“Oasis in the middle of Thamel”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I stayed at AGH for two nights as i wanted to be in Thamel for new year celebrations. On check-in, we were guided to our room which had all modern amenities. This is a boutique hotel and we fell in love with how they have decorated the room.

The staff is very friendly. The kitchen staff cooks excellent meals and i can say that its the best food i had in Nepal throughout my stay. The owner himself takes interest in speaking to the guests to get their feedback.

Being right in the middle of Thamel, this hotel is like an oasis. Pubs, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, etc. are all walking distance away from the hotel. Taxis are readily available outside the hotel and they have their own travel company to arrange treks, flights, etc.

10/10 to this hotel for making the last part of our Nepal trip the most memorable part.

I stayed here with my family of 5 for 2 nights on arriving and 1 night on leaving Kathmandu. It was clean, comfortable and had friendly staff plus good location. It was also quite although there is a club next door and the breakfast is very good. Free wifi and 2 PC for guests to use on the lounge. Also mini bar had good stock of some drinks and a couple of Nepali beers which was complimentary! I and my kids loved it so much that I booked it again on our way back from Pokhara to Kathmandu. Oh and electricity is on all the time as they have a generator that kicks in every time there is a power cut. All in all, a brilliant place to stay in Kathmandu.

Friendly staff. Location. Clean.

Besides the good location smack in center of Thamel surrounded by top notch cafés & restaurant, what sets this hotel apart is the friendliness & hospitable staff particularly a Mr. Rajan. I checked in late on Christmas due to my excursion from airport to Bodhnat prior to going hotel, Rajan was practically on the doorstep greeting me with my name, offered drinks & upgraded my room without me asking. He said it's Christmas. That was a wonderful start to my stay. The hotel was beautifully decorated with nice aroma from scented oils placed strategically. The ethnically decorated room was beautiful, clean & large. Breakfast was sufficient & served with individually pressed coffee, yeah not the typical large container/pots in most hotels! Although it was only a night, it was a most memorable stay I had in my 20 plus years of traveling around the world. Well done! Keep up the good hospitality. And thank you.

This hotel is located in the heart of Thamel, the tourist district of Kathmandu. The staff is friendly and cordial. Rooms are well furnished and gives a nice feel of Nepali culture. However, the place seems to be overpriced to me (may be because I booked on booking.com which showed me price in INR while booking but the voucher issued was in USD which meant I ended up paying 15% higher at the time of payment to the hotel. The hotel desk was also quite inflexible in this).

I didn't try their food but breakfast (as Thamel has plenty of great restaurants), which was quite average.

I`m sure that this hotel is one of the best in Katmandu. In the evening, staff brought to us termofor (bottle with hot water) to warm the bed before going to sleep. :) Nepal has the power cuts but the hotel has a generator so we did not experience any discomfort. The dining area is outside so it can be cold in the morning during the breakfast. Do not expect any nice view through the window. The staff is friendly.

A mediocre hotel that would probably deserve 3 stars but the price was ridicilously high. If the price was like 40% of what it is now it would be reasonable. You can find as good places at 25-30% of the price. I don't know how this place got so high reviews. Might have been before the prices got tripled or they are fake.

Another minor incident was that we had early morning and we were promised breakfast (included in price) to take out at 6:30am. We tried to ask for the breakfast but it wasn't ready, eventhough it was promised. Would've taken 15min to prepare.. One would assume when you pay 67$ for one night atleast a simple breakfast could be managed..

Do yourselves a favor and look for another place to stay!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review, i am surprised to see your review , yes our breakfast start at 7 am to till 11.30 am . For packed breakfast ( cheese sandwich , boiled eggs , can juices & fruits ) it will also take around 10 to 15 minutes, but for instant breakfast it will not take time, in your case our staffs got mis- understanding. that is why they asked you for 15 minutes.

You were saying the price you have paid usd 67 including taxes & breakfast for deluxe double , before tax it will be usd 51.00 . which includes:

Ambassador breakfast
Tea/coffee in room
2 bottles water in rooms everyday.
Daily news paper in rooms
Free wifi facility with computers in lobby & wifi in rooms
AC room (both heating & cooling )with attached bathroom & mini bar
24 hours ac which you hardly get in Nepal due to heavy power cut from Government

At Check in Time:
seasonal Fruits
Mini Bar complementary item as follows:
2 can beers
2 can juices

we always concern about our guests satisfaction, in your case we could not satisfy you so , i personally felt sorry for this, i do hope we will have chance to serve you in future.

Please let me know when you had stayed with us for our record.

Thank you ,

warm Regards,

Prakash
