Recently my friends and I stayed at the Kathmandu Guest House (KGH ) on November 11 and 26. KGH is located at Thames district of Kathmandu, which is the happening place for tourists with many restaurants and cafes, as well as many shop selling trekking and climbing gears and clothing. The hotel provide comfortable room with sufficient supply of toiletries...

After a wonderful yet challenging trek through the Annapurna Circuit, and a difficult 4x4 and bus ride back to Kathmandu from Pokara that lasted 20 hours... the saving grace of world class standard in comfort and tranquility that is the Kathmandu Guest House truly redeemed us back from the pit of exhaustion, pain and torment that was our long trip...

I have been to hundreds of hotel but if I have to prepare a list of 'fake' Ines this hotel would have a good chance to be included. As a building and rooms and interiors, it's a well done and very good. However, they apparently seems to cater to Europeans only. I can't comprehend why? The moment I arrived, the...

Kathmandu is not known for comfort, it is a busy dusty noisy and cramped place but this hotel is a welcome bit of tranquility in the chaos. Beautiful gardens, good service, reasonable food (by Nepalese standards) and good rooms make this a reliable place to stay. Always professional and capable, the staff here know Nepal well. Smack nang in the...

I have stayed at the KGH four times in recent years and am booked in again in December and January. In the fascinating mayhem that is Kathmandu this hotel is an oasis that, literally, caters for all. There are budget rooms and luxury rooms besides a restaurant that serves both Nepali and international cuisine. You can trust the guides and...

I really enjoyed my stay here. We made friends with a few of the people there, ate their restaurant almost every night and enjoy the fire they put on. It's hard to find a Hotel with a courtyard to chill out with a beer and Kathmandu guest house has just that.

I stayed here at the start and end of an intrepid trip to Everest base camp. While the rooms are not large they are perfectly adequate after days staying in teahouses. The garden is a quiet oasis in the middle of Thamel however the service for drinks was extremely poor.
