The manager helped me to arrange a flight ticket to New Delhi cheaper than even one found in momondo.com It is a well located guest house in Kathmandu. They offer good food for a reasonable price. Helpful management.

I've been staying at Red Planet for four years now--every time I visit Kathmandu (which is quite often since I moved to Nepal 3 years ago). The staff (esp. Puspa) has always gone out of their way to make my stay comfortable and affordable, and the location is fantastic: just on the edge of the main tourist bazaar, Thamel. The... More

I stayed here for two days. Though it was a business trip, i prefered staying at this area as i wanted to be close to the most hapening area in kathmandu and i was right. situatedin the heart of the place it has nice rooms and a lot of bars near by to roam and hop. service is also good.

I have stayed , 2012 with my 4 other friends. Rooms are clean enough. Foods are good. It was good fun to drink beer at terrace. I think when you think about cost, it is a good choice. It is also very central.10 minutes by walking to durbar square and 5 minutes by walking to bus station...

Arrived in the city in a bit of a pinch and had to take the last room available here, so maybe that's why it was in such a sorry state? I'm not sure what any of the other rooms here were like. As far as our room goes, it was probably the worst I have ever stayed in. The bedding... More

The rooms here are not the cleanest to be had but the staff were very friendly and helped organise our visas to India. They were even able to deliver them to Pokhara for us as we were scheduled to leave before the visas had been returned which was really great. The hotel is located in a quiet area, very close...

This is my 34th country traveling including Africa and Asia and I don’t think I’ve stayed at a room that had such a unique combination of uncleanliness. The spacious room had three twin beds, each covered in old stained sheets with plenty of rips and holes, and various stray hairs. The walls haven’t seen a new coat of paint, let... More
