Rooms are ok & clean, some are better than others. Best asset of this hotel is obviously it's garden, a true oasis in busy Thamel. Great place for a drink too, unfortunately the staff who serve the garden are so miserable that it's almost impossible to order a drink. So it's better to bring your own.

Nirvana Garden is a short walk from the bustling centre of Thamel but once you enter the Hotel it is an oasis of calm. The garden is lovely but can be a bit noisy in the day as it is next to a school. Rooms vary in size and it is best to go first floor with a balcony overlooking... More

Our tour operator booked us in this hotel and it is perfectly adequate for a budget sty in Kathmandu. Rooms are quite large, and we had hot water and a balcony. Breakfast is nothing to write home about. The staff are very friendly and helpful. In fact the recalled that I had been there several years previously Wifi is available.... More

You should expect a different standard than, what you would get in Europe or North America. But considering Nepal, I think that this is a quite good hotel, you have a nice garden to relax in, it is smack in the middle of Thamel, which is the hotspot for tourists, and honestly we had some surprisingly quiet nights. Our only... More

Nirvana is not 5*****, but you can not wait more with this rate, 30-40 euros. Garden is great with your own cat and bird, restaurant is great and not too exspensive, WIFI is slow and sometimes not working. When tired noise in Thamel, this is great. Nice shops are round the corner, and my favourite is shop making t-shirts etc,... More

I stayed here two nights before heading to Everest base camp trek. Location it's perfect, rooms are big but very old fashion, not too much water on the shower. The buffet bfast was fine, people were smiling and helpful. This said for the price I wouldn't stay here again.

When We went to this hotel asking for room, they asked back whether it is for Nepali or foreigner. When we said we want room for us (we were 2 male colleagues of same organization) they ignored to provide to Nepali. The staff at reception demeaned us for being Nepali. It is the incident of 6th-Oct-2015 around 7 PM. I... More

Dear Mr. Bhandari, We regret the unfortunate incident. However, as a policy we do not encourage to accommodate local guests of unknown background because of numerous problems with the police that we had to face earlier. We are warned to allow local guests only of authenticated background and with some reliable reference. So we accommodate only either persons of travel... More

We stayed at this great hotel before departing to Everest Base Camp and on our return. The service was first class and staff were so accommodating and courteous. Unfortunately, we were in Kathmandu when the earthquake struck. The hotel provided a safe haven to shelter and staff stayed at their posts to look after and serve their customers in the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nirvana Garden-Hotel is located in a tranquil oasis right in the heart of Thamel: Kathmandu's hub of touristic area, within walking distance of the Royal Palace Museum, the shopping and business district and areas of touristic interest. One step away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel, guests can enjoy the serene comfort of an expansive and lush landscaped garden replete with a rocky waterfall and a profusion of flowers, trees and birds. The hotel is unique, starting from its prime location, a spacious parking area, the ambiance and decor of the lobby and rooms to the Nepalese architecture of the hotel structure. The service is friendly but efficient and polite but personal, catering to all the needs of a discerning guest. The hotel aims to provide international standard accommodation and service with a touch of warm Nepalese hospitality at very affordable prices. ... more   less
