During my EBC Trek in March 2014, I stayed at Hotel Blue Horizon. My experience of stay at Hotel BH was excellent. Their customer service, room service and food quality was of top class. I was welcomed everyday by smiling staff who was keen to provude any assistance needed. I would strongly recommend anyone to stay at Hotel BH?

Stayed one night. Room was drab, but ok. Not entirely clean. Hot water worked. Power worked as they have a generator. Quiet sidestreet location v. Convenient for thamel. Best bit is the nice garden, worst bit is the hotel manager who seemed intent on selling us a trek immediately on arrival and thereafter every time we saw him despite that we werent in the slightest bit interested. For this reason i cant recommend this hotel.

I stayed here for three nights. My room was small and damp. The door didn't close properly. I had to bolt it. There was also a gap around the door, great for a peeping Tom!

The bed was comfy. Air con only worked when power was on! No hot water!

Food was ok but the staff were only friendly if you were young and gorgeous! or if you were interested in doing one of their tours.

Won't stay here again!

Dear Margaret,
Thank you very much for staying with us. Sad to hear that you had some sort of problems regarding the room. We apologize for your inconvenience.

It is true that the electricity problem is the biggest issue in Nepal . Not only us but almost all the hotels and companies are suffering the 12 hours + power outage, which we have already mentioned before the check-in. Still, we have managed to provide the 24 hours battery backup for the small electrical appliances like WiFi, charger, room lights etc, and the Generator is turned on upon request, so that you can use AC. This matter could have been sorted if you had asked to the General Manager but you did not.

April is the peak season and we have run out of the rooms. There are 2 rooms which are not in operation which needed few minor maintenance as you said about the doors. We showed you this room is case you like it. If I am not wrong, you have happily accepted this room even after the explanation.

Glad you liked the bed. The weather was not good so there are least possibilities to provided the hot water via solar panels. To use the electrical geysers, again the power outage problem. The generators are turned on everyday at 6 pm so there is 100 % chance to get the hot water after then.
There are rules and regulations in every Hotels around the world.

Our staff will not disturb if you are not willing to talk or want some time alone. It has nothing to do with the young and gorgeous guests. Same thing about the tour packages as well. We explain about the tour packages only once as an introduction, then ask for the second time what you have thought of it. This is our duty to guide. We do not force to take it.

Apologies once again.

Sincerely
Sincerely

Great hotel in Kathmandu. The food was very good, free wifi, pick up and drop off service to the airport, friendly trustworthy staff, a cute garden with tables and they even have toilet paper ;)
Parash did a lovely job of organizing my many adventures here in Nepal. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Not a bit like pictures on Agoda site. My friend and I were given a "de-luxe" room which was smelly, shabby with mould on the walls. I think there are two halves to this hotel, one half has been renovated (and recommended by a friend who stayed there). However, the half we were in was very disappointing. Not only was this the worst of all he hotels we stayed in while in Nepal but it was the most expensive. We had intended to stay for three nights, but moved on to a much newer, cleaner and cheaper place after one night. We would not recommend.

Stepping into the foyer you are engulfed in an air of tranquillity from the bustling streets of Kathmandu just down the road. The warm welcome received over a steaming pot of tea quickly warms your heart to Nepal and the team of Hotel Blue Horizon. The hotel is clean, beds are comfortable, the food is delicious, close to Thamel's markets and the staff professional, friendly and ready to help organise tours for you. After a busy day exploring; recharge yourself sitting in the quiet garden with a cuppa and a chat with one of the many tourists or staff who actually care how you spent your day.
I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Kathmandu.
