Reviewed February 12, 2012

This place is a little gem!!! We heard about it searching last minute before we travelled to thamel. The staff were so helpful in all aspects and the accomodation was so cheap and chearful. Have already recommended to fellow travellers and will continue to do. They also sorted out our everest base camp trek for a very reasonable price which was awesome experience.... Thanks to Tika and and all his staff

Cheap, easy going accommodation with friendly staff. Stayed at the Red Planet GH for about a week splitting the days either side of our trip to Everest Base Camp. Its not the Ritz but good for the price and we all found the staff helpful especially when it came to organizing our trip to EBC, which they sorted for a good price (flights, transfers and guide). Tika, who runs the show was also very helpful and professional, so maybe throw him an email to inquire about accommodation or treks.

Room Tip: Rooms are better on second and third floor

we found the red planet guest house to be a very nice and friendly place to stay with the staff and guests both very friendly. we got rooms very cheap $6 a night. they have a split business the other doing trips to the mountains, and we wanted to do everest base camp. we got their price and then one from town and when we brought it back they matched it. the guy tika who organises tours was very helpful and even rang my girlfriend (via our guides mobile) to tell her that her dad had emailed asking if all was well and he wanted to know what to write in response as we'd be away for 12 days.

our guide Lok had a reasonable amount of english couldve been a little better but it didnt really matter most of the time we understood each other. the teahouses we were taken to were all excellent. the food varied here and there but your going to get that up a moutain where food stocks are in short supply.

overall very happy with red planet we stayed there a few days after our trip too and would highly reccommend them to anyone. if you phone or email ahead they'll even pick you up from the airport!

enjoy

My friend and I had our wonderful holiday in Nepal. At first we thank to Red Planet Guest House who responded our email very well and fast. As the price which they offered we thought that it would be very basic guest house. But once we were there we were really surprised with their services. In Katmandu there was power cup problem when we were there, but this place had back up so that we had lights all the time. The reception guy told us every day when to have a shower because he knew when the power comes back. This little place has roof top sitting area which is good to have a look views around. It also offered free wi-fi in the room, lobby and balcony which we did not expected with its price.
We must thank to the tour desk at the hotel that helped to plan our trekking trips. Mr. Tika Regmi of Adventure Mountain Explore Treks helped us to find out the best destination. We had Tamang Heritage Trail trek which was superb. At the end we realized that why Tika offered us such a new trek. It was very special and we had directly interacted with locals. We had local food and sitting around by the fire place which was a part of oven. It was very much impressive and Thanks million to you Tika for your honest information and arrangement. Guide was great and supported us. If anyone planning for trekking trip in Nepal use red planet Guest house to stay and use Tika and his company for arrangement.

The room price was pretty good with central location in Thamel. It's not right on the main street, but the area is still fairly noisy at night from bars in the area. The hot water is just from a sun-warmed tank on the roof, so unless you have excellent timing you'll only have cold showers. That's the biggest drawback.

Clean rooms, good location, but very hard uncomfortable beds. Hot water patchy, and staff get annoyed with you if you don't organize tours/ trekking with them. Average price for thamel, just a pity the staff are so money driven.

The Guest house is in my opinion located at a great spot. The staff is very friendly, helpful and the service is very good, I can say at this point that I am coming again. After spending 3 times at this place, I know what I am talking about.

Especially the Guest Relation, is very helpful if you have any kinds of problems, just ask after Husain and he will do everything he can to help you.
He set us up, with a perfect room with a good view from either the windows or the great balcony.
This time I am going to in my business purpose. Lot of time I am going to India and Nepal also. When I am going to India I am stay in Varanasi and Delhi, when I am going to Nepal stay Kathmandu in this Place
