A very nice hotel with friendly staff. They arranged two tours that were very interesting and rewarding. The hotel is undergoing a renovation which is needed. Our room was worn. The hotel is well situated to experience Kathmandu by walking around and feel the atmosphere and see how people live.

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting many great sights in Kathmandu. It was great to get a bath. The room was a nice size, I watched an English movie on the TV and had breakfast room service that was excellent. There are some great quirky touches in this hotel and all the staff were lovely.

Amazing place with great service and food. Very cozy, clean and so comfortable, that we didn't want to go out. The beds very super comfy - not a usual thing in travelling. Internet was the best as it can be in Kathmandu. Cozy gym, very nice decor... Oh, and the food! Very, very good. Loved every minute over there.

Great location on a quiet road in Thamel. The service was first class. The rooms are a decent size and clean. The water was filthy though. 24 hour room service. The Nepalese breakfast was delicious! It has a gym and spa but I didn't use either. Very quiet. The security guards were so friendly. I met lots of interesting people...

Cannot speak more highly of the kind, attentive staff at the RPB hotel. Loved that you can receive breakfast 24/7 in your own room! This is likely due to there being no elevator, so the room service is quite convenient. I've also never seen such an extensive room service menu - so many options. The stuffed animals (soft toys) on...
