“Clean comfortable lodge with wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2010

My husband and I had a lovely 3 nights stay at this lodge. The owners and staff were wonderfully helpful and gladly made all necessary arrangements for us. They arranged mountain flight and a day trip to Dhulikhel. This lodge is located just 15 minutes drive by taxi from the International airport and the lodge’s airport representative came to pick up us at the airport and on our departure they provided us drop off service as well. We highly recommend this hotel for the good hospitality, cleanliness and décor

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

We spent about 6 nights here before and after our Himalaya trek. The price was great 700NR per night, we had upper floor rooms in the back building what were bright, clean, had their own bathroom & TV, the guys were very friendly and the location is right in the middle of thamel and a short stagger home from the Electric Pagoda.
I certainly would stay here on a future visit to KTM

Holy Lodge is a really good budget choice place to stay in Kathmandu. The back building has very small basic rooms with shared bathrooms, the front building has newer, bigger rooms with bathrooms. Upstairs in the back building the rooms have TV and ensuite and you also have access to the rooftop balcony which has beautiful views of the Himalayas.

The staff in Holy Lodge are friendly and helpful and its in the perfect spot right in the centre of Thamel. You can also negotiate a better price if you plan on staying a couple of weeks.

Its an excellent choice if money is tight but youd like to stay somewhere clean, safe and secure.
