Maya Manor is a historic mansion turned boutique hotel. The original building of the mansion was built by the first chief of police in Nepal, Toran Sumsher Rana in 1935. This was also the official residence of Chinese Ambassadors for 10 years in the 1960’s. In 1974, the Sakya family of the KGH Group of Hotels and Resorts bought the mansion and lived here until it was converted into a boutique hotel in 2016. In 2008, The Carter Center moved to the south wing of the mansion to monitor the historic election that marked the transition from the monarchical rule to parliamentary democracy in Nepal. President Carter came regularly to the Maya Manor to oversee the mission. The south wing has been named the Carter Wing in honor of his mission and his time at the mansion. The magnificently restored Maya Manor stands tall near the former Royal Palace showcasing the architectural grandeur of European colonial influence in South Asia. This style of architecture is a combination of Palladian, Corinthian, Neoclassical, and Baroque, and was introduced to Nepal by its aristocratic dictators, the Ranas (1846-1951). In order to maintain sovereignty and make peace with British Raj, the Ranas went on diplomatic missions to Britain and brought back this type of architectural flavor. These European- influenced mansions are peppered throughout the valley, some of which are notable governmental buildings like the Singha Durbar (Parliament and House of Representatives) and the Rastrapati Bhawan (Official Presidential Residence). The earthquake in 2015 partially damaged the mansion, but it was meticulously renovated by the founding Chairman of the KGH chain, Karna Sakya. A new block of seven-storied buildings with the same old colonial architecture was added to turn it into a hotel in 2016.

Stayed here for 4 nights on a work trip and it’s an excellent boutique property. The helpfulness of the staff is incredible. The room was of a good size and well equipped. It was very clean and had modern amenities. The hotel is a 10 to 15 minute walk from Thamel and an easy taxi ride to everywhere. The restaurant has really good food and a variety of options. Great location and highly recommended!

We enjoyed a 2 night stay here recently. The building is magnificent and whoever did the interior design work did a spectacular job. It’s like a museum with many artifacts and related stories. We had a large room and we always do a quick clean on our own before setting in. We were surprised to find tables and ledges to be very dusty and the coffee tabletop and counters to be very in need of a scrub. Housekeeping needs to have more respect for the beautiful surroundings. We peaked in a smaller room and did not see these issues but glass shelves in the lobby area had gone undulated for many days. HIGHS -Gorgeous building and high taste level in furnishings -Bed was very comfortable but pillow were cheap foam type -Rainfall shower enclosed by curtain -Staff was very helpful -Wifi was good -Restaurant had many food choices and very tasty with good service however it looked like tablecloths had not been laundered recently or required replacement LOWS -Room areas, lobby shelves, restaurant table cloths were not nearly as clean as they should be -Kleenex and TP not replaced by housekeeping when they ran out -No luggage rack in our room -Towels old and dingy -Step into bathroom (not in most rooms) could be dangerous -No place to hang Dopp kit in bathroom If you chose to stay in the beautiful building you may want to check out your room before unpacking.

I found Maya Manor Boutique Hotel and relaxing place to come back to after the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. Its proximity to Thamel and centrality was very convenient. I like that it has a history to the building and that the historyhas been well presented.

I booked this hotel via Expedia. An absolute bargain price for a superb hotel. Staff are wonderful. Nothing to much trouble. Furnishings of highest standard. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the breakfast was only warm not hot. I went for breakfast at 8 am, if they could keep food hot it would make such a difference. They cooked my eggs to order and they were superb.
