This hotel hasn't such a high rating for no reason. Truely one of the best experiences of our travels. We stayed with Michelle and Pujon twice during a trip to Nepal in October. Set on a quiet street in the centre of Thamel, you couldn't be any closer to the centre of things. If you are familiar with Kathmandu you may be thinking, I couldn't think of anything worse; the chaos and noise. You need not worry with Hotel Courtyard. It is set back from the vibrance that is Thamel and it feels like you are in your own little world. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with the type of welcome you get from an old friend.A welcome drink to start and then you are brought to reception where nothing is any trouble. The rooms are beautiful (the bed is really comfy) complete with a constant supply of hot water and electricity (this cant be taken for granted in Kathmandu), Breakfast is included with a choice of fruit, cereal, omlettes and pancakes - all cooked fresh to order. Other features include a beautiful courtyard with its own bar where Michelle and Pujon entertain their guests throughout the day and there is always a constant supply of fellow travellers and volunteer workers to chat the day away with. Not sure where to eat. Not to worry, the best restaurants are booked for you and if you want a special treat, ask Pujan to point you in the direction of his familys restaurant (Thamel House). A tasting menu of traditional newari food and dance await you. All for about $12. For us 3 nights were not enough and we will definately be returning in 2013. If you even consider staying anywhere else in Kathmandu, you're crazy. We have also stayed in a much more expensive hotel in Kathmandu during our trip and it didn't even compare. Just to finish, we'd like to thank Michelle and Pujon for making our stay so special (You know what I am referring to).
