to the shops, cafés and restaurants, but just far enough to get away from the busy street noise and honking cars. Our room was clean and comfortable. My only criticism would be that the wifi internet is very slow. We had to go to restaurants and cafés to use their wifi.

My son and I stayed at Hotel Norbu Linka several times during our three week trip through Nepal and Tibet. It was a joyful thing to return to the comforts and familiar faces between each expedition. They were friendly and took care of our every need... I'm not kidding: at 3:00AM I needed to get to the hospital and the... More

We want to thank you for the wonderful stay we had at your hotel. We enjoyed the Thamel location so close to shops and activities. Your beds were comfortable and we loved the garden breakfast buffet. Thanks for your attentive service and polite staff. Stefan and Gale
