“Basic but clean and welcoming”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This hotel is marked as 3 stars - in my European standers we are talking about a 2 stars hotel. I think in Nepal you cant expect too much so i am going to describe the hotel without compering it to the hotel levels in Nepal because i just dont know. its the only hotel that i stayed at in Kathmandu.
Rooms: basic but clean. Old furniture but maintained well. comfortable bed. i slept well and i have a bad back.The bed was clean but i would bring my own sheets. There was almost always hot water, the shower was ok but the toilet gets wet every time you shower. Some rooms have air conditioning, in my room it wasnt working. No elevator so if you are on the 5th floor you have some climbing. There are rooms with view to the city and rooms that have a window to an inner hotel grey wall that is like an air way, those rooms are a bit dark. On the fifth floor there is great view and air. I would ask for those rooms. The service was nice, welcoming and helpful. The food outside i think is better. The location in the Thamel is great, there are very nice restaurants and bars right outside of the hotel. Also i like that they lock the hotel at night for security reasons. They also have a small safe for money and passports by the lobby. Wifi on ground floor and on 2nd and 4th floor i think. So in conclusion, if this hotel is your budget its a great choice, if you have a larger budget i would go to a 5 stars hotel which would probably be like a European 4 stars.

Room Tip: ask for rooms with a view, working air condition, ask for a fan, i saw they put in new beds so you c...

I'm from Mexico city, in a back pack trip in Nepal. I spent 5 days in Hotel Tenki and I realy enjoyed my stay. The staff is very kind, always have a smile and try to help you if you need something. Really a good location in the center of Thamel.
Shiva is the owner, a great guy who likes to talk and share always a different point of view about anything.
I recomend you write him if you need something in Thamel shivaharius@gmail.com

We came to the hotel with a big group of volunteers from Amics del Nepal. From the beginning the staff of the hotel (and the owner Shiwa) were very friendly and we felt very comfortable. The rooms are very clean according to the standards of Kathmandu and very good Dhalbat in the restaurant! We will be back for sure!!!
Über alles sehr gut!
Gràcies x tot

at a first look it seems you have come to a dingy place, but the hotel is pretty good, rooms are spacious, clean, staffs are good. i cant say anything about the food, didn't try anything there, but the hotel is surrounded with shops, restaurants, you have ample of options to buy. and the restaurants close to the hotel are very good.

Room Tip: Go for Twin rooms

Located in the heart of Thamel, this hotel provides very good, clean rooms. The service is good. The only problem is with the food. Compared to the quality, it's rather over priced. Other then that, I would always recommend this hotel to all travellers visiting Nepal.

Room Tip: While ordering for food, ask them to use very little salt. The food here is very very salty. Special...

We arrived at the hotel following an Island Peak climbing trip, and our normal hotel had been overbooked, so we ended up booked in there.

After an eternity, we finally got our room keys to what turned out to be one of he worst rooms I've stayed in in Asia. The sheets of the bed had not been changed ( body imprint and pubic hairs on the sheets). The bathroom had live cables dangling from the ceiling and the mattress was so old and thin that we ended up sleeping on the camping exped mats in sleeping bags instead of the bed. The seevice was indifferent at best, and the breakfast so basic that it was just not worth eating there when the choice of food outlets in the Thamel is so great.

The only good thing about the hotel is the location, in the hub of the Thamel, but situated on the fringe to avoid the worst of the noise.
