Charming place to stay in Kathmandu. I've been staying here every time since I started visiting Nepal in 2002 (6x). The hotel is located in quieter part of Thamel, close to everything a trekker or a climber might need before heading out into the mountains. Hotel Utse is one of the older hotels in Thamel, it has a distinct Tibetan...

We were a party of teenagers staying at this hotel for five days, staff polite and friendly, rooms basic but beds clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water even though there was a shortage after earthquakes but quality of food topped it all. Fabulous:)

UTSE hotel is an absolutely wonderful, fantastic hotel in every way!!! Receptionists are most friendly and helpful, everything is very clean, food is absolutely DELICIOUS and also served to the room. As a Tibetan hotel it is most beautifully decorated in Tibetan style and there's a lot of attention payed to the detail: from the lobby to the restaurant to...

Variety of rooms for different budget. Free yoga class on Saturday mornings on a terrace. Hot water when we stayed was from Solar system.... So warm late morning and depends on consumption... Rooftop is the best - sunbathing, you can also have a breakfast here and stay till late night.

I have just come back to Nepal and the beautiful Hotel Utse. I travel here every year. All earthquake damage is not anywhere near as bad as the western media portrayed it to be. Hotel Utse has no damage whatsoever. It still has the same happy and bright people working here, and they are modernising things all the time. Come...

The staff seems to be polishing and mopping all the time. On top of that, they have wi-fi; All reception staff speaks English, and are very...

This is a family run hotel in the heart of Khatmandu. We love this place - it feels like home. We used this as a base when I was a child travelling with my parents years ago and again last year in November - it hasn't changed one bit. But why would you want it to? The Tibetan food is...

I stayed here about 10 years ago, so this review may be out of date. I stayed here for a few nights - it felt very safe (despite the civil war at the time), and the food was excellent (they did an interesting spring roll).

I've stayed at Hotel Utse 4 or 5 times in the last 3 years. They always have acceptional service, rooms are clean and comfortable, they now have hot water basically all the time! and their internet service is very good for KTM. The restaurant has excellent food as well. I find it to be a relaxing respite from the bustle...
