I have stayed at the Kathmandu Guest House nearly every year since 1999. I love the place for it's great character being a rambling, constantly evolving former Rana Palace. It is totally individual...constantly evolving. Nabin and the front desk staff have provided great rooms for our students and friends. In 2010 we had no problems retaining rooms beyond our booking...

Kathmandu Guest House is a good hotel. We stayed here on three different occasions throughout our two week tour of Nepal and looked forward to our return each time. The running theme in the reviews is that this is a real peaceful haven in the middle of the bedlam and noise of Thamel, Thamel certainly has its charm but after...

An excellent stay, both times. Clean and spacious room with excellent helpful staff and a wonderful oasis of peace away from the busy streets of central Thamel. A good launch - pad for a trekking holiday.

Whilst being well located and well appointed we found that the KGH was totally unreliable with respect to honouring reservations. Book at your peril!! We booked months ahead for 2 nights leading into, and for 2 nights after our Everest Base Camp Trek and on both occasions our reservations were disregarded to the point that we had to find alternative...

Centrally located Guest House in the centre of the Thal district. Airport pickup is available. Have stayed during 3 trips to Nepal, and will continue to do do. Building is set back from the road with a guarded gate. The staff are very friendly and provide assistance with any requests. Trekking shops, restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance.

This hotel was one disappointment after another. The rooms were shabby, even by Nepal's standards. I used their travel desk to book a driver for a sunrise drive. No driver showed up for my 4am pick-up. When I asked the desk to call the booking agent, his phone was turned off. There was no manager on duty until 8am; so...

This is a charming place to stay with a lovely atmosphere. The free airport pickup was helpful and the food in the candle-lit restaurant is spot-on. Only downside for us was the loud music coming from a nearby bar that boomed into our simplicity room keeping us awake the first night. Beds super comfy and lots of nooks and crannies...
