“Malla, Kathmandu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

I recently had an opportunity to stay at Hotel Malla for 3 nights.
the first time, there were problems with the AC in some of the rooms. these were fixed by the time we were back after a gap of about 10 days.
the location is very convenient - close to the central area of Kathmandu and also close to the shopping area of Thamel.
Food was average.

Room Tip: choose the pool facing rooms

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

Stayed here for two nights as part of an organised trek.  The hotel is comfortable, although the decor is slightly dated.  We were given a suite on the second single night stay, which was collosal including a separate room with full dining table, sofas and a second TV.  However, it isn't worth the premium compared with other guest houses in the area (see my review of Khangsar Guest House), and the location could also be better as it is slightly outside of Thamel.

There is an unheated outside pool set within very pretty gardens, and a small spa including jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, but disappointly they charge an additional rate to use these facilities.  Given the room rate (c£60), in a very cheap country, I would have expected these facilities to have been included.

Avoid the Casino on site.  We were looking forward to playing a few hands of Blackjack, but straight after buying some chips there was some sort of raid which meant all the local people suddenly ran off out of the rear exit.  We asked the staff what was happening but they blanked our questions.  We left immediately (though the front exit!) and saw the police outside, but they weren't the slightest bit interested in us.  Not sure what happened but it was very dodgy.

The Malla hotel is located in a large private parc with outside sitting and a swimming pool. The rooms are large and confortable. Nevertheless, the touristy Thamel neighborhood, a shopper's paradise, with many restaurants, is only a five minute walk (along a noisy dusty road).

Very well located to Thamel. Old but clean. Felt very luxurious after a 12 day trek, but in reality very basic, but acceptable. Nothing flash, but was not looking for too much before and after the trek.

This hotel has some good and some not-so-good features. Staff are friendly and helpful, amenities such as the restaurant are convenient (especially the omelet station in the morning), and the grounds are a quiet respite from the din of the city. But the only somewhat decent rooms are on the fourth floor, all others are shabby to say the least. These rooms last saw their better days about 30-40 years ago. Good luck trying to get the lights on (at least those that work), as it's a combination of switches at the room entrance and a line-up of switches on one of the nightstands. If you're looking for a comfortable, relaxing place away from the assault-on-the-senses that is Kathmandu, stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Fourth floor courtyard is the only safe bet.
