Journey is a deep ingrained memory - an experience to reminisce, an escapade to cherish, a secret to smile over. You recall, you talk, you laugh, you ponder - you face a whole range of emotions over that "particular incident" in that "particular hotel." Your memory is all the more enriched when something happens in a special hotel. In KGH you can be assured that your memory is highlight that will sparkle throughout your life.

By far the nicest hotel in Thamel - a really nice large private courtyard and covered outdoor eating. We have stayed at several KGH hotels (Maya Manor, one in Pokhera and on in Chitwan) and they are all fantastic. This original in Thamel is no exception - Great staff, really nice rooms and a fantastic atmosphere. Guarded and fenced facility with a great buffet breakfast and on site shops and services. Western and Nepali food is served and all staff speak english. I highly recommend you pay the additional few dollars per night for this experience in Kathmandu. SUPER CLEAN !!

All of the staff at the Kathmandu Guest House were remarkable from reception to the Garden Cafe Restaurant and Housekeeping Services. This group is outstanding and certainly a tribute to the KGH itself. The location of the KGH is fortunately in the centre of Thamel, Kathmandu with its amazing street markets. There was one especially noteworthy staff member in the front office, Relove Gyawali by name, whose experience beyond his young age and his pleasant demeanour allowed him to quietly and effectively help us navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 situation. He went well beyond his professional obligation, and for this we are truly thankful. He has planned a career in hospitality and our prediction is that he will do very well. He, like this unique hotel, is exceptional! Dorothy, Ted and Rob

Situated in the middle of Thamel area, handy for all the shops and restaurants. Comfortable room with a great shower - bliss to get rid of the dust at the end of the day! The garden was very nice but noisy during the day due to all the surrounding building works. Quiet at night though. Breakfast buffet was good and although there was a day menu, there were limited places to sit. Either outside (noisy in the day and cool in the evening) or the breakfast room which was a little plain. Better to eat out! Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Excellent stay in all aspects. We spent 4 nights, 2 different rooms and loved it. Breakfast was included and the food was great. The garden is an Oasis. It is located in the neighborhood of Thamel, a very centralized area in relation to shops and restaurants. One small note, the hotel pick ups are only for international flights. We spent 6 days trekking in the mountains and when we called to have a pick up they refused. We did realize once we arrived from the mountains that, no hotels do pick ups in the domestic terminal. With that said, just walk to the international terminal which is 20 meters to left of the domestic terminal.

Words are inadequate to describe quite how wonderful KGH is. I first stayed in the 1990s, KGH was quite a budget place and I was young and loved it. I stayed in February 2020 and discovered that I still do. Since the earthquake in 2015 they have carefully, beautifully rebuilt it, brick by brick. The rooms, the courtyard garden, the restaurant, all of it is lovely and the staff are kind and courteous to an unusual degree. They do their jobs because they clearly want to welcome you and make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The rooms and bathrooms have been furnished with style but more importantly, thought for the design. If life allows I shall return many times, hopefully with my family. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
