Very nice and not expensive hotel with kind staff. Location, service, condition of rooms, food, wifi - good. There are many restaurants, shops, cafe next to the hotel. Also there is an open terrace where you can see a good view to Kathmandu and nice place for relaxing.

At $22.50 per night it was over our normal budget... More

Stayed here multiple times over the past couple months, and Yambu always feels like home. Fast wifi, fresh and tasty breakfast and most importantly- friendly and helpful staff that will make you feel like at home. Oh and extra points for the rooftop and the view you get from there!
