Don’t know why this place has bad reviews . The location is fantastic, staff excellent. Great value for money . The bed was the most comfy in our stay and we stayed at Dwarika hotel during our stay . Wish we had stayed here instead . You are right in the heart of Kathmandu but have the benefit of a beautiful quiet garden when returning to the hotel , we are coming back next year and this will he first on our booking list .
Dear Lesley, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we were so pleased to have you stay with us in KGH. We love to see you again in near future. Thank you once again and have a great day. with regards Binup Giri
Iconic Kathmandu hotel”
The hotel is 51 years old but still going strong. It’s been the choice of most celebrities who have visited Kathmandu and lots of mountain climbers. We stayed in a standard room which was in the original wing and a little basic but comfortable. Our room overlooked the rear of the hotel kitchen so it was a bit noisy at night and early in the morning. The hotel opens on the east side on to the middle of Thamel with lots of restaurants and of course souvenir shops, rickshaws, etc. A few streets are clear of traffic but the others can be hectic with cars and bikes and carts as well as hundreds of tourists. The breakfast was good, dinner was reasonably priced and delicious. Staff were helpful. The only difficulty was finding the entrance. The taxi driver didn’t really know where he was going so make sure you have a good map. The taxi entrance is on the western side of the hotel down a short road.
Dear guest, Thank you for choosing Kathmandu Guest House. We like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking time and reflecting your experience while staying in Kathmandu guest house. The above concern has been noted and we shall look into the concern matter very seriously. Thank you again hoping to see you again.
This is a Grand Dame of Kathmandu's hotel scene. Beautiful buildings and grounds in an ex-palace slap bang in the middle of Thamel, but peaceful and serene as compared to the streets outside. We stayed in the cheap rooms which were basic but clean, however some of the suites/bigger rooms looked fantastic. Next time. Staff were great, breakfasts did the trick and all-in-all highly recommended. I don't know why you'd stay anywhere else in KTM.
Excellent location, nice quiet place in the middle of touristy hustle bustle. Loved the way they have maintained it. Bfst buffet was excellent.

Booked for my whole group of 27 as we were there for a charity event. ”
Staff very frendly...even t managers of each department especially Abhinub Shakya...makes us feel at home . The room is reasonably clean compared to other hotels we stayed before in ktm Surrounding of t hotels are very clean...the only disapointment is t cafe closed at 9.30 pm...we find it too early..
After staying at a lot of different establishments over the past 6 weeks the Kathmandu Guest House was a paradise There are diffetent size rooms to suite most people The rooms are clean and well serviced by house keeping staff The food was very good and the coffee was exceptional We found the staff from Management through to ground keepers very friendly and helpful If this is your first trip to Nepal then this is the place for you they handle everything from airport pick ups to tours, flights, money changing ect

Worst value for money ”
Cons Unsupportive management when a problem occurs. Got the wrong room type than ordered, reception manager did me a "favour" when giving the right room. One of the matresses in the room was ruined , the springs were broken. My back still hurts week later. It took full day of many requests only for a anotyer and a worst matress. Very bad experience. Would not recommend any one to deal with or get this room. Or matress. The chair in the room was broken as well. Pros Good location but that is the only thing. Many good hotels which are more comfortable and helpful for half the price .

Exceptional stay and staff”
The staff is a plus and also the hotel is fantastic, great surroundings and facilities. We were upgraded and the staff were always extremely helpful and nice. The location couldn’t be better, in the middle of the backpackers and commercial street. The garden area is amazing. In general the best hotel of our trip around India and Nepal.

Please kindly feel free to contact us for further assistance. Will be waiting to serve you once again. With Regards, Sajani shrestha
Best place to stay in Thamel”
This is my second time staying here, this time with my mum who always dreamed of visiting Nepal for 10 days. When we checked in, we had booked the best room and they gave us this small, dirty old room in which we were quite shocked. When we asked to look at another room they gave us the biggest with a large balcony just over reception which is what we should have gotten in the first place as it is what we booked. The cleaning daily was very clean, location is prime to walk everywhere. DO NOT book from the tour lady, she is absolutely horribly rude and can tell hates all tourists and her job, only ever had issues with her so went to a small tour agency called Brilliant Tours and Travels (yellow sign with yellow and red writing) across the road from Pumpernickel bakery and they were so amazingly helpful, kind and their products were incredible and good priced!! Defnitely go to them. The wait staff at the cafe and restaurant were all so lovely and kind, they made our stay amazing :)
Place like an "Oasis" in the heart of lively Thamel”
The hotel located in the heart of Thamel area where very lively with foreign tourists. The hotel building is not facing to the street but its beautiful garden, which makes the hotel quiet and cozy place. Staff is kind and helpful. I liked the breakfast which has many choices to make from the Nepali to Western. Highly recommended!
When we tried to check in, they provided us with the room that is not exactly as the picture. We booked Deluxe New Wing and they gave us room on the 4th floor but so small. it was more like standard room than deluxe new wing room. So they changed our room to ground floor without view! the only view we get was two big giant AC and wall. Food was so so (nothing special). staff not so friendly, the bed-sheet so old. overall from the outside the hotel looks nice, but not from the inside.
Excellent location right in the heart of Thamel, yet very quiet and peacful. The garden area is beautiful and very relaxing. Our room was rather dated but very clean and quiet. Overall a lovely stay!
Dear Natalie Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased to have you stay in KGH. It will be a pleasure having you stay with us again in KGH next time you visit Kathmandu! Thank you once again and have a wonderful day. Namaste! with regards, Binup Giri

Dear Parmila, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. With Regards, Sajani Shrestha
KGH the legend”
I stayed here for the first time in 2016 when I my trip had a disruption and my agent booked this. That was my 10+ time to Kathmandu but first time in KGH - wonderful vibe and a quiet retreat in the heart of nosiy Thamel. Set back far enough to avoid most of the nightime bar music and related noise. So i returned in 2017 for a business trip and was not disappointed. Lovely gardens
Book a better room!”
Stayed in the annex for 2 nights at the start of my trip and was disappointed, however rooms in the main house are decent. Staff are friendly and helpful and the garden is a lovely break from the streets of Katmandhu.
Beautiful relaxing hotel”
Very relaxing and comfortable hotel after a long and exhausting trek. Good food, good location, and a very nice place to sit in the garden and read all day, or lay in bed and watch tv. Just what I needed.
Location good, first room was bad”
First they put me in some bad quality room, lots of problems. Fan did not work, televisoon not work. After telling these problems they finally change me to room that was ok. Dont know why they put customers who stay longer time, to bad quality rooms. And if you stay one night you get good room right away. Like i did last time.
Stayed for two nights before my trek and three days after. My room was a budget room, you pay for what you get but I found it comfortable. Bed was OK, Bathroom was small with shower very close to the toilet itself but compared to where I’d come from it was great to have a HOT shower. WiFi in room was slow but it worked for me. Would I stay here again, yes maybe in a better room. Location was great close to supermarket and large variety of shops and restaurants. Hotel Restaurant was good, lots of variety on menu and good coffees. Breakfast was good as well.
