Murni M. Solo travelers Singapore, April 22, 2015
Kind owners sheltered me during the earthquake.

Hospitality, safety, comfort
I was at the hotel for one week. When I needed my visa extension, one of the owners Binaya, volunteered to send me to the immigration. He did it with heart, and it felt sincere. During the earthquake, is asked Binaya if I could come with him, as I was alone. He agreed, too me with him to look for his daughter through the semi apocalyptic streets of kathmandu and and brought me to his family. We experience the aftershocks together, and tremors after tremors. Amazingly, Binaya and family still treated me like a "guest" given such state we were all in. He and his extended families fed me and gave me shelter, made me feel comfortable and showed me love and respect. Binaya was also worried about me and kept calling me more than a dozen times when he found out that the military flight that was supposed to evacuate me, did not land. I slept in the airport and he insisted on taking me home till the flight was scheduled to come. He took me out from the airport the next day to get me some food and gave me one last hugs gooodbye. I was drawn to come to this hotel for a reason. Little did I know that I would come as a stranger and left as one of their family members. Currently the 3 owners are on a mission to give temporary relief aid to the 13 districts in Nepal, to villagers who are still waiting for aid. I admire their courage and sincerity. The Nepalese hospitality is second to none, and with sincere people like the owners of this hotel, Fanindra, Santosh and Binaya, I assure you that you are in good hands when staying at this hotel. The staff are always polite, and will pay attention to your needs. Thank you Hotel Zen Holiday, may you be revive your glory and be blessed for the coming years to come after this tragic event. God bless you all..

Comfortable stay

Food, spacious rooms, value, helpful staff, good room service, very clean.
Staff were friendly and very helpful. Offered great value for money delicious Nepali food at the hotel restaurant. Early rise for hot showers. Overall a comfortable stay, but noise, considering its location in Thamel, it's difficult to avoid.

Great staff & location

Staff, location, cleanliness
Excellent service by the staff, they go above and beyond to attend to your every need. Location is perfect, in the middle of Thamel. Rooms are clean, but noisy day&night (dogs, traffic, restaurant kitchen, generator), beds are extremely hard, wi-fi in-room poor. TV has 5 English-spoken channels, incl. HBO. Bathroom OK, hot water only in evenings.
