I stayed here as a part of a Mt Everest base Camp Trek Package with Outfitter Nepal (which was amazing) but this hotel was not. My boyfriend and I were 19 and on a budget so we had low standards and didn't expect anything too spectacular. Our room; the toilet was coming out of the wall and the toilet seat... More

Hotel Moonlight was taken over in January 2015 by new owners. There is extensive renovations going on to an extremely high standard. Yes there is going to be dust but it's cleaned on an hourly basis, yes it's going to be a bit noisy whilst this is going on but your visit is worth it with the great staff. It... More

I experienced being a part of the Moonlight "family" while staying in Thamel after the major earthquakes recently. I was supported in doing relief work and was comfortable with my room, the food, and the service of all of the staff. I highly recommend this hotel. It is reasonably priced, not fancy, but clean and full of "namaste."

I was recently a guest at Hotel Moonlight when the devastating earthquake struck on 25 April 2015. Thank goodness for the dedication of the staff, who had their own families and homes to worry about, yet they stayed with us ensuring that we were as comfortable as possible and well looked after through the ordeal. We were one of the... More

Managing director Uttam and all empolyees did an outstanding job of providing food and shelter for all trekkers coming and going during complete and utter devastation outside our hotel in Kathmandu. We had running water, electricity, internet, food and shelter. Forever grateful for their hard work while some had lost their homes. Uttam was there to provide support and is... More

It was a very horrible hotel. I spent three nights here after and before the Annapurna trek. I kept here from my trekking company. The manager always want to sale something even I told him that I already have booking. Than he tried to sell sightseeing and mountain flight. The only good thing is the location is quite. The room...

Friendly helpful staff but typically a bit on the tired side. There is better out there if you can be bothered to shop around. If not, Hotel Moonlight is perfectly acceptable for a couple of nights. Excellent location for all the bars and restaurants and trekking gear shops in Thamel.

My partner and I were placed in this hotel whilst we were doing our trekking and I was quite pleased with it. The location is great as it's walking distance to everywhere in Thamel which was convenient as we needed to buy all our trekking gear. The only problem I had with this hotel was the shower. Only once did... More
