    A bit run down and musty. Better options that are cheaper out there. ”

    I've stayed in a lot of places in Kathmandu and I would recommend many others over this one. This is a bit outdated and in need of fixing. The rooms were big but I was scared to touch anything as I don't think they properly clean the rooms. Fixtures were falling off the walls as well. Over priced for what it is. Don't be fooled by their pictures as I think they were taken when the hotel was new. Had two rooms and both were the same quality.

    good place in Thamel”

    Right in the heart of Thamel, easy access to tourist areas, good for the price. Great staff. Only bad thing was the breakfast was pretty mediocre, and the gym is lousy. But if you aren't there for that, it's hard to beat for a safe, clean, decent hotel right in the middle of things.

    Great hotel. Great shower. Great Animals!”

    This hotel was a fun change with their crazy menu and animals on the bed. The rooms were decent with a wonderful, hot shower and huge tub! Bathroom was the best I had in Nepal. Beds were comfy and a nice seating area. Staff were attentive overall except when I asked for more animals in my room, I think they thought I was joking but I really wanted more! Great place overall wonderful club sandwiches and great service overall.

    Going Solo In Katmandu”

    Breakfast is good, rooms are very clean and quirky. The bed was very comfortable. Sound proofing is good, so you can actually get a good nights sleep. Sauna and gym included in fee and the staff were helpful and attentive. Not really much vibe going on, not a place to meet people. Location is good, just away from the main strip which is nice. For the price I paid through Agoda, I would stay again.

    Much better and cheaper places to stay in Kathmandu”

    Any good reviews you see for this hotel are because the guests didn't try other locations. This place is severely overpriced and the rooms are old and worn out. Not recommended. Other places nearby for less than half the price are much better. Don't be fooled by the photos.

    Feedback from family (Josh Madrazo)”

    Very nice and accommodating staff. Purchased a massage spa thing but had to go to other sister hotel a few blocks away. Not a big deal but would have been nice to not have to go anywhere. In the middle of the tourist part of town with many shops and people watching so that was nice.

    Considering this country, and this city it was a super good hotel”

    The location is the main highlight as it can't get better than that. Right in the middle of everything, the night life, the local streets, the touristic area. Probably the most famous hotel in Katmandu. If you expect to gat hotel like a 5 starts hotel in Mexico then you will be disappointed. But if you understand that Katmandu is different then I think it is absolutely the best that you can get.

    The hotel is nice and the facilities are great! The restaurant had delicious meals and the staff were very accommodating and professional.

    Another lovely stay”

    We've stayed at Aria Boutique and Hotel Spa three times now, and each time, the staff is very friendly and the room has been spacious and nicely decorated. The breakfast menu has several options, all of them delicious, and the hotel's location on the edge of Thamel is far enough away from the bars and nightlife that it's not noisy at night, yet only a few minutes walk away from the center of Thamel. The only small suggestion I have is to do some maintenance and upkeep on the gym equipment (oiling weight machines and making sure the treadmill is working).

    Probably the best of the back-packer hotels in Thamel”

    Conveniently located near many shops and restaurants in Thamel. We booked at Penguin Hotel 1, but were transferred to hotel 2, as there was construction in Hotel 1. Hotel 1 has no elevator and a gym, hotel 2 had an elevator and no gym, but guests at either hotel can use gym at 1. Gym was decent, and windows in hotel 2 were double-paned, so it was very quiet. The internet in 2, was very slow, but that seemed to be par for the course in Nepal. Breakfast took 30 min to prepare, but was good. Spacious, quiet, and comfortable.

    There are a few better places in Kathmandu, but they are at least triple the nightly rate . Remember, this is Nepal , so if you are from Saudia or America it is not the same level of luxury, but the warmth and service of the staff makes it a memorable experience.

    Location, staff, clean

    We stayed for 6 nights at this hotel. The hotel is in a great location, easy walking from hotel to other locations on Thamel. The staff at this hotels are extremely friendly nd helpful. They are a real asset to this hotel. The room is very clean and has everything you need, the internet in the room was quite fast. The power goes off in Thamel just about everyday, but the hotel has a generator that kicks straight in when this happens, so you hardly notice. The only thing that was a little unusual is that you turn the hot water on and it can take 5 to 10 minutes to come through, but this is clearly noted in the bathroom, so that you are aware before taking a shower. It really didn't inconvenience us, we just turned the water in before getting your clothes ready,
