Super friendly personnel, always ready to give you the best deal, right in the heart of Thamel, a quiet oasis in the hustle and bustle of a stressful city, good internet, hot water, a place that leaves no wishes open. I stayed 2 weeks at this most hospitable place, and would have stayed longer. Soo much value for soo little money. Hope to be back soon.

Room Tip: Simply ask for a quiet room.

Offered free airport pickup. Later I arrive in hotel room and person who picked me up at the airport reminds me that I need to tip him. I give him 500nrs and he reminds me that it is only $5USD. I reply with I know exactlly how much I gave you. So much for "Free Airport Pickup".

Hotel owner expresses disappointment that I don't want to use his services as a travel agent. I had already paid for my domestic flight to Lukla so I wasn't interested in the services of a travel agent. Just felt uncomfortable to sense the owners disappointment.

Kitchen reminded me of a "metal fabrication workshop" and not a hotel kitchen.

Otherwise the staff were very helpful and very friendly. They went out of their way to satisfy customers. Place attracts a good crowd of tourists and is generally very friendly place to socialise.

Nice quiet location away from the main noisy streets of Thamel.

I have stayed in Kathmandu four times, and would warn any traveller NOT to stay here. The rooms were very dirty, with used sheets! To top it off, the owners tried to overcharge us $10USD for the advertised 'free' transfer from the airport.
Stay on the street rather than go to this place!

I stayed there for 3 nights and the good part was: free airport pick-up, free wifi, very friendly staff, good position in Thamel and very good price offer got by internet reservation.

The bad part was the hotel and room state: it will definitly need some restoration.

I must say that this hotel was my first contact to Asia and Nepal. Afterwards I got more used with accomodation conditions in Asia, but all other hotels I stayed afterwards in Nepal were in better condition that this one.

We spent several days in Kathmandu in this hostel and we liked it a lot...the staff is great and helpful, and they recommend the travel agency ANA which has great deals for the trekking on Himalayas and other activities. The location is perfect, in the middle of Thamel and all the happenings, and yet it is very quiet and peaceful. Free internet and wifi in the lower floor rooms. It is good value for the money. If we ever go back, definitely we'll stay at the same place....and we recommend it to everyone.

let's start with the good:
1. free pickup from the airport.
2. free wifi and internet.

and now for the reason I gave this hotel 1 star:
we asked them to order us a bus ticket to pokhara for the next morning.
they said no problem, gave us a higher rate and in the evening they told us it's not possible because of a strike of all the buses.
we took back the money and went to another agency and found out it was a lie.
they just wanted us to stay more nights.

very not nice!

Dear Values Guest


Thank you very much for you time taken to write your experience about the hotel silver home. We are really sorry to hear that bad experience you have had here. We have changed everything at the hotel even the management also. Not only the price for the buses but for everything that we provide is reasonable now. I know it was happened before 4 years but if you ever come to Nepal again just give us a chance to serve you then you will know about our new management and the honesty of the staff as well.
Thanking you again and hoping to see you in our hotel soon.



Warm Regards
Hotel Silver Home
