“Very handy for the airport”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

We chose this hotel for its proximity to the international airport as we had an early morning departure. You could easily walk to the international terminal with your luggage. The hotel appearance was typical of what you would find close to an airport, but the staff were very friendly and accomodating. A buffet breakfast was included with our room, but since we were leaving earlier, the restaurant staff packed us 'box' breakfasts of muffins and fruit to take with us. The room was a good size, quiet, with a very comfortable bed and large bathroom. The free hotel WIFI was unbearably slow, so we ended up paying $7 for a 24 hour voucher to get regular speed WIFI in our room. We would recommend this hotel only if you need to be close to the airport - otherwise there are more varied and eclectic choices across the city in Thamel.

I choose this hotel since its located within walking distance from Airport. I had to take Mountain flight so I had to be in the airport at 0530 in morning.
Even from checking in, already a problem. The staff couldn't found my reservation, and I had to argue for the wifi access which is complimentary in my paid reservation.
The internet is very very painfully slow.
Would not stay here again, there are better options in Kathmandu for sure

There was always a problem to find a decent place to stay near to International airport. But The Airport hotel fulfill this requirement of travelers who have early/late arrival/departure flight. Its a decent place to spend night and service is good as well.

We were put up here for 3 days and found the stay to be quite pleasant. The staff was very courteous and were always eager to help. The rooms were clean and the service quite pleasant. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Kathmandu.

It is right in front of the Airport entrance gate! Very convenient! Very close to Pashupatinath temple, this is excellent part. However to visit rest of the city you end up paying taxi charges, which is little expensive there. Food is average, there is no casino. For casino you need to look for other hotel. Nice place for short stay with the family

Excellent western standard hotel that is an easy walk from the airport, both domestic and international terminals. If you look at photos of the hotel you will be able to spot it from the footpath at the Airport and walk straight there. It is the only modern building in sight.

As the airport is virtually in town, and Kathmandu is not that big, you are not far away from anywhere.

It is comparitively expensive but has one advantage over any other hotel in this most confusing of cities. Any cab driver in town will be able to find it easily, just ask "How much to the airport?" Once you've settled on a price they will be able to take you straight there.

Although I also stayed elsewhere this is the place I would recommend to others. The staff are excellent.

This is the closest you can stay to the only international airport in Nepal. The staffs are helpful and accommodating. The standard rooms are on the smaller side as one would expect from a transit hotel but are comfortable and provided with essentials. The air conditioning system is very good. Buffet breakfast is included and the selection offered is ok.

Room Tip: If you want a good view of the area or the airport, ask for the rooms on the top floor.
