Very comfortable place”

quiet room, 24/7 electricity, fast Internet

I had very good experience in Royal Penguin Boutique Hotel during my last trip to Kathmandu. So when I found out that new hotel of Penguin branch have opened, I booked it. This new Penguin is even more luxury and comfortable then the first one. I agree with all comments here - perfect design, very comfortable bed and pillows, tasty food, polite staff, relaxing SPA, nice lift. As for me I liked the best that the room was very quiet. The busyness from outside hardly entered inside. Good Internet speed and 24/7 electricity are very important for me as well. I enjoyed my stay there.

Good location great staff, Perfect !!”

I have stayed in many hotels in Kathmandu and from all of experiences, I have always found this Penguin Boutique hotel best among all. This time I was been upgraded to Pent House and it was awesome. All rooms of Penguin Boutique hotels are very good and comfortable. The shower, the a/c, the free wifi, services, the cleanliness, the warm welcome, the hospitality, foods and the location is what brings me back often to this hotel. Thank you Mr Bishal & Mr Pancha for such a nice hospitality, as i have reviewed in TripAdvisor as well, your team is awesome. I will definitely stay in Penguin again & again whenever I will visit Kathmandu. Highly recommended. Bipin Gurung (pokhara)

Surprised to find such a nice hotel in Thamel”

Well-trained, friendly staff; cleanliness of rooms and hotel, good breakfast choices (luckily no buffet) with breakfast at any time of the day; perfect location for those who enjoy shopping in Thamel

As our original booking at some other hotel was canceled by Agoda at short notice we had to quickly book something else (while already on the way to the airport. Agoda suggested some options and one was the new Royal Penguin. We were pleasantly surprised as we found a hotel in the heart of Thamel with well-trained and very friendly staff, with with well-kept rooms (ok, the interiour design of rooms and public areas is a bit quirky but it is fun). For those who normally have to rush to beat the breakfast service deadline - this hotel is for you as it serves breakfast at any time of the day. and it offers good breakfast choices (luckily no buffet; the coffee choice could be iffy brew, though, not instant coffee). The hotel is perfectly located for those who enjoy shopping in Thamel. When you book make sure you get the new Royal Penguin, the old one, which is close by, has no lift (unless you don't mind the exercise). Although the hotel is brand new (opened in March 2014) it seems to be in high demand already. We will definitely book this hotel again.

Fantastic experience”

clean and comfortable, helpful staff, perfect room facilities

Room have all facilities, like mini-bar, complementary tea and coffee set, electric kettle etc. It looks admirable with all decorations, natural green plants and different types of lights. Room service very fast, and all staff smiley and polite. Perfect location in the center of Thamel, a lot of shops nearly, but room's windows are soundproof and I sleep in silence. Hotel guests can use sauna in Spa for free, and a gym in another Royal Penguin Hotel (it's near) also free of charges. In a restaurant I had a big toy: a panda, who sat with me when I had breakfast:) I'll definitely stay again in this place, and recommend it for all.

Best in Kathmandu in value for money”

excellent rooms, staff, restaurant

It was my second stay in Royal Penguin-2 and I will stay here again on my next trips to Nepal. I’d say the hotel is really the best one in Kathmandu - you get more comfort than in some 5-star hotels here and prices are very reasonable. Nice new rooms with very comfortable bed and all necessities, staff always ready to help, and their restaurant is… wow, you just must see it for yourself.

clever hotel with a sense of humor!”

fun/funny touches (how often can u say a hotel exhibits a sense of humor?), air/hot water/toilet, location

We enjoyed the clever design touches, the blue lights, the stuffed animal on each bed, the design of the restaurant (to look like a white cave with little stuffed animals in the niches), the toast served in miniature shopping baskets, the ability to step out front and be immersed in Thamel shopping and attractions and congestion, then return to the hotel quiet. I thought the quality of the breakfast mediocre compared to the other hotel we stayed in Kathmandu but this one had the intense city experience. Royal Penguin is fun.

Comfortable and slightly crazy - will be back for sure”

Really special place, with some idiosyncratic ideas and crazy, creative touches in everything from the names of the rooms to the decor and offers available to guests (china-smashing or sight seeing with a cuddly toy, along with painting trips or sessions with Tibetan translators), along with a comfortable and professional experience. Lovely staff who go out of their way to help, wonderful ayurvedic massage and a range of treatments in the spa, free use of the sauna for guests anytime, good food in the 24 hour restaurant, and a good location in Thamel that also managed to be quiet. I will definitely be back and recommend the place to anyone I know who is going to Kathmandu.

European standarts in Kathmandu”

superb sleeping, great staff, tasty food

It’s the first hotel in Kathmandu to meet european standarts. I felt very comfortble in my room with all the decoration, thought-out details, perfect lightning (which is unusual for Nepal in general). Friendly and attentive staff made me feel like home. For me the highlight was a super-comfortable bed. I could sleep like this the whole day. The hotel has an elevator, a smoking room. So despite the fact that all hotel is non-smocking, my friend could smoke in that room. The heating in the hotel is working good, which is also new for my previous times in Ktm. I recommend aroma bath for beter relaxing – it was great. It is convenient that they have different kinds of massage, hair salon, sauna, steam room, beauty rooms and aroma bath – all this in their Spa. I would defenetly come back for a longer period of time.

Good clean stay with a jet-back to childhood! ”

There's nothing quite like entering a hotel room to find an array of plush toys like tigers, penguins or bears! Based around the idea of an igloo, this unique 'retro' designed hotel will have your mind perplexed about the design elements, all in the comfort of well air conditioned rooms, and a 5-10 minute wait for your hot water to arrive in the shower. While the check-in staff aren't overly helpful and their english lacks a little, you will eventually get checked in, and receive help with your luggage. Just try not to ask anything too complicated, and don't expect your room service to be their fast if you're ordering outside normal hours. It took half an hour for two decafe coffee's to arrive; only to find out later from restaurant staff that they don't have decafe on the menu! Having stayed at this hotel numerous times in the past, it is a comfortable option, close to all things locally 'Thamel' and a 30 minute walk to the Monkey Temple - just what we wanted pre-ABC.

Class plus Fun”

We love the Royal Penguin Hotel! We have stayed here several times and love it more and more. The Staff is suburb. The food is great, especially after a day of travel, it is nice to be able to get this quality of food at your hotel! One piece of advice for the management, you have let dust gather in the ice cave and adjacent dining area. Clean it, at least, once a month to keep your reputation in tact. We'll be back! Thanks for the fun, The Stewart crew.

Amazing staying”

Great comfort, Design, Friendly staff

It's a newly opened hotel, everything is new and clean. My room was well equipped and very comfy. I had an enjoyable stay. It's really amaizing design in the hotel, it's a mix of modern design and special ancients things, like mandala and sculpture. So beauty! My next stay in Kathmandu will be in Penguin for sure.

Nice hotel and good location”

The hotel is located in the Thamel area. It is very easy to go for shopping, pubs, restaurant. And, the staff are friendly and helpful. I only want to complain for the picking up transfer service. The pick up service didn't have any NAME PLATE card for listing customer name and hotel name. I need to walking and speak for 'ROYAL penguin hotel' . Why don't have a NAME CARD plate with HOTEL name for picking up? That's what i want to complain. the facilities mark was deducted by this service. IT is so easy for making a name card, don't save this paper card money.

Genuine Service”

location, staffs

This newly opened hotel is in the heart of Thamel, the shopping & dining district, which makes it very convenient. Upon arrival, while waiting for the room, we were given glasses of juice. We were then led to our room and it was really nice, spacious and modern with cute stuffed toys placed on top of each beds. Wifi and breakfast are both complimentary and the good thing about the breakfast is you don't need to follow a specific time and you can have it anytime you want. The restaurant serves international cuisine and has a great selection of Illy coffee and Baskin Robins ice cream and they also have 24 hour room service. This hotel is equipped with a generator which is quite important since there's a power outage everyday. We arranged a 2 way car transfer to Pokhara and the only problem we had was the car broke down when we were already in the Pokhara and we needed to take a cab to our other hotel which was a bit scary since it's already at night. Good thing we already booked a plane back to Kathmandu the next day as the car needed to be repaired. I would like to commend Anil, our driver took care of the whole situation and he was very professional and nice. But then the car should've been checked before leaving the city since it was a very long drive (6-7 hours). The hotel and restaurant staffs alike are very nice and accommodating and they spoke fluent English and they are always willing to go an extra mile to help you with any concerns. Chef Prem was also very enthusiastic and friendly. Overall, it was a very memorable trip to Nepal, and I would't hesitate to go back to this hotel in the near future. Highly recommended!

Very different”

Unique design, special attention and convenient location.

This hotel is very different from other hotels. It is truly a boutique hotel as the design is very unique in the rooms and restaurant. The soft toy is such a welcome. Overall, the location, staff and facilities is very good. They are out to please. I would certainly recommend a stay in this hotel. The location is not in the middle of Thamel but is not far to walk.

rooms super-comfortable, helpful staff, the restaurant

If I need one word to characterize my stay - I would say WOW. I didn’t expect to find a hotel like this in Thamel, will definitely stay again. It’s just opened, so it’s very new, bright, shiny and ideally clean. Very comfortable rooms, feels more like at home, not a hotel, much attention paid to details. The restaurant… you need to see that! The photos don’t give full impression. They put real cristals in walls! Eating my dinner (which was also good) I couldn’t help thinking I got into a treasure cave from some dreams.
