    The hotel is conveniently located at Thamel city”

    The shower system is great. The room is relatively big. The location is convenient.

    The environment is comfortable. However, there is always an electricity cut due to the power limitation in the city. This is out of the control from the hotel. Generally, the staffs are friendly. However, be careful about their prices charged on day tour or coach charges. It is much more expensive than outside price.

    Excellant experience, Holy Lodge”

    The staff at Holy Lodge were wonderful, especially the staff that works there. The hotel was well situated in the Thamel District of Katmandu, close to many restaurants and city attractions.

    My husband and I stayed at Holy lodge for 10 nights in Katmandu. The manager of the hotel, Madhukar Basnet, went out of his way to ensure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. Mr. Basnet was also very helpful, arranging for us to fly to Pokarra, and also arranged our stay at a hotel there. Holy Lodge is great! We would stay there again for sure!

    Good location

    I booked the room with full pay, but Holy Lodge didn't reserve the room for me, so send me to another guest house for first night. For second night, I was arranged in noisy room, even though I request for quiet room when I booked, and Holy Lodge respond they will kept the room as I request for me.

    Awesome Staff at Holy Lodge”

    Amazing helpful staff, proximity to restaurants etc. and ease of booking side trips

    Madhukar Basnet was awesome in helping us arrange side trips for a day tour and 2 day trip to Chitwan. I was more high maintence on the return from Chitwan as I left my phone there. Madhukar helped me call the lodge, translate and dealt with getting it on the bus back to Kathmandu, while I was on my way to the airport. The phone arrived back in my home country safely and it is my thanks to Madhukar and following up on the phone after I left. The other staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful to our group of three.

    Pretty good for a place like this”

    Large room, Penthouse level, free breakfast

    It was pretty good. We paid about $104 for 2 nights so it's not like we were staying at the Hyatt or something (which my wife would have preferred), but it was good just the same. They have much cheaper rooms than what we had (we had the Deluxe 3 bed sweet at the top of the stairs - A-7). If you stay there, i would recommend staying in this room. It's a bit more money, but as i indicated above, not much more. Has it's own shower and toilet (by comparison to some of the other rooms in which the shower and toilet are shared. Very good experience.

    Friendly staff and great location.”

    Helpfull staff, near shops and restaurants.

    We got a double room and were put in an old, small ugly room with nothing but 2 old beds. I asked them for a better room and they took me to the front building to a much better one but they wanted 300% of what I'd pay. I went back to my room upset and few minutes later the same kid came back to show me a much better room for the same price I payed. So, first I would check the room and make sure that's what you want, because they do have very shabby rooms and decent ones. After that, it was great. Very helpful staff, they actually directed us to best Nepaly restaurant in the area, gave us all info and directions we needed, and kept our backpacks safe in the loby until we left to the airport at 8pm.

    location, room, value

    We stayed in a deluxe room which was large and comfortable. The bathroom was fine and had plenty of hot water. The TV and AC were good as well. The location is great. The hotel is on a less popular street so you don't get the night noise, but just a half a block away is lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff are nice. Sometimes they don't understand so well but they are always trying to please. The staff could benefit from a class on providing good customer service to Westerners, but they were always super kind. Breakfast is basic but sufficient. We stayed again at this hotel when we returned to Katmandu the second time, so we were very pleased with our stay.
