Just spent a week and a half at the Utse, and they treated me like one of the family. Everyone, including owners, management and staff, were incredibly friendly and sincerely concerned about my welfare. My accommodations were top rate and the food, especially the Tibetan food, was well worth the long journey to Nepal. Their service was above and beyond...

I had arranged an airport pick-up with Hotel Utse .. was wonderfully honored & so delightfully surprised to realize Diki was there to meet & greet my late night flight along with the driver! A thoughtful basket of goodies & kind note awaited me in my sweet room. A winning combination ~ friendly peaceful vibe & welcoming five star hospitality...

I first visited the Utse in 1973 and have been returning many times over the years, it is my favourite place to be. Always a wonderful warm welcome from Diki, Ugyen and Dechen, who make you feel like family. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are clean, the food delicious and there is an atmosphere of happiness throughout...

Every time I go to Katmandu I stay at Hotel Utse. Why change? I feel just like home there and so did all my friends last April. I always feel that Dikki, her husband and daughter are sincerely happy to see me back, as if I were a member of the family! Yes, there is something special about that place....

I stayed since 8 years now at UTSE hotel. I can't imagine going in an other hotel at KTM. If you look for a welcome hotel, it's the best place. Rooms are clean, restaurant is good, and you feel comfortable like at home with the family responsible of the hotel. The staff is always nice with us and can help...

Door knob fell off in my hand, so I left while they fixed the door. Upon returning I entered and locked the door. After taking a shower I dressed and reached for the lock. I could not turn the lock, so I was locked into my own room! Of course there was no phone because there was no power. So,...

I always stay and always will stay at the Utse when I'm in Kathmandu. The family who run it make you feel like you're at home. The rooms are nicely decorated and the food in the restaurant is very good. The hotel is full of character. They have some beautiful Tibetan artefacts on display. But it's the warm welcome and...

I've been to Kathmandu, Nepal, 22 times now & I have to admit that Hotel Utse is definately the greatest place to stay in Kathmandu. Its central location, clean rooms, wonderful food & staff who can not do enough to make you feel welcome. A very safe, relaxed & family environment. Thank you for what you have created here. See...

I have been coming to Kathmandu since 1992. I have stayed in many hotels in the city, but none is better than Hotel Utse! The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food in the restaurant is very good, and the atmosphere is like coming home. I highly recommend you stay at the Utse, you won't be disappointed.

Utse Hotel is run by a lovely Tibetan family. The staff are all friendly and the family make you feel as though you are a part of their group. I have stayed at Utse four times now, and coming up for five. I would not stay anywhere else in Kathmandu - my heart belongs to Utse!
