A hotel is a deep ingrained memory – an experience to reminisce, an escapade to cherish, a secret to smile over. A certain hotel somewhere has always served the purpose of catering pleasant memories. You recall, you talk, you laugh, you cry, you ponder – you face a whole range of emotions over that “particular incident” in that “particular hotel.” Your memory is all the more enriched when something happens in a special hotel. In Kathmandu Guest House you can be assured that your memory is not a haze but a highlight that will sparkle throughout your life.
Kathmandu Guest House was a Rana mansion converted into a hotel by Karna Sakya in 1967. Starting with just 13 rooms, it has been slowly nurtured into a sprawling 121-room hotel with more than the required amenities. Today it is reputed to be an internationally acknowledged “best budget hotel”. It is the first hotel established in Thamel, which is Kathmandu’s most popular tourist destination with the highest concentration of tourism-based service outlets in Asia.
KGH has an impressive record of guest lists including famous climbers, writers, researchers and numerous world celebrities from the Beatles to Ricky Martin and Oscar winning actor Jeremy Irons. Many books, articles and reports have been written in the famous garden of KGH.
