Being in the heart of Thamel, the noise level is high especially on weekends, but great restaurants and shopping are all around. Holy Lodge has caring staff who can help if something goes wrong. My husband got sick, they helped me change my flight, get medicine, and offered to get doctor to come day or night. I felt safer knowing... More

In comparison to various mountaim huts I stayed in the Langtang Valley area this hotel was average. It wasn't a bad hotel and not a great hotel.It's a place to sleep, get some wi-fi and take a shower.The price is competitive. The reason for not giving a 4 star is that they wrote down my reservation for a second night... More

This was the first place we stayed on our trip to Nepal, and it was nice. The room was spacious, the roof terrace was beautiful and the staff were lovely. We were picked up from the airport, which was a surprise that we hadn't expected, but we didn't realise it was a taxi until about half an hour after we... More

This hotel is in the heart of Thamel district, but fortunately in a relatively more quiet street. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Rooms that have en-suite offer a good shower. Staff are friendly. Rooftop is pleasant. Breakfast acceptable. Overall for a budget range hotel i think this is excellent value for money.

I trekked around Nepal for 3.5 months in Aug-Nov 2015 and every time I went back to Kathmandu between treks, I went back to the Holy Lodge. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The showers are hot. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is basic and food is so-so. The rooftop garden is a great place to... More

Stayed one night here. I got a three person room for myself with a TV and aircon. The aircon didn't work. The toilet didn't flush (I used a bucket to flush it). The shower was very strange and I couldn't get warm water. WiFi worked very well.

I stayed in the Holy Lodge 3 years ago. I enjoyed staying there because it was central, clean and the staff was nice. I always though it was a bit to expensive here. When I came back to Kathmandu after all this time I decided to go with the familiar option and went straight to the Holy Lodge. They charged... More

This hotel is very comfortable. Owner organized my tour including trekking, guide staff, paragliding, hotel and anything I want. That is quite flexible and reasonable for me. But I think the best point of this hotel is staff. They are so kind and friendly. They also can speak English and Japanese very well. I had so much fun. I hope... More

Not overpriced, very well organised, on time and really interesting, just the way we wanted. Hotel is clean, specious, can't imagine better location in Kathmandu than Holy Lodge. People working in there very friendly and helpful. We get... More
