Because of a bad belly I had to spend a lot of time in the hotel room. We booked a standard double room with a bathroom. It was clean and everything is good to use. The bed is pretty hard, I like it. No back pain even after two days of laying down. The bathroom is simple but clean. There...

Stayed here for a few nights whilst in Kathmandu and was impressed. Room was nice and big with a Tv with cable channels and fast wifi. Shower was nice and hot throughout the day and evening. Centrally located with lots of shops and restaurants around. The only issue was noise and to be fair that wasn't the hotels fault but...

We stayed in the Holy Lodge as walk-in guests for one week. It's a great central location right within all the shops in Thamel. We had a nice big clean room with a big clean bathroom and proper toilet (not squat). Best feature was the really hot water shower, too hot to stand under without adding cold water. The three...

Had to tell them 3 times to put in a lightbulb, still no lightbulb in the toilet. Far from what the pictures looked like. Spend...

Stayed here before / after trip to Chitwan national park as central thamel location. Very cheap accomodation. Rooms were quite dirty, sheets and towels had stains (one towel had blood stain on it), no toilet paper, very noisy on a weekend night with thumping music surrounding the whole lodge. The communal breakfast and reception area smelt like urine. Breakfast very...

The perfect place to start our trip in Nepal was the Holy Lodge, via email they had organised transport from the airport for us, which was great since it was my first time in the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. The following morning during our delicious breakfast, we were fortunate enough to meet Madhukar. He went out of his way...
