Despite all the challenges that Nepal has faced in 2015, the Kathmandu Guest House staff remains hopeful. Their hope was contagious. They had nearly completed all of their renovations and repairs following the earthquake in 2015. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. They quickly helped us arrange day trips, taxis, etc. They told us about many great restaurants within walking distance of our room. We really hope to stay at Kathmandu Guest House again one day.

An overated hotel

I feel like im in a cage. Very small room, small bed, small toilet/bath, expensive. There are other hotels in the same location half the price of KGH but offer better service, faster internet, bigger new room and with uninteruptsble power supply despite nepals power shedding. Will not recommend, will never comeback.

Contrast between different types of rooms

Location

For the first night we booked the standard room which had -hair on the bed -ripped bed sheets -dirty sheets -pathetic towels. For the second night we upgraded to the deluxe room, which was a lot better. Clean sheets, towels, and linen. I would have thought,regardless of the room (standard or deluxe) the basics would be the same, which was not the case. If your going to pay for deluxe, there are better hotels in the area for the money.

I had stayed at KGH previously but only in the garden view (non-aircon) rooms. This was the first visit since 2009. Although they are still rebuilding after the earthquake, there was no construction noise from my room in the deluxe wing. The breakfast, though limited, was good, and while the price for the deluxe room is a bit high, it is worth it for the aircon (though on the cooler nights, we didn't need it). Also, on some days, there was no electricity (not unusual for Kathmandu) and the lift wasn't working so we had to climb 4 flights of stairs. If you have difficulty with stairs, it's best to get a lower floor room.

1st Trip to Kathmandu 7th to 11th October 2015

1. Location 2. Courtyard-relaxing/excellent hang out (though a great deal of renovation works still in progress) 3. Rooms-clean (though dusty from reno works)

Because rooms were purchased thru Agoda, probably at lower rates than my other friends, KGH initially housed me on the 5th floor where renovation works were in progress, room was dusty with saggy beds and window facing broken walls! They later changed me to a more pleasant room on the 3rd floor.Though extremely basic (amenities was only a bar of soap and two bottles of h20), bed linens and toilet were clean and pleasant. House keeping and restaurant staff are friendly and helpful. Whilst Front Desk people are more realistic, asking for more money to upgrade the room. Renovation works are noise from morning till late evening - with hammering, breaking down and putting up of walls, etc on each level of the low rise surrounding the courtyard. Hopefully, after all the renovation works are completed and fuel crises over (hotel is only serving basic breakfast and some light food for dinner - at this period), KGH may be a notch higher.
