The rooms have been recently refurbished,and are very comfortable with the De Luxe rooms having fridges, kettles, glasses etc, but, the price remains very reasonable. There are also inexpensive rooms across the lane. The staff are friendly and help and advice is always available, with the kind owner being a fund of information about Kathmandu and Nepal. I have stayed...

Ok, you will survive. But there are better options for this pricerange. Linnen was not completely spotless (stains), floors in rooms could do with a makeover, bathroom was not comfortable: no hot shower (only a cold shower and one warm tap). You will slide though the shower for at least one day, beacause shower-water runs all over the floor (use...

This is an overpriced, badly managed hotel. You pay for internet in the room, but you don't get it, except intermittently and even then the connection speed is pathetic. They blame it on the ISP, but the internet café 20 metres down the street has no problems whatsoever. You would think that US$40 per night would include electricity round-the-clock. But...

I actually stayed in the Excelsior two times, before and after a 19 day trek. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of Thamel, convenient to shopping, eating, transportation and tourist attractions. The staff was outstanding. They allowed me to store my excess luggage while on the trek and saved my room for my return. They followed up promptly...

My friend and I stayed at the Excelsior on the budget side of the road. The rooms where cheap. There was a quiet courtyard upstairs that no one was ever in and gave us a quiet place to chill out. There was no restaurant or any real communal space but seeing that it is smack bang in central Thamel it...

Hotel Excelsior is a really great, clean and cozy hotel to stay in. Although the lobby area was a little cold in the winter, in the rooms there are heaters which really helped. The Italian food at the restaurant was delicious and different from other restaurants around. At night the loud bollywood music is a little annoying but you get...

“Ask for a room on the front side of the hotel. The rooms on the backside tend to hear noise from the bar until 11pm. I use earplugs and that also takes care of it”

“Try asking for a room on the lower levels as the stairs to the top are tiring, especially with big rucksacks. Pretty average wifi, I suggest nearby restaurants.”
