Stayed here for 2 nights before going trekking and 1 night upon my return. It's hard to judge the hotel fairly because they are facing constant power cuts and gas shortages as is everyone in Nepal. As a result it was often cold in the rooms and the hot water was on and off. Not much they could do about... More

I have spent half my life in Asia and feel I am a fair critic based on what should be expected and at what price. I chose this hotel because of many glowing reviews on trip advisor. Yes if the cost was $US5 per night I would suggest the reviews and value for money was fair. Friendly and Homely is... More

Hi 🙌. I totally recommend this hotel👌. Lovely warm and friendly people. Willing to go the extra length to help out. Great service. Pick ups and drop offs from airport, took a lot of stress off us. Great price, great food, free wifi and hot showers!! They even put our bag in a secure locked room, while we went away... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel In the middle of very dusty Kathmandu. It had everything we needed including a rooftop patio with flowers and a place to stretch and dry our socks. The staff was very helpful and allowed to use a room to clean up on our last day when we were waiting for a 10PM flight.... More

The Hotel Blue Horizon was a fantastic home base for our travels in Nepal. The staff are helpful and welcoming. The food is fantastic. (I really miss the Hotel Blue Horizon breakfast now that I'm home). The garden courtyard, where we took most of our meals, is really a lovely retreat from the chaos of the rest of the Thamel...

My son and I stayed here at the start and end of our trek, the staff were always really helpful, we were able to leave a bag in storage while on our trek, no charge. They organised a map when I needed directions to different places. The restaurant was lovely and the momo's are the best, well worth the wait!!!... More

Location of the hotel is good, rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly. However I still wouldn't recommend this hotel to others - the hot water was patchy and the wifi connection was very unreliable. Although yes, this is Nepal, we have stayed at plenty of other similar priced places that got both of these crucial things right!

My husband and I used this hotel as our base while in Nepal. The first few nights we stayed in a higher priced room and it was very nice - hot water, TV etc....Exactly what we expected for the price we paid! The next stay was unexpected and last minute, so the only room available was not desirable at all,... More

Stayed at the Hotel from 09 Sep till 12 Sept. Was given the same room D2. The room is well furnished, however the entire hotel needs some doing up , like painting, refurbishing the soft furniture and the bathroom done up.The power situation in Kathmandu is grim, all the areas are facing approx 4 hrs powercut everyday, on a rotation...
