Great staff! Check-in is easy. This is a good, but getting dated, hotel in Nepal. I have stayed here several times. I have also stayed at the Radisson in Kathmandu as well. If you want to compare to 5 star in Europe or the US, then you have incorrect expectations on both price (much lower here) and accommodation. The bed...

Excellent location for downtown and close to restaurants shops and cultural attractions. Clean and comfortable rooms with easy check in and check out. Great service. The food at the breakfast and dinner buffet was excellent. The grounds and pool were beautiful. Only place to stay in Kathmandu. I would have no reservations recommending this hotel for those planning a trek.

We stayed at Yak and Yeti hotel, Kathmandu Nepal for one night at the end of December 2016. The hotel shuttle picked us up from the airport. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the interior is serviceable. It is an old hotel with newer additions. We stayed in second floor adjoining rooms. The stuff were very friendly.

The Hotel Staff at the Yak & Yeti were extremely helpful and attentive. Very nice historical hotel, on a gracious property to be explored in itself. Great place to stay while in Kathmandu. The Hotel is set inside of secured gates, making it a bit of a compound. A bit of an oasis inside the chaos of the city traffic...

I have been guest of Yak and Yeti on several occasions and I will continue to stay there, being in Nepal for my job. The Hotel itself is very beautiful, with its own character and history, very different from that kind of anonymous hotels you can find in other cities of the world and which are often soulless. But the...

It was nice to retreat here after finishing a hectic tour of India and Nepal. The entire hotel and the rooms are clean and beautiful. The staff were efficient and the included breakfast was plentiful. We didn't realise this was quite an 'up market hotel' and felt a little out of place, but nonetheless we enjoyed our stay here.

I stayed here for around four days and found the place to have very friendly staff, was close to the main tourist area called Thamel and had great food that was all cooked fresh (even the bread) at the hotel if you ever go to the buffet meals. The only gripe of the place is that the rooms could be...
