Stayed in the hotel after six years and the situation has not improved! The rooms, beds, food all need a serious overhaul. As it is one of the heritage hotel located in the prominent area and with the tourist inflow, they are somehow getting away with it. The property is huge but needs proper care and maintenance to meet at... More

It's about a 10 minutes walk from Yak & Yeti hotel to Thamel in Kathmandu. This gives the hotel an excellent location from where you can walk easily to the shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is very clean, nice and cozy. The room I stayed in (shangri-la room) was terrific. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the... More

A 6-night stay at Yak & Yeti provided a very welcome oasis of peace and quiet in contrast to much of Kathmandu outside of the hotel's compound. The room was clean, with some traditional décor (e.g., wood floors, Tibetan carpet along the room-wide window seat (perfect for sitting and for luggage), and quiet. The breakfast buffet is enormous and features... More

Overall, I had a pleasant stay at the Y&Y. I am only giving it a 3 star because the hotel itself feels a bit dated and could benefit from renovations. My room was nice and comfortable for the most part. Bathroom shower appeared to have been updated at some point but the room must not have been used in some... More

The Hotel is located located in the center of one of the most happening town of Nepal, not far from Thamel, if you like to shop. The rooms are good, staff is very humble and helpful. Breakfast served is really amazing.

I must acknowledge Bhakta Raj Bharati's remarkable helping attitude towards the hotel guests. It may may me feel to stay in Yak&Yeti again in future. I will recommend other people to stay in this hotel.
