My family and I stayed at Hotel Nepalaya in December 2016. What an amazing way to begin and cap our trip to Nepal. The owner of the hotel, DB, greeted us personally. The rooms are large and airy. And the rooftop terrace is to die for with sweeping views of Kathmandu and the majestic Himalayas in the background. The food...

Amazing panoramic view of Kathmandu on the rooftop where you can enjoy the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner ! Nice position, just 10sec from the main street of Thamel. Rooms are basic but nice and clean. I recommend this hotel.

Hotel Nepalaya is a great choice for solo traveler. It is very quiet during the night and very close to the airport. The staffs working in here are friendly and fluent in English, there's no need to worry about the communication.

I would highly recommend staying at Hotel Nepalaya! Located in the heart of town it's an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The staff are helpful and friendly and can organise bus trips and places to see. The roof top bar and restaurant is definitely a place to unwind after a long flight. Ten out of ten!!!

Nepalaya is a great little hotel situated in the middle of Thamel and close to everything a tourist needs. The rooms are clean, the staff is professional and courteous, and the roof top bar and restaurant has very nice views and good food.

Hotel Nepalaya was a safe haven amongst the bustling touristy Thamel district. All the comforts of home, a roof top bar and even organized our Base camp trip for us. Extremely reasonable price, there's no reason to stay anywhere else.

Hotel Nepalaya was first class in this country it had every extra you would get here. The food on the top floor view was good it was worth the money and although basic the staff tried hard! Also the power went off at 6pm and torches were use after this the roads were dangerous and trips relied on the bus...

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
