While travelling from Kathmandu to Tibet and Bhutan recently, I stayed at the Utse Hotel in Thamel.
The owners, Diki and Dichen, are Tibetan and make their hotel a home away from home for travellers of all ages. They became family and helped me with every little details, where to go, anything I needed. They are darlings!
Rooms, restaurant, and the very comfy lounge and meeting place is done in Tibetan decor. Rooms offer basic comforts at a great price and are cleaned daily by a happy and diligent crew. All the staff at the Utse will drop everything to help you, carry your bags, get you what you need. This hotel is a welcome sweet respite from the busyness of Thamel. Trekking groups and people travelling alone ( I am a single female travelling alone) stay here so you will always meet people. It is a hub for people coming and going on tours or on Everest and Annapurna treks. Good energy! Free WiFi, cheap phone calls from hotel desk and laptop for use in the lounge. Food is excellent, clean and inexpensive. The Utse owners had one of the original cafes in Kathmandu in the 70's so they know how to serve food that is wholesome and healthy for travellers. I will be back. They are my Kathmandu family now!
