In the centre of Thamel, but set back with its own garden, it is a quiet haven, from the busy outside streets. The rooms are clean and with constant hot water, a real treat after beginning in the mountains. The staff are very friendly and helpfully. I look forward to my return visit.

Upon first arriving, loved the location of the hotel. After that, it all went downhill. When we got to our room they asked us if we wanted a larger room at the same cost. Great....or so we thought. It turns out that the room had a number of problems. First was that the AC (or heater, depending upon the time... More

We stayed here three different times during our stay in Nepal. Great location, just steps away from the main streets of Thamel. Nice garden in front of hotel. The shower in our first room was not divided from the toilet so everything got wet. During our second and third stay, we asked for a room with a tub and shower,... More

The Samsara Hotel is located in a side street off Thamel so that you have the advantage of being in Thamel but away from the noise and crowds. The hotel does have a lovely garden, but unfortunately the pollution is so high in Kathmandu that once you're off Thamel, you really don't feel like staying outside. My husband and I... More

While not a 4 star hotel by American standards, our two stays at the Samsara Resort were very pleasant. The atmosphere is that of a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Thamel (literally just a few steps away). It's amazing how the chaos of Thamel falls away as you walk into the Samsara property. That alone is worth... More

The hotel has a very good location.. in the heart of Kathmandu.. but the place itself is not that great. The rooms had an uncomfortable air to them. Basic toiletries were missing, sheets were dirty and the plug points didn't work well. The management staff always came up with the most expensive options for sightseeing and cabs.. avoid them. Just... More

Overall a very nice place. There's not really any view from the rooms so I would suggest staying on the lower floors to save the hike up the stairs. If you stay in a room ending in 5 (eg. 205)then your view will be hundreds of noisy pigeons and you are likely to be kept awake by the neighboring hotels... More

The Samsara manages to over a peaceful environment in spite of being in the heart of the tourist area of Kathmandhu. The service at the Reception desk was excellent. The room I was given however was a little grubby. There were small stains both on the bedcover and carpet, and the bathroom needed renovating - unfortunately the WC would not... More

We had this hotel recommended at our arrival to the Kathmandu airport. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. They helped us organizing our trekking trip thanks to their association with a good trekking company. The rooms are clean and offer a nice view of the city (4th floor). There is a rooftop terrace perfect to take some pictures of... More

I had a pleasant stay at Samsara Resort mainly due to clean rooms, hot water and friendly staff. Have a chat with super friendly "oncle" Puru; probably will meet him at the breakfast time.
