Breakfast is included but we left...

Hotel Nepalaya was the best choice in Thamel. The food at the rooftop restaurant was great, the rooms were clean, and the shower was hot (very important). Recommended for anyone who is thinking of traveling to Kathmandu.

This is my number one choice for vacation in Kathmandu. Love authentic cuisine, nice rooftop views, clean rooms and friendly people at reception. Also it is very close to all major sights in the city. I recommend everyone to explore this hidden jem!

While in Kathmandu I always choose to stay in this hotel. Located in the very heart of city in a nice neighborhood around a corner. During a dinner I enjoyed a 360 view from a rooftop. Hotel Nepalaya boasts nice and spacious rooms, friendly staff. This is all I need for a comfortable vacation.

My family and I stayed at Hotel Nepalaya in December 2016. What an amazing way to begin and cap our trip to Nepal. The owner of the hotel, DB, greeted us personally. The rooms are large and airy. And the rooftop terrace is to die for with sweeping views of Kathmandu and the majestic Himalayas in the background. The food...

Amazing panoramic view of Kathmandu on the rooftop where you can enjoy the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner ! Nice position, just 10sec from the main street of Thamel. Rooms are basic but nice and clean. I recommend this hotel.

I really surprised the setup was fantastic but the bellman was asking some nonsense questions I feel he is waiting for tip. The Resturant on roof fantastic and the foods are mouthwatering.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sincerely warm welcome from Hotel Nepalaya…where hospitality comes from the heart…It’s a special Peace down here & your Environment Friendly Stay will be just like it is at home…We are known to be the best rated hotel in Kathmandu…& you’ve got to live here to know it…Hotel Nepalaya is known for its warm hospitality, & we are right in the heart of the Thamel city. The hotel offers fantastic valley views from its ‘temple of heaven’ rooftop restaurant. The Langtang, Ganesh Himal and Dorjelakpa mountain views from our rooftop is just amazing. You will find Rickshaws and taxi stands just a stone’s throw from our hotel, which is a 4 min walking distance to the major shopping areas, restaurants & bars of sizzling Thamel, & hardly 7 kilometers to get to get to the airports and only 3 kilometers to the bus stands. You will enjoy a wonderful peace of mind once you get in into the hotel as thamel is always a crowded, noisy and hustling place for tourists.Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal, a tiny Himalayan landlocked Country in Asia which offers possibilities of vibrant cultures and its smiling people. Kathmandu is the only city connected by air to the major international towns scattered all over Nepal. Whether you are looking for rich culture and people, history, a Himalayan adventure getaway for walking, trekking, climbing, white water rafting, elephant safari to the One Horn Rhino & Bengal Tiger in natural parks and outdoor holidays in the broadest sense of the word... Nepal has it all! You don’t need to go anywhere else.The Hotel Nepalaya on the other hand is a hotel of Nepal’s cultural landscapes. Here you will find smiling welcoming staff that enjoys their work & a sunny garden for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, 24 hour power backup, FREE WIFI and computers, 24 hours security, & rooms well furnished with modern amenities, and our staff is happy to provide you with all the information you need to enjoy your stay in Kathmandu! ... more   less
