I enjoyed Dalai la's integration and support of local artists. They have set aside part of their dining space as an impromptu gallery, allowing artists to present work and meet visitors and tourists. Dalai La also is part of Nepal 2020 tourisim campaign and had three giant 'Yeti' sculptures on display in their courtyard. Really fun place!

Absolutely Recommended
Wonderful hotel. The exterior is especially magnificent. And the hotel is full of world-class artwork by local artists. Restaurant is top shelf. Be sure to try the Nepalese thali. Only small strike against is that the courtyard can get a little loud at night. But this is Thamel. If you are a light sleeper, you will need earplugs at any hotel is this area. 100% recommend staying here.

A hidden gem in Thamel, Kathmandu. A nice courtyard to relax in and good food and service. Felt safe here. The room was nice and clean. We had a large room with a seating area. Really enjoyed the courtyard.

Boutqiue Hotel in Heart of Tourist District
The hotel is well-situated in the tourist area of Kathmandu. Great customer service and clean room. I would have appreciated a refrigerator in the room, but not a deal breaker. One of the best breakfasts I've had at a small hotel. Overall a good experience.
