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.

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.

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.

Clean and cosy

High sleep comfort, funny small details, cleanliness
Was glad to stay there again. Bright and clean room with all the necessary comforts. I especially liked the small things, which are not usual for most hotels, for example there were two types of blankets - the big one and a light, very comfortable one, felt more like a nice rug. Different options of lights in the room - so you could choose between a dim and romantic light and a bright and cheerful one. Funny door cards, they made me laugh a lot (you just have to see that). The restaurant has an extensive coffee menu, i recommend to try Illy Tiramisu (espresso with finger cookies and ice-cream).

Very spacious executive room, nice gym, bar ans sauna, beautiful restaurant 24 hours
I was upgraded to executive. It's very spacious with huge bathtub, big desk, coffee table, nice balcony. Internet and power 24 hours. Vast menu in restaurant, good choice of breakfast. Food and mocktails are very tasty. Angus beef is delicious. Special thanks for staff and especially for Kunchan - he was very helpful and attentive. Location is wonderful - in Thamel but in quiet corner. I suppose this hotel is ideal for business travellers and not only.
