The first time we stayed in this wonderful bijou, 'family' run hotel was when it had just opened in 2009. It was an oasis of calm in chaotic Thamel. Whilst it is true that all around has grown somewhat noisier, the Ambassador Garden Home hotel still retains an air of tranquility, the 'lounge' area is cool and calming even with the 2 free to use computers - and the staff are brilliant at making everyone feel they are 'at home' ensuring their ease and comfort.
Over the 5 years since we have returned to Kathmandu 6 times and every time we have returned to 'our home' and friends at the Ambassador - we would not stay anywhere else.
Over the 5 years the hotel has been improved and upgraded in many caring and helpful ways by its owner Prakash. This small, characterful hotel is clean, well run and the service by the staff is excellent. It serves the best breakfast in Kathmandu and the quality of the food, all made fresh to order, is way above the price tag. We have eaten in the garden in all weathers, when it is cold we put on our hooded fleeces and the shelter of the blinds and the heaters keep the chill at bay.
Unfortunately this time I arrived in Kathmandu not well and spent many days in and out of bed ..the concern and care of the staff could not have been better ...
I would recommend this hotel to all , no matter what their age or group - I have seen happy toddlers here with their parents as well as very 'seasoned' travellers.
My only complaint is that now it is so popular that sometimes it is hard to get in ...
my tip is don't take it for granted you will be able to have a room when you want -
make sure - book it ahead.
