They will do your laundry, they bring small simple meals to your room with no extra charge, there are a lot of paperback books to read that other travellers leave there...They have a...

not a bad place for its price (i bagrained hard and got 600 ruppee a night), the room was just cleaned before me and windows open wide. Coming back in the evening I didnt realise I got the whole room full of mosquitoes! No protection nets on windows! Annoying buzzling mosquitoes flying over my head and body. The result: i...

This hotel is owned and operated by a family, and their love for the place really shows. Located in the heart of Thamel, Hotel Red Planet is centrally located, and the staff can dispense great advice about things to do in the city. Just a few minutes walk away are amazing breakfast places, great shopping for tourists and travelers, kooky...

Stayed here several times during my trip to Nepal and every time found the staff to be friendly and welcoming and very informative. Rooms were very clean and secure and even though the hotel is right in the middle of Thamel, the rooms were quiet. Recommended!

Stayed here for 5 nights overall. really good location in the centre of thamel, right next to tom and Jerry's pub which is always fun. The staff at the reception desk are so kind and helpful, let us in late when the doors where locked without a problem. Our room had no outside window, just one onto a corridor which...

I just wanted to leave feedback on the Hotel Red Planet in Kathmandu. I've stayed here a number of times during three trips to Nepal over the last seven years and I've always found the place to be good value and the staff friendly. But on this most recent trip the staff went above and beyond the call of duty....

We arrived at the Red Planet Hotel having had a look around some other hotels in the area and found this to be the best value for money. We were not disappointed.

“Corner 2nd floor is roomy and bright, with several beds. My room, 208, has a small terrace and good bathroom and shower with solar-heated warm water. There is also a nice sunny area on roof to lounge in. Again, staff was terrific.”
