“Mixed bag, convenient for airport”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We stayed at the Airport Hotel for 2 nights - one coming into Nepal and the other on the final day.

The first stay was very good - clean room, working and adequate facilties. Good value for money
The second stay was the other extreme - corner room, very noisy, air-con not working, mosquitoes galore!

Restaurant was fine, better food than most places in Nepal.
Staff were very helpful and friendly

Recommend hotel for female travellers, short stays. If you get a corner room, ask for it to be changed immediately!

Location is not convenient if you want to explore the typical tourist places on your own as traffic is a nightmare

Room Tip: Check room for working Air Con and noise levels!

A friend had stayed over for one night a week earlier and contacted the manager to enquire about us taking a room for a few hours as we were arriving in the morning and not leaving until late evening. The manager gave us an excellent deal and was so helpful upon our arrival, giving us advice on sightseeing and helping us with taxis. In fact, all the staff were more than helpful and very friendly. We ate lunch and later a snack in the restaurant and the quality of food was very good. Room amenities were basic but clean, good value for money. Recommended if you are passing through Kathmandu and need somewhere to rest, clean up and spend a few hours.

I was arranged to this hotel for a night in Kathmandu. There's free wifi in the lobby, and you got to pay if you want to have it in your room. Though I paid for it, my corner level 4 room seemed to have very weak wifi reception, it was lagging and disconnected a few times.

My room has a superb view of Kathmandu (colorful buildings) and a mountain! It's only level 4, so I wasn't expecting that. Room is clean, brightly lit, there's adequate furniture and space in the room.

The dinner served in the restaurant was good. My company arranged for it. It was like some indian buffet, but instead of walking to the line to get the food, the staff took the dish to you and if you want it, he will scoop for you onto your plate. Breakfast, however was a little disappointed. I wish they will have more western choices.

Also would like to highlight to one of the staff who took time to accompany the Silkair cabin crews in the night to the town. Didnt manage to take down his name, but thanks for the efforts because your presence was greatly appreciated. We felt safe in your presence despite in a foreign land.

Tips: There's a money-changer right outside the hotel on the left, but be careful and make sure you count your money properly before you leave. However, there's no decent convenience store or provision shop outside. Also, you cant expect clean water from the tap in Kathmandu (anywhere!).

Its not as good as seen or as highlighted in the websites. Even though very closeby to the Airport, the location is bit dissapointing & the neighbourhood of the Hotel is very poorly maintained. The rooms are O.K, but the tap water for mouth wash & shower was very offensive & very unhygeinic. The breakfast was average but the food availability in their restaurant was unexpectedly good!. so its best for urgent transit stay & for those keen on visiting lord pashupathinath temple, which is in a walking distance.

Room Tip: travellers better chose bigger triple rooms/ family rooms for more space & good interiors.

The Hotel is situated just opposite to the Airport. The food is nice. Room service is very good. The rooms are very clean and looks trendy.I have stayed in this hotel for about 4 times . Will repeat. All the staffs are very friendly and generous.Chicken Momo's here are very good. You can access the internet in the Lobby for free. It will be chargeble if you wanna use it in your room.

Room Tip: Choose for Corner Rooms

When I think of an airport hotel, impersonal comes to mind. But not in Kathmandu.
I was transiting to and from Bhutan and stayed here both times. Not only was it a minute from the airport it was also close to some important places worth visiting: Pashupatinaath temple (3 mins in a taxi), and Patan (10-15 mins by taxi), which is great for site seeing and shopping.

The menu has much to chose from and if there is nothing that you find you can always ask and they will do their best to accommodate your palate.

I found all the staff friendly, approachable and front of house, especially, made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I need. I had a couple of hurdles to cross and they were all solved for me by them. Not only did they book taxis for me and advise me on places to visit, I even got an airport escort.

I will definitely stay there again.
