    My first visit to Kathmandu Guest House was in 1978 on the year that I achieved the historic ascent to Everest without supplemental oxygen along with Peter Habeler. It was only a small guest house back then. I am very impressed with the progress since then. Today the KGH group has expanded to a renowned brand with 7 hotels and tour companies.

    I cordially invite you to discover Nepal with the unique service and experience of the KGH Group.

    For the past 50 years the KGH has opened up the doors to the world to a wonderful Nepalese culture with dignity, and the hotels are a symbol of warmest “Omotenashi” – hospitality. I am very honored that the KGH Hotels has become the home of my Himalayan challenges.

    A perfect place to stay in Thamel.

    The staff were simply fantastic, in particular the manager Gaurav! They were attentive to our every need and responded quickly to our requests. The breakfast is generous and diversified and the Italian restaurant makes a great pasta.

    Very much recommended 

    The central spacious internal garden yard is isolated from the busy-busy streets of the quarter and a great place to hang out. A very comfy place to relax after the spartan conditions on the trek. Very friendly and attentive staff.

    An oasis of peace in the caos of Kathmandu
    Good place to stay. An oasis of peace in the caos of Kathmandu. Good stay, good food and ambience. The garden where you can relax is one of the important things compared to other hotels and guest houses.
