The hotel is located in Thamel, the most popular shop and restaurant area of Kathmandu. It's situated on a side-street so it's immune to the constant noise of honking cars, motorbikes and the dust. The quietness is exceptional. The highly friendly staff tended immediately to the needs of our group. Western level - comfortable - beds, good buffet breakfast, free WiFi and clean rooms. A top value for your money! We'll gladly be back with future groups!

Excellent hotel in this price range. Super friendly staff, well located - even being in Thamel, the street is calm and quiet. Comfortable rooms and good shower with hot water all day. Very good free wifi internet, for nepali starndards. Highly recommended.

Norbu Linka is located in the heart of Thamel which made it easy for shopping and dining, a short walk to durba square. The hotel is clean and well managed. Although the room is not very spacious but there is enough room for 2 people. Staffs are nice and friendly, Mr. Tamang the general manager is very helpful and friendly. In summary, Norbu Linka is a Nice & affordable hotel! - SinderelLad

The Norbu Linka is a great hotel, one of my favorites. It's in the center of Kathmandu, yet quiet and peaceful. The rooms are clean and modern. A free breakfast is included. The staff is knowledgable, friendly and helpful. I will stay at the Norbu Linka when I return to Kathmandu. I highly recommend this place.

The Norbu Linka is a comfortable and well managed hotel with friendly efficient and knowledgeable staff.They offer the usual support and arrangement facilities for those who intend to go trekking while avoiding the hard sell that can so often irritate independent trekkers or those who prefer to make there our arrangements.

Norbu Linka both before and after our treks, the Hotel has always been perfect for us clean, friendly, and welcoming, free airport pick up,safe storage of your luggage while you our trekking.

This hotel is hidden away up a quiet backstreet, just off the bustling streets of Thamel (the main tourist area of Kathmandu). Throughout the hotel is very clean and the rooms are fresh and comfortable with good hot showers. Staff are professional, friendly and efficient. Good restaurant for guests and non-guests alike.
