“Good Western-type hotel in Kathmandu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

A group of us spent 3 days at this hotel. It is very well run with very good service and unlike some others, it has trustworthy wiring and plumbing. Food is good to and prices very reasonable. Interestingly, they charge per person whether you have a single or double room. At present, the nearby main road is being widened so is a mess but a quick taxi ride gets you anywhere (should be no more than 500 R to Durbar Sq). Nearby shops are few and higher priced than elsewhere. I can't understand why this hotel is not higher rated among those in Kathmandu.
Hotel seems to be largely favoured by trekkers rather than locals.

Room Tip: I suspect rooms on the front will be quieter. I had dogs barking and some kind of generator much of...

Dear Quicksy,

Namaste and Tashi Delek!

Thank you so much for your review. Yes, we do have trust worthy wiring and plumbing as it is most necessary. As you have mentioned food served in our various outlets are good and very reasonably priced. Our property being 15 years old, we have become a favorite for trekkers and other individual travelers for our good service and friendly staff.

We hope to see you again!

Best Regards
Roji

We stayed at Hotel Tibet in Kathmandu for 3 nights. It is a smaller "homey" hotel with all of the conveniences of any hotel. It is owned by a family from Tibet, and was built in the 50's. the finish and decorating are magnificent! The staff were all very helpful - and the food and service were great. We stayed before after a trek to the Annapurna Base Camp - and felt as if we were returning home on our return. The hotel is in a vert quiet neighborhood, yet convenient to walk to area attractions. There is no doubt where we would stay if we return to Kathmandu!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front, higher level preferred.

This is a super hotel, with a beautiful view and very helpful, well-trained staff. The atmosphere was warm and homey and we felt welcome and cared for. The entire hotel, and our very spacious room with its own terrace are very tastefully decorated in the TIbetan style, and the room had all the amenities one can expect. The restaurant serves wonderful meals and there is also a pleasant open terrace for tea or drinks (or even full meals). A visit to the Spa is just heaven. Thank you!

Room Tip: Only stayed in one room, but it was great !

Tucked away from all the noise and the hustle and bustle of mainstream Kathmandu, this little hotel is a Gem! Clean rooms, good food and friendly service is all that you need and that is exactly what you will get. Close to the main shopping area (Thamel) and with it's only backyard of local fare, the hotel is perfect for a quick stopover, to your travels in Nepal . Would defiitely receommend!

I have been lodging for 6 das in october at Tibet Hotel.I have appreciate every moment. The hotel is well located rar enough from the noise and the dust of Katmandhu but near enough Thamel(15 minutes walk). The room are clean and confortable The food is good but most of it the staff is very kind. Also the service of the travel desk is very effective. They booked all my plane;porters and visit with rapid services and good prices.It is an excellent choice of hotel You will not regret it

Room Tip: Room 503 was fantastic!!!

I recently stayed at Hotel Tibet, on my way to and from Mount Kailash in Tibet.

I like this hotel a lot. I used to stay here more than 10 years ago. They still have the same friendly and warm staff, which had left a deepmimpression on me in the earlier visit. The hotel has recently bee renovatd and is really very attrative. They hava an Illy Coffee bar, and the food is good.

Hard to say why exactly, probably a matter of many factors, but this is my favorite hotel in Kathmandu. I just veel really comfortable there. I can safely reccomed this place

Room Tip: Back side away from elevator.
