“Just Fine place to spend a few days”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

I stayed in this hotel for 2 days. The room numbering is confusing and its not easy to locate your room back. Its only after you have taken wrong stairs, walked here and there, that you would find your room. Since i slept alone on this special bed meant for doubles, I had back ache in the morning. Anyways you just need to step outside the hotel to get all kinds of body aches relieved. The winter mornings in Kathmandu is very pleasant and having breakfast on roof top basking on the sun, was quite an experience.

Room Tip: Good Rooms in the hotel have been given names of mountains instead of being numbered.

We were originally booked in Tibet Guest House for two stays, but as we were quite unhappy there, we asked around and booked this hotel for our stay after trekking. Let me get it straight: Kathmandu Resort Hotel was much better, at least one category higher. But…

First of all I can’t relate to the reviews stating this hotel were new in 2010, three of the four rooms I’ve seen looked a bit dated, actually quite ready to be refurbished.

We were shown the room called Annapurna, which we noted on the prepayment form (USD 77 per night including all charges). They’ve kept our luggage not needed on the mountain. As we came back ten days later we were told that Annapurna was taken, but we’d get Mt. Everest, same-same. Well Mt. Everest was just opposite Annapurna but looked nothing like it. The main difference might have been, that Annapurna had hardwood flooring while Mt. Everest had carpet… which was just dirty. As were the towels and the bathroom carpet (latter would cost maybe USD 5 to replace). Not that they weren’t cleaned the day before, but they were dated with all those stains and shoe marks, which just doesn’t come out by normal vacuuming. They must have had some leakage in the water pipes in the wall between the bathroom and the room itself, which they have fixed, but the wall on the room’s side wasn’t repainted.

So I went down to front desk complaining, but they said they wouldn’t have any other room for the night, we’ll have another one in the morning. I did however manage to get two clean towels.

On the next morning then I met other staff at the front desk, who seemed to know that I’ve complained. They told me that there was only one check-out, but then eventually showed me two rooms. One had quite the same status as Mt. Everest, the other one on the top floor however looked very new, clean and welcoming. This was actually an apartment with kitchen, sitting area and huge bedroom (the latter two not separated). Of course I wanted to have that one. Back at front desk they said it would cost more, which I declined saying that I’d be satisfied with Annapurna, don’t need the kitchen (didn’t use it then) or the huge LCD TV (didn’t even switch it on then). All I needed was a clean room. After trying to get a higher rent a few more times they’ve finally given me the key, so we’ve moved.

Now the GOOD:
Excellent location, in a kind of shopping complex in the middle of Thamel, still quiet, because off the main streets. A/C was working perfectly (in both rooms), we used it to heat on cool December evenings and mornings. Also we received a hairdryer for one evening/night (which was not possible at any other of our Nepali accommodations). There was hot water anytime we wanted it (in both rooms) – also not always the case in Nepal.

Breakfast was included in the rate, so on the first morning we went to the "restaurant". Tables were dirty, kitchen area looked very unwelcoming, some three or four guys were hangin’ around, but only one of them cared to offer the guest before us to make eggs, pancakes or toast. We decided to only have some tea. But then the hot water was out, so we just left and never came back. There are many cafes and bakeries within two minutes walk.

All in all they’ve managed to provide the service we’ve wanted, managed to solve our problems and showed quite some flexibility, therefore I can recommend this place, just make sure you check the room you want. Wouldn’t consider having a meal there however.

the 1st night i stayed here, i kinda like it. did some exploring of the hotel, and it's like a maze! i had a room on the 4th floor, and it was quiet even though climbing up and down the stairs can be quite exhausting!

it's also located in touristy thamel, which is really convenient when shopping for souvenirs and also when looking for food!

but the 2nd night i stayed (after coming back to kathmandu from pokhara), i was given a room on the 1st floor, with a window looking directly down to the streets below. it was very noisy at night! also, there were a group of korean tourists on my same floor, and they were running back and forth to each other's room, slamming the doors and speaking loudly in the corridors!

and in the morning, i had wanted to sleep in for a bit, but there were loud quarreling in the corridors! when i opened the door, i saw the front desk guy talking loudly to another lady (not sure if she's an employee too). i made a face at him and gestured for them to pipe down. the guy said, "ok, ok" (no, he didn't even apologize) but continued talking to the lady!

overall, the hotel is decent enough and clean enough, though the water from the taps are rather icky, but that is a problem of the whole city!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the higher floors, and not facing the street

We stayed in a deluxe room a night before our trek and another night after we returned from Lukla. We had three rooms - all deluxe, and the condition of the room really depended on what you are given. Overall, it was clean and well maintained for a 3-star hotel in Thamel area. The location is quite an easy walk to Thamel's busy restaurant & shopping streets. Hotel staff were helpful, they kept our bags safely in their baggage room when we did our 6-day trek. Breakfast was decent enough and we were satisfied with their selection of hot food.

I stayed for 1 night in Kathmandu resort hotel in December with a friend of mine from UK. The hotel is in good location and the prices are reasonable. The hotel is near Kathmandu Guest House in Mandala Street. A little bit confusing to find the main reception but overall the hotel is a good choice for budget travelers.
