Hotel Tibet International
Ranked #19 of 207 Hotels in Kathmandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Strongly recommend Hotel Tibet International, a boutique hotel in Boudhanath near the stupa. Each room is tastefully decorated in the tibetan style, super clean and without the smell of humidity that permeates other hotels in Kathmandu, even the better ones like the the Soltee Crowne Plaza. The staff is helpful and attentive. The food in the restaurant is delicious; the spa and massages a wonder after trekking in Tibet. Breakfast is served on the roof restaurant and the view from it, over the stupa and most of Kathmandu, is worth the stay per itself

This unique hotel is a blend of contemporary facilities of exceptional standard with Traditional Tibetan décor. Everything in this hotel exceeded my expectations. Located next to the Boudha stupa—one of the greatest tourist attractions—Hotel Tibet International offers a serene and peaceful haven that boasts an incredible view of this magical Buddhist site from it’s rooftops. Should one wish to experience the unique culture and people of this area, one need only step out the front door to be greeted by the bustling streets of Boudha, itself a fascinating blend of Nepali and Tibetan culture, many of it’s residents still clad in traditional dress. But what makes this hotel truly remarkable, in addition to it’s high standard of international comfort and astonishingly beautiful aesthetic, is the warmth and excellent care of the staff. Highly professional and yet at the same time very personable, the staff left the impression that they really care, and there was not even one occasion in which I was not greeted with a smile, whether it be at the reception or from the maintenance crew!

I arrived in Nepal quite ill and the care and service I was given here was beyond what I could have imagined. Not only was I upgraded to an incredible room, perfectly furnished and extremely comfortable, but the staff even accompanied me to the hospital in the middle of the night on one occasion. In addition, these lovely people came by my room several times a day to offer me additional quality imported water and to check in on my recovery for the duration of my stay. Truly remarkable! I felt in excellent hands my entire stay here and was very spoiled by the comfortable facilities of impeccable standard. The owner of the hotel is herself an incredible woman of remarkable generosity and kindness, and I believe her vision is very much reflected in this lovely place. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kathmandu. Having met many other guest during my stay here I believe Hotel Tibet International speaks to people of different walks of life—whether you are looking for a classy get away, a rest between trekking adventures, or a serene environment for study of this rich culture—this is the place for you.

Room Tip: I have stayed in three different rooms here and they have all been excellent!

Have returned once and will continue to return. This Hotel was outstanding in every respect. From the moment of arrival until departure the attentive, uncompromising service from everyone made for an uplifiting and memorable experience. The rooms are a good size. Beds are comfortable and the standard of cleanliness faultless. Indeed the general standard and decor was a real surprise. The concierge is worth a special mention. Everything asked for was immediately forthcoming and as a first visit to Nepal there were plenty of questions and requests.
Altogether a stay at this Hotel was a highlight and without hesitation I will continue to refer friends and family to share the experience I so enjoyed and will always remember. A big thank you!

I have to agree that this hotel has some of the friendliest and most helpful staff anywhere. Couple of things worth noting. I had a standard room, I am 6.1 during the free massage (a great idea) I was lying across the bed and the to massage ladies could not fit in at my head and feet. It's a bit small in other words. Steaming hot water in the morning but tepid at night, hard to get a shower at the right temperature and my room had shower in bath so lots of dancing around. It's in Bouda which is relatively far from town so taxis are expensive. Having said this some great little temples nearby.

I Iiked breakfast on the rooftop and restaurant for evening meals was fair. Airport is close so that's a plus. I recommended this to 2 colleagues who booked there and liked it.

Last comment is the price is a little high for what it is especially in the wet season but overall for Kathmandu it's fair value.

Room Tip: Definitely go for an upgrade.

The service was exceptional. The staff were endlessly attentive and kind and thoughtful. I felt as though I was an old friend from the moment I arrived. The rooms are beautiful. Such elegant taste and style. But the other thing that was amazing is that Hotel Tibet International has a restaurant that serves the most delicious food at one third of the prices of the cafes down the road! Amazing.
I will never stay anywhere else. Without a doubt it was one of the most enjoyable hotel stays ever. Till I return!
