Location - excellent, comfort - ok, service - not too good, facilities - average. However, good value for the money you are paying. Very near to the heart of Kathmandu, yet far from the crowd and noise. Electricity was a major concern. Recommended for a stop over of one night max. Otherwise look for some other place.

Hotel Blue Horizon became my base, and home from home during my 3months in Nepal. Great location just on the edge of Thamel, but out of the hustle and bustle. The staff are really friendly and helpful, providing airport transfers, advice on sightseeing and local guides and porters for trekking. Rooms are clean and comfortable for budget hotel. Great roof... More

Recently had a fantastic trip to Nepal. Half trekking, half sightseeing. Booked in at Hotel Blue Horizon directly from airport for one night but ended up using it as our base for next 3 weeks. Hotel is an oasis of calm in the midst of the hustle and pollution of Kathmandu. It provided free and secure storage whilst we travelled... More

The rooms were comfortable, reasonably priced and clean. The location is perfect as you’re close to everything, just a short walk to shops and restaurants. The hotel is also in close proximity to all the popular tourist destinations in Kathmandu. I would avoid the hotel restaurant as I didn’t enjoy their food, much more options on the street. Half of...

I have stayed in a few hotels in Thamel, and this one provided a clean, comfortable setting at a reasonable price. It was nothing special, but the beds were comfortable, and while the linens weren't perfect, but they also weren't the worst I've seen. Clean bathroom, good (hot!) shower, spacious room, good restaurant with good prices, and great outdoor spaces.... More

Very nice rooms. Large and clean with toilets and consistent hot water. Caring and knowledgeable staff. There have been some bad reviews lately but they are mostly based on construction noise (7am to 7pm) and can not be avoided anywhere in Thamel, in fact even hotels that cost three times as much have the same problems. For Thamel and Kathmandu... More
