Recent guest reviews

The location in Thamel is great. The room was okay. It was quite dirty, but we didn't really expect anything else considering the cheap price. Without air conditioning it got really hot in the room. There was a fan but it didn't help very much. The biggest problems were the really poor water pressure in the shower, which made it difficult to shower, and that there weren't any water in the toilet so we couldn't flush. We were also disappointed with the pool, which didn't look very tempting. They arranged transport to the airport for 880 rupees.

I stayed with a large group here and the staff here was very accommodating and was willing to answer any of our questions. We were even able to host a Clue murder mystery game! The rooms were nice and comfortable with huge windows. There were nights where there was warm water but most nights it was freezing cold. We were right next to a night club so make sure you bring your ear plugs if you want to sleep through the night.

Our stay at Acme Hotel was wonderful! Very clean, friendly staff, and they hosted our large group with excellence! The owner was delightful and They have a beautiful yard in the front with a pool and trampoline for kids. Also, you can order an affordable breakfast or coffee right there at the hotel. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We had a large group of 30 people stay at this hotel. They were very kind and accommodating. We were so thankful for all of their help! Plus, there is so many restaurants and other convenient stores for those who stay here. I highly recommend!

The staff were super helpful, and friendly. They would go out of their way to help. The rooms were comfortable and clean and had everything that is needed for a short stay. Would definitely stay here again.

Staying at Acme house was great. The clubs were a loud nearby. If you are sensitive to sound then you might struggle sleeping. Otherwise the room is a great value for the price. Stay at Acne because they’re awesome!

Great stay and wonderful hosts. They staff always greeted with a warm smile and cheerful heart. The beds were comfortable and the front lawn was quiet and spacious. Breakfast and dinner were reasonably priced as well.

Worst hotel in terms of Rooms, Campus, Cleanliness, service and staff etiquettes. First the Guest House is more suitable for Backpackers and single travellers. Shabby rooms with tiny bathrooms full of mosquitos and insects. Pathetic room service, plenty of time when you seek room service the reply will come that they don't have any boy for service. Guest house is located inside busy streets of Thamel where outside cabs r not allowed. When we were checking in room boys came to main road to pick the luggages but when we checked out they asked us to pick our luggage and reach main road where cabs are available for airport. I alongwith 1 infant, wife n son had to walk for almost 1.5 KMS to get cab that too with luggages. When I asked the receptionist to get a cycle rickshaw so to transport the luggages to main road she said cycle rickshaw will not come inside thamel but when v left from hotel v saw plenty of cycle rickshaws parked just outside the hotel. Receptionist is a lady who is too cunning. She won't allow us to hire any outside cabs and when v book her cabs the driver will gives worst service than her. She charged 1500 NPR for Pashupati Nath temple tour which is hardly 10 Kms up and down. Swimming pool and garden are just for namesake. A dirty circular pool having radius of hardly 2 metres n depth of 1 metre is not good for even kids. Conclusion: For backpackers it is an ok accomodation if it is available at cost below 500 NPR. But for family ppl it is worst...please don't fall prey to their advertisement of swimming pool and play zone of kids.

Excellent location in the hub of Thamel district, Kathmandu, but quite noisy, so ear plugs are recommended if wanting an early night. A good budget hotel, with friendly and very helpful staff. It has a garden area to sit in which adds to its attraction. They will arrange to collect you from the airport but unfortunately for us, the car didn't show, so we had to get a taxi, of which there are many, and only cost 700 Nepali rupees. The hotel staff were very apologetic and refunded this cost. I would definitely stay again at Acme Guest house.

We choose this place because they had a pool. However in the first 2-3 days it was closed due to cleaning. The rooms were not so clean, and the shared bathrooms were quite dirty and often busy. We had much nicer rooms with private bathroom for the same price in the area.
