    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 .

    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.

    Thamel Oasis”

    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.

    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 .

    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.

    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!

    Not 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.

    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

    Enjoyable entertaining and well cared for”

    Attentive staff who were all helpful, courteous and good company.

    This is a good hotel to experience Nepalese hospitality. There were opportunities to take it easy, to experience local sights, to take days out with personal drivers and even arrange alternative overnight stays at other hotels in the KGH group where longer excursions are planned. All rates offered were matched with our budget. The location is great to explore local shops, restaurants and sights ...all that Thamel has to offer, but it is also a tranquil base to shelter overnight or for a few hours away from the excitement of Kathmandu during the day. This is particularly true of the beautiful courtyard garden and the all-day catering it offers. We particularly enjoyed the many well stocked bookshops full of new and second-hand books from all round the world and the literary knowledge of the proprietors. If you wish to buy local souvenirs, beware of the many imports and large profit margins sought. August meant our stay was less crowded but still with warm sunny weather and largely overnight rain. The staff here were all that one could expect, we enjoyed their company as well as their services and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to fellow travellers wishing to experience local courtesy and a variety of good levels of comfort.
