Friendly staff. Clean facilities. Up on a hill with amazing view of the Balthali valley. Good breakfast and food. Nice fireplace in the lobby to warm up and chill at night. Rooms with view and hot water showers.
Very simple and basic getaway from Kathmandu valley for a night or maximum two-night stay. Some hikes can be undertaken around the area but the hotel staff weren't very supportive in guiding. That can always be overcome by taking the lead yourself and walking out in a direction and heading out. Hikes aren't difficult and will be quite relaxing. Food was quite good, prices reasonable. Rooms were simple, but seemingly comfortable. Views are decent too. Access isn't great but nothing to be put off by.
I had a really good time staying in Balthali Village Resort, peaceful and greenery all around you with hospitable service. Nice location for tourists to go and avoid the crowd in Kathmandu. really nice place to stay in highly recommended.
place as such is not bad for such a remote location... not very far from the capital kathmandu...but the road up the hill is not that great! might be better for those like to hike. food was average..staff helpful..very much affordable.
At Balthali Village Resort, our room had a great view of foggy mountains. We even had a balcony to enjoy the view from, but the workmanship of the building was poor overall by our standards, if the finishes were anything to go by. There were gaps between the window frames and the building, lines marking power points, the door didn't close except by bolting it - and numerous other things. But the place was new (so maybe some of those things were still to be fixed) and the beds were really nice and comfortable and the shower nearly had hot water! There's a great garden area, the restaurant also had good views and some interesting plants (they'd be illegal in Aus).
We stayed at the Balthali Village resort for one night, you will need a 4x4 to reach the hotel. We opted to walk to the hotel once the roads became bad, this was a wonderful walk and we enjoyed it immensely. The staff at the hotel were welcoming, WiFi doesn’t work that great but who needs the internet with the beautiful views and excellent trekking! The view from our balcony was breathtaking, that itself was worth the money in our opinion. We hiked to the Namo Buddha from the hotel, took about 2 hours and we thoroughly enjoyed hiking through rural Nepal and meeting the locals.
We [team of Nepalese and foreigner researchers from the university] stayed at Balthali Village Resort for 5 nights [30 Nov-5 Dec 2017] to do a survey of post-earthquake situation of villages at Balthali. Due to lack of professionalism on hotel management, we suffered a lot - mentally and financially: [a] We requested for a separate printer two weeks before. After arriving at resort, they gave us one but it never worked out - no cable and no driver. Tried to use hotel computer and printer, they do not have a single computer. Next day they promised to get print from nearby school. We went there but the computer over was out of order. We a team of nine person spoiled one full day and hampered a lot on our research work; [b] After a couple of two days, while checking out two experts of our team, they wanted to pay the hotel bill through credit card, which was also confirmed two weeks before. But at the time of checking out, the machine did not work. The hotel does not take foreign currency too. This was another big tension for the whole team; [c] The room does not have even intercom telephone. Our foreign guests felt very much unsecured. There was no 'hanger' in the cupboard and no looking mirror in the room. The waiting space near dinner hall does not have any local and English newspaper. The rooms are cold and the wifi hardly works. As a result, we could not work at night; [d] We requested them to prepare the breakfast at 7:30 am as we have appointed with some persons in the morning. When we arrived at the dinning hall, hardly anybody is there. After many requests, they finally brought breakfast at 8:30 am. At the weekends, there are many peoples come for site seeing and relaxation. At that time, the hotel staffs hardly cares others. We saw people making noise, smoking even inside the dinner hall without caring other guests. So, be careful while using this place. Also, check other resorts in the same vicinity, which might be far better in terms of services, prices and hospitality.
A very nice and quiet hotel. The staff extremely helpful and friendly. Food was fantastic. The environment is perfect for beautiful walks. I will never forget the view of the sunset. Indescribably beautiful.
Stayed here for three nights. Nice clean 'western standard' rooms and a balcony view to die for. (in the deluxe rooms anyway). Rooms are in blocks set among well tended areas Its not easy to get to and a jeep is needed if you dont want to walk. (Hotel Jeep 1500 NR from Khopasi, 2000 NR from Panauti) Nothing to do here except go for walks or gaze at the mountains. Ask at reception and they will arrange a guide for walks as long or as short as you want. They don't charge but a tip is expected. A day trip to Panauti is well worth the effort. 35 min walk to Khopasi and then bus (15 NR). Large groups of Nepalis come up at the weekend and it can be quite loud. Food is excellent but lacks variety if you want vegetarian.. Its really fancy Dahl Baht or fancy Dahl Baht. The included breakfast was spot on. The staff were courteous and friendly and we felt welcome the whole time.
We went there after a regular hike. We were really hungry and we went right in the restaurant. We were planning to stay in the resort. We ordered their special, Balthali Khajaset, Chicken chilli and some other dishes which I don't remember now. We were so dissapointed by the food served that we canceled our plan to stay there. The chicken in the khajaset and in the chicken chilli were both same no difference in taste whatsoever. The chicken was quite hard and some were cold. It was clear that it was refrigerated they didn't even bothered to heat the chicken enough before serving. I am pretty sure it was leftover dish from previous day or so. Really really dissapointed. I would not recommend anyone to go there.
