Reviewed November 25, 2009

We moved to the Tibet Guest House from the Hotel Ganesh Himal, and it was a step up. It was a little more expensive, but worth it. The had large rooms, free wifi in the lobby and rooms on the lower floors, and a nice roof deck with great views of the city. It is in a good location for the shops and restaurants in Thamel. Not plush by any means. The rooms are a bit dated, but it is a good budget option. There seemed to be a lot of trekking groups staying there during our stay.

The free airport pickup was on time from our international flight. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were large with a decent shower and bathroom. The meals at the place were great - with them offering a buffet breakfast as well as decent sized salads at lunch. You could also change currency at a decent rate and book trips. The internet is monitored by yourselves and you can pay as you go or at the end or use te free wifi. The location of the hotel we feared would be noisy in Thamel area, but it just off the busy roads and was suprisingly quiet. For $40 US per night - we were very pleased.

Electricity black outs being common - they had a generator which kept the place light. Take a head torch though!

Have stayed on three occassions here on visits to Kathmandu and out of numerous hotels in Nepal this is one of my favorites.
Good: Friendly Staff, Decent Rooms, Good Food, Great Value Rates, Home to many friendly travellers without losing that cosy feeling.
Bad: Rooms are getting a little tired, bathroom may not be sparkling...
Verdict: I don't think you'll do any better than this without spending a lot more and you can certainly do a lot worse.

First, let me say that any lodging in Kathmandu is going to be quite different from what one would expect in the States. But I found my rooms
(I stayed in two different rooms over the course of a month) to be comfortable and clean. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant next to the lobby serves what I consider good food at a reasonable price. I also appreciated the availability of two computers at a nominal charge to keep up with emails. It is located in the heart of Thamel, yet the entrance is on a side street so you're not overwhelmed with the Thamel traffic.

very nice clean rooms in the most exciting location in kathmandu, if you are traveling there for the great treking and other outdoor activities then the guesthouse is located in the heart of the backpacking and trekking area. far enough away from the roads to get rest with out listening to scooter horns all day. rooms are very clean and the staff make life there as easy as possible.

This was my 5th time in Nepal and the best place I have ever stayed in. I stayed for two months and loved it. Nothing was a problem to the wonderful staff and my own family couldn't have looked after me better. It was neither cheap nor expensive but incredible value for money and the rooms were clean and well furnished. Always hot water too which for those of you who have been to Nepal is a definate bonus!! The food is excellent. It is next to the tourist area but off the road and quiet. It is ideal for all ages. You won't be disappointed!!
