“Great Spot in Thamel without the crazyness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

The Hotel is located in a lane way behind one of the main sreets in Thamel. This gives it a great location but with some peace and quiet away from the crazy streets.
The hotel was clean and the service was really good. The staff were knowledgeable and went out of their way to help out when we had a question.
There was free wifi and some computers with internet access.
My only issue was the generator was located below my room so I was woken a few times in the night when the power had gone out and the generator kicked in, but this is part of life in Kathmandu really and hard to complain about.
Overall it was in a good spot in which to explore the city.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We arrived Kathmandu rather late and it's good that the pick-up service was available.

We were arranged to a room at 2/F, which was facing the inner street. It was indeed quite noisy with the crowds talking loudly from 7am or so.

The TV did not work and the towels did not seem to be very clean. We used our own towels.

Breakfast was of very limited selection. Better go to the cafe and restaurants nearby, e.g. Gaia.

We left our personal belonging there and they were very nice and kept them for us till we returned from Pokhara. This definitely deserved a credit.

With its rate, I think it shouldn't be difficult to find a hotel with better facilities in Kathmandu.

Room Tip: Reserve rooms at higher levels

The hotel perfectly suites for a middle class family and has facilities like free wireless internet, desktop computers with internet connection , a TV with lots of channels, a/cheater and excellent room service. Ample space to keep your luggage and wooden flooring which was really cool during the winter. They do provide additional comforter upon request.The hotel is situated in a place where u have all the facilities withing walking distance. One negative point which I would like to share is that the food menu is not so great for lunch and dinner and this is probably since they have a very good restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: just check for the rooms facing the himalayas as its a excellent view from there.

Hotel Himalaya is a great choice for hotel in Kathmandu. It is clean, well kept, friendly staff, and has the feel of an American hotel, which is refreshing after being in the mountains/community service project as I had been for the last 2 weeks before I stayed there.

The area is bustling, with a mind-boggling amount of shops/places to explore that are all in very close distance to the hotel, but you do not get the overwhelming Asian-city-living sense when you're on the property.

Lastly, I had not been able to check email or be on the internet in over 3 weeks and they were very accommodating in providing me computers with fast internet connection...as well as a steady flow of very reasonably priced beers while I browsed.

Please hits all of the pros that you'd want in a downtown Kathmandu hotel, with none of the cons.

Room Tip: I slept alone in a room that had 3 nice beds in it, so it felt like a waste, but I'm not particu...

It's located in mid of market and you can walk to any shops downtown Kathmandu. It's just one block away from busy street. Quiet enough during the night. I came in with family in January 2012, and stayed for 2 days. The price is pretty good. Lobby is a little cold. Love the free internet even the signal strength poor @ 2nd floor. Breakfast food is so- so. I recommend you can walk to Gaia just 30 meters right out of the hotel for breakfast, roughly ~3USD per person. Would like to re- stay next time when I re- visit Kathmandu.

Room Tip: Any room is quiet enough as the hotel is off busy treet.
