This hotel bills itself as the 'Number One Address' in Kathmandu- a Five Star property. It does have a nice marble lobby. However, the rest of the property reminds me of something you'd find along old Route 66. Windows hang randomly open, curtains sailing in the breeze, allowing the smoke and dirt of the city directly inside. The rooms are small and dark, and adorned with garage sale quality furniture. The plumbing does not drain well, and most members of our travel group can't get water hotter than tepid. A few rooms report bugs. The location is ok - you're close to the Thamel district. The hotel charges $4/hour per device for Internet access, which is outrageous, considering download rates and the fact that most places include it.
Is this hotel unlivable? Certainly not. However, at best this is a two star hotel. Are there better in Kathmandu? There's the rub - I don't know. This is not an 'experience' or one-of-a-kind hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in Durbar Marg, Kathmandu's premier street, 5-star Hotel Annapurna has a long history of excellence in the hospitality industry. Established in 1965 and named after Annapurna, the Goddess of Abundance, the Hotel provides the finest personal service and facilities in Nepal's fabled emerald valley, and its cultural, political and commercial capital. The Hotel has a total of 151 recently renovated Deluxe and Heritage guestrooms, including 5 suites, equipped with modern amenities such as the latest flat screen TV, bedside lighting & climate control unit, tea & coffee making facilities, mini bar and electronic safe. The atmosphere within the 5-acre property is warm and relaxed, the ambiance embracing the unique and friendly essence of Nepali culture and traditions. The Hotel is an architectural marvel, cleverly combining the local pagoda-style with contemporary flair. The Hotel is also famous for its popular eating outlets. The Coffee Shop is the all day, every day place for favourite eats and drinks and surprising new delights. The capital's most exotic Chinese restaurant, the Arniko Room, has established itself as one of the culinary wonders of modern Nepal. If the aristocratic flavour of fabled Mughal kitchens is more your to your taste, then Ghar-e-Kabab is the place to dine either alone or, better still, with your family and friends, AND when the sun goes down - or even a lot earlier - the Juneli Bar, stocked with the choicest drinks from around the world, is the perfect place to hit! In keeping with modern times, the Hotel is entirely Wi-Fi enabled. With extensive banquet and conferencing facilities, beautifully landscaped garden, one of the largest hotel swimming pools, well-equipped gym, business center and the most prestigious shopping arcade, our property is also within easy reach of religious, historical, cultural, architectural and shopping destinations, as well as Government offices, diplomatic missions and airline offices. At Annapurna, it is our promise you will feel truly blessed by the Goddess of Abundance. Hotel Annapurna,'Truly a Heritage of Hospitality' ... more less
