I stayed in Excelsior many times in the past two years. I love the place because it’s clean, with great location and amazing staff. The rooftop is beautiful and breakfast very tasty. Would definitely recommend.

Hotel's Favorite
So wonderful to be back in the Excelsior Hotel in Thamel. Each time I find it has more comforts. The rooms are clean, have comfortable beds and large bathroom. There’s a TV, fridge, A/C, kettle, glasses etc and Wi-Fi available. Up near the top they now have beautiful new and bigger rooms for added space. The new roof garden, restaurant and bar are amazing! I spent so much time there enjoying the sunshine and views. The restaurant has huge windows and glass doors and you feel like you’re sitting in the beautiful garden. The owner, Kunsang is a fountain of information and so helpful. The Garden of Dreams and the ancient temples of Durbar Square are in easy walking distance, lovely in the early morning when the shops and street markets are being spread out. The Hotel being in Thamel has shops, supermarket and great cafes and restaurants to explore. It’s my home from home.

I would like to rate this hotel at excellent as it actually is. I stayed in this hotel with my family and due to their service and quality of the sleep I had booked another two rooms for my relatives too. We stayed three nights in this hotel and again came back for 2 more nights. Glad that I had booked this hotel and choose to stay on my arrival and departures of my flights. Rooms size were massive with splendid beds, clean sheets and towels, & touches of complementary toiletries, mineral waters and tea/coffees. In addition, all the rooms were with the balcony where you can enjoy coffee and c.. :) Lobby at Reception is idle for doing desk activities and is always peaceful. I'll be recommending my friends and colleagues about this gems and also will be back in future to stay in this hotel.

The Hotel Excelsior hotel is five stars except for some minor design flaws. For example my wife could not turn off or on the shower. The shower nobs are round unless you have a grip impossible to turn on or off. To open the door to the room we had to put our shoulders on the door. Our room was truly for strong men. There are very few outlets for our electronic, iPhones, iPads, Apple watch. Otherwise this is a five star hotel, good service, great fitness center, wonderful concierge, go location next to the train station. If you have strong hands and travel with few electronics this may be the perfect hotel for you. Go ENJOY!

I am returning to Nepal after a year and a half. Since my last visit, the fifth floor of the hotel has been fully renovated into a more modern space. It's great to see that Hotel Excelsior has kept it's standard consistently high. The rooftop restaurant again was my favourite morning coffee spot with a spectacular view. The rooms are clean, linens are fresh, constant hot water available, and great room service. These are basics of a good hotel, but you will be surprised that other hotels in Kathmandu do not offer these. I am especially thankful to the staff of Excelsior, very welcoming and helpful. I will be staying at Excelsior again for my next visit in 2020.
