Thorong Peak Guest House
Ranked #57 of 470 Kathmandu B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

A very friendly and accommodating guesthouse. On initial arrival there was no hot water in my room, but soon rectified until the morning. The room well sized, the bed comfortable and in a good location (despite being directly in the centre of Thamel) is on a quite cul de sac. Sadly the biggest let down is the food, but in fairness, most of the food in Thamel I avoided and ate in the back street, local cafés - a MUST for getting into the culinary culture.

We previously stayed in an expensive hotel that provided us a small room and an even tinier bathroom, so imagine our joy when we got a huge bedroom and an equally spacious bathroom in Thorong Peak GH, and at a lower rate! The room was clean and full of light due to the big windows, and since the bathroom was renovated, it had a 5-star feel to it with its copper taps and black tiles. The staff too is friendly, and always helpful in answering our queries. Moreover, since the hotel is located in a small street off the main road, it is quiet and pretty private. This is a must for us when staying in Thamel as it's very busy and noisy. We wouldn't mind staying here again if we visited Kathmandu in the future.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor and is next to the terrace. It's the only room with such a huge ba...

We stayed here again for our 1 night stopover in Thamel. Sure, other (newer & fancy) hotels did tempt us but we decided to go with the tried and true. Suffice to say it was, once again, a great stay without issues. Whilr we were "fleeced" by Kathmandu airport taxi (due to our own fault though), Thorong Peak arranged an honest & trustworthy taxi driver. The deluxe room was comfortable and furnished with traditional bathroom fittings which we really liked. Previously we stayed in a Suite room which was more spacious but Deluxe was equally good. Thorong Peak Guesthouse is a peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of Thamel streets. We won't be surprised if this isn't our final stay here.

It is a quiet place in the center of Kathmandu. It's not possible you say? It is, because it is just a little street away from the main business street of Kathmandu. You're nearby to everything, yet you don't have to worry about getting your head messed up, while sitting on the terrace and enjoing your meal. WiFi is working properly, the rooms are cosy for Nepal. Hot showers works, rooms have their own WC's etc.

Room Tip: Higher floors have easy access to rooftop terrace.

Neat and tidy rooms, great shower and free wireless Internet. If you don't want anything more than that, this is the place for you, right in the heart of the touristy Thamel. Only downside it has is its not-so luxurious roof terrace.

So, I wouldn't say the pictures are exactly what you get, but it is a good location and fair price. It's clean and tidy. It is super loud with paper thin walls and if one is desiring sleep, this may not be the best route, but if you want location within walking distance of restaurants, then why not? Great hot water shower.

Dear Guest,
We have three different categories of rooms namely the Suite, Superior Deluxe and the Deluxe room. All three rooms have different deco, the room size and bathroom style are also different. We have put up the pictures in our website to avoid confusion. Any suggestion to improve our photo gallery will be highly appreciated.

I spent two weeks in July 2013 there and am very happy with my expierence. No problems with running water; and when the electricity would shut down (everyday problem in Kathmandu), they would always restore it very quickly so I never had problems with it too. Overall impression: a quiet, cozy and clean place with extremely friendly and nice stuff, that felt like home :)
