I have been to hundreds of hotel but if I have to prepare a list of 'fake' Ines this hotel would have a good chance to be included. As a building and rooms and interiors, it's a well done and very good. However, they apparently seems to cater to Europeans only. I can't comprehend why? The moment I arrived, the... More

Kathmandu is not known for comfort, it is a busy dusty noisy and cramped place but this hotel is a welcome bit of tranquility in the chaos. Beautiful gardens, good service, reasonable food (by Nepalese standards) and good rooms make this a reliable place to stay. Always professional and capable, the staff here know Nepal well.

I have stayed at the KGH four times in recent years and am booked in again in December and January. In the fascinating mayhem that is Kathmandu this hotel is an oasis that, literally, caters for all. There are budget rooms and luxury rooms besides a restaurant that serves both Nepali and international cuisine. You can trust the guides and... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. We made friends with a few of the people there, ate their restaurant almost every night and enjoy the fire they put on. It's hard to find a Hotel with a courtyard to chill out with a beer and Kathmandu guest house has just that.

I stayed here at the start and end of an intrepid trip to Everest base camp. While the rooms are not large they are perfectly adequate after days staying in teahouses. The garden is a quiet oasis in the middle of Thamel however the service for drinks was extremely poor.

Just spent 2 nights in the KGH for a very reasonable price by booking first online directly with KGH. We should have asked for a garden view room as these seem to be the best choice. Our room was adequate but very noisy from 4 am on as there was around 40 - 50 pigeons nesting on a ledge outside... More

The Kathmandu Guest House is the perfect place to stay while visiting the city. Unfortunately was only able to stay there one night but, would definitely stay there next time I come to Kathmandu. There is great shopping just outside the hotel, the food is excellent and the staff can help you plan your trip anywhere in Nepal.

We stayed here and the stay was nice. Rooms are well planned. Staff is really really very nice. Service is fast and satisfying. Wi-Fi is there but sometimes it gives you pain. It takes you away from noise.
