It was lovely to return to Hotel Yambu in Thamel after two long years and find the place fresh and clean with the same friendly staff still there. Hotel Yambu is at the top end of Thamel next to a massive Bhodi tree inside off the main roads so is very quiet. They have now made an entry from one of the main streets of Thamel so it is easy to walk to from anywhere in Thamel. Taxis or cars can pull up at the main gate for ease of access. It looks like they have done a lot of work to keep it clean and fresh and the rooms were very comfortable with attached bathroom. The managers really make an effort to welcome you personally and there is a lovely eating area downstairs done out in traditional style with new prayer flags above the entrance. My room was very comfortable. It is worth a walk up to the roof level with spectacular views across Kathmandu valley and a view of the snow-capped peaks on a clear day. The prices are very reasonable, and it is possible to stay for just a night or for a longer time. They also provide airport pick up and drop which is handy. It’s a great location for sightseeing trips around the Kathmandu Valley.

We've been staying at Hotel Yambu in Kathmandu for a week and I must say I rarely had such a comfortable and thoughtfulness approach. Raj and his staff made sure we had a great stay and they've been veery helpful for everything we needed. Best value for exceptional care!

It is a nice place. Rooms were very clean. If you are a looking for a cheap and good accomodation, then Yambu is a good option,situated in Thamel, Kathmandu. Staff was very cooperative and humble towards their client. They have a small restuarant and you can have breakfast, tea and good food as well. They also have a seperate room for keeping luggage, they offered me to keep my extra luggage in the room before leaving for Kaislash. From Pakistan, I was treated very well.

Raj, the manager, clearly loves helping people make the most of their Nepal visit. He goes above and beyond to satisfy his guests. If there’s something particular you want to see, he will arrange it. He will also offer suggestions of out of the way, unique places that you wouldn’t see otherwise. The staff is equally friendly, and always willing to help. The hotel has nice rooms, comfy beds, relaxing terraces, and yummy food! Stay here, enjoy a cup of tea on one of the terraces, and soak in Nepal. Highly recommend!
