Team of 8 people, stayed 14 nights, (Sept/Oct 2012) whilst working in an orphanage. We all would go back again. Clean, respectful, honest hotel. Good restaurant, money changer, ATM, Barber, Tours Desk etc all on site. Located in the middle of Thamel. This is a busy hotel for a very good reason, good old fashioned service.

Room Tip: Pay extra and get the A/C

the hotel is beautifully laid out with lovely gardens and great restaurant and and buffet breakfast. It's pushed back off the main road of Thamel which makes it somewhat of a haven in the midst of the chaos. Several levels of accommodation, check carefully- we payed 50$ for a double which was very old and run down.

Room Tip: The standard rooms in the older part are very low standard and smelly, for 50$ quite pricey. Make sure to get rooms in the newer part.

We are a british family with nepali links and have been travelling to Nepal for many years with our two young children (now 9 and 6). I first came to Nepal in 1996 and once I found the Kathmandu Guest House I found my home in Nepal. In fact I even based myself there during my volunteer work in 98/99 as the Guest House provide budget accommodation as well as luxury, which is still the case today. On our recent visit we were lucky to stay in the new build of the Kathmandu Guest House. Wow it's amazing. So simplistic yet so Nepali in its feel and look. It's clean, practical and spacious and we even had a baclony onto the lovely garden. Unfortunately on this particular trip several of us got sick but the Kathmandu Guest House staff looked after us like a family. They were all brilliant with the kids too and nothing was too much trouble. One of the things that striked me on this trip was the staff retention. I still receive hugs and namaste from staff who have been working there for as long as I've been travelling there - almost 15 years. It really is like coming home. I would definatley recommend the Kathmandu Guest House, having visited as a traveller, a volunteer, a professional worker and now a family visitor, it's met my requirements every time. Ask for Uttum, Nabin or Pragya on arrival, make friends, trust them and feel at home and your return to this home again and again.

Room Tip: Ask to view the room on arrival - they don't mind you changing. A room overlooking the garden is perfect.

KGH is one of those life experiences that everyone should have at least once when visiting Kathmandu's Thamel tourist district. Its history as the former royal palace, its rich architecture and interior and beautiful tea garden are worth a couple of nights. The courtyard restaurant is very good and frequented by non-guests as well as overnighters. The all-you-can-eat morning breakfast buffet is unique for Kathmandu with eggs/omelettes cooked to order in the open-air kitchen and self-service on the selection of sides and beverages. Most of the hotel's rooms are modest and unremarkable. Electricity is available 24 hours due to the use of generators during load-shedding hours, but "hot" water from the rooftop solar tanks can only be expected in the afternoon. Early morning and late night showers are endurance tests. These descriptions do not apply to the luxury suites available on ground level just off the courtyard. Spacious and plush, with king beds and huge baths with individual water heaters that supply scalding hot water anytime. The rates are super high, even by Thamel standards, but the service and amenities are above-average. A stay at the KGH should be considered a bucket-list deal. One and done. Better values all around the neighborhood.

Room Tip: If you can afford one of the large luxury suites, go for it. If staying in the main hotel, ask for a room away from the courtyard, which is busy and noisy from early morning to late night.

the charges are exorbitant considering what they provide ..... nothing really for what they charge . just because it is located in thamel [ delhi"s paharganj ] it does not mean they should charge so much . what i realize is that it is better to take an all inclusive package from delhi . that is cheaper overall and you get an actual 5 star hotel .
