Hotel Thamel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I really enjoyed my time at Hotel Thamel. It is right in the centre of the Thamel district but still quiet and comfortable. The staff was great and friendly! Breakfast was large and delicious! I recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Kathmandu!

Great location on the edge of Thamel. Hotel has nice traditional decor. Rooms are comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and some with balconies. Has a restaurant on site but there are lots of great places in Thamel close by to choose from. The front desk staff are super helpful and friendly and a good resource for what's available in the area. Great for a budget traveler who wants somewhere clean and comfortable. There is a laundry service on site but also a cheap service just around the corner. Can be noisy outside at night with dogs barking but that's just Thamel so bring ear plugs.

Next time I come back to KTM, Hotel Thamel will be my hotel of choice. The staff are professional, courteous, kind, and helpful. They helped me organise day trips around and outside Kathmandu, and the room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. If you're looking to stay anywhere around Thamel, this is your best option, without a doubt!

I have been to Kathmandu multiple timkes and have always stayed at Hotel Thamel. The location is excellent - right in the heart of Thamel but most of all the staff - superb. The breakfast at the hotel is really great!! and the stay was really nice. Bishnu at the counter really helps make our trip excellent. when my luggage was lost by the airline - he really helped arrange it back, made the stay excellent when my family visited together. Sanjay in the breakfast area also did an excellent job - made our stay memorable. I would definately recommend this hotel.

This hotel comes highly recommended. It is well situated off the main street which makes it a quiet and relaxing place to stay. The rooms are large and well maintained. Hot water works, as does the aircon and other amenities. The staff are just fabulous, professional, friendly and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I would like to make particular reference to Bishnu who assisted us with our room preference requests and one of the house maids (Indira I think her name was) who lent us her personal phone charger (as we had lost ours). We look forward to coming and visiting our friends at this hotel again sometime.

Loved staying here - sort of old-fashioned feel with friendly local staff and great terraces - both on rooftop and first floor - and many rooms with balconies at the front. Felt I was in real heart of Kathmandu. Shops and cafes so close by and hotel arranged out of town trips.

We had a really good stay again. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were great. The rooms were beautifully clean and comfortable. The hotel is well situated with good access to local facilities but set back a bit from the main drag so that it has a peaceful feel amid the bustle of Kathmandu. See you again soon.

Excellent budget accommodation. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Deb the hotel driver is also very accommodating. The beds were comfortable and the showers were hot. Good proximity to the local markets and tourist attractions, but tucked away nicely for privacy.

Just back from 6 nights at Hotel Thamel. We were in room 504 (suite) on the 5th floor. A lot of stairs to climb but you are rewarded with a huge room and 2 balconies. The thing that makes me give this place a 5 star review is the attitude of the staff. Every member of staff we encountered, greeted us with warmth and welcomed us like long lost friends. Thank you to you all for making our stay so perfect!

Cute, inexpensive hotel. Friendly staff. Located in the heart of the tourist district. Easy walk to tons of shoos and restaurants. Hotel staff will call you a taxi for you if you wish to explore further.
