The location of the hotel is very strategically located in the heart of Thamel with lotsa eateries and souvenir shops. The room is very clean and heater was on the whole night that added comfort to the cold winter.

The hotel is average. You need to go to 6th floor for breakfast which is not inclusive of your room tariff. 👎 They got free Wi- Fi 👍 Parking facility 👍 Bathroom are clean but compact. These ppl dont provide us with soap and other bathroom amenities.👎 So ok ok place.

We arrived into Hotel Backyard direct from the Airport and were immediately made welcome by the friendly staff.

We ate on the rooftop terrace for breakfast...

Great place in the centre of Thamel. Nice rooms and service. Great owner who was helpful in guiding is places to visit. Not a place to have food though. All in all it was a very cost saving place. Enjoyed alot and trust worthy people had left our luggages with them for a day as well. Will visit again.

When we first arrived in Kathmandu, they picked us up from the airport (although our flight was delayed) and we were greeted by a lovely man (who works mostly at reception). Unfortunately I don't know his name, but he is always around :) Some people mentioned below that the staff pushes you to tours, I did not have that experience....
