Best place to stay!!
Friendly and welcoming staff, rooms were equipped with towels, hot water, and were clean. This place is situated in a small alley, behind a very busy tourist street, which was nice since it was a bit quieter. The view is very nice from the rooftop of the city. There's a restaurant on the rooftop, which serve a variety of foods including western foods. All at a very reasonable price. They also served a complimentary breakfast, which was very lovely! The kitchen staffs are extremely friendly, service with a smile always! This place offers a travel agent. It's nice, they book everything for you if you like and also recommend things to see/do. They're very relaxed people, not pushy at all and leave it to you. If you need to go anywhere, they also have a car available for hire. The drivers are very friendly. He picked us up from the airport always on time and also drop us off and picked us up at various places of our request. If you stay in Kathmandu, his place is worth while.

Dont be fooled by the room details/pics
Bed and linens
The Hotel offered a tv and telephone, when i checked in, the tv is not working and no telephone. When i complained to the reception the technician came but cannot repair the problem and left the tv rceiver, extra sockets and boxes scattered inside the room. He never returnd unitl we checked out. They mentioned in the room description, a DEDICATED toilet/bath is outside/near the room, i was also given the key, but one night when i used MY toilet, somebody is inside, i dont even know why he has the key.

I will stay at Hotel Backyard when I am in Kathmandu again. The service is great as well as the tour planning. Every staff member goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed.

Great Value with Welcoming Staff
Helpful Staff, Perfect Location, and Organized Activities
The staff of Hotel Backyard was very accommodating and did everything to make sure every aspect of our trip was enjoyed and memorable. The moment we woke up for breakfast we enjoyed the warm greetings of the staff to make our meal fit to our needs. Attentiveness did not end here, but the staff were very careful to ensure my interests were met into planning each day of my stay in Nepal were satisfied. Exceptional tourist locations were chosen and timings were perfect during the day to witness and celebrations and traditions that we're going on. After a long fun filled day of sightseeing we were able to relax very comfortably in our well powered air conditioned clean room. Whenever we were met by staff, they always ensured our happiness by asking us how our day went and if we required anything (usually tea or coffee). The wifi signal was strong and present in our room and the dining area, which provided a good view of the mountain areas. Despite being in a country that was recently stricken by earthquakes, we didn't feel any effect of it at Hotel Backyard. We were just met with exceptional service, in a superb room, located at the heart of Kathmandu's tourist facilities. Thank Yu and will return!

A friendly hotel at the heart of Thamel
Staff service, location and price
We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Backyard. We were really treated as VIP guests. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and they speak Good English. There were not so many guests at that time probably because of the post-earthquake concerns but everything has been back to normal. We did not experience or at least feel any aftershock and the restaurants and shops are all back to business. The hotel itself was very much in good condition. The heritage sites are all open, except for Changu Narayan, and they were absolutely fantastic.

Well Within Expectations
Good Location & Value
The stay was well within my expectations. Great location in a side street just off Thamel Marg. Downside is that noises from the side street can be heard very clearly & loudly from as early as 6am. I would advice that light sleepers try to get a room on the top floors (4th & 5th). However that brings me to a next downside, which is the climb up to the top floors can be a minor hassle to some. Still, I suppose the above are to be had in any hotels in Thamel area in the same price bracket. Not major issues to me at all. I would recommend this hotel to value seekers.
