“VERY NICE, CLEAN AND QUIET HOTEL”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

We have been to Nepal many times and we were tired of being ripped off at the way over priced Kathmandu Guest House.We walked around and found this gem of a hotel.The place was very clean and the reception was very nice.We had free wifi and a tv in a very comfortable room at a real bargain price.We will go back next time for sure.It is now our first choice in Kathmandu.They are open to bargaining for lower price at the desk. Check this place out. Have fun.

Very good hotel with friendly staff. Near to busstation, Durbar Square,shops, restaurants etc.
One of the owners of the hotel (Prem Yogi) is a very good guide for trekkings also. He knows a lot about history, culture, religions etc. He can give you good advise for trips, local restaurants.
The hotel has hot shower and is situated in Thamel ( a lot of shops). The rooms are very clean.
I recommend this hotel for all who want to visit KTM and Nepal.
Speaking English and Japanese.

A bit at the end of Thamel area - probably 3 min walking distance from the central part. This was not a problem at all, once you're in the hotel and after meet the kind, friendly guys at the reception you will not hesitate to stay there. Rooms are clean, comfortable, provided with heavy warm blankets. The feeling for me was like I'm at home. After we left we recommended the hotel to many travellers going to Kathmandu. I can't wait to go back to Kathmandu and I will not even search for another place!
