We booked to stay here on the recommendation of a friend. Sadly we only stayed 1 night here but we were welcomed and had a lovely stay. The food in the restaurant was delicious and good value. The service was excellent. The rooms were a very good standard.

I stayed here for 10 nights in a double with on suite as well as in a double with shared bathroom. I was in Kathmandu for work, a conference in central Kathmandu. I was a bit worried being all the way in Patan but it was a blessing, a haven of piece from the hustle and bustle of central Kathmandu. Very quiet, lovely helpful staff, comfortable beds and great food.

I was worried about staying in Patan, a little bit of a trek from the main attractions of Kathmandu, until I arrived at Summit Hotel. Not only is the hotel a green, peaceful haven away from the traffic and noise of the main city, but Patan has its own Durbar Square that rivals its counterpart in Kathmandu--thought I had to tear myself away from Summit's gardens to see it. If you've already had a busy vacation, it's tempting just to spend the day at the hotel, wandering around the various paths to different garden hideaways. The hotel's mountain wing might be more impressive when monsoon clouds aren't hiding the view, but if you go in the rainy season, be sure to stay in the garden wing, on the second floor to get the beamed, slanty ceilings and long, wide balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. Sheltering from a sudden downpour, I struck up a conversation with what turned out to be the hotel's friendly owner at dinner on the patio under lovely old dripping trees. True to his lead, all the staff were extremely welcoming and ready with a laugh--and with a helping hand when bank cards became uncooperative! Lots of other restaurants and shopping within a fair walking distance, but most likely you won't want to leave once you enter this haven.

Stayed here prior to a Himalayan climbing trip. It is very peaceful given the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu and a real alternative to a noisy hotel in the more popular Thamel district. It is well worth the inconvenience of a 30 minute taxi to Thamel for the peace and quiet (v cheap and taxis at the gate. We booked a taxi for the day once and it cost just around GBP15 equivalent ). Food is excellent - try the chicken burger - sounds ordinary but ever so tasty! Everest beer or Tuborg available - lovely! Good breakfast with eggs cooked to order. WiFi works. I found the service excellent.

Visited here twice on the way to and from Mount Everest (via Tibet). The place is beautiful. We were gently led to a beautiful table with comfortable chairs where drinks waited for us. The service and kindness was first-class the waiters seeming to sense our weariness and respond to it. The hotel a jewel blending traditional intricately carved Nepalese construction with some modern facilities without losing it’s character. There is a real peace and spirituality about the atmosphere here that is difficult to define.The garden rooms are simple but pleasant with walk in showers and comfortable beds. The food is really good and fresh "curry night" is not to be missed. If you like good service, simplicity and a pleasant atmosphere, this is not to be missed.

Excellent location in Lalitpur in a beautiful setting. Gorgeous peaceful gardens, welcoming outdoor and indoor sitting areas, small pool, convenient spa, stunning views of the mountains and extremely courteous, helpful staff. Room was quiet and the hotel was good place to work and to relax. Food was varied and good, but dining room dark (noticeable especially at breakfast). WIFI varied in the rooms but strong in the main areas. Towels and linens were well used and laundry service needs improving. Overall, small housekeeping/maintenance details were ignored or missed in the dining room and the room. A short-term guest may not notice, but a long-term guest will.

Room Tip: The majority of rooms have two twin beds which can be moved together.

Summit hotel is a heaven of peace in the busy Katmandu Valley. It is one of the best hotel of the city, located in a quiet district of Patan. Rooms, food, swimming pool are perfect. People are always helpful. It is relaxed. Interesting mix of families, business people, NGOs...
Looking forward to coming back
