Susan R. Solo travelers New Zealand, September 26, 2015
Laid back life at the Katmandu Guest House

location, garden, atmosphere
The KGH is an institution in Katmandu and a place I've stayed during each of my five trips to Nepal. The garden is an oasis of calm in what can be a busy city but I was unsure what to expect following the 25th April earthquake earlier this year. Part of the old wing, which was extensively damaged, is being reconstructed and is due for completion in the next 6-8 weeks. However guests come first and work doesn't start until most guests are eating breakfast! Using the garden as part of the dining area was a great choice and adds to the atmosphere, for me. As usual I stayed in the old wing which boasts both twin and double rooms (my changing plans meant I tried both!) although the bathroom arrangements were interesting. One shower drained under the hand basin meaning that once one shower had been taken the floor was wet. One room had the shower drainage organised but placed the hand basin by the entrance door. These idiosyncies apart the rooms are spacious and offer Trekkers plenty of space to dry clothing. Each of the rooms I stayed in had a great view of the garden, but could be noisy with early/late arrivals walking passed in the small hours. Overall rating : I'll definitely be returning!

Reasonabe and friendly staff

Friendly clerks, reasonable price, acceptable facility.
Clerks were all friendly and kind. They always talk to me with warm smiles and ask me if I need any help. When some problems happen, they tried all their best to help me even if it's my own problem. Not expensive but rather cheap. Nevertheless facilities were all at acceptable level or above. And rooms are very safe and secured. Finally food is also good. You can have good dinner in hotel terrace.

Location good, first room was bad

location, location, location
First they put me in some bad quality room, lots of problems. Fan did not work, televisoon not work. After telling these problems they finally change me to room that was ok. Dont know why they put customers who stay longer time, to bad quality rooms. And if you stay one night you get good room right away. Like i did last time.
