A nice, clean, comfortable and great located hotel with good beds, descent wifi, great balcony's, hot water and a very helpful and friendly staff. They provide airport pickup, breakfast, nice (day) trips or biking, and hiking trips via Funny Nepal Treks & Expedition. Together they make a great team to give you a unforgettable stay in Nepal.

Hotel Karma is a nice and quiet place in the busy Thamel area in Kathmandu. It is centrally located and the staff is really helpful and friendly. The provided airport pick-up service was good and at any time you could arrange a taxi at the hotel. It was great to have breakfast at the small terrace in the sun :-)... More

This building, the decor and furnishings are all a bit dated and you may feel you've travelled back in time, however the rooms are spacious, airy and bright. The helpfulness and enthusiasm of the staff is the most welcome thing. With hot water and decent wifi and prime location it's a good choice for Kathmandu.

Karma Hotel was a very clean hotel right in Tamel district in Kathmandu. The staff were very helpful when it came to changing money, booking taxis, etc. Breakfast on the roof top was good although not excellent. For Kathmandu standards it is a quiet hotel apart from the generator that is needed during the winter when there is not enough... More

Hotel Karma was nice, clean, in a nice area (plenty of restaurant and shops) and a nice and helpful staff. We were in Kathmandou in winter time (December) and it was freezing! Well, don't expect any kind of heating system in the rooms, you will be really cold (our window didn't seem to close pretty well.) There is hot water,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Karma Hotel, off and on, for the two weeks we were in Nepal. The staff was the best thing about the place -- very sweet and helpful.

Decent hotel with a friendly staff. Is perfectly located, clean and fairly/cheaply priced. Higly recommendable to everyone (backpackers, families, businnes trip etc) except those looking for exclusiveness.
