“Nice location out of the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

Friendly and helpful staff, loved the doorman. I enjoyed the location, just a 15 minute walk from Thamel's craziness and away from traffic noise. The lobby is amazing; the rooms, especially the bathroom, are rather tired but comfortable and relatively clean-ish by Nepalese standards. Hot water always worked fine. Breakfast is simple, muesli, toast and eggs. The restaurant serves decent dishes in a lovely garden. I'd come here again.

Looks great from the lobby but sadly the rooms and the service do not match the initial impression given. My bed cover was stained with "human bodily fluids" (which is putting it politely) and I had to ask three times for this to be changed. When the staff finally got around to doing it, they sent up a very surly young man who told me that they had no clean bedding as the hotel was fully booked up. When I said that they must have a linen cupboard with spare bedding, he just looked at me blankly. After the intervention of our tour leader, they miraculously managed to find some clean bedding - all the while insisting that the staining was just from beer.....

Other members of my group suffered similar experiences - one of whom had blood stained sheets and no hot water, others complained of grubby towels in the bathrooms and floors that had not been cleaned thoroughly. At breakfast, both the cold milk and the butter were off, and the lid to the hot milk jug had not been secured properly meaning that it emptied all over the floor (and my legs) when used.

The fact that my room had a decent shower, fortunately with hot water, is the only redeeming feature. Might have been a nice hotel once but has sadly let standards slip very far.

Forget the Radisson Hotel. Forget the Mallon Hotel. Head for the diminutive Hotel Tibet. Why? Well, I have tried the lot over the past 15 years. For me the Hotel Tibet is perfect. Reasonable price ($60 per room/per night). Great ethnic ambience.Centrality. Intimate. Friendly. Personal. These are qualities this hotel has in abundance.It's not every day you can walk up to one of the directors and give them a big hug. I do this on a regular basis and Tsering Dolkar Lama returns me a huge smile and a 'Thank you Stephen'. I bet no -one will EVER remember your face, let alone your name, in the bigger, expensive Western hotels.

Room Tip: To avoid sound from the ghastly night club at the Radisson (opposite) select a room at th rear

We stayed here waiting for our house to be decorated for two weeks. It is a no frills hotel, but comfortable, quiet rooms. A/c that worked, hot water. Menu is fine for a short stay. Location is quiet. What makes it such a great place to stay is the friendly staff who do their best to make you feel less like a visitor and more like a guest. The smart salute from the doorman made the start of everyday a pleasure. The lobby is a real work of Tibetan art, dark carved wood. It's not a western hotel in the sense the nearby Radisson is, but is none the worse for that. As an introduction to Nepal it could hardly have been better.

I like this hotel a lot - it's friendly and interesting with all it's Tibetan art and carpets. The staff are great and always efficient and helpful. There's a nice little garden bar at the back. Rooms are attractive and comfortable. The restaurant is not brilliant, but it's ok if you don't feel like going out. Breakfast buffet could be better presented - it doesn't look all that inviting

I have been to this hotel numerous times over the past decade and I always feel welcome each time. With the same staff, they always seem to remember me. The rooms are comfortable, but this is not a 4 star hotel. One of the nicer features is that it is located in a quieter section of Kathmandu which is a short taxi ride to Thamel, one of the main tourist areas. Food is okay, nothing spectacular. Don't expect that this is a western quality hotel. This is Kathmandu, enjoy the ambiance of a very different culture.
