I have not even been to the hotel yet. I booked through booking.com. The hotel has already charged my card for the full amount, even though the email I received said that no prepayment was needed. When I called, the staff asked that I call tomorrow. I find it frustrating to not have this problem solved immediately. Be careful when... More

Good location central area, walking distance to Durbar Square. Single beds firm, not much mattress, dining good but somewhat limited on selection. The hotel staff was cordial, polite and helpful. Secure. Economical setting but moderately priced. Terrace and roof top give an excellent view for photos.

It's the second time I go to the Clarion when in Kathmandu for work. It is near my office, and it didn't disappoint me (I saw much more fancy places with basic hygiene issues) . It is simple, family run, clean and with good and safe food, which is quite handy if you are tired and don't want to go... More

I had to be in the area for business for 1 month. I stayed for 1 night at Hotel Goodwill before coming to this hotel. Perfect for the professional or business-person yet still Nepali owned and operated. Attentive staff, cooks, maids, front staff etc. I had the AC room which had heat, and the beds were top notch.

Hotel Clarion is one of the best destinations in Lalitpur. The staffs are very welcoming and if I have to talk about food....it's awesome. Whenever I go to eat outside, the first thing I look is cleanliness- Clarion is best in Lalitpur.
