“Good hotel with lots of amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

The hotel has lots of diverse restaurants and good amenities for visitors to feel comfortable. It id nice that you can walk down the street to stores if needed or enjoy a late night casino for entertainment.

The health club/gym is decent, but not the best or latest equipment. Decent Internet connection, but a little higher than normal price.

The one disappointment is how warm the rooms are in February. There is no air conditioning at this time of year and the rooms can get stuffy and as warm as 25 degrees Celsius if you leave the lights on.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Soaltee Crowne Plaza kathmandu!

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. We appreciate you taking the time to make us aware of your experience during your recent stay. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our breakfast and amenities offered. We have noted your feedback on the location of the hotel and agree that it is a little away from the city. On the contrary there is easy access to Swoyambhunath and the main city via taxis and the location does offer the hotel a calm and serene atmosphere.

The team at Soaltee Crowne Plaza Kathmandu looks forward to providing you with a much better experience on your next visit.

Warm Regards,

Nalin Mandiratta

When I travel in Nepal on my own I prefer to stay in one of the small guest houses, but when I travel with a group of tourists, as a Tour Leader I have to make sure that everything runs smoothly, so I stay at the Soaltee and I always feel at home. The staff are always genuinely friendly and we all feel very welcome.
The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the food great. The garden is also wonderful; it's like an oasis in central Kathmandu, just a 20-minute walk from Durbar Square!

Loved our two-night stay here. Good food, some nice shops on the property without overly-aggressive sales people. Comfortable, clean and quiet room. Only unhappy surprise was that smoking is still allowed indoors in places in the hotel - not pleasant, but then again, not much worse than the air in the rest of Kathmandu. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Close to city and Durbar Square, Patan City, stupas, etc. Loved all the flowers in bowls around the property.

Having just trekked to Everest Base camp, an incredible experience but mentally and physically demanding, we felt we deserved a little comfort. We don't usually go for big chain hotels, but knew from how we felt after climbing Kilimanjaro that the only way to guarantee a decent bed and much needed supply of hot water is to 'suck it up' and go for this type of hotel. We chose the Crowne Plaza over The Hyatt on price and the fact that they were prepared to put our daughter in the room with us, which again kept costs down.
The grounds are beautiful and with a Hindu wedding going on whilst we were there, we saw how creatively the space can be used.
Room was comfortable and there was always hot water and a flushing loo! Such a treat after trekking.We had breakfast twice and also sampled 2 of the restaurants. The food was excellent. Yes it is expensive compared to eating in Thamel but not extortionate even comparing to the South African rand.
Treatments in the beauty salon were on special offer and certainly incredibly reasonable. So we could enjoy some welcome pampering after our exertions.
Staff were friendly and helpful. I think it was the first time they had been asked to track down Chabad in Kathmandu as we wanted to attend a Friday evening Sabbath service. They also helped us with our online check in and double checked our flight times which had changed since we had booked.

Nested well within the city, it manages to be away from the hustle bustle (3Km) , spread over a large green well landscaped ground with the surrounding mountains offering a very peaceful view. The rooms are both old and new - the hotel goes back many years. Ask for the rooms with Verandahs (Balcony). Service / Breakfast / Amenities etc are good but follow a leisurely pace. 'China Garden' does serve some very delectable and authentic Chinese cusine. The are other choices - Italian, Indian, Tibetan etc which are also easily available. The Casino is located at the back of the hotel mainly for tourists - lively on weekend nights. With a large grand conference hall, well spread open grounds, a service oriented staff - the hotel is very friendly for large groups and events. Some of the best launch events and high end weddings are held here regularly

Room Tip: Ask for gate view or mountain view rooms

Stayed in this wonderful friendly hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is a retreat from the bustling city. We enjoyed all aspects including the rooms, food services, location and a real plus was the wonderfully friendly service from everyone we encountered. Yes Wifi is expensive, but acceptable. We enjoyed the breakfasts and dining in the hotel and the restaurant 'attached' to the hotel as well. Just outside the hotel property there is friendly fair tourist shopping available as well. Well worth your consideration when staying in Kathmandu.
