“Very Average ”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

The hotel has improved a little over the years. There is now free Wi-Fi in the Lobby for instance. Some hotel rooms have been modernised but they still fall short, by a long way, of the star rating! Staff are nothing special and some can be surly. The adventure travel group EXODUS use this hotel as their Kathmandu base so the hotel has high occupancy rate. If it were not for EXODUS I honestly think the hotel would fold, or be forced to improve to survive. There are clearly better value for money options available.

On a 1day business Trip, stayed at this hotel recommended by friends and reading Reviews on Trip advisor.
Rooms - only ok.
Beds - Small (fear of Rolling out of bed if you moved).
bathroom - only Soap (toothbrush/paste must buy from hotel =50Nr).

all i mean to say that it's not value for money paid.

Location of hotel is not bad, can walk to Thamel and not in the crowded streets. However the rooms are old and in need of maintenance. When we stayed there, the WC was not working but maintenance man did fix it. Then he left with the floor all wet and I had to call housekeeping to clean it which they did. The aircon leaked and water was dripping over the bathroom door. I had enough and only inform the front desk of this when I checked out the next day. The hallway had a damp smell. However the room is clean and tidy. Only 2 bath towels and 1 bath mat is provided. No toiletries or hand towel. Breakfast spread is so so and there is no egg counter. I will not rate it a 4 star hotel. At best a local 3 star hotel. Will try other hotels next time.

Namaste,

Thank you very much for your feedback and for staying with us at Royal Singi Hotel.

It is unfortunate to hear about your experience and we are taking preventative maintenance actions in every room to ensure similar experiences like yours does not occur again. All rooms are also being audited to ensure proper upkeep and necessary upgrades. The hallways will be checked to eliminate the damp smell as we conclude our monsoon season.

Sincerely,

The hotel is situated in the centre of Kathmandu, where you can get a little supermarket and stores just outside the hotel and lots of restaurant including KFC just for 5 minutes walk. You can also walk to Thamel (around 10 mins) and Monkey Temple (around 15 mins) very easily. Staff were helpful who would guide you the way very patiently.

Room was average, as you can imagine for a hotel managed by locals. Despite the interiors were a bit worn out, the room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was better than I first expected, with quite a lot of variety of food which tasted good.

Would come back again for my next stay in Nepal.

We went as a team of four members in September 2009 ( two brothers & wives ).My wife kept her nice silver plated watch on the bed when the cleaning personnel came.Within minutes the personnel pinched the watch.Several of our complaints yielded no result.The hotel practically had no disciplined work force & the management was NOT fully in control of its employees.

Dear Friends,
I had to visit Kathmandu city regularly for my business trip, I had been to this hotel thrice during last 2 months. Hotel is situated in the center heart of the city. Good location to reach from any place in kathmandu. Malls, Market, Restaurants and casinos all are walking distance of 5 minutes.
I will not say food is that too bad, but not tasty enough. Rooms are clean and ok to stay. Air conditioner was not working in my room during my second visit, but that might be a sudden issue only. But the most important thing i did not liked was the behavior of the front reception desk staffs. The staff are not friendly and not smiley at all. Otherwise hotel is good to stay at.

Room Tip: You can find a better option
