Kathmandu Guest House
Ranked #38 of 207 Hotels in Kathmandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2012

"Guest house" name gives us a different feeling but its a good hotel to stay at Kathmandu. Its safe and centrally located at place called Thamel. Everything is stones throw away. Restaurant is small but serves good food. Good place to stay with family as well

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden

Im an 18 year old traveler and was on a very tight budget but the Kathmandu guest house was perfect. They gave us a very very reasonable price after a little bit of negotiation and the rooms were perfect for us, basic needs were met with a nice bed and warm shower alongside a lovely atmosphere that just made all of us feel so at home. The hotel was like a solace from thamel, even though it was positioned right in the center having everything a stones through away the hotel was like a whole other world of safety and tranquility. The gardens were lovely and the people were amazing, they were able to help with every question we asked along with a nice chat.
Would go back in a heartbeat!

A good hotel in the best location, close to everywhere. I had a room on the 3rd floor of their new Siddhi Annex which had a excellent views to the garden. The room was large and well appointed. Staffs were really friendly and helpful. The food was excellent.

Room Tip: Try their new "Siddhi Annex". It's really great.

Last week I returned to Kathmandu after teaching for a full year in China. I was horribly worried that I wouldn't be able to get a reservation -- especially since the contract's ending date was uncertain, and my needs were for a rather inexpensive room. However, the Reservations Manager wrote to me in China and even arranged for a complimentary 11 pm pickup at the airport! Later, the Operations Manager smoothed the way when my dates got scrambled.

I didn't think it would be possible to relieve my exhaustion and soothe my nerves, but this place has. For one thing, they've added several young professionals, Nepalese people with very good English and sympathy for how hard work and travel can be nowadays. Two young women made my life so much easier that I can't say enough. Both Pragya Tuladhar, the Guest Relation Officer, and Narayani Maharjan, Housekeeping Manager, were educated in the West, and they perfectly understand our needs.

My favorite rooms are in the old Rana palace part of the guest house, though all the rooms are comfortable and very clean. The garden, with or without the excellent restaurant service, is peaceful and soothing. I spend an hour a day reading on the well-padded swing, or sitting in the shade of a palm tree, watching the sky.

I hope you'll give Kathmandu Guest House a try. It's worth it!

Room Tip: My personal preference is for a room close to where the Beatles stayed in the '70's

I have been staying at the KGH on and off for many years - I find it convenient, welcoming and good value (I usually have one of the cheapest rooms), but there are often problems of overbooking in high season and even those who have reserved rooms may be required to spend a night or two in another room before they get access to the one they booked. Many of the staff have been there for years, which makes it generally friendly and familiar. But it needs a clear cold hard look at itself to re-invent itself and cater - as it tries to do - better to a wide range of visitors, from lowly to high spending

Room Tip: have a look first if you can, if not then book for a night first and have a look if you decide to sa...

We got a room at the back of the building. Windows are open to a narrow street where 6-7 am the traffic started with usual horning. WiFi is not included and it is rather expensive. Have the morning coffee in a cafe nearby where the WiFi is included for free as the coffee is not included in the breakfast. Bathroom is ok. Could be more clean, but can survive.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July this year and will NEVER stay here again. Paid US$50 to stay in a fan room. The main reason for staying here was as a treat prior to trekking to watch some Olympic action. This was not to be the case - the power was constantly off, and, despite having generator power only power to the lights in the room was supplied. When I complained I was informed by the very rude man at the front desk that power is preferentially given to those in air conditioned rooms; if I cared to pay another $30 plus 23% tax then I could upgrade to one of those rooms. On top of this the sheets were dirty, bathroom was filthy, the room smelled like it had not been aired in 6 months and was very stuffy, the beer in the restaurant was warm and overpriced. I could not agree more with previous comments that the staff in the bar then hover trying to sell you more warm, overpriced beer. There are a lot better hotels in Kathmandu for much more reasonable prices.
