As a frequent business traveler I always take the advice of those who have traveled before me, especially in places I have not visited before. My dear friend had traveled to Nepal on many occasions prior, and had recommended KGH highly. She knew I needed quiet, cleanliness, efficient service and a speedy wifi. I also like to be close to...

We traveled with our 2 kids, and stayed at KGH several times during our stay in Nepal. When we came back from trekking or from Katmandu's surroundings, it felt like coming home. The stuff is professional and very kind. The gardens are little piece of heaven in the Thamel. We truly recommend staying at KGH.

The Kathmandu Guest House is beautiful. The staff is helpful, on point and obviously care about their guests. I came and went a few times during my time in Nepal, because of this I stayed in three different rooms.. All three were clean, roomy and comfortable. The breakfast is superb, love an omelet bar. If I ever return to Nepal... More

I stayed here with my friend for 5 nights total last spring on three different occasions, coming and going from multiple treks and long bus rides. First, I love how they will meet me at the airport arrivals for free, so nice after a long flight. The management in particular is excellent, taking good care of us every time we... More

There were good things and bad things about my stay here, and I was sick so probably a little less tolerant than normal. When I arrived it was pouring rain. About 5 staff members just stood at the door (beside a pile of hotel umbrellas) and watched me struggle with all my luggage by myself, about 100m from the car,... More

First of all a hats off for this hotel. :) It takes around 20 minutes (by car) to reach this hotel from Kathmandu airport. The hotel has its own pick and drop facility from the airport, that is so nice of them. There is an ATM counter in front of the hotel for cash withdrawal (National and International). There is...

I was introduced to this hotel by one of my friends during my trip to Nepal. I was getting very apprehensive as we were driving through busy, narrow streets of Thamel and then into a very uninspiring car-park. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised as we reached the front entrance / lobby of the hotel. Despite... More
