“Perfect !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

I cannot believe I am using the word "Perfect" for an hotel in Nepal, but this one actually is perfect.

The hotel is brand new (opened in October 2012). The location is great: in Thamel but slightly outside of the busiest area, it is really quiet. Rooms on the back side are even quieter, just ask for it.

More importantly, it is one of the very places which have electricity and hot water running 24 hours a day ! Hot water is really hot, and there is as much as you want !

The room is not huge, but clean and nicely decorated. The staff is delightful and eager to help.

The hotel doesn't have any restaurant, so there is no breakfast included. However, the city is full of varied breakfast opportunities...

I really regret not knowing this place before...

Comfortable and clean rooms, very friendly staff! We stayed here for one week and it was a great stay especially when you compare it to other hotels. The restaurant at the roof, The Reef, is great. We loved the food and the service was perfect!

I checked in for one night and was pleased to be upgraded to a suite which was very nice. Very clean and very spacious. There is power shedding in Nepal meaning limited hours of electricity but they have a generator so they were able to provide 24/7 hot water and electricity. The concierge was extremely helpful in helping to plan activities with no intentions of hard selling.

We enjoyed our first night so much that we decided to extend our stay in Kathmandu. Hotel was very helpful. As I had extra discount with my bank credit card, they did not pressure me to extend via direct booking and let us continue to stay in the upgraded room. House keeping did a tremendous job turning over the room considering how messy we were.

On our last night before we returned to Singapore, I decided to come back to Gaju Suite and was upgraded to the same room I stayed previously. The stay was immaculate. I can easily say this was the best hotel i stayed in Nepal (stayed 5 hotels in 12 nights).

My family and I spent 3 nights at Gaju in January 2013, and this was by far the most tasteful budget hotel we'd stayed at during our 1 month in Nepal. The hotel is new, the rooms stylish and the hot water and power were always working when we needed them. Entering the rooms felt like stepping from third world to first world - a bit of luxury just when you needed it after the dust and frenetic pace of Thamel. We needed a extra bed in the kids room (3) and this was done without fuss. It did make it a bit squeezy, but the kids thought the flat screen TV more than compensated for lack of space. The only negative was the noise at night due to the opening of a new restaurant upstairs, but the staff assured me this was due to opening week celebrations only. Might be an idea to take earplugs...just in case.

Me & my two friends stayed here for 5 nights over New Year, and we left extremly satisfied with the excellent rooms & service this hotel has to offer. Not only are the staff amazingly helpful and there for advice, but they make you feel very welcome.
The location of the hotel is in the heart of Thamel, close to shops, bars, restaurants & has easy links to other places of interest.
After viewing a number of hotels prior, it was like a dream coming true getting to this place, and would be top of the list if im lucky enough to return in future...nothing compares in Thamel... :)

I stayed at Gaju suite hotel for a couple of days in January 2013. The location of the hotel is right in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu where it is easy to access travel agents, great shops and restaurants. The best with the hotel was the friendly staff and the power back up system (there are continuous power cuts in Nepal). Also, the room was big with great beds and lighting. All in all a great place to stay.
