We were booked into the Hotel Manaslu as part of a 10-day mountain bike trip we took part in. We spent the first 4 nights of our tour there, after having stayed in a couple of other hotels in Kathmandu the week prior. When we arrived, we were told that a room with a double bed would be ready for us later that day. A few hours later, both us and another couple were told that our rooms had been given away. We were put into a room with 2 singles and a bathroom that smelled like a sewer. Throughout the experience, the staff gave you the dirtiest looks if you aske for anything at all, or dared to complain that you couldn't breathe in your bathroom, or mentioned you saw a rat in the kitchen (true story). The location of this hotel is also terrible, as you have to walk 10 minutes along a poorly lit, busy road to get anywhere with signs of life. And they charge for Internet, which no other hotel we have stayed in in Nepal has done. It felt like a shabby hotel trying to dress itself up as upscale by charging more and putting their staff in matchig uniforms. Do yourself a favor: stay somewhere else.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Established in 1972, Hotel Manaslu has kept the proud heritage of Nepal alive throughout its operating years of inimitable service and warm hospitality. Taking pride in the renowned craftsmanship of Nepali artisans, splendid examples of their craft, including many ancient pieces that have been carefully restored, have been incorporated in its architecture. For an intimate experience of Nepal's art and culture, welcome to Hotel Manaslu, a heritage hotel in the truest sense of the word. We could not be more conveniently located-near the old royal palace, close to many important embassies, and at the center of commercial activities, just 10 minute walking distance from the the popular tourist district of Thamel. Although located at such a busy hub, you will find peace and serenity amidst the harmonious surroundings of Hotel Manaslu, your best accommodation in Kathmandu. "At Manaslu, we combine splendor with Nepalese Hospitality. A model of elegance and services with all the comforts of home." ... more less
