Thank you Ramesh

The hotel is located in a frightfully congested area - if you don't drive there, it could be perfect. We met a manager in the restaurant - Ramesh - who was very helpful - he went out of his way to support on many aspects of our Nepal stay - thank you Ramesh for your kind and professional manner. The lobby service was rather poor. They could definitely replace the flask in the room with a kettle and two cups!!

I highly recommend to all visitors of Nepal with middle income Hotel Nepalaya because: 1. It is excellent hotel, very clean, with friendly personnel and good services 2. It is in the heart of Kathmandu (Tamel) very close from all kind of historical places 3. It is in the heart of Kathmandu (Tamel) very close from all kind of shops and good restaurants with middle prices and good quality of the food 4. It is good hotel management who can provide for you all kind of therapy - starting from Aroma and Yoga (they have connection with fantastic school of Yoga where you can get short course of lessons or get consultation etc) 5. It's will be good choice if you need booking car on bus in middle price 6. It is fantastic hotel, because you can get not only your free breakfast at the restaurant located on the 7 floor balcony (or lunch and dinner by very loo price and good quality) but fantastic impressions - watching nice details of town, sunrise and sunset Have nice trip to Nepal and Kathmandu it is reappy fantastic dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a wonderful experience at Hotel Nepalaya. The room was clean and having AC was amazing in the heat. My favorite place was their rooftop restaurant where I watched the sun rise and was able to enjoy the busy city from above.

Great staff

Great hotel in Thamel, the rooms were as expected however it was the staff who really made this place great. Very welcoming from the second I walked in the door, always asking if I needed any help with anything and were helpful in providing directions and advice to find my way around Thamel. Looking forward to coming back here after some trekking to enjoy the rooftop restaurant
