Hotel Tradition
Ranked #175 of 205 Hotels in Kathmandu
Reviewed March 15, 2009

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 nights whilst in Thamel. Rooms were on the small side and the bathrooms were even smaller when you turned on the shower the roilet and the sink and everything else in the bathroom would also get wet! But at least there was always hot water - which not all hotels in Thamel have.
It was a couple of minutes further ot fro the centre of Thamel so is a lot less noisy, but still a close walk to shops and restaurants.
If you are on a budget and value for money its well worth it.
Laundry was expensive so I would recommend to use an outside source.

Decently clean place. Hot water at varying times but in Sept a cool shower was OK. Beds are really hard, thin mattresses, had to use our thermarests under the mattress. Bathrooms were fine. Restaurant was good, great view there from the top floor. Location in Thamel is good, walk or rickshaw to just about anywhere in the tourist district. Paid 20-25 US per night. Don't bother with the suite. Fans in most rooms. Mngmt was very helpfull and stored our stuff while we went rafting. Reasonably quiet as it's kinda out of the main drag of Thamel. The mattresses are the only real issue, and may not be for some people.

Hotel Tradition is a not in the centre of Thamel but everything is within walking distance or rickshaw. The rooms are excellent, with ensuite bathrooms and some with air conditioning or at least a fan. The food on the 8th (top) floor restaurant, with fantastic views overlooking KTM valley is great and there's a varied choice of Nepalese and Tibetan food (I liked the Chicken Momo and the Chicken Sizzler). Staff were friendly and helpful, and made you feel at home.

Our party of 5 stayed during the summer of 2003, so it was the low season and paid around $6 a night, which was great - no idea how much the prices are during the rest of the year.

There was also a good cheap laundry service, and windows were double glazed so it was possible to drown out the bustle of the city streets (which can be almost constant).

The owner exhibits his Thankas all around the hotel which are available to buy. All in all, a great place to stay - we had no problems at all.
