Dhulikhel Lodge Resort
Modern but built in a vaguely traditional style, this place has cracking views (particularly from the top-floor rooms) and the great circular fireplace in the bar provides an après-ski atmosphere, while the coffee bar is equally inviting.
The Dwarika's Hotel
For stylish design and sheer romance, this outstanding hotel is unbeatable; if you’re on honeymoon, look no further...
Hotel Ganesh Himal
Our pick for comfort on a budget is this well-run and friendly place, located a 10-minute walk southwest of Thamel – far enough to be out of range of the tiger-balm salesmen but close enough to restaurants for dinner...
There’s nowhere in town quite like this creaky former Rana palace – the kind of place where you expect some whiskered old Rana prince to come shuffling around one of the wooden corridors...
Hotel Yak & Yeti
This hotel is probably the best known in Nepal, due to its connections with the near-legendary Boris Lissanevitch, its original owner...
Kathmandu Guest House
The KGH is a bit of an institution. A former Rana palace, it was the first hotel to open in Thamel and still serves as the central landmark. Everyone from Jeremy Irons to Ricky Martin has stayed here...
Gokarna Forest Resort
Top-of-the-line accommodation is provided in this sublimely peaceful former-Meridien property. Wicker furniture and dark timber lends a colonial feel, and the surrounding forest is alive with deer and monkeys...
Ambassador Garden Home
Right in the eye of the Thamel storm but surprisingly peaceful, this place has splashes of style in the rooms and a nice garden and lobby reading area. Avoid the noisy east-facing rooms above the pub...
Kantipur Temple House
Hidden down an alley on the edge of the old town, at the southern end of Jyatha, this Newari-temple-style hotel has been built with meticulous attention to detail...
Patan’s only truly top-end hotel, the Himalaya is the haunt of wealthy businessmen and Nepali wedding parties. Expect lots of marble, concierge service and comfortable, well-appointed rooms that are arranged around a pool.
Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge
Run by the same team as Tiger Tops in Chitwan, this top-end lodge is set on the southern edge of the buffer zone. Accommodation is in stylish Tharu-style cottages near Thakurdwara...
Fish Tail Lodge
Reached by a rope-drawn pontoon from Basundhara Park, Fish Tail is charmingly understated and Heritage rooms are housed in low slate-roofed bungalows in a lush tropical garden...
Tucked away on a narrow road to Potters’ Sq, you might not get views here, but this business-chic hotel definitely lives up to its name, with sparkling rooms, lovely big beds, bathtubs and double-glazed windows...
Shiva Guest House
A well-maintained place on Durbar Sq with comfy rooms and a heartfelt welcome. Ask for a corner room if you want a view. Discounts of 20% are available from December to August.
Hotel At The End Of The Universe
As well as a great name, this eclectic resort offers an intriguing selection of cottages, bamboo cabins and gingerbread-style cottages, set in a verdant garden. The gigantic suites have multiple bedrooms and huge lounges – perfect for families...
Chitwan Tiger Camp
A popular choice, Tiger Camp has welcoming staff, experienced jungle guides and an excellent location on sunset point. The budget rooms are downstairs and fairly standard, while the upstairs rooms with tubs and bamboo decor are worth the extra rupees...
Durbar Guest House
Close to Sundhara Tole, this place is set back from the road behind a statue shop. Rooms are not too exciting but they are functional and cheap.
Trek O Tel
Subtlety is the watchword at this smart modern hotel located in Lakeside East. Everything is tasteful and understated and rooms are housed in octagonal stone blocks in a pretty garden...
Hotel Travel Inn
Although catering for all budgets, even the cheapest rooms are spotless. It’s worth the step up to deluxe for the comfy beds and bathtubs...
Hotel Peace Plaza
This centrally located, modern four-storey building comprises spotless rooms (many with lake views) with soft beds, a desk, a bar fridge and satellite TV. Some also have a bathtub. And there’s a bright restaurant/cafe downstairs.
Spread over four villas, Butterfly Lodge has clean, big rooms (some are designated non-smoking), and there’s a lovely lawn with banana lounges. Staff are very helpful and some of the money goes to the Butterfly Foundation supporting local children.
South of Uku Bahal, this comfortable midrange hotel is a spin-off from a metal workshop and the owners have filled it with an outrageous bestiary of statues...
