Reviewed July 10, 2012

I was arranged to this hotel for a night in Kathmandu. There's free wifi in the lobby, and you got to pay if you want to have it in your room. Though I paid for it, my corner level 4 room seemed to have very weak wifi reception, it was lagging and disconnected a few times.

My room has a superb view of Kathmandu (colorful buildings) and a mountain! It's only level 4, so I wasn't expecting that. Room is clean, brightly lit, there's adequate furniture and space in the room.

The dinner served in the restaurant was good. My company arranged for it. It was like some indian buffet, but instead of walking to the line to get the food, the staff took the dish to you and if you want it, he will scoop for you onto your plate. Breakfast, however was a little disappointed. I wish they will have more western choices.

Also would like to highlight to one of the staff who took time to accompany the Silkair cabin crews in the night to the town. Didnt manage to take down his name, but thanks for the efforts because your presence was greatly appreciated. We felt safe in your presence despite in a foreign land.

Tips: There's a money-changer right outside the hotel on the left, but be careful and make sure you count your money properly before you leave. However, there's no decent convenience store or provision shop outside. Also, you cant expect clean water from the tap in Kathmandu (anywhere!).

Its not as good as seen or as highlighted in the websites. Even though very closeby to the Airport, the location is bit dissapointing & the neighbourhood of the Hotel is very poorly maintained. The rooms are O.K, but the tap water for mouth wash & shower was very offensive & very unhygeinic. The breakfast was average but the food availability in their restaurant was unexpectedly good!. so its best for urgent transit stay & for those keen on visiting lord pashupathinath temple, which is in a walking distance.

Room Tip: travellers better chose bigger triple rooms/ family rooms for more space & good interiors.

The Hotel is situated just opposite to the Airport. The food is nice. Room service is very good. The rooms are very clean and looks trendy.I have stayed in this hotel for about 4 times . Will repeat. All the staffs are very friendly and generous.Chicken Momo's here are very good. You can access the internet in the Lobby for free. It will be chargeble if you wanna use it in your room.

Room Tip: Choose for Corner Rooms

When I think of an airport hotel, impersonal comes to mind. But not in Kathmandu.
I was transiting to and from Bhutan and stayed here both times. Not only was it a minute from the airport it was also close to some important places worth visiting: Pashupatinaath temple (3 mins in a taxi), and Patan (10-15 mins by taxi), which is great for site seeing and shopping.

The menu has much to chose from and if there is nothing that you find you can always ask and they will do their best to accommodate your palate.

I found all the staff friendly, approachable and front of house, especially, made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I need. I had a couple of hurdles to cross and they were all solved for me by them. Not only did they book taxis for me and advise me on places to visit, I even got an airport escort.

I will definitely stay there again.

After a harrowing experience at another Kathmandu airport-area hotel (warning: stay away from the Palagya Hotel!!) we felt we arrived at a palace upon entering the Airport Hotel.

We wanted to stay at a hotel close to the airport since we were leaving Nepal on May 28th, the day after the constitutional deadline. If there was to be a strike we wanted to ensure we could get to the airport for an early morning Buddha Air flight to see Mt. Everest and a mid-afternoon flight to India.

Situated a 5min walk to the airport, this hotel offered us a basic room with clean bedding (shame on you, Palagya Hotel!), A/C and standard bathroom and free wi-fi in the lobby.

I have to commend the hotel staff for being so friendly and efficient. The front-desk staff was nothing but helpful, the manager helped arrange a ride to the airport terminal (my travelling companion was 6 months pregnant and its a long walk with heavy backpacks) and our waiter in the breakfast room was terrific.

The food at breakfast might have been a little suspect (balls of butter floating in a big bowl of dirty water) but the toast with honey was perfect.

All in all we had a short stay but appreciated our time at the Airport Hotel.

The hotel is just withing walking distance from the airport. You can see it as soon as you exit the airport. The receptionists are gracious. They showed me the first room, but it stinks, then they changed me to another room which is much better. It is clean but the blind at the shower/restroom does not close. I hope that no one is watching me when I was taking my shower!!! In any case, it is convenient location, especially when there is a strike in the city and no one can go from the airport into the city.
