Stayed at the hotel with a friend for 3 nights before a tour of Nepal and had a lovely stay. The Location/General Hotel Layout The location of the hotel was ideal and on a side street just off the main road in Thamel. Whilst the decoration of the hotel is not to everyone’s taste (and quite chintzy) we found it to be cosy, comfortable and clean and found the quirkiness endearing. Room The room was bright, clean and comfortable with little quirks such as a stuffed toy tiger on the bed (cute touch!) and funny signs that could be put on the door. The mini-bar (whilst more expensive than shops outside) was extremely cheap by U.K. standards and so we also utilised this. I’m a deep sleeper so did not hear any outside night although my friend (a light sleeper) did say there was some traffic noise but not too much. Staff All staff we came across were extremely helpful with reception especially being extremely pleasant and helpful (every time we passed they waved and said hello regardless of what time day or night!) Breakfast We were able to have breakfast very early if we wished which was ideal if we had to set off early that date. We just advised the receptionist the night before. Breakfast was also a good selection with a variety of options. Generally For the price we paid we found the hotel to be great in terms of location, value and comfort and would recommend this hotel to any visitor to Kathmandu looking for a well located, clean and reasonably priced stay. Whilst not somewhere to spend all day, we only used it as a base to sleep, wash etc and found it great.…

Friendley staff. Big room. Good bed. Great location, not to noisy but central. 100% satisfaction. Next time I visit I will go for this Hotel again. Workout area with all basic stuff. Thank you for a great visit.
The room is clean, spacious and nicely decorated. They provide warm blanket and soft pillow. Hot water wasn't always available. Was able to take a bath with warm water at night but had to wait until the morning to get the hot water again. Rooftop terrace was small but cozy and quiet.
A cozy and neat hotel. Clean and tidy, and a lot quieter than the hotels I stayed before in Kathmandu. Friendly staff, with a warm atmosphere, a very nice boutique hotel. It's not exactly on the main streets in the city centre, but just a couple of minutes more of a walk, definitely worth the extra steps.
I can’t figure out the target clientele for this place. Nouveau riche Chinese? Over the hill Russian oligarchs maybe? It’s weird and tawdry. Good luck waiting on that hot water. Service is attentive and pleasant but that’s about all this place has to offer. They have two locations and you can’t tell which one your booked in till you show up at the hotel. Be prepared to walk “only one minute” to the other location . . . place called The Royal Penguin🙄. There are better choices in Thamel at this price point.
i am delighted to write this reviews about this hotel,which is in 5* level,service wise,food wise,rood wise.extremely happy to know that such a boutique hotel is available in Nepal. Mr.Nepali who made our stay such a good ,that we won,t forget ,his service styles is so convincing ,that he seems to have a good experience to deal with the guest. his ability shows that the own must be happy to have such a personality in f & b department. we had lunch,dinner,and beverage too.it's really good and best one with the pricing,and everything they provided us.
Aria Boutique Hotel is suited for those who enjoy the buzz of touristy activities. Lots of shopping around. The staff are very friendly, everyone. Good spread of breakfast choices. However, the room facilities were poorly maintained. Broken wardrobe and drawer. Cracked shower head. Shower pressure is good but it took a long time to heat up the water, hence, inadvertently waste water.
I liked the location. I stayed nine days. The hotel was walking distance to Durban Square and other local temples. The room rate was very good and the breakfast and overall service were excellent. The room and bath were clean and adequate. Both needed a lot of minor repairs...broken dresser drawer handles and quite a bit of caulking in the bathroom. There wasn’t an elevator and my room was on the 4th floor. But if you’re in Nepal you should be able to handle a few extra flights of stairs a couple of times a day.
The rooms are comfortable, and everyone who works here is extremely kind. The location is very convenient as well with plenty of shopping and dining options located on the same street. Room service and dining at the hotel restaurant are decent. However, the property is no where as modern as the pictures might indicate. The interior desperately needs to be remodeled, and the plumbing needs to be upgraded. Also, there is no elevator, so beware if you get upgraded to the pent house. We almost moved to a chain hotel after checking in here, but decided to stay on. Overall, this is an average budget hotel option though.
