I stayed at the KGH twice during a recent trip to Nepal and had a wonderful time. The employees went out of their way to accommodate every request, they were kind, courteous and professional (Thank you, especially Nabin for all of your help!). The KGH is both historic and modern (really!). My three friends and I enjoyed wine in the...

I booked this hotel from a recommendation that I received from friends. We had a split stay, the first being overnight and the second being 3 nights. The first night was fine, apart from there being not elevator and having to walk 5 flights of stairs, the rest was okay. On the second stay, we were on the 4th floor...

Has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. They are also very conveniently located so everything is easy to get to. The gardens are just so easy to kick back and relax in while having a coffee or a cocktail.

I travel to Nepal once or twice a year for work and always stay at the KGH. It is quiet amongst the chaos, the rooms are comfortable, the garden is lovely, there is an amazing cappuccino bar and the staff are unfailingly polite and helpful.

Great place away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel streets - great garden where you can just relax, drink coffee at the cafe inside the grounds and read. Can be a bit loud on weekends with the music from nearby clubs. Food options at nearby cafes are a better option than hotel food and are better priced. Overall, nice...
