I stayed here for 3 nights in November 2013. The Valley Guesthouse has moved to a new temporary location, while they are building a new guesthouse. Very friendly staff. Simple, but good breakfast buffet. Best value for money in this area. Guesthouse is now in Ramhiti Chowk, behind Bouddha Stupa. See their website for exact location.

I went recently to Valley GH to inquire about a room for a visitor who wil come to Boudha in July. The staff told me the hotel is closing at the end of the month, though they hope to re-open in a new location.

I stayed here for two weeks, one week in a suite on the second floor and one in a regular room on the fourth floor. If you can afford the suite, I'd recommend it, but the regular rooms are very small. Bathrooms are good; they've been updated. Stairs are dark during "power shedding" times, and the backup generator wasn't always...

I stayed here for a night recently and it was fine. My room was big and had hot water (always a plus in KTM). Staff were helpful, there was a drinking bottle water refiller for 10 rps (again always useful in Nepal) and breakfast included in cost which was buffet-style. Building very clean and large. However at 1200 rps for...

Spent one night at this beautiful guest house in April 2013. What really impressed me was the quality of the facility for the budget price, and the cleanliness . The breakfast was very good and included in the rate of my room. Unfortunately I had to cut my visit short as this popular guest house was full and I had...

The valley guest house is not fancy, but it has frills anyway. Great staff, good food, superlative location, and a wonderful rooftop that calls out for you to spend time on it. In winter it's cold; and the water and electricity suffer from general Kathmandu problems, but that's Kathmandu. The Valley Guest house makes the best of things, has the...

Great location and a very good breakfast included. But the budget rooms are on the dark side of the building and can be cold and moisty. You might have to ask for an extra blanket in the dry/winter season. The large sun-side rooms are not really budget rooms. Rooftop terrace is a great place, nice Stupa view, and can be...

This guesthouse is clean and has nice rooms. From the rooftop terrace you can overlook Kathmandu, and see the Boddhanath stupa. The location is great because of the atmosphere around this stupa, and it is quiet at night :) The only downside is that half of the personnel is not really friendly. They seem to care more about their laptop...

The location of this guesthouse is virtually unbeatable. It is very close to Boudhanath and not too far from Pashupatinath. The staff are wonderful and the facilities are quaint and comfortable. I visit Kathmandu often and can't imagine staying anywhere else for as long as budget is of any concern (likely, forever).

The Valley Guesthouse has a great location and pretty reasonable price range. We stayed in the "large apartment", which was very spacious. This would be a great place to stay for a couple of days during a warm time of year, but it seemed like the longer we stayed the more chance there was for things to go wrong -...
