This hotel is located in the tourist area for shopping. It has a trip advisor label and a whole lot of other online reviewers. Be warned ... no hot water, no lifts, slow breakfast service. Hard pillow and really very, very basic. No heater in the room too. Expect the rustic.

For $10 a night, you can do better than the Blue Diamond Hotel. Everything in the room is/looks dirty - the sheets, the towels, the bathroom, etc. The surfaces in the bathroom are covered in a coat of grim, the toilet is visibly dirty and and the walls are literally covered in black mold. We asked the front desk to... More

Dear Guest, Namaste!! First of all let me thank you for taking time to write a descriptive review,seems like everything went wrong during your stay. We are really sorry about how you felt and understand your views. I think the point you are trying to make is reflected in your review, but in the process it seems to be exaggerated.... More

Very nice big hotel, a little old, but charming. The service is good and the rooms are well furnished. We stayed there for two days, then again for a little less than a week at the end of our trip and is was perfect. It is in the centre of Kathmandu, everything is near.

Put aside how old and shabby the rooms looked like to affluent travellers, this hotel is located in the heart of Thamel Street. It has all the facilities needed to travellers who are not fussy about their accommodation but only looking for a pit stop before embarking for a greater climbing expedition. Then you can stay here. The plus point... More

The receptionist is quiet good. Overlook Hotel is basic but location is in the center. Room is not amazing as it is too tired to stay. Nothing is that we can satisfy except for water to take shower, room is smell as it is too old.....We dont like and dont recommend this.

Shower and toilets broken in 3 different rooms no hot water in anyone. You must ask the reception for toilet paper. Rooms not cleaned. Towels dirty. Global standing and hospitality of the employees poor. Avoid it

Terrible experience. The room was dirty, the flush is leaking, the bathing area floods, faucets don't work, brown water in the shower. To top all of EXTREMELY RUDE. the walls are like paper so you can hear everything around from miles away, can't put a price on a good nights sleep. If someone paid me i wouldn't go back

Blue Diamond is located 200 yards down a Thamel alleyway lined with souvenir, shawl, clothes and convenience stores. The live music scene is 10 minute's walk away. If you're passing through and want to be close to the action - this could be your place. Despite its location, the hotel itself is tired and not well maintained. I thought its... More
