“Good Location”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

We stayed here on 2 occasions, the rooms are nothing special & the beds are not very comfy.
At night you have dogs barking all night which makes it hard to sleep. Management of this place leaves alot to be desired, as they seem to tell you anything & are not the most friendly bunch to deal with. When we were leaving a gentleman had some of his laundry go missing & they simply did not care, he had to go without it as he had a plane to catch. The food however was good & location OK, but I think for the money you will find far better options else where. Wifi was OK as well.

Room Tip: Go Deluxe in the top floors.

Pros: the best point about this hotel is location. it's in Thamel area and it's not. so you have a 5 mins walking distance to Thamel tourist area in Kathmandu but you are far from dogs barking, motorcycles and cars horn and noise and people and drunks scream. it has a nice garden that you can eat your dinner or breakfast there. the quality and taste of food is really nice. WiFi signal strength is also good in Nepali standard

Cons: rooms and bath can be cleaner than this. we didn't need A/C, although it was out of order too. the water valves were very old. the bathroom was not shiny and it need a re-constrcution

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are the best

I had a nice stay at the hotel blue horizon.

I started in a delux room which was fine but then downgraded to a cheaper room which was also fine but had fewer windows, a little more noise, and harder beds. The rooms seem normal clean for Nepal (as in serviceable but not great, occasion stains and burn marks). Bathroom worked well--good fixtures and warm water.

Beds in the economy room were hard even for me, who likes a hard bed! The lock othe first room I had was a joke, but since the room was up on a high floor I Didnt worry bout it much. Had some mosquitoes in the rom....not sure where they came from!

Having breakfast in the gardener on the roof is great, and the Internet connection was strong and reliable. Reliable electricity too and easy airport pick up.

Bonus: neighbors with Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) where you can get trekking advice, find travel partners, and REFILL YOUR WATER BOTTLE! For 10 rupees and keep all that plastic out of the landfill. Also, a very nice little restaurant just down the same quiet side street had great food and atmosphere.

Overall a nice stay and about what I expected but above are the specific ups and downs.

My wife and I had stayed at Hotel blue horizon about 5 nights before head to Tamang heritage trail trek. It was our perfect choice. We felt like our home town. Everyone so, friendly and helpful which made us very glad to be here. The location made us happy and people are lovely, Food was great and we had had our foods here during our stay. The garden made us relaxing and using laptop on the garden was pleasure. Initially we had planned for Annapurna trek but Mr. Tika Regmi of Adventure Mountain explore Treks suggested us to do special heritage trail through Tamang village. We were lucky to find him. It was very special trek. We got in touched directly with locals and had local foods which were awesome. Walking was a bit tiring but views and locals gave up relax after walking. Thanks go to Rishi and Tika who made our trek very special.

Room Tip: Every thing is very good so no onw needs to worried about any thing
