I found this hotel through Mr. Milan who i booked my everest base camp trek with. Both his trekking company (Himalayan Spirit Adventure) and this hotel are top notch! Staff was very comforting, let me keep me stuff in a secure room for 10 days for free, and has an excellent restaurant/bar on rooftop (along with a great view). The...

Being a humanitarian emergency worker, the hotel first looked very risky, with Nepal having a high risk of earthquakes. Aside from that, it was a wonderful stay for me and my wife. Perfect budget hotel. The rooms are clean, 24hrs hot water. The staff are really nice. They are OK to go the extra mile to make your holiday experience...

We booked this hotel before we arrived.I was told that it would have hot water permanently. It did and the showers were hot. This is quite a big hotel with a roof top dining area. We payed $30 AUS a night. There wasn't anything extra special about here than if we stayed elsewhere in Thamel. It is clean, quiet, computer...

This hotel is perfect if you want to stay o n busy, nosy Thamel. On the southern end it's sort of quiet, close to all the noise but not in it. Great hot shower, comfortable bed, good Wi-Fi, reasonably priced. Not 5 star but why I rated it with 5 stars was because of the very kind, attentive, yet discreet...

For the tired , weary traveler on a budget, there is no better place than Hotel Nepalaya. Comfortable, private rooms with showers that get really hot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sincerely warm welcome from Hotel Nepalaya…where hospitality comes from the heart…It’s a special Peace down here & your Environment Friendly Stay will be just like it is at home…We are known to be the best rated hotel in Kathmandu…& you’ve got to live here to know it…Hotel Nepalaya is known for its warm hospitality, & we are right in the heart of the Thamel city. The hotel offers fantastic valley views from its ‘temple of heaven’ rooftop restaurant. The Langtang, Ganesh Himal and Dorjelakpa mountain views from our rooftop is just amazing. You will find Rickshaws and taxi stands just a stone’s throw from our hotel, which is a 4 min walking distance to the major shopping areas, restaurants & bars of sizzling Thamel, & hardly 7 kilometers to get to get to the airports and only 3 kilometers to the bus stands. You will enjoy a wonderful peace of mind once you get in into the hotel as thamel is always a crowded, noisy and hustling place for tourists.Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal, a tiny Himalayan landlocked Country in Asia which offers possibilities of vibrant cultures and its smiling people. Kathmandu is the only city connected by air to the major international towns scattered all over Nepal. Whether you are looking for rich culture and people, history, a Himalayan adventure getaway for walking, trekking, climbing, white water rafting, elephant safari to the One Horn Rhino & Bengal Tiger in natural parks and outdoor holidays in the broadest sense of the word... Nepal has it all! You don’t need to go anywhere else.The Hotel Nepalaya on the other hand is a hotel of Nepal’s cultural landscapes. Here you will find smiling welcoming staff that enjoys their work & a sunny garden for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, 24 hour power backup, FREE WIFI and computers, 24 hours security, & rooms well furnished with modern amenities, and our staff is happy to provide you with all the information you need to enjoy your stay in Kathmandu! ... more   less
