Glacier Hotel & Spa
Ranked #4 of 106 Hotels in Pokhara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Owner rajendra dhakal is the dynamic force behind the delightful Hotel Glacier and it has been a pleasure to watch him work his magic on three successive visits: Oct. '09, Jan. '10, and Oct.'11. What exactly do i like about this hotel? First, its excellent location just steps away from the lake. Then, comfortable rooms with good beds, hot water, tubs for soaking, cable t.v., free water, room service, even fresh flowers. Third, an excellent breakfast included in the price of the room and served on a cozy porch overlooking the lake. Next, an excellent trekking service to help with plans and permits and guides and porters. And finally the uncommonly good staff , friendly, well-trained and hardworking. My friend and i had a fantastic trek, then we accompained Rajendra to his family home for the Bhai Tika celebration at the end of Tihar, Festival of Lights. Excellent Ayurveda massages as well. It was such a great trip that just writing about it makes me want to go back in 2012!

Room Tip: If you go in winter, ask for a room with a tub.

We had a deluxe room (free upgrade from lovely Mr Rajendra Dhakal the owner) and it was lovely. Free fruit & water in room & rating this room on Nepal standards (not European, it's not fair) it ranks 10/10. Super service & room service. I highly recommend Hotel Glacier to people visiting Pokhara who want a bit of comfort & luxury.

The first time we stayed in Pokhara it was 10 dollars a night.We came back a few years later and it was 40 dollars a night.So we found the Iceland guest house which is 10 dollars a night and way better.Truthfully ,if the Glacier Hotel were still 10 dollars a night,we would still go to the Iceland guest house.Also The Glacier Hotels trekking agency is not in this world price wise. Have fun in Nepal.

This review is a little late, but they deserve a good shout out so here I am.

The manager/owner of this place is great, and very helpful. The rooms are well appointed and the location is central. The onsite massage is very very good.

I stayed here for a couple of nights in April 2011 and while I do not plan on returning to Nepal, if I did I would definitely stay here again.

Imagine clean cozy room, warm shower, nice breakfast, beautiful garden and good service when you just finish 10 day ABC trekking. This is an ideal place for all trekkers to settle down and enjoy lakeside peaceful time. Will come back. For sure.

Good location where is near the lakeside, there is many shops and restaurants nearby. The staffs working in the Glacier hotel is very helpful and friendly. Before I visit Nepal, I wrote email to the hotel, they gave us good advices and helped planing our Itinerary. The reply is quick and try their best to meet our requirements! The room is clean and comfortable. We stayed 3 nights in Glacier Hotel. One night before trekking. They explained clearly about the trekking. After trekking, we tried their message and it is very good. So there is no doubt to recommend my friends to stay this hotel!
