“Great service, great value”
Reviewed July 26, 2007

Hadn't booked in advance and, after having to leave Kathmandu Guest House because of a very large incoming group, found the Samsara Resort. It's new, done out well with small bar, restaurant and really nice garden. Rooms are spacious with A/C and cable TV. Staff very firendly and helpful, from the poor young chap who has to lug suitcases up the stairs to rooms (there's no lift) to Ramesh, the attentive but unintrusive manager.

A real feeling that they really understand what service and hospitality are. It's no 5 star but there's good attention to detail everywhere. Was even called up by the restaurant at 10ish asking if I'd like a cuppa brought to the room! Would definitely staye here again and would happily reccommend to others.

Prices are a little higher than KGH garden rooms but I reckon it's well worth the extra $10 or so. Hope they keep the personal service up as the hotel becomes more popular, as I'm sure it will.

The Samsara is a brand new 5 storey hotel set in a peaceful garden behind the Vaishali Hotel off Thamel Marg in the popular tourist area of Kathmandu. Rooms are quiet, spacious, with very comfortable beds, plenty of pillows, reverse cycle a/c and spotless well appointed bathrooms with ample hot water. They have cable tv, fridges and broadband internet. There are great views of the mountains from the upper floors and roof terrace, and a sunny terrace for breakfast. The lobby has a small bar and restaurant with starched tablecloths and very helpful staff.

A key attraction of this hotel aside from its convenient but quiet location is the incredibly helpful, friendly but not intrusive manager who is always on hand to assist with any arrangements and who is obviously keen to make this new hotel a success. The contrast between him and indeed the whole hotel with those in Tibet or India couldn't be more stark. After 3 months driving from Australia this hotel is the most comfortable and welcoming we have come across.

The only draw back but which shouldnt daunt too many travellers to Nepal is the lack of a lift, but we are assured that once the political situation stablises one will be installed.

  • Liked — Convenient but quiet location, clean well appointed rooms and helpful staff
  • Disliked — The stairs up to the 5th floor
  • Tips/Secrets — Find it next to Hotel Thamel (it's too new for most guidebooks/taxi drivers); ask the manager for anything
