We stayed here on 2 occasions, the rooms are nothing special & the beds are not very comfy. At night you have dogs barking all night which makes it hard to sleep. Management of this place leaves alot to be desired, as they seem to tell you anything & are not the most friendly bunch to deal with. When we... More

Pros: the best point about this hotel is location. it's in Thamel area and it's not. so you have a 5 mins walking distance to Thamel tourist area in Kathmandu but you are far from dogs barking, motorcycles and cars horn and noise and people and drunks scream. it has a nice garden that you can eat your dinner or...

I had a nice stay at the hotel blue horizon. I started in a delux room which was fine but then downgraded to a cheaper room which was also fine but had fewer windows, a little more noise, and harder beds. The rooms seem normal clean for Nepal (as in serviceable but not great, occasion stains and burn marks). Bathroom... More

In my line of work I've been trained to give positive feedback first. The pros included a driver being at the airport to promptly take me to the hotel. I had a single room on an upper floor as requested, though I asked not to be near a smoking room and this wasn't the case. I had hot running water... More

Blue Horizon was a wonderful surprise. Although it was so conveniently located next to Thamel, it felt as if it was completely secluded away from the busyness of the city. The rooms were clean with plush towels (a personal favorite) and a great mattress (another key feature). The momos were AMAZING. Just being in the garden was a peaceful way... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Close to the heart of the popular Thamel area, but secluded enough to escape the noise, the Blue Horizon Hotel is the perfect place to unwind and take a break from the maddening crowds. The Blue Horizon is conveniently located near Thamel's famed shopping center, two major banks, an international library, a taxi stand, and the tourist bus depot -- the starting point for many Nepal adventures. Our rooftop garden and dining area offer enchanting views of the Mountains while blooming flowers surround you with their beauty. Need some relaxation? Come to the Blue Horizon's rooftop and enjoy a panoramic view of Kathmandu and mountain scenery. Our rooftop garden has been thoughtfully designed for your comfort and pleasure, whether you are dining or just relaxing. From here you can enjoy unobstructed views of monasteries in the valley and the surrounding hills, as well as the majestic Himalayas to the north while you wine and dine in natural splendor. Our friendly staff is here to assist you in arranging all of your holiday adventures. Just ask! Hotel Blue Horizon is located very close to the main Thamel area but enough to escape the noise of night life, bars and discos. It is located in peaceful residential area with Buddhist community around. Everything is very nearby such as all major Banks, ATM machine, popular restaurants and trekking equipment stores. Hotel Blue Horizon is located very nearby Green line Tourist bus station and Standard tourist bus stand which is only 4 to 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. The roof of the hotel has very nice views of surroundings and some snow peaked mountains on the north. ... more   less
