Hotel Holy Himalaya
Ranked #58 of 210 Hotels in Kathmandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I have stayed at Holy Himalaya Hotel for at least 4 times now and I am planning to return there again this year. The location could not be any better - right in the heart of Thamel near shops and excellent range of places to eat. The staff and service is excellent - I have been made feel at home every time I visit. Being picked up from the airport by them always makes me feel welcome in Kathmandu. Breakfast is good but there are a few places around where I enjoy it more, so I tend to eat outside. For those that like to get up early, ask at reception about free yoga classes on the rooftop! They are worth getting up for. It's my preferred hotel in Kathmandu.

Nice hotel in a quiet alley of Thamel, inside but well serviced. Standard rooms not very nice and superior quite overpriced for what you can find around. Nice lobby, free wifi and proximity to good restaurants and coffee shops so you do not need to have breakfast at he hotel.

We couldn't have asked for a better base in Kathmandu. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful throughout time with them. We spent a night here then returned for our third night as a part of tour package, before going off for 10 days and finally ending our trip to Nepal with 3 more nights here. Storing bags and arranging drop offs and pickups were no problem. Breakfast was a part of our package, these were a great way to start each day.

Room Tip: It is worthwhile getting breakfast as part of your room rate at this hotel. We had a room in the new...

We were impressed with our room the first night we stayed and then again when we came back and stayed for a few more nights at the end of our holiday. Staff were helpful and lovely too. Was nice to have hot water to have a hot shower. Breakfast was good...nescafe coffee was the only downfall but we found a lovely coffee shop just around the corner. Location was in the best place, close to everything, but tucked down a quiet alley to give some privacy and quietness.

Room Tip: 2nd floor was the best.

Stayed here on 2 separate occasions either ends of tours. I was booked by Mosaic but couldn't have been happier, as the hotel has good clean rooms, comfy beds and a top location. It's close to everything in Thamel but the quiet dire street means its relatively quiet. Breakfast ok and staff very helpful. Lovely lobby area and generally punches above its weight.

This hotel is down a side street of Thamel and is probably the quietess hotel I have stayed in Kathmandu. The lobby area is very elaborate for a budget hotel. The rooms are a little overpriced for the quality. We stayed in a superior room which was fine, but nothing special. The bathroom looked new. All was clean. Excellent restaurant at end of road (Gaia). There is no generator (or at least it wasn't off for a lot of the time we were there) - therefore intermittent electricity.

It was a good hotel and very comfortable room. The only problem with our room was that it was pretty loud - it was on the 1 floor and you can hear everything what's going on in reception and in the business centre. Apart from that, very helpful staff, nice breakfast (although if you want proper coffee not nescafe they charge you extra!)
