“Green oasis in the middle of Thamel”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The streets of Thamel can be exceptionally annoying for travelers who spend their first couple of days in Kathmandu. Therefore can you go back to Karma and relax on their beautiful terraces away from honking taxis and deadly motorbikes. The rooms are bright and neat I got good value for my money. They offer a big variety of services from room service breakfast on a lazy day over free pickup service from the airport to organized tours through their partner from Funny Treks & Expedition. I booked some short trips to Pokhara, Lumbini and Chitwan and everything worked out very well. Another thing that i really apprecciated was the free storage service i left a lot of baggage there during my trekking trips.
Dear Karma-Team thank you very much for the warm welcome and the friendly hospitality!

Karma Travellers Home is a nice and quiet place in the busy Thamel area in Kathmandu. It is centrally located and the staff is really helpful and friendly. The provided airport pick-up service was good and at any time you could arrange a taxi at the hotel. It was great to have breakfast at the small terrace in the sun :-) Next time in Nepal we will surely go back again to Karma!

I stayed at this property this may and was really struck by the friendliness and honesty of the staff here. They were always pleasant to talk to and ready to help me out every time. I stayed here on three separate occasions and felt at home, at all times. They are located right in the center of Thamel, surrounded with all the good places to eat and shop.Rooms are old but clean and quite affordable. In addition they provide 24 hour Wifi, internet room with printer if you need to print any emergency documents or tickets (like i did) and last but not the least, they also arrange for your travels (from treks to bungee) which turned out for me, absolutely hassle free. In the end I would thank Buddhi, Keshav, Raj and Sunil for hosting me and making my Nepal trip awesome.

Room Tip: I found the rooms on the 2nd floor much quieter and with a common balcony to have a beer or two and...

We stayed on 3 occasions during our recent trip to Nepal. Great budget place to stay when in Kathmandu with friendly helpful staff, clean rooms, 24 hr WIFI and always a hot shower. Our luggage was stored free of charge when we were off. Location is great. Lower rooms on the street side can be a little noisy, but you're in Thamel so this was no surprise. Bathrooms are a little old but clean.
During a power cut, light in the room and WIFI are still working thanks to the solar power system. Overall: a great place to stay!

Cheap hotel with very very good facilities. It was really good hotel, a very nice staff, they are very kind to, they help us in so many things to make it easier to traveling in Kathmandu. Just say what you need, they will done it for you. They provide you with a taxi and picked up from the airport free. Also there is wi-fi in every floor and 1 computer in lobby, which will help you to find information to traveling in Nepal or to contact friends/family in your country. In front of the hotel you have the possibility to get money from a ATM. This hotel is situaded in the heart of the city. I will always choose this hotel, if I ever come back again to Kathmandu.
