It was during my last year's vacation when I had visited this hotel. Swayambhu Stupa or Monkey Temple as tourists commonly call it, is very near. One can walk in the morning and take a visit to the stupa and return back to the hotel for the coffee. The service of the hotel is best and I never knew staff...

For the price I paid, expected much more. The rooms are very old and basic, definitely in need of renovation .. During power cuts its very dark walking the corridors and the bathroom blacked out. The pipes and tubes need seriously cleaning or upgrading. Bed was hard and uncomfortable, but bearable for one night. The staff seemed friendly enough and...

I stayed at hotel vajra in 2000 and 2002. I was disappointing so far with my experience in 2012 and would not recommend the hotel: Checkin: - we were helped with our bags by two helpful porters. - the checkin process took quite a long time. The reception staff were slightly rude and pushy and did not seem to be...

I stayed at the Vajra three times in the basic room with sink during my recent trip to Nepal. As other reviewers have noted, it is a calm oasis in Kathmandu. No problem getting taxis and a easy walk to Thamel. Clean and quiet. Love it!

After reading other reviews of Hotel Vajra, I decided that it was definitely the place for me to have a well deserved rest at following a week doing Humanitarian work in the rural Lamjung region in November of 2010. I chose to stay in a private room in the Trekkers House and was able to enjoy all the amenities of...

This hotel is away om the hustle and bustle of Thamel, however it is within walking distance. The Monkey Temple is also with walking distance. Do know that when you are walking you have to be very aware of all that is going on around you. Traffic is crazy! The hotel is in a great setting. Multiple buildings form a...

I was expecting a wonderful stay at this hotel having heard positive reports from fellow travellers back in April 2011. However, I was disappointed when I found myself almost completely alone at the hotel! Where was everybody else? IMPORTANT: lock up any valuables (money especially) and keep the key with you! I'll say no more about this disappointment - instead...

The hotel is a very quiet place in the chaotic city of Kathmandu. There is a big garden in nepalese style and in the houses of Vajra you feel like staying in a temple. Everything seems a little bit dark and mystic. The rooms are quite big with a nice view into the garden. Vajra is not a 4* Hotel,...
