An oasis of calm just yards from the hustle and bustle of Thamel's busy streets! This boutique style hotel/property has good size rooms and facilities and a very high level of customer service at a great price. I stayed here for 6 nights in total before and after a trek to Mt. Everest ABC in Tibet organised by Makalu Adventure,... More

Perfect location, being on my own I felt very safe. Rooms are so clean and beds comfortable. Even though the power goes out sometimes and the water is cold sometimes, who cares. I had a wonderful stay and I want to come back but its hard to get a room here. If your expectations are tooooo high, lower them and... More

OK, if you are going to Thamel, make sure you know what to expect. The streets are cramped, noisy and dangerous. This hotel is OK, but only 2 star at most by Western standards. The service was good, they try hard, but the regular power cuts, lack of constant hot water, crap shower heads, noisy barking feral dogs at night... More

Thamel Eco Resort is a basic tourist hotel with most of the services you would expect. The restaurant serves excellent meals at good prices. The rooms are somewhat basic, but as many others would point out ... this is Nepal and you need to manage your expectations a bit. However, what set this establishment apart for me was the excellent... More

This hotel is set back from the hustle and bustle of Thamel. It is quiet and peaceful. You can hear roosters crow at sunrise, which is nice. Has a lovely courtyard to sit and have a beer or two. Basic but adequate breakfast- pretty fancy by Nepalese standards. All of the staff were lovely. Overall, a very comfortable and enjoyable... More

We recently stayed at the Eco Resort before and after a trek.. Our second visit to the hotel in the past year. It's clean and comfortable.. Try to get a deluxe room because that will make all the difference between a good stay and an average one. It has a nice courtyard garden and bar area to relax in. Beware... More

We stayed at Thamel Eco Resort in a Deluxe Double and were very happy with the room and service by the staff. We initially had a standard room on the 1st floor, which we found noisy as it was outside the restaurant/bar seating area.
