We stayed at this hotel for about 15 days. The employees were extremely friendly. Like to mention one particular employee who works in different department but musty we see her in the breakfast time. Her name is Komal .She went beyond her duty to help us. Other were also very helpful. The hotel is kept in good standard. Only suggestion I have is to upgrade on the breakfast menu and smoke free rooms need to smoke free. We had to call for help because we were smiling smoke Oder at middle of night. Over all we had nice stay.

Excellent location to visit Kathmandu. The hotel is supposed to be a 5 star hotel but it needs a lot of refurbishing. However, it has so many positive aspects apart from its location.
The staff is friendly.
Heritage rooms are nicely decorated in Nepali style
The room is very comfortable, specially with space to put all your luggage.
Highly recommended to ask for a garden view.
Breakfast was really excellent. Great variety and you could ask for different options that they would cook for you. Great opportunity to taste local and Indian food as well.
Bathroom amenities included even toothbrush and toothpaste apart from the usual.
We enjoyed our stay.

We were located in the older section for this visit, but the room standard was good with comfortable beds and good shower/bath - the 2 main requirements of a room. The hotel was undergoing some small renovation which did not impact the stay and the front of desk staff were helpful and attentive. The stand-out for us was the Chimney restaurant where, suspecting most people only stay 1 night in transit by staying 3 nights we lost became part of the family, with offers of food samples and extra Nepali marsala tea gratefully accepted. In addition whilst my wife wanted to keep things quiet the hotel checked her passport as her birthday fell on our last night resulting in a Birthday cake arriving unexpectedly...so for us a great 3 days with nice attention and service.

We had a regional conference for Asia & pacific here during November in this hotel. The hotel looks very grandeur and impressive with a beautiful garden and pool. AND all the good things for the hotel ended there.
The management and staffs all were such un-professionals that we wondered how could a five-star hotel be like this!! We were around 600 people all together for 3 days; 120 rooms were booked at this hotel but except airport transfer no other service could be felt satisfactory. If I write this list can go on and on....
In short Never trust this hotel.We have officially decided not to choose this hotel for any event or accommodation for our guests.... neither we recommend for any one coming to Nepal

We would give this hotel a five star review if it wasn’t for the Spa.
Avoid the spa at all cost. Underrated massage ( very noisy ) and not professional with high prices. The locals ( not guests ) also use this spa and therefore no privacy and very noisy. Massages are supposed to be quiet and relaxing.
Food is excellent. A visit to “ The Chimney “ restaurant is a must.

We stayed at the Yak & Yeti after completing the EBC Trek, and it was such a nice luxurious experience after the accommodations we had been staying in on the trek. This hotel was included as part of our "luxury" EBC Trek itinerary.

Room: We had a huge room complete with a living room (multiple couches, working desk, two TVs) as well as a bedroom with a king-sized bed. There was a walk-through closet to to a nice bathroom with a super hot shower. The provided robes & slippers were comfy. We were sick after the trek, and this room was so nice to stay in.

Food: We didn't try the restaurants (we were sick and didn't want to put on non-pajamas) but had room service multiple times. The food was only okay but came with a hefty price tag. The restaurants might have better food.

Other: There are beautiful shops on the main floor of the lobby with all kinds of lovely jewelry and other souvenirs. The grounds have a tennis court, pool, and a beautiful walking garden. It's a slice of beauty in the craziness of Kathmandu. Internet was great.

Loved the pool view from our room ..was a bit cold so didnt enjoy the pool though.
Well maintained hotel with exceptional service.
The restaurant experience in the restaurant the chimney was very pleasant. We had the chicken satay as starter and later a risotto and pasta with white sauce. The service was formidable and sitting outside on the terrace in the hotel garden was very calming after a long day of walking around.
Would love to go back and visit it for sure.

Stayed with Yak & Yati last weekend (10-13 Dec 22) for a family weekend Trip. The visit was really made memorable primarily because we decided to stay at Hotel Yak & Yati. It just happened that I emailed to hotel enquiring about the availability and the best rates and Mr. Rabinson responded promptly over email and subsequently spoke with me and made me absolutely comfortable. Once we checked in Hotel, he ensured that our stay was comfortable through out.
The Hotel is centrally located, wonderfully connected, staff is very good and helpful. All that you need. Hotel Yak & Yati made our trip absolutely memorable.

In the center of Kathmandu close to all possible services and shops, very spacious room with gorgeous view on the internal garden with pond swimming pool and colorful flowers. Nevertheless the most pleasant aspect is when you go the the restaurant named "Spicy Room". The re the food , indy style, is excellent specially when served by two beautiful and extremely gentle maids: ANISHA and ANITA to whom I want to convey my most grateful thanks.

The Hotel is Cousy, well organized, clean and the staff extremely helpful and kind. Plus the Internet connection is very good never let's you down, like it happened to me in more pretentious 5stars in Kathmandu.
The restaurant Spice room, cooks good Indian food, it is quiet and never noisy, and all the staff and the waiters are among the nicest I interacted in my many missions worldwide. In particularly Anisha, one the waitresses, goes the extra mile to make the client feel at ease and happy, advising about choices and offering quick services, always present without imposing, fantastic service. For this reasons I dined at the Spice room during 3 consecutive nights. I would advise the Y&Y to anyone.

Hello Cathyd, my recommendation would be you contact the hotel. I stayed there in May this year and could not have been happier but I believe the pool is not heated and I did not see any indoor pool either. Hope this helps. Enjoy your stay.
