From the room heating to the basic emineities...they all need much attention. Coordination between the hotel staff is very poor...one may even rate the FO staff as inefficient..Really not upto the mark...Would not recommend for family stays. View from the window on the garden side is great if you dont mind the Pegion poo and dirty panes...

Kathmandu is a fascinating place, but it is nice to come back to an elegant hotel at the end of the day. We found good food and comfortable rooms. We were beginning a month long trek in Nepal, and the hotel was a nice jumping off point.

With a terrific staff of friendly and considerate Nepalese, plus a garden and historical palace setting, the Yak & Yeti Hotel is the only place to stay in Kathmandu. Location is central and the huge garden a bonus of utter relaxation. We know this because we've been staying there annually for several years.

This place is one of the top choices in Kathmandu. I enjoyed my stay here and found nothing lacking (except the free wi-fi was very frustratingly spotty). Puzzled by some of the reviews.
