Hotel Tibet
Ranked #46 of 209 Hotels in Kathmandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 6, 2009

My stay in Kathmandu was completely fulfilling almost primarily due to the wonderful atmosphere at Hotel Tibet. An exotic and beautifully decorated lobby and room, attended by the softest, warm hearted staff I have ever encountered in any hotel. Located in within walking distance to the tourist center, Thamel, yet in its own quiet setting. I intend to visit Nepal again and again, and will always stay at Hotel Tibet.

The attentive and friendly staff helped make this a truely memorable trip and I would definately recommend Hotel Tibet for a relaxing and enjoyable Nepalise break.

I have never been treated better anywhere in the world. The staff are friendly, helpful and gracious. It is in a convenient location near the embassies and a short walk to Thamel. Sure, the power in the evenings is on load sharing and the water in Kathmandu isn't the best, but this jewel box of a hotel over achieves. The lobby features hand-carved wood and beautiful carpets. The roof patio features beautiful views of Kathmandu.

I travel a lot and been to many a hotel over the years during my worldwide travels, and The Hotel Tibet is one of the most personable hotels that I've ever stayed. The Hotel Tibet stands out from the rest in that the owner and entire staff are friendly and go out of their way to try to satisfy the needs of all its guest. This is a boutique hotel tasteful done with Tibetan decorations throughout, and the garden restaurant and peaceful rooftop retreat have comfortable seating and the areas are surrounded by beautiful blooming shrubs and flowers. I stayed twice and both times the staff's concern for my welfare and their genuine friendliness made me feel most welcomed, my rooms were quite satisfactory and the food was good. I highly recommend this hotel as a home away from home.

The Hotel Tibet is a little gem tucked away in an oasis of calm away from all the chaos of Kathmandu but still centrally located for exploring. Authentic Tibetan atmosphere, great value, good food, clean and comfortable rooms with ample hot water and staff who are very friendly and who cant do enough for you. So much better than large international chain hotels where you could be anywhere and get ripped off. Cant fault it and highly recommend it for all. Peter and Gaye, UK

Stayed here 6 nights with the Mrs. Nice room with TV. Clean. Friendly staff. OK breakfast (didn't want fancy breakfast anyway). Had dinner twice and it was good.
Felt safe. My only criticism would be that there is no "Travel Desk" - so don't expect to take any pre-planned trips or tours... you'll have to think of those yourselves. Of course, they can get taxi's for you. Oh, and walking anywhere in Kathmandu is pretty dangerous - due to crazy traffic !! We did walk... but some close shaves.

The hotel is located close to hotel Radisson on a side road. I felt so sorry that i booked this hotel. I didn't get a chance to stay longer and review everything about the hotel as couldn't stand the rooms. It the not the kind of hotel a person would expect with 6th on the reviews count. After a 20+ hours of flight you want to settle in a nice cozy room not smelly, filthy room. I complained to the lady who booked my room online and asked to show me a better room. She moved us to different one, slightly better but not the kind of room for even a 1 star hotel by American standards. I end up paying for half day room charges and move to another hotel, tired and sleepy from the jet lag.
