I stayed with friends for 2 nights in early august. The hospitality and service i received was excellent, one of the best among other that i stayed before. Thank-you for making a second home for me in Nepal. It was wonderful stay at your property.

The hotel itself is nothing to be bragging about, but it´s rather clean, very well located in Kathmandu, and the service is brilliant. Staff is very helpful, but - the hotel will be very busy in high season, so make sure they don´t rent out your room to anyone else if you´re a few hours late.

But , this year I planned to stay there once again as I find the location of this hotel very ideal. To, my surprise, the rooms had been redone, air conditioners installed.... More

Driving through the crazy chaos of Katmandu it was a real haven of peace and calm. Clean and cool rooms with the most friendly and attentive staff. Food is good and reasonably priced to eat in the restaurant. Bags were stored for use whilst on our trek and one member of staff even noticed we looked got and just brought... More

The Hotel Norbu Linka is clean, has great staff, a good breakfast buffet, and is inexpensive. This was my 3rd visit to Kathmandu, and I once again stayed at the Norbu Linka for more than half of my nights in Kathmandu. My friends and I went to Nepal to trek to Everest Base Camp, and our trekking company arranged for... More

Staff were lovely and attentive- nothing was too much trouble. Very friendly. Stayed before and after Everest trek- they stored all our luggage and provided us with a pack breakfast for our 5am flight to take with. If it was in our price bracket, we would have definitely stated longer.

I think this hotel has a friendly and helpful staff. I really enjoyed my stay here! I liked the fact that this hotel was not on the main road so I didn't hear the sound of the busy street. They provided a nice warm western breakfast as well nice locally brewed Himalayan coffee. My only complaint is that the internet... More
