Very expensive for what we got
This is a three star hotel. Staff were very nice and helpful, as they are at all hotels in Nepal. The rooms was fine, everything worked and was clean, but for the price we could have booked something way better. We moved the second night and found a much nicer hotel for nearly half the price.

Clean Hotel, Overpriced.
I booked seeing good reviews here but was little disappointed. No warm welcome may be because we were local people. Room was small for the price but was clean..A/c runs only when electricity is available. Similar standard rooms are available for 30-40% less price. Breakfast was good.

A Surprise in Thamel
Location, Food and Staff
The hotel received good reviews and so I gave it a try. The location was superb, at the tourist centre of Thamel, Kathmandu. It's close to a Halal restaurants. The staff are attentive and helpful. The only downside is that they don't have a nice view.

Excellent service
nice staff, comfortable rooms, service
Their crazy-menu is a must-see thing. Never seen anything like that even in hotels in other countries. They offer all sorts of services - from babysitting and yoga classes to decorating your room with balloons and rose petals. Be attentive looking through it - some services listed there are free: I ordered a larger coffee mug instead of the standard cup provided in the room. Usually I find cups provided in all hotel rooms too small so it’s really nice of them to give guests a choice.

Perfect place
perfect service, location, comfort
New and comfortable hotel, room luxury and clean, with bright lights, AC and hot water (and it's really hot! It not so easy to find in Nepal). Breakfast I chose from a list with sets, it was delicious and plentiful. Staff helpful and polite, when I needed a local sim-card receptionist sent the guard with me to show the closest place to buy it. It's my second staying in Royal Penguin, and when I'll come to Kathmandu again this hotel will be my first choice.

Great place in Thamel
comfort, best service, design
Great hotel, central location in Thamel yet very quiet. Very comfortable rooms. Outstanding service, The staff does everything possible to make you feel like at home. When I needed an ATM, they not only showed me the direction but one of the staff even went together with me so I could easily find it.
