Hyatt Regency Kathmandu5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Compared to international standards, this Hyatt Regency is a little on the lower end of Hyatts. Although the grounds are quite large and manicured, the rooms itself are a little dates, and worst of all, the service really needs to be reinforced and retrained. The decor looks to be quite Nepali with a lavish lobby decoration of Buddhist stupas, similar to the ones located at Swayambum temple. No recognition for a lowly Hyatt discoverist (what a stupid name) like me. Assigned to a standard room facing some a small courtyard and other rooms. On a very clear day it's possible to see a bit of the mountains. The room is somewhat dated, with the biggest offense being the beds, which were quite rock hard and without much support. The pillows were next to useless as well. Two bottled waters provided but this is standard in Nepal as the tap water is not potable. The hotel is quite popular with tour groups, and includes noisy Chinese tour groups who talk in loud voices throughout the lengthy corridors. Due to this, we asked to switch rooms. We got switched to a room with an even worse view, of the tent in front of our room, used to host the numerous weddings. Service at the restaurants and bars were non-existent, with prices astronomical for the area, even compared to other large hotels or trendy boutiques. Service at the front desk and concierge were also very unenthusiastic and made you felt like you were bothering them for things. The pool area is a highlight, with a large pool, and a large jetted hot tub, as well as a smaller shallow pool for children. There were usually not many people using the pool, so it was quite a refuge from the chaos outside. Another positive was the proximity to the Boudda area and the Bouddanath stupa. The neighbor is very authentic, and a large congregation of Tibetans live in the area. The distance from the back gate of the Hyatt to Bouddanath was only about 7-10 walk, and especially serene in the morning before 9am, and after 6pm, when the day tourists leave. You can see monks (there are numerous monasteries around this area) go about their daily business, or just walk in circles spinning the prayer wheel around the large stupa. This is one of the most peaceful areas of Kathmandu as well, and you feel the immense pressure of the crazy city as soon as you leave the gates of Bouddhanath and the Hyatt. Both is a quieter refuge from a very dirty, noisy, dusty, chaotic city. The hotel also provides a free scheduled shuttle to Thamel and the surrounding areas. However they will often drop you off in the middle of the street, and you need to immediately brave the traffic and chaos on foot to get to where you want to go. I would just recommend taking a taxi to the city that will drop you off exactly where you need to be.
All year I look forward to my stay at the Kathmandu Hyatt Regency, and I am never disappointed. The spacious, bright rooms and comfortable, firm beds make coming back in the evening a real delight. Should rain or flagging energy make you want to stay in during an evening, there are good English options on TV and good wifi in the rooms. Friendly staff, great service.
We arrived in Kathmandu to madness, monkeys on the telephone wires, wild cows strolling down the roads, traffic and chaos everywhere. We then arrived into the Oasis of the Hyatt. We had a deluxe club room on the 6th floor, easy check in, rooms on the dark side as they only had side lamps, our bed was rather hard, but pillows were lovely and soft. Complimentary water, tea in room. Bathroom big separate bath and shower. The pool area was lovely, really tranquil, beautiful beds with shade. Nice bar, jacuzzi. We are dinner twice in the restaurant ROX which was Fabulous, great service and food amaze. The club room was nice you could get refreshments through the day then in the eve you could have alcohol for 2 hours, wines and spirits.. plus nice canapés and dips. Hotel lacking in ambience, all very quiet and subdued however it was still a nice break and would stay again if we ever was visiting Mount Everest again. All the staff are friendly and helpful.
Close to airport, beautiful hotel, great food choices, front desk staff and bellmen service best I have ever experienced. They went beyond the call of duty in helping me with specific problems I encountered in my travels. Live music was great. Great pool and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.
I've stay there last september for 3 nights, it was my first trip to nepal, and the first 3 days since i arrived! I couldn't find anything less than great! Breakfast was rich of variety, they have lots of option for indian meal, i start to likes indian food since i taste how good it was fresh from their kitchen in breakfast time. A pool is very inviting, bed is super comfy, specious bedroom with super cool bathroom, love every inch of it! Above of every good thing they have, like everybody say in hispitality industry, people is ur best asset! All staff are very welcome, accomodative and makes u feels like come home everytime. Thanx everyone to makes my stay so much enjoyable, see u again next year!
Very large and beautiful property. It’s like a paradise in Kathmandu’s chaos. Beautiful swimming pool, live Nepali music at the foyer and welcome drinks Small but well equipped Gym Rooms are little bit old and A/C with constant mold smell. They have a kind of small casino, non Nepali only. Little bias on my review since came straight from Everest Basecamp Trek with many poor lodges in the way. Either way, definitely would be one of my choices in Kathmandu
I spent in this facility 6 hours only to sleep anx was charged 250 dollar per night i wS asking him to give a discount since i use to stay for 150 dollar since i am happy tih grand hyatt and dint want anything expt a nice bed to sleep and his answer was domt use hyatt next time and now make sure i womt use it Worst sales manager
We enjoyed our stay here. The stupas in the lobby are fabulous. The breakfast buffet was very good with a full variety of foods for most tastes. The room was nice. The floor was polished wood which is a bit slippery. The one negative was the shower head was more like a fire nozzle- very high pressure and high volume. The bed eas very comfortably firm
This is an oasis of a hotel. Spread out over 35 acres, this rather large hotel (250 rooms) is, in my opinion, the best place to stay in Kathmandu. After the chaos and noise and pollution of Thamel and the Kathmandu valley, after the pot-holed ride over the local roads, you can breathe a sigh of relief on arrival at this hotel with the entrance resembling the courtyard of a temple. The rooms are nice, the wait staff is very good, the restaurants are excellent and the Executive Lounge is super. (Ask for Sujita there to help you navigate Kathmandu.) The extensive lobby has great Nepalese sarangi music in the evenings. There is a small lobby bar but it has a beautiful shaded terrace where one can sit and have tea and/or drinks and look out at the Boudinath stupa (which is a 10 minute walk away). The huge swimming pool is very relaxing. Very highly recommended.
I went to Nepal for hiking to ABC. After hiking, we decided to check in to Hyatt Regency. It was a good choice. Comfortable, nice bathroom, great services. But only when the time we were trying to hire a taxi, and the staff was not that friendly. Other than that, we are quite happy. However, the main road to the hotel is a bit messy and dusty. But once you enter the hotel area, you are entering to another world.
