“4 days stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

I stayed 4 days in Vaishali hotel. Unfortunately on the first day of check in, I had to carry my luggage bags up to the 4th floor! The elevator was under repair on the first day of our arrival. The elevator was fixed and back to normal on the second day onwards. Breakfast is served every morning. A waitor named, 'Hari' served us with smile every morning. Friendly staff. Please do check on the air conditioning in the rooms, as it wasn't cold. I was sweating in my sleep. I hope the hotel management will look in to this matter.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with family

First of all, I would like to thank you for choosing Hotel Vaishali during your extended stay in Thamel.
I am saddened to learn that you had a less than satisfactory service experience with us on more than one occasion. I assure you that this is not representative of the level of service we are known for, of which I truly apologise. Your comments have been communicated to each of the concerned departments, including your compliments to Hari, and we hope to welcome you back for a chance to create a more positive, memorable stay.

This is relatively classy accommodation but of high quality with welcoming and helpful staff. On entering the reception area we were greeted by an extremely helpful doorman who went out of her way to be polite, honest and greeted us by saying namaste "!

A couple of minutes walking distance from bars ,restaurants and pubs and shopping, and maybe 15 minutes dirve front he airport. . Would definitely recommend it for a good value stay in a fascinating town.

Hotel Vaishali is in the middle of the market area. and island of a hotel. Food was very good. Service needs improvement - especially in the rooms. Else the stay was very pleasant. It looked like they are doing the renovation - Probably the reason for just satisfactory room service. I would suggest them to allow the guests to make their tea-coffee. People of Nepal are very friendly and city seems secure.

This is our 8th stay at Vaishali Hotel and during this past two years, we can truly say that it is the best place to stay in Thamel Kathmandu. The rooms are impeccable, reservations were done quickly and well, the management are personable and inviting for a good vacation, the hotel is in a wonderful location, quiet and spotless so you can enjoy a pleasant time while resting and having a good peaceful time in the Thamel. The rooms are very clean and presentable and muffins and juice and tea or coffee with fruit get you on your way in the morning. We weer able to walk to everything. The inn staff are all friendly and very helpful with dinner, shopping & sightseeing suggestions

Room Tip: I will recommend it without hesitation, and my personnel suggestion to stay at Rooms Number 3115.

stayed in Vaishali hotel in Thamel for 5 days, because of my traveler agency's contract with them. otherwise i would get out the first day. the pictures of the rooms are nothing close to what they actually are. old uncleaned with air conditioning not working more than half the time. very rude and inconsiderate stuff especially the front desk employees. would not recommend this hotel at all. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

i am staying in this hotel about 10-20 nights per year, because of the warm and dedicated people and the perfect location.
Hotel Vaishali offers good value for money and if you need more restaurants, you can use those in thamel. All major shopping centers within 10 minutes walk.
The rooms are big and clean. The hotel itself is filled with friendly and helpful staff, the sswimming pool is small but convenient and the rooms are spacious and spotless.

Room Tip: Suite Room 3115 is the best
