Good Hotel with friendly staff and good location. The Splash Bar on the 5th floor gives you a nice city view. The beds are like sleeping on a hard floor!!! There was nothing comfortable about the. The room itself was fine but the bed. . . !! The Olive Garden Restaurant has very good food and the staff was very friendly. Except for the bed I

i stayed at this hotel in february, 2012 and had a very comfortable stay.... the services were quite systematic and it gives a feel that every thing is in place... the room was very comfotable... most lovely experience is at their coffee shop... the buffet has wide spread.... staff were very courteous.... they anticipated the needs and ensure to pamper the guests.... the kitchen boy at the live counter deserves a special mention... he was amazing....

thanks to all at Radisson Kathmandu...

Room Tip: all rooms are good..

We were guests of the Radisson for 3 nights while visiting Kathmandu in February.
This is a very busy hotel with an international clientele. Inexplicably, the lobby is decorated with prints from Paris, etc. and does not play up its location, as does for example, the magnificent Dwarika hotel. The hotel, however, is undergoing significant expansion and hopefully the new building will reflect its magnificent architectural and artistic legacy.
Our room, while not luxurious, was well equipped and included a flat screen T.V., make up mirror, toiletries, laundry bag, etc. Turn down service was available. Housekeeping was good, although there are some long term maintenance issues.
There are rolling power failures in the city-load shedding- but the back-up generators come on very quickly. We did experience the water being off for 15 minutes one day.
The location of this hotel is excellent. It’s in the diplomatic area and we were able to walk around the area comfortably and without any concerns for our safety.
The strong suit of the hotel is its staff. Door men, guards, porters, front desk, and restaurant staff were without exception charming, agreeable, and service oriented. One is more disposed to overlook some of the hotel’s flaws as a result. For example, we were there during wedding season. The hotel’s main dining room has windows that face a lovely court yard with waterfall. The area had been set up for an event. Days after, the tables remained with table cloths still on them. Not a pretty or reassuring site in terms of care and attention to detail. But we were less upset about it because we enjoyed the staff.
Breakfast had a good variety of foods, including both western and Asian dishes. We had an early Everest flight one morning with pick up at 6:30 am. Although the restaurant does not open until 6:30, our guide arranged for them to open at 6:00 to accommodate us.
There is an Olive Garden (likely not the brand) serving Mediterranean food and also an Outback menu (again, likely not the brand) featuring meat. We did not eat there.
We did have a drink at the Splash Bar on the 5th floor. It was pleasant, although the service was a tad amateurish and the furnishings outdated and shabby. The hotel also has another bar and patisserie in a separate building on the property.
Despite, its problems, the hotel is a good option.

After completing my mountaineering expeditions to Mt . Kailash & Muktinath i chose to stay at the Radisson in Kathmandu

The service i received from the Travel Desk to the concierge was brilliant

when i had booked my stay i had asked them to book me in a non - smoking zone , the day i checked in they upgraded me to their premiere rooms and i was truly humbled

The food was truly mouth watering and a wide variety to choose from , the a la carte / buffet or room service

so any mountaineers heading to nepal soon , do consider staying in @ the Radisson Kathmandu .

The third time I have stayed at the Radisson in Kathmandu was a tad disappointing.
We had booked online before we arrived but with 2 adults and 2 children we decided to view the rooms before we arrived. We were very pleasantly surprised to be shown adjoining rooms with a central lounge room. Not like I had ever seen before at the Radisson. The price was expensive at $420 US per night but we thought we would lash out for the short 3 night stay. So we changed our booking and took the adjoining rooms and trekked off to a family wedding.
On our return we went to the Radisson from ur humble $20/night accommodation in Thamel and were advised that - "The guest in one of rooms had extended his stay and as he was a regular customer they wanted to look after him." .... basically converts to "Dear Sir, you've been shafted"
We ended up with rooms with a corridor in between.
Then we found out the pool could not be used for a month, which didn't matter because the lifts only worked occassionally.
Our rooms were great, they just were not we had viewed and booked.
On the positive, the restaurant is great and the staff tried really hard.
