Reviewed 8 August 2014

Only stayed here for one night but the staff were quite pleasant. The shuttle from the airport was already there when i landed which was reassuring considering i arrived quite late in the evening. Breakfast which was included in my room booking was quite average. Like any hotel in Kathmandu expect the electricity to cut out.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled solo

-The staff are good. Very Helpful.(Kumar & Ramesh in particular)
-The rooftop restaurant is good. Nice view.

-Power cuts are annoying and stop the elevators sometimes.
-Thamel is a conjusted location. Small roads and lots of traffic.

A comfortable stay. definitely get the air con option!

The deluxe rooms aren't exactly 'UK deluxe' but still nice and very much worth the £14 a night we paid. A bargain!

The customer service was excellent. I lost my purse when I was leaving, a quick phone to them and they'd found it and kept it safe for me to collect on my return to Kathmandu.

The food was nice and the views from the rooftop restaurant were amazing! A good choice for when you first arrive.

I'd recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: If you've booked a room the mountain views just double check that's what you'll get...

My friend and I stayed in Hotel Nepalaya before and after our trekking experience and had a great time! The staff was courteous, and the rooms were clean and include comfortable beds, hot showers, and free wifi. The wifi was not super fast, but no wifi is super fast in Nepal - overall it was good enough to use skype. We enjoyed sitting in the rooftop restaurant, especially for the complimentary breakfast that is included in the meal. The breakfast includes eggs, toast, tea/coffee, porridge or yogurt, and fruit (all of which are safe for tourist tummies). I am gluten intolerant, and they were even willing to switch out my toast for more yogurt!

The location of this hotel is great - they are right off one of the main roads in Thamel, but in the middle of everything so you can have some peace and quiet. Guests can easily walk to shops, a supermarket, restaurants, and travel companies, or find a taxi to see other Kathmandu attractions. Hotel Nepalaya has a travel desk, although I will say it was more expensive than the other options we found in Thamel. The staff was very professional at the front desk - our flight to start our trek was cancelled multiple times, however the staff worked with us to save a room and hold our extra belongings in their store room while we were gone.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place and would certainly stay there again!

I found Hotel Nepalaya on Booking.com and gave it a shot based on favorable reviews. I'm glad I did! The airport pickup was right on time and easy to locate. The staff is very courteous. The included breakfast is delicious, and the rooftop restaurant is a nice place to hang out, especially in the clear, cool mornings. Our room and bathroom were both clean and comfortable. The WiFi was adequate for Skype voice calls and never cut out (it's backed up with battery during typical Kathmandu power cuts). It's not the very cheapest place in Thamel but I feel like we had a good value for the money.

We ended up checking in and out of the hotel 4 times due to our flight to Lukla getting cancelled. They were more than happy to accommodate us and held on to our belongings securely in the time we were gone. They also helped us navigate our options for getting to the airport under the threat of a transportation strike.

The location is a bit out of the center of Thamel, but I actually appreciated being tucked away from the noise and stink of the center of town. It's just a quick 5 minute walk to the main tourist restaurants, "supermarket," etc.
