My wife and I stayed at the Hyatt Hotel in Kathmandu for a total of two weeks (our return home was delayed by four days because of the protest and closing of the airport in Bangkok). We loved every minute of our experience at the Hyatt. This hotel had been highly recommended to us by a friend who goes to Nepal often on business. Her recommendations, in addition to those we had seen on Trip Advisor, were right on the mark. Overall this is one of the finest hotels at which we have ever stayed--in any country.
We stayed on the Club Floor, and the additional cost for this is well worth the money. The free internet is convenient for those who do not bring their laptops with them--although sometimes it is necesary to wait one's turn. The evening happy hour provides a wonderful opportunity to meet other guests--or to maintain one's privacy if that is desired. The hors d'oeuvres served during happy hour are superb (we saw several guests who made these their evening meal!). An excellent breakfast is also served on the Club Floor, but we usually ate in the larger downstairs restaurant which had a larger variety of food.
The hotel is a gorgeous facility, as can be seen from the photos on the hotel's website. It is also located in a beautiful setting of many acres. Kathmandu is a busy, crowded, bustling city and the hotel offers a bit of an oasis after one has grown weary from hearing the cacophany of horns' blowing and dodging the traffic that seems to come from all directions at the same time. The Hyatt offers a good view if the Himalayas as well as a great view of the largest stupa in Kathmandu, which is in easy walking distance.
The grounds on which the hotel is located are huge and beautifully maintained. A large staff of groundskeepers keeps the grass and plants well manicured. The current manager, Mr. Gadi Hassin, has taken special interest in the landscaping since taking charge a couple of years ago. He has introduced many new plants and drilled wells to keep everything well watered. He has also created large vegetable and herb gardens on the grounds which are not only attractive and interesting, but supply fresh vegetables and herbs that are used in the hotel's restaurants.
Speaking of restaurants, those in the Hyatt are very good. The Garden Cafe, on the lower level, is the main restaurant. It offers a varied menu and every item we ordered was superbly prepared. It also offers a buffet with every meal for those who prefer such dining experiences. The buffet features a different theme each evening. There is also the Rox Restaurant at the front of the hotel which is very good. It is a bit more pricey than the Garden Cafe, but certainly not overpriced. It features a varied menu, but its specialty is Italian cuisine.
Even though all the above-mentioned features make the Hyatt a wonderful hotel, the thing that makes it truly outstanding is its staff. To a person, the staff are professional, friendly (no one ever fails to greet you), accommodating, and eager to serve each guest in every way possible. It is obvious that the staff have been carefully selected in the hiring process, have been highly trained, and are professionally supervised. They truly made our stay a joy.
Although there are several other nice hotels in Kathmandu, I doubt that any of these could compare with the Hyatt.
