Spent nearly 2 months living at the guest house. $10 per night for an on-suite room. Lovely staff, found them very hospitable indeed. Plenty of masala tea, and the kind staff let me use their laptop to send my e-mails back to the UK. The staff were always happy to see you.Will visit them again very soon.

Everytime I come to Kathmandu, my steps just lead directly to Hotel Dolphin. It is because it has perfect location in Thamel, fast wifi, rooftop garden and especially - very kind and caring staff. After staying there 4th or 5th time, I really don’t remember now how many times, this place has just became like my second home in Nepal. My best recommendations to stay there!

The staff Deepak is coperative and helpful. The hotel is located just close to the main road with access to public transport. The rooms were quite old but bearable for a night stay at the price. The hotel had free WiFi and concierge services for tour bookings. Overall value for money.

Good rooms and very welcoming staff. Very affordable as well, in the busy neighbourhood of Thamel. The owner in particular is super nice and very helpful. The hotel is located near many facilities, which adds to the pleasantness of the experience
