      The location of this hotel is really in the middle of Thamel area. You just need to go outside and decide right or left and you will see all those souvenir stores. They also provide clean room with good facility as well as the airport transfer.

      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.

      Lousy booking service and I was taken down the road to another hotel!”
      I booked the royal penguin. I actually tried to cancel my booking due to an unforseen circumstance and the management refused even though I provided 24hr plus notice. When I arrived, I was told they had cancelled my booking and therefore I would have to stay at their sister hotel down the road. The hotel I was given was called the Aria, where the wifi was weak. I would have preferred a refund.

Kindly be informed that your booking was a non-refundable booking so we could not cancel it from our side. Nevertheless, even after you informed us about cancelling your booking, we booked you a room in our sister concern- Aria Boutique Hotel.

      NOT a family hotel”
      This place has such high reviews so we were expecting a bit more. The suite we booked looks like it has been "used" quite well in the past for who knows what. There are questionable door signs that seem to ask for other "services" which as a family with small kids...we wouldn't need. So, if you are a single guy, maybe. A family with kids no. BUT, I have to admit the breakfast was amazing. Location in Thamel is also ideal

      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)
