I have reviewed this hotel before and want to confirm, after another stay last week, that it is still very good. Note to Trip Advisor, the hotel is now named simply "Hotel Annapurna". This trip, we were in Kathmandu for one week. We booked a business package which included wi-fi, breakfast and transfers to and from the airport. It is a great comfort to be collected in a luxury Annapurna mini bus. Booking was done directly with the hotel and cost €150 per night for two. This might seem expensive but the service and standards are excellent in a hotel in an ideal location. We used transport arranged through the doorman which was only a few rupees more than the regular taxis outside but in far more comfortable cars with friendly English speaking drivers. The hotel is within walking distance of all the main places around Thamel and just across the road from the Yak & Yeti. The latter hotel has superb gardens but the hotel itself is huge and soul less. The Annapurna is a hub of local activities and there were three weddings celebrated in a huge marquee whilst we were there. ALL HOTELS IN THE WORLD PLEASE NOTE: The guests arrived around 5.30pm to 6 pm and all noise from the functions finished by 10.pm to 10.30 pm. thereby causing no disturbances to hotel guests! In Ireland, you will simply lose a night's sleep when there is a wedding. Hotel Annapurna is situated near good shops and there is a very good pub/cafe/rooftop restaurant (Nando's? I think) just along the street on the right when leaving the hotel. It has a cake shop on the entrance level and is recommended!

- Located in Durbar Marg, Kathmandu's premier street, 5-star Hotel Annapurna has a long history of excellence in the hospitality industry.

The Hotel has a total of 151 recently renovated Deluxe and Heritage guestrooms, including 5 suites, equipped with modern amenities such as the latest flat screen TV, bedside lighting & climate control unit, tea & coffee making facilities, mini bar and electronic safe. The atmosphere within the 5-acre property is warm and relaxed, the ambiance embracing the unique and friendly essence of Nepali culture and traditions. The Hotel is an architectural marvel, cleverly combining the local pagoda-style with contemporary flair. The Hotel is also famous for its popular eating outlets. The Coffee Shop is the all day, every day place for favourite eats and drinks and surprising new delights. The capital's most exotic Chinese restaurant, the Arniko Room, has established itself as one of the culinary wonders of modern Nepal. If the aristocratic flavour of fabled Mughal kitchens is more your to your taste, then Ghar-e-Kabab is the place to dine either alone or, better still, with your family and friends, AND when the sun goes down - or even a lot earlier - the Juneli Bar, stocked with the choicest drinks from around the world, is the perfect place to hit! In keeping with modern times, the Hotel is entirely Wi-Fi enabled. With extensive banquet and conferencing facilities, beautifully landscaped garden, one of the largest hotel swimming pools, well-equipped gym, business center and the most prestigious shopping arcade, our property is also within easy reach of religious, historical, cultural, architectural and shopping destinations, as well as Government offices, diplomatic missions and airline offices. At Annapurna, it is our promise you will feel truly blessed by the Goddess of Abundance. Hotel Annapurna,'Truly a Heritage of Hospitality' ... more less
