I spent three nights here in early October. Price is affordable, location is good at the center of Thamel. Staff is friendly and helpful. Hot shower, wifi in rooms included. Nice view from rooftop. I also spent one night here later and i was offered a room with good price without reservation.

Very friendly and Hegel staff. Booked the 2 day 1 night Chitwan safari through them and it was fantastic. Very helpful with all queries and great when we needed to find a 24 hour English speaking doctor.

Bright clean rooms with wifi and hot water - very popular place, always busy, good location in Central thamel.

I stayed here on two separate occasions and am glad I booked for again for the second trip. The location is perfect as it is in the centre of Thamel but up a back street away from the hustle and bustle of the shops but easily within walking distance of everything you need.
The rooms are quite large and although basic they have everything you need, hot water and a comfortable bed and... clean. You have free wifi throughout the hotel and a free airport pick-up which is very important because it means you don't have to endure the frenzy of taxi drivers outside the airport when you arrive as there is someone outside with your name on a clipboard waiting to whisk you away to the hotel.
The biggest plus for the hotel though is the staff. It is a family run business and you experience that feel of family when staying there. Everyone is so friendly and you are never ignored and nothing is too much trouble. Anything you need and all you have to do is ask. People take the time to sit and talk to you and if you need any tours organised then they can do that for you too at the same rates everyone else is charging so there is no need to look elsewhere. They organised a car and driver for me on several occasions and I spent as much time at each location as I needed and one of their staff even doubles as a driver and I can't praise him enough as he was a great driver and extremely courteous and helpful. One of the reasons I booked this hotel in the first place was because people had commented on how friendly and helpful the staff was and believe me you are not disappointed as indeed they are but it is genuine and not just customer service. They will go out of their way to help you. I can't praise them enough!
There is always someone on the front desk or nearby so the hotel has a safe atmosphere too which is good for female solo travellers.
For value for money and location it is excellent value.
Everything you need or want is at the Hotel Great Wall.

Very good choice for my first visit in Nepal.
near Thamel, hidden and not so noisy as main street. hot water all day. no problem with energy. wifi. clean room and bathroom. free pickup/drop at airport. good price.

and most important - staff :)
all staff is very helpful and friendly.
They can arrange anything you want in Nepal. We used Sunrise in Nagarkot, sightseeing in Kathmandu (and around), mountain flight, rafting on Trisuli river, 2 nights stay in Chitwan and 5 nights stay in Pokhara.

Next time we use trekking :)
I had a great time staying at this hotel, and would stay there again.

When I stayed 13 nights in The Great Wall Hotel in June I felt so welcome and they took great care of me, no wish or need was too hard to fulfill. When you reach there you will get very good advice about everything you should know and they even walk you to the places you need to go to for the first times. It was the first time I didnt feel lost when reaching a capital so far from home while travelling on my own. As mentioned in another review they manage the perfect balance between privacy and care. Especially Manager Dipendra is a real gem, he is totally attentive and so helfpul, that you really get the feeling of being home.

The rooms and facilities are very good: Since the hotel is located in a backyard, its rather quiet and everything is well maintained. Rooms are spacious and light, always hot water, wifi and comfortable beds. The rooftop is a good place to sit and have a tea or breakfast, its airy, not too hot and you have a very nice view over the city. I´ve been writing there many hours in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere. Thanks for a great time in Kathmandu!
