“we want to be in same hotel again”
Reviewed 4 June 2011

Great place for us as a couple to be in this small but beautiful nation, Nepal. We got excellent services starting from airport pick-up to hotel services and great sightseeing packages. My wife and i were surprised with an awesome customer service provided for every moment for our two weeks tour.
i would like to congratulate for all those individuals in the hotels who are involved in day-2-day operations and creating a lively environment for us.
Thank you again and for our next trip we will see you all in same place!!!!

Me and my business colleagues ended up being in Hotel Blue Horizon in Kathmandu, Nepal after a long search for a great hotel with its excellent services. We were not disappointed from the customer service provided by the valued employees for every moment within our 1 week stay. Great food service, location was excellent (quiet place in busy and crowded part of the country and great business secreterial services as required for us (business visitors). The garden out within the compound was a great place to be after our busy schedules.
I would highly recommend to experience this awesome hospitality and services from Hotel Blue Horizon!
Cheers to all the hardworking service providers within this organization!

The hotel is situated in the heart of Kathmandu city, at Thamel, which is the Traveller's Paradise. Thamel is the main market area in Kathmandu. The people in Nepal are friendly and ready to help you with everything, but keep it in mind to try and bargain as much as you can with the shopkeepers (sometimes, the prices quoted may be upto three times the original one).
As for the Hotel, it's certainly one of the best hotels in Kathmandu with prompt and efficient service and friendly attitude of every hotel-staff being its hallmarks. Room rents are too good. The restaurant was one of the best in the area. The food here is excellent, just excellent. Another notable thing is its rooms. They are cosy and comfortable, but it may be a bit sweaty due to the 10hr power outages everyday (there is no backup power for fans !!). As for the location, it is pristinely located, tucked inside a bylane of Thamel, among very very natural surroundings and within walking distance of the main market. The wi-fi reception was poor in the rooms (since it had to do with frequent power failures and low voltages) and the internet was slow too. But, in the end it all made up for all the advantages this hotel offered. The roof-top garden and restaurant is good.

Overall : Very Good

Highly recommended

Room Tip: New wing rooms are better

We stayed here twice,the first time by default.We lost one earlier booking,at another Hotel and Blue Horizon helped us and gave us rooms.Only then did we realize we had checked here earlier for rooms and we passed them.The first time we stayed at the new wing and the second time at the old wing.The old wing is somewhat smelly and some rooms devoid of light.Most of the time there is no power so you are better off outdoors ! We had issues with bathroom flush,doors not closing easily,finding power sockets,lights missing ETC,the biggest issue was the front locks which are over the hill and need instant replacement ! The keys simply fall down when inserted…..maybe Management should simply replace them with Cards.

The location is simply devine.Tucked away at edge of Thamel from the crowd,near Greenline Bus Park,the Palace and garden of Dreams,just breeze around the corners to go on to Pokhara Bus Parks,Thamel eateries and shopping areas.There are some smaller eating joints in the lane where you can get simple breakfasts and lunches pretty fast.We had always delays when we ate at Blue Horizon although the food was scrumptious.This lane can be quite ugly and unkempt especially at night when there is no power,so better to have small torch handy.

We had a good rate from the Hotel,the staff were quite jovial and cheerfull all the time,and they gave us proper send off although we did not use their pick-up facility.We simply walked here from Greenline Bus Park.Kids liked the Internet facility and reading materials and the Garden.We took some nice pictures.The owner was always around and he was quite co-operative and easygoing.Heard they will expand too,so willing to check them out again.

Room Tip: Go for higher floor rooms,with more light !

Dear Guest
Namaste from Hotel Blue Horizon, Kathmandu;
Thank you so much for your time to write your experience about us. We are very much sorry for those issues which did not make your stay fully comfortable. We will look in to it and start working in it to provide excellent services to our valuable guest. We really appreciate those suggestions. We are really sorry for the power cut issue which happens all over the city but we do have 2 lights (24 hours) in to the rooms, in the restaurant, in the lobby and in the garden on from the back up through solar power. We did not understand you that you had mentioned not light. You could have informed us then and there so that we would look in to it. We always serve fresh food in our restaurant so that it takes some time to get prepare. We use to tell our guest about it before we receive order food.
We will improve the things day by day and hope that you will see us change when you come next time. As you have heard that we are going to expand our Garden. We are looking forward to have you here next time and proof you that those things are changed.

The hotel was really affordable and convinient with great service.
The day we arrived kathmandu, we hover around so many hotels using airport taxi
some of the hotels were inconvinient and some other were very expensive.
Finally we were fortunate to see this hotel (Blue Horizon) in a very convinient place that too with a beautiful garden.
First we tried for 2 days stay there but after experiencing such a fantastic service, we extended our stay to 2 weeks. The hotel also provides facility to hassel free travel and tours to different tourist locations in Nepal.
Finally i would rate this hotel as the best for the one who is looking for convienient place with good service in affordable price.

Perfect location for backpackers just outside Thamel which makes it a little quieter. Rooms are simple but clean. Pushy owners who pressure you into listening to an intense sales pitch for their packages, but otherwise leave you alone. Reliable pickup from the airport. Im sure there are better deals and nicer places, but this is definitely a good compromise.
