I stayed here for a couple of nights before and after my mountaineering trek; and the hotel was kind enough to hold a duffel bag for me in the intervening three weeks. One of best value hotels, clean rooms, basic but good bathrooms and a decent quiet location. It has outdoor but shaded dining area with a decent selection of food. If I am not staying in Thamel, I'd stay here every time I am in Kathmandu.

Spent 20 days here in late spring of 2014. First, a word about the staff. Karma, who works at the front desk, is one of the nicest, kindest, friendliest, and most professional hotel employees I've ever encountered. But everyone who works at Hotel Tibet -- even the owner -- is incredibly accommodating and gracious to guests. Some of the guests were pretentious and annoying, but the staff handled these ugly tourists so admirably. Next, the restaurant and bar areas: Loved having breakfast on the terrace, off the restaurant, each morning. Appreciated the Illy coffee. Breakfast fare was good and occasionally great. If you order during the rest of the day, try the sizzling chicken and chili chicken. While I appreciated the comforts of the lobby, my favorite space in the hotel is the rooftop bar and terrace. Impeccably clean, with an array of comfortably shady areas. Ample space, greenery, and fresh air. Relatedly, I admired the impeccable landscaping/greenery around the hotel. Third, I appreciated the wide hallways, with quality thick wooden beams and Tibetan decor. Next, during my stay, I stayed in rooms on the third, fourth, and fifth floors. My understanding is that one room used to be haunted, but a Brahman priest performed a ritual and the ghost hasn't been seen since. In general, the rooms were comfortable but left a little something to be desired. I didn't spend much time in my hotel room. I did watch HBO, but room amenities weren't a priority for me. A quiet location. The back of the hotel offers views of Monkey Temple in the distance. The Radisson, diagonally across from Hotel Tibet, has a great buffet. Between the Radisson and Hotel Tibet, taxis are always available. The street across from the Radisson has a convenient market at the end. The Chinese restaurant above it is good. The money exchange storefronts may give you slightly more than hotel. That street is lined with shops (e.g., silk and cashmere scarves, jewelry, t-shirts, diety statues), where you must bargain hard-core or get taken advantage of. I didn't like shopping anywhere in Kathmandu because they take such advantage of tourists. On this street, some of the shopkeepers will take unbelievable advantage, especially of women. It was psychologically painful to endure their tactics. However, the jewelry manufacturing store about halfway down is an exception. They are a bit uneven in their pricing, so bargain, but I recommend taking old jewelry with you for repair. Hope this helps!

The hotel is nice and food is good. Tried Tibetan platter which was too much for one person to consume. Both restaurants, in the roof top and on the ground floor are good. Wifi connection is scratchy though!

The reviews on this hotel are very nice, and my wife and I were really looking forward to staying here. However, our airline changed our layover time and we requested for ONE LESS night 07/31/14 to 08/03/14 as opposed to the 30th. We were told that we would have to cancel and then we were offered a price that was nearly the same as our original 4 nights. So if you might be in this predicament, I would choose a hotel that honors the original agreed upon price.

Dear humblenodnarb,
We sincerely appreciate you taking time to share your feedback. We apologies for the quandary but if you look at the policies its clearly return that ‘’ In case of cancellation less than 48 hours prior to arrival or in case of no-show, one night-stay per room will be charged 100%’’ Also you could have simply rejected our proposal instead of agreeing on that. We have checked in our system and I hope you also had a second visit in our hotel. Definitely there must be some misunderstanding. Our hotel always tried to give more satisfaction and facility as we do for our own family and we will continue to do that in future as well.
I hope to present you the best possible service in the near future.

I stayed in this Hotel last year and was delighted with the service and hospitality of the staff and managers. They all spoke English and were very accommodating. The location was close to most places with lots of souvenir vendors near buy.
I left the quite a few postcards for the hotel to dispatch for me and was delighted that all were received by my friends.
The hotel is very rustic in appearance which blends in nicely with the area.

My first review of this hotel was tough, but since then I have been back many times and it just keeps getting better. They seem to be working hard. Aircon and pigeons still tend to drive me mad but the relatively new cafe upstairs is great, and I love the newer cafe on the ground floor for coffee and cake. Staff very helpful and friendly.
