Aria Boutique Hotel is an unique hotel experience! The rooms have unique and interesting decor; paintings of the Himalayas, LED modern chandeliers and stuffed animals on the bed! The room service we ordered was prompt but unfortunately most items listed were not available. Also we read a review that the hotel was being renovated and so phoned the hotel directly...

A very nice hotel with friendly staff. They arranged two tours that were very interesting and rewarding. The hotel is undergoing a renovation which is needed. Our room was worn. The hotel is well situated to experience Kathmandu by walking around and feel the atmosphere and see how people live.

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting many great sights in Kathmandu. It was great to get a bath. The room was a nice size, I watched an English movie on the TV and had breakfast room service that was excellent. There are some great quirky touches in this hotel and all the staff were lovely.

Amazing place with great service and food. Very cozy, clean and so comfortable, that we didn't want to go out. The beds very super comfy - not a usual thing in travelling. Internet was the best as it can be in Kathmandu. Cozy gym, very nice decor... Oh, and the food! Very, very good. Loved every minute over there.
