The staff is nice but could be more, the room is spacious but during electricity fall, not all light are working and electricity plugs are not working. The breakfast is just ok. We did not have a bad experience but not a good one also. For 10-15$ a night, its ok but not more

I looked at the different websites to book this hotel, and they had different photos of the rooms. Some were older looking, some had a fresh updated look.
I emailed the hotel directly, to ask which photos I should rely on. The reply was that most standard rooms were now the updated version, and we would be given one of these.
Upon check in we were given an "outdated". So before settling in, I went back to the front desk and explained the email, and shortly after we were changed to an updated one, which was much nicer and non-smoking (the former had an ashtray in the room, which was a giveaway to an undesired feature).
Now, even the updated rooms could use an update beyond the paint on the walls, but at least the room was spacious, and the beds comfortable. The toilet in the bathroom in room 204, did not have a working flush, so we just made do with the bucket.
The hot shower was in fact hot and with good water pressure. The corridors and lobby were also clean.
Breakfast in the dark basement was decent, but buffet so get there early to avoid saggy toast.
The service was very nice all around.
Tenki has the potential to be a cute boutique hotel, just need to invest a little more in the updating.

We stayed at Hotel Tenki and found that all the staff were really friendly and were very helpful. The room was good, the bed comfortable and the shower was really hot. The room was cleaned every day and linen changed. The best rooms were the end rooms as they were lighter. The breakfast was worth taking as an inclusion. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: End room on any floor - more light in room

i stayed for 9 nights in a deluxe room in hotel tenki in february 2014. the room was clean and housekeeping insisted on daily cleaning and changed the towels daily. a breakfast buffet (toast, butter/jam, porridge, potatoes, eggs, sausage, banana, apple, juice) was included in the room price. staff was very friendly and helpful. the location is very good because its in the thamel but you can get out of it within 1 minute and then find cheaper shops and restaurants as well. wifi is available in the room.

We visited 27th Dec., 2013. Our tour operator Rahul Sharma booked this hotel for us. This hotel Tenki is located in a busy market area (Thamel Road, Kathmandu) but you can not hear any noise or outside disturbance from inside the hotel. Old hotel but clean enough. Comfortable rooms, hot water (only in morning). From the reception desk I got information booklet about Kathmandu tourist spots. With their help we chalked out our local tour plan earlier.

We stayed only one night in this hotel. Our impression about the restaurant of Tenki was good.
You can also have alternative choices for dinning outside.
