The hotel is very nice, cozy and well-located in the center of Thamel. We had booked it from Italy and spent the first two nights there. After spending the next week on trips out of Kathmandu we realized that its comforts are really a luxury for Nepal standards. In fact, in Nepal it is difficult to have private bathroom, hot water, constant electricity, wi-fi and a heating system all working properly in the same hotel (they were all working properly at all times at the Ambassador). So we went back to the Ambassador on our last night in Nepal though it is more expensive than most Kathmandu accomodations (but not so expensive compared to European standards - we spent 60 euros with breakfast and wifi included). In addition, the hotel is very clean and smells very good (which is not at all granted in Nepal). Last but not least, the service is very good, with professional staff that is always available and really friendly: they make you feel almost home. I think this is what makes the major difference with the other hotel considered as golden standard by travellers in Thamel, the Kathmandu Guest House. In fact, we have tried KGH as well: although our judgement could be a little biased by the fact that we were in the mid-budget rooms, we got the impression that even if we had chosen the most expensive rooms, we would not have found the same relaxing experience as in the Ambassador. Overall, we would definitely recommend the Ambassador Garden Home!

Room Tip: The hotel has two types of rooms: Deluxe and Super Deluxe. We were in a Deluxe both times. I believe the main difference is in the room size since I happened to see a couple of much bigger rooms from open doors in the corridor. However our room was big enough and I thought it was cozier!

Very friendly. Right in the center of Thamel. Access by cars could be an issue. But I liked it more than another larger hotel nearby. Stayed twice here and will go back again.

A friend has recommended this hotel to me. It has a great location in the heart of Thamel. We enjoyed tea in the lounge area, there was lots of hot water and staff were friendly and helpful. Once we got there. We did have trouble making a reservation and a confirmation didn't come through until the last minute. If you have lots of time to make a booking I would recommend it with more than a "3 star" rating, but if you only have a few days to make a booking you may consider looking elsewhere.

The Ambassador Garden Home is an island of civility in the heart of Thamel. The foyer and garden restaurant were peaceful and comfortable. The coffee was good and hot, and the included breakfasts were ok also. Two computers were available for internet access. The staff was welcoming and efficient. The rooms were large and clean, and the beds were comfortable. The hotel accommodated 3 adults in one room by bringing in a comfortable portable bed. The hotel was happy to store our extra baggage during our trek, and we returned to find everything intact. It was a great place to stay, as one could walk the entire extent of Thamel from the hotel. I will use them again next time in Kathmandu.

Room Tip: choose a room at the end of the hall on the garden side to ensure space and quiet
