Before and after earthquake

Location and staff
We spent one night in Bright Star before earthquake. Hotel is Thamel standard, no extra comfort, but clean. Hot shower and electricity is available 24 hours a day. Staff is very friendly. When we came back after earthquake, hotel was closed, because two adjacent houses are totaly damaged. But the owner told us, his hotel will be reopend in two weeks, after water and electricity is reconected. Please help to restart Bright Star hotel by creating new bookings.

Great family-run place

Staff, location, value
Great. Just like all the reviews I read, they do a great job and really work hard to make the guests happy and this really made a difference for me. Great dining close by, went to Western Tandori at owner's suggestion and it was a hit as well. Thank you and I will see you again soon.

Fantastic Owner Gopal

The owner is friendly,caring and helpful, the location is perfect and close to everything, the price is affordable and good
My wife and I arrived at almost midnight, the owner Gopel stayed up to meet us, unfortunatly I left my day pack with my phone, tablet etc in the taxi. Gopel started ringing around that night, he took us to the Tourist Police Station the next day giving us a guided tour as we went. After all the paper work he pointed us in the direction of some of the more interesting sites in Kathmandu. He continued to call the police, airport and taxi company until he had tracked down my bag then took us to the airport to pick it up. He went above and beyond the call of duty and would only accept a thank you in return. Gopal was also a porter and guide for many years, he has an absolute wealth of information and experiance which he was only too willing to share. He runs a travel company and is more than happy to give advice, telling us everything from the best priced transport, the best rivers to go rafting in to the best route to take and villages to stay at on our hiking trip. He seems to really care about his guests and wants them to have a great time in Nepal. As for the hotel it is clean, comfortable and in an excellent location in the main tourist area of Thamel. It is close to everthing you need but down a quiet side street where we where not bothered by the constant horn honking that pervades most of Kathmandu.

Great place with friendly staff

Location, price, staff
We stayed two nights before heading trekking. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and have us tips on our upcoming trek as he used to work as a guide/porter. The room was clean enough and the bathroom had hot water, which was great. Great value for money. We tried to stay again after our trek but the guesthouse was full!

Oasis in Kathmandu! !

The Brightstar hotel is like an oasis in Katmandu. Most of traveler's hotels at Tamel district are similar to each other. But The Brightstar hotel has two distinguished points from other hotels.  The first is a quietness out of noise of Tamel.  You can take a peaceful rest at your room after your day tour. If possible, you can experience Nepali's daily life with Gopal's family on the roof. The second is you can get from Mr. Gopal and his family member the all of special concierge services regarding your trip in Nepal. Consequentially, I extended my staying to 5 days from 2 days so that enjoyed stightseeing in Katmandu. In addition, they arranged not only Langtang Himalaya trekking but also trip to Bhutan for me. As a result, I could enjoy all these trekking and trip in efficient, in comfortable and in cost-saving, This is the first experience for me to have such a relieved travel so far. Once again, I really appreciate to Mr. Gopal and his family for everything which they have done to me and do wish all other travellers experience his fantastic services.too.

It's more than a hotel!

Perfect location, amazing staff & hot showers.
Bright star is your home away from home! The rooms are comfortable, the showers are hot and the location is perfect; it's tucked away in a side street of Thamel but still in close proximity to everything! Besides the facilities of the hotel, was the friendliness and hospitality I received from the Bright Star family the best thing about my stay! They make you feel so welcome from the minute you meet them - It's like having a Nepali family! I was fortunate enough to celebrate Holi with them and the rest of the guests at hotel and this is an experience I'll never forget. Bright Star deserves 10/10 and 100%...this was definitely my best hotel experience ever and I can't wait to go back again!
