“Excellent food, great ambience, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

I booked Hotel Mandap for my first day in a 4 day trip to Kathmandu with my wife with apprehension. All 3 start and above hotels were beyond my budget. On reaching Kathmandu, hotel ambiance was a pleasant surprise. It has a great bakery on premises, and an excellent garden restaurant. Room was clean, and had running hot water, and free internet. On our first day, we had lunch and dinner at other places in Thamel, though we noticed that the Mandap hotel restaurant had a fireplace, which kept the indoor part of restaurant warm in evenings.

Nonetheless, I was still unsure whether to change to some higher class hotel the next morning, when we came down for the complimentary breakfast in their garden restaurant. By the time breakfast was over, we had decided to stay in Mandap for the full 4 days. The breakfast was amazing, and was served with grace and smile.

We immediately talked to manager, and he agreed to extend our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, free internet, clean room, excellent restaurant, and excellent bakery throughout our stay. Ill heartily recommend Mandap to anyone on a budget, and looking for great food and clean rooms in Thamel area in Kathmandu.

It was my first time in Kathmandu, and I did what I usually avoid. I approached the travel-agency desk inside the airport. I told them my limit and they choose Hotel Mandap for me with a complementary Taxi-ride to the hotel. Hotel is right in the heart of KTM, Thamel, the tourist area. As you enter the premises you will find a nice little bakery with an excellent coffee and sweets which can be taken at the beautifully maintained garden-café. The hotel-lobby is a little outdated but clean and organised. Check in is fast and efficient. Rooms are as outdated as lobby but clean and simple furnished. AC is working properly in case they have no power cut. Bathroom is very simple and could have been much better maintained. Breakfast á la carte is included in room rates and very tasty.

Now the price - After the first night I aproached the manager and got a reasonable 35% discount for the following few nights. At the new rate the hotel really was value for money.

Rooms are very basic. We choose the cheapest one on ground level. We choose this hotel because it include internet. Don't expect high transfer rate and good connexion but it was very helpful. Good breakfast with a nice bakery just in front.
