Reviewed April 18, 2013

Located in Kumaripati, a neighborhood south of the main city, this hotel is great for business travels working in Patan. The staff is very helpful, and despite the hustle and bustle of the city around it, it still is a fairly quiet and peaceful place. The upstairs balcony or front courtyard is great for relaxing after a day of work.

Room Tip: Higher floors are a bit quieter

i have stayed in this hotel twice and i have enjoyed it on both occasions.. it is personable.. the staff are very friendly... rooms are clean, value for money .. free internet/coffee machine are a bonus !! Good choice for people who would not like to stay in 'institutionalized settings' where plastic faces welcome you at the reception ...

The Hotel Clarion is a good choice for your stay in Kathmandu. The rooms are clean, the staff are very friendly, plus the restaurant offers a good choice of European, Indian & Chinese dishes.
My third stay & I'm very satisfied.

I have been coming to Nepal with my family for more than ten years and regularly use Hotel Clarion as our "home" in Kathmandu - usually for a week at a time at different times of the year. The rooms are ample and clean. They handle the city's continuous energy problems well. There is AC for the summer and heaters for the winter. The solar power seems to provide a constant supply of hot water - never found wanting. Internet is consistent. and the cable TV covers more than a hundred channels from around the world - though mostly Asian. The food in the restaurant is good quality and they are always willing to adapt meals to taste. I find the staff to be friendly and service oriented. Though not in the heart of the city, its only 20 minutes from the airport (depending on traffic), there are plenty of restaurants up and down the street, its close to the zoo, and taxis are readily available. Reasonably priced, what more can you ask for? Happy to recommend, Bill J and family

Clarion Hotel welcomed me with a cold drink and warm greetings. The hotel staff went out of the way to accommodation my every request. The staff prepared a breakfast at 5:00am before my Mountain Flight Experience and carried a full course Nepali Thali Dinner up 4 flights of stairs so I could enjoy a traditional Nepali dinner on the panoramic Rooftop Terrace. I would recommend the Clarion to anyone who wants to experience traditional Nepal with all of the comforts of home.

Room Tip: I have stayed in three different rooms and enjoyed every room

Very friendly, excellent food, with loads of hot water. The wedding hall next door just adds to the character. Also it is very easy to find your way out onto the ring road and back in again which is very handy after long motorbike trips around the area.

This was just what i wanted, Better facilities and more reliable than the smaller places without going all the way up to the big expensive hotels.

i will be coming back the the Clarion in september for round 2

Clarion has been good value for my money, with staff that are helpful and friendly . The Owner of this Hotel is very helpful and kind also. Rooms are functional with facilities adequate to my family. However the furniture needs to be updated and a fresh paint job too. Internet is available but not consistant. Load shedding is a bother, but that's not the fault of the hotel, at least they are able to keep the lights on with a generator. Unfortunately, the generator doesn't produce enough to keep the heaters going so bring warm clothes in the winter. The restaurant is kept warm cozy! The restaurant is reliable and safe, and serves a choice of east asian, chinese or western food. There are plenty of shops, banks, ATM, a super market and restaurants around and you can walk on quieter streets to explore the neighborhood. The roof decks are a nice place relax. My family likes this Hotel.

Room Tip: chose a room on the front or left side not right side as there is a noisy wedding hall next to right...
