Hotel Norbu Linka
Ranked #101 of 207 Hotels in Kathmandu
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This hotel was welcoming in that the staff was a super nice, happy group that made you feel so welcomed. We stayed here three nights before going to Pokhara and wished we would have stayed here after our return instead of sampling another place before leaving Kathmandu. They truly seemed disappointed that we weren't continuing our stay. The minor
gripe I had was the shower; water flooded the floor each time as the shower curtains weren't
properly fitted to contain the flow. Just throw a few extra towels down and keep on smiling.
One more thing; no elevators, so is you don't like the stairs after a long day walking around, stay closer to ground floor. This is common of many hotels in the Nepal area. I'm a wimp; the fourth
floor trek wore me out. Breakfast is included and included a nice variety.

I tried several hotels in Kathmadu (e.g. Kathmandu Guest House), and the Norbu Linka was definitely the best one. It is very central but very quite, clean rooms, friendly service, good prices, excellent food

We stayed twice here this time. 5 days first and came back from Pokhara stayed 3 days again.
Location is good.Middle of Thamel Kathmandu and also away from the noise.
Price is right for the comfortable stay. Clean room and very friendly staff always tried to help us with smile.
Hot water always from the solar system when electricity is out and free Wifi is the one of reason we choose this hotel. Instant boiling water pot in the room was good to have tea in afternoon.
Most of all, staff here was the best reason we will come back to Norbu Linka on our next trip to Nepal. Manager Tenzin has beautiful welcomming smile and generous heart. She gave us a suite room with Regular price due to it was not busy season when we visited.

Room Tip: Higher floor is better even we have to climb up little more I think.
