This hotel is located in the Thamel area in Kathmandu, a good place for backpackers, nightlife and restaurants. From that point of view the hotel is really good located, the staff is very friendly and helpful but be careful with the rooms you are staying in!!
Those located at the back of the hotel are extremely noisy as there are some constructions going one, so you will not have a proper sleep. Try to get a room facing the terraces as it might be more calm.
The hotel offers airport pick up and drop off services.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for over a week and it was a great home base. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is cozy, clean and has nice furniture. There are hot showers with good pressure. We lost electricity fairly often but usually not for longer than an hour. We also got a free pickup from the airport. I highly recommend this hotel. My one gripe is that it is quite noisy outside in the morning, however, it will likely be that way staying anywhere in the Thamel area.

A nice, clean, comfortable and great located hotel with good beds, descent wifi, great balcony's, hot water and a very helpful and friendly staff.

They provide airport pickup, breakfast, nice (day) trips or biking, and hiking trips via Funny Nepal Treks & Expedition. Together they make a great team to give you a unforgettable stay in Nepal.

Hotel Karma is a nice and quiet place in the busy Thamel area in Kathmandu. It is centrally located and the staff is really helpful and friendly. The provided airport pick-up service was good and at any time you could arrange a taxi at the hotel. It was great to have breakfast at the small terrace in the sun :-) Next time in Nepal we will surely go back again to Karma!

Cheap hotel with very very good facilities. It was really good hotel, a very nice staff, they are very kind to, they help us in so many things to make it easier to traveling in Kathmandu. Just say what you need, they will done it for you. They provide you with a taxi and picked up from the airport free. Also there is wi-fi in every floor and 1 computer in lobby, which will help you to find information to traveling in Nepal or to contact friends/family in your country. In front of the hotel you have the possibility to get money from a ATM. This hotel is situaded in the heart of the city. I will always choose this hotel, if I ever come back again to Kathmandu.

This building, the decor and furnishings are all a bit dated and you may feel you've travelled back in time, however the rooms are spacious, airy and bright.
The helpfulness and enthusiasm of the staff is the most welcome thing. With hot water and decent wifi and prime location it's a good choice for Kathmandu.
