“Convenient location”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

This hotel is very conveniently located near city or thamel area. The rooms are neat and clean, the food is okay. Breakfast is excellent. staff is good. We had gone to attend a conference. Some of us stayed in one building and some were booked in the other building. The hotel amenities differ in the two wings. so better stay in old wing where casino is also located.
But the most disturbing fact about this property is that they donot allow guests from one wing to go to visit guests staying in the other wing after 11 or 12 at night. As is generally the case with delegates at any conference, they attend seminars during the conference timings, and go in for shopping and sight seeing in the evenings. after dinner, they like to assemble in one room to share their experiences and also to show the shopping to others. But this strange rule prevented us to enjoy this part of the event. We wonder, if were allotted rooms in the same wing, would they have objected to our assembling in the same room? actually we changed hotel for this very reason.

Room Tip: Better stay in the old wing for sake of convenience and better amenities. And if you are in a big gr...

A. Note there are 2 buildings one which is original (or older, bigger one), and another one which is new building which is across the street. This new building is not great with the facilities. My booking was done in the new one which is not at par with the standard of a 5 star or money I paid for. While booking the room there was no mention of the stay being done in new building. The logic given by the front desk was that I can use all the facilities. C'mon I could have stayed in any other hotel & still used the facilities like restaurant, casino. These facilities are not free. What makes a stay worth is ease of accessibility which was not there

B. Due to new year eve, there were parties in the hotel and surrounding ones and the noise was extremely high. No sound proofing glass in the room. Note there is a late night bar nearby which operates loud music daily irrespective. My room was on 1st floor and facing that, hence proper arrangement should have been done

C. The front desk communication both English & Hindi was very poor

D. The new building has limited restaurant & no swimming pool. And inspite of only 2 restaurant one was given away for birthday party and the other one a roof top was neither good to have food with family on a cold winter night nor had a menu option for vegetarians

E. While checking out no one came for transferring the bags to the lobby and I had to do on my own

My overall feedback for entire stay is 'very poor' and definitely not worth the money.

I stayed in the original part of the hotel. The rooms were clean, the beds comfy and the views of Kathmandu great from the higher floors. Some of the rooms are starting to get a little tired, especially those with carpeting on the floors. The parquetry floors seem to be holding up better than the carpet.

The staff were great - reception, restaurant, housekeeping - all were pleasant to deal with and offered great customer service.

The main problem with the hotel is its location. It is a dangerous walk anywhere from here at the moment as the main road just near the hotel is being ripped up and widened. There are no footpaths to walk on and you must negotiate the rough road and the traffic all together. It's a 20 minute walk to Thamel - made pretty scary at times by holes in the road and traffic. If you are prepared to take a taxi everywhere, the location might be more acceptable. And of course, when / if the roadworks are finished, there may be a huge difference (or not).

Stayed at the hotel twice in the last month. Both times in the new building, following advice from fellow Tripadvisor reviewers. QUite satisfied in general. The rooms were of mixed quality. Last time I had to change rooms because the AC in the first room didn't work properly and it was very noisy. The rooms facing the little street are going to be noisy because drivers in Nepal (as in India) believe that honking their horn every second will lead to enlightenment. So make sure to stay in a room facing the courtyard. The breakfast in the new building is OK. Would have preferred porridge not to have the texture of a soup. and some scrambled eggs would have been nice.
The WiFi is flaky. Need to reconnect all the time. Also, when coming with 3 devices (like most people do these days - a laptop, a smartphone and a tablet), asking for 3 access numbers for the internet was not well received. After some begging and pleading, managed to get 2.
But overall, it is a nice oasis in busy Kathmandu and I will most likely stay there again on my next trip in a couple of weeks.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the street, lots of honking horns and traffic noise outside.

I was here for work and was organizing an event. Their catering charges were so outrageous that we ended up walking to the neighborhood quickie mart and bringing juices and wine back to the hotel. I also needed reliable internet and to make some photocopies, and the hotel charged an arm and a leg for those.

Other than this, the hotel itself was clean and coped relatively well with power outages (they have a generator that kicks in in about 30 seconds -- too long if you're in the elevator!). The views from the rooftop are the best part - make sure you take the stairs up there to take a peek, and bring your camera.

Staff that work at the Radisson are the best. Great customer service everywhere in the whole place. They areso nice.

The first night I was in the main building. The AC doesn't work there and I was in 2 different rooms. They are clean except for the cockroaches. I saw 3 cockroaches during my 3 night stay. Yuck.

I moved to a suite in the other building for the last night, which I highly recommend. It was a beautiful suite, very clean, big bathroom, very comfy bed compared to the other building, and quieter.

The breakfast buffet is great. And service in the restaurant is also superb.

Its about a 10-15 min walk to Thamel on a busy road.
