Review of Hotel Himalaya
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 7, 2019
I attended a conference here and it was ok but nothing special. Breakfast ok but again just average. My experience was that staff in general were polite but not very helpful. The hotel was quite expensive compared to many other hotels in Kathmandu but not among the most expensive. I stll did not feel that this was value for money.

We had a conference there. The rooms are pricey, the service was very good, the food was good, but due to the price, don't think we'll go back. The conference facilities are adequate, but the coffee/tea breaks were nothing special.

Attended a conference and stayed here for four nights after a few nights in a three-star hotel in Thamel. I'd rather have remained at the three-star.

The hotel is showing its age. Maintenance isn't great (shower kind of works, A/C works but thermostat does, etc.). And the service isn't wonderful, either. The Concierge seemed flummoxed by my question of how much a taxi to Thamel would cost. The bellman was challenged at actually getting a taxi for me. The dining room staff mostly stand around and look at you (sometimes) but rarely think that you might want a refill on your water or a second cup of coffee.

Given the price, I definitely don't think I got the value. This place is fine, but you can do better.

Room tip: All rooms seem quite with no road noise.

My wife and I just returned from Nepal where we spent seven nights in this hotel. Our stay was amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, service and facilities was exceptional and the food very good. Would definitely recommend.

Room tip: top floor has best facilities

Its Kathmandu, so there aren't really many choices but this place is just not worth it. The WIFI didn't work, the food was terrible and the staff are entitled and don't treat you with respect.

They also serve water bottles that have already been opened... not what you want at all!

Room tip: choose a different hotel

I’ve been to Nepal about six times now and usually stay at The Summit but got persuaded this time to stay at Hotel Himalaya.

Great location and space. Lovely rooms and good service from staff.

Breakfast was lovely and a great sense of natural light everywhere as it was so big.

Good simple gym but needed the AC on more.

Loved the pool for a relax and great shops outside.

Pros:
Location
Lovely place to unwind on the terrace
Good food

Cons:
Polyester towels - i’d expect 100% cotton towels but not to be. The towering robe was though but the towels weren’t - might have saved a few rupees but really wouldn’t expect that of a hotel of this standard.
Pool - they need to either grow vegetation up around the pool or screen parts of it so it can’t be seen from the terrace. They often have events so people hang around on the terrace at lunch and stare whilst you’re on the sun lounger / swimming. Easily fixable...
