We stay at the Soaltee for 4 days. Its a very nice hotel with spacious rooms and huge garden. The building is a bit old but well-kept, although personally I think renovation of the rooms are needed if it needs to compete with the Hyatt. The location is nice and quiet, but quite far away from the busy parts of the city, so if you want to eat outside you'll need to go by car. The food from the various restaurants are acceptable though - the Chinese restaurant is especially good. While we were there the city has a shortage of electricity supply and the hotel's generators would kick in every few hours. The rooms facing the back yard where the generators were could get a bit noisy.

WiFi are charged at around USD20 per day, if you don't need a lot of data download you can get a pre-paid phone card if you have a GSM smart phone.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the front garden!

The hotel has already embarked on a major renovation for both the front and back of the house to enhance the guest experience. In the first phase, already underway we shall have a new coffee shop operational by mid September. In the later stages of the renovation we shall be doing the Himalayan Wing rooms, Conference facilities and the lobby.

Look forward to welcoming you back to Soaltee Crowne Plaza Kathmandu on your next visit to Nepal.

The Casino Nepal housed in the hotel premises is going through some severe labour issues and hence is not operating to minimum acceptable standards. Till this issue is resolved we have made alternative arrangements at another casino for all our guests along with transportation facilities.

Look forward to welcoming you back to Soaltee Crowne Plaza Kathmandu on your next visit to Nepal.

We finally booked this hotel for our 4 day stay in Kathmandu after going back and forth between this and the Hyatt. We heard Hyatt is a little further from the main city thus decided to go with the Soaltee.

Let me start with the positives. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel is close to Thamel (the main tourist market) and the overall stay was very comfortable.

The overall property though seemed to be slightly unkempt, and definitely not 5-star variety. We opted for the club room, which is supposed to be one of the best in the hotel but the room was very small! The Casino Nepal was open for a couple of hours in the night and even then only 2 tables were running.

A nice basic five star hotel. Nothing too personal but ok and the hotel has nice grounds in the complex. I enjoyed the terrace at the main entrance which was a nice place to have a drink after a tiring day. Staff was nice and polite. Room was clean and somewhat large.

Location has its pros and cons. The hotel is located on the other side of the town from the basic tourist area of Thamel. I noticed I was the only westerner walking around in that neighborhood so there were no sellers and whatnots around but also only a few shops or places to eat. It was more quiet and nicer than the buzzing Thamel and it seemed more like the real Kathmandu.

On the other hand you have to use the taxi to get around, it's really slow during rush hour and not too many of them know this hotel. Had a nice adventure with the cabby when we got lost in a storm.

A good stay but you can get a nice hotel closer to the action too.
