we booked two rooms during our stay here:
A standard room at Nalanda Wing & a Deluxe/Super deluxe room at Hamilton.

Couldn't fault the Hamilton deluxe room - it was like being back home- nice, clean, comfortable, warm. If there was one problem - it was the cold longish walk back to the room from the lobby on a cold, dark night. Though i imagine in warmer weather it would make a beautiful, refreshing walk. Also the deluxe room prices are a little steep.

The Nalanda room on the other hand was just your basic budget accommodation. Fairly clean though there were old stains in the bathroom, shower curtains-not cleaned and dust behind the couch. Not warm enough during cold nights even though heaters are provided. Would recommend that you take the deluxe room as after a day out in kathmandu valley you would want a warm, relaxing place to unwind.

Location :
Bad roads from the airport to the hotel : lots of potholes making it a very slow, bumpy ride which added to the already congested traffic made the trip from the airport an estimated one hour to an hour 15mins. The roads are under construction at the moment though once done up - the journey should only take 30mins. i did check with the locals - and the entire kathmandu appears to be under road construction with an estimated 2 years to completion.
Otherwise the hotel is located in a fairly peaceful, quiet area at the foot of a park. But it is far from city center. City center is where all the shopping, night life and restaurants are. Once again the road condition made the trip to city center much longer : 30 -40mins.

Hotel restaurant :
breakfast was a small affair but decent, buffet was good, a la carte menu had an overall good review from us-mainly the briyani, chicken shaslik. price is reasonable.

Spa :
tried the spa at the hotel - price was reasonable. massage was average-good. but gosh the massage rooms were cold. was shivering after the massage even though there were heaters and a blanket over you but it was not warm enough and i couldn't wait to layer up my clothes. also would recommend that you book earlier (at least an hour) as they do not have in-house massage therapist stationed there for walk-in clients and will have to call around to find out where and which therapist are free at that time. But they do have english-speaking therapist

Overall if i were to head back to Kathmandu : i may try a hotel closer to city center for shopping, variety of walking distance restaurants and nightlife, but if i were to decide on a retreat i may return to this hotel but this time will only take the deluxe room and probably visit during warmer weather to enjoy the resort and the pool.

Its a perfect hotel to have a relaxing time after a day filled with Neplai adventure. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. The food is excellent and buffet has many varieties ranging from Indian to Italian cuisines.
The hotel is far from main city and with current condition of road it took us about an hour to reach to places like Thamil and Darbar square.

This is a quite nice place on the outskirts of Kathmandu. You need a taxi ride to the city. It consists of a nice green park with some cottages and bigger buildlings. Overall quality is 2-3 star. Mattress was a bit hard.
Staff is friendly but not overly qualified, so don't expect a lot of help if you need help beyond the usual.
I had also a lot of noise every morning because just outside the perimeter of the place some big trucks started their engines every morning and made a lot of noise. But this was particular to my room and neighbouring ones, this should not be the case in most rooms.

Kathmandu is chaotic, noisy, dirty, but alive with friendly people, colour and interest. At the end of a day of sight-seeing or travel, Park Village Hotel is a blissful escape. The grounds are extensive, as is the range of apartment options. Ours was comfortable and air conditioned with a balcony overlooking beautiful gardens full of trees, shrubs, and manicured lawns. We booked through an agency on a deal with upgrade elements. When we arrived, we, nor the reception checked the details, so initially we were not offered what we booked. When we discovered this, they changed our room without any fuss or argument. The meals in the restaurant are good value, so don't worry about 5* prices, they are not. Staff are helpful, and pleasant. As with most hotels in the Indian sub-continent, the room services can be a bit tired. Be prepared for the missing plug, or the very slow supply of warm/hot water to bath or shower

Room Tip: Pay the extra for air-conditioned room as these are newer and better equipped.

A former palace retreat now used to allow visitors to Kathmandu to spend time in a beautiful setting, with a beautiful pool and possibly the best vegetarian buffet I've ever eaten, just delightful! Many room choices and options, the bungalows were very nice, clean, bright and airy. Enjoy the grounds.

Quiet location away from all the hustle and bustle of Thamel. Facilities and surroundings are very soothing. Roads leading to this hotel is rough, however its worth the effort given its serene setting. Nice place to wind down at end of a hectic day. Friendly staff and excellent service.

The Park Village is intimately linked to my family's three and a half years in Nepal: I spent here my first 60 nights or so, and the last one too. We've eaten here more than once, my daughter and her friends have used the pool, my cats have run around in the park, and a good friend has even once found shelter inside its gates, graciously opened by the guards, while a political demonstration outside was turning awry.
With all this sentimental baggage in mind, I'll do my best to be objective. The best thing about the Park Village is its location outside the maddening city, at the foot of the green Shivapuri reserve. And green is the park too, where the hotel's low buildings encircle a lovely tree-lined alley. It is peaceful, quiet, and you can even rent apartments by the week, the month (as we did) or even for longer. The pool is nice and clean, the gym somewhat run down, the food quite repetitive but not bad (be careful and keep to Indian and Chinese dishes, Western cuisine is not their strength), the service always kind if not entirely professional. All in all, a oasis of sorts.
