The hotel lived up to expectations.I had deluxe room without a balcony to the back of huset.on 3 floor and overlooks a backyard, but since the hotel has two terraces where you can sit down and enjoy the whether.Hotel would bei the way move me to the front of the house with balcony..When rooms are the same and the opportunity to sit in peace. Like the side of the house was very quiet in the evening and nights.I did not not second side.The hotel is very quiet no disco noise on the evening and nights.Offen power failure
Kathmandu, but the room set generator so there was a light bulb that always worked.
Free airport tranfer at check in-check out pay 7 U.S. dollara to the airport.
Staff very helpful and nice.Breakfast OK
The hotel fully lived up to expectations
The room lived up to my demand so Kathmandu again I will go there

Reasonable hotel. The rooms are very different in terms of quality.
The first night I had a room on the roof. You could come here just outside via the roofterrace. Very dark room at the back with a depressing view. It was during the night so cold that I slept in bed with my clothes on. The other room I got was a lot better. At the front with a balcony, facing south, and warm.
Staff are generally helpful and friendly. Maintenance of the hotel can be improved. On the map of breakfast dishes are not all of you can get. I asked for pancakes and that was no problem. The location is centrally located in the Thamel district in a quiet side street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front, with balcony.

The Thamel district of Kathmandu is a magical place and the Thamel hotel is right in the heart of it. If you are a westerner expecting all the comforts of home this might not be the place for you. But if you are on adventure then this place steeps you in the flavor of the area. The staff is professional and courteous. The accommodations basic but adequate. Central to the bazaar like atmosphere of the Thamel district

We spent a few days here before going trekking in early Feb and then a few days after we got back 3 weeks later. The hotel was happy to look after our luggage for us while we were trekking. The staff, especially the manger, were extremely friendly and the smiles & "Namaste"s from the cleaning staff made us feel really welcome. The rooms were relatively clean, the only downsides being the showers were only sometimes hot & we had to fill up the cistern of one of our room's toilets manually. The included breakfast is good value but nothing special. Great location in bustling Thamel & we'd definitely make it our first choice if we're back in KTM anytime soon.

Even the hotel is located in the busist area of Thamel, but it stands in a quiet lane, so around hotel is very quiet. Near hotel, you can find restraunts, shops, & about 10-15 minutes walking to Green Line bus parking to go Pokhara or Chitwan.The room is equipped with air conditioner, bath room has tube & enough hot water. The king size twin bed is comfortable. All the staffs are very friendly to the guests. Hotel provides different style delicious breakfast. We stayed at this hotel total four nights when we arrived in Kathmandu & after we back from Pokhara. The hotel is highly recommended one.

A perfect place to stay in Kathmandu, Hotel Thamel is fabulously located in the center of the busy and colorful Thamel district. The travelers area, just a stone throne from the hotel, is full of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and small travel agencies. Yet, the hotel is surprisingly quiet. It's clean and comfortable, but, most of all, it is run by wonderful people. Thanks guys for the warm welcome and all your help with visiting, traveling outside of Kathmandu, city tips etc. The reception desk is super friendly and able to assist with booking, tours, travel and any problem you may have. It is a really cool place, with good vibes, ideal for trekkers and backpackers.

The hotel staffs were very friendly and the amenities provided were good enough. Suggest to get a tour arranged by the hotel itself as the tour provided is safe and convenient. Bravo to Thamel Hotel. Location of the hotel is good; around Thamel area where lots of bazaars available.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with balcony
