Absolutely Recommended
Wonderful hotel. The exterior is especially magnificent. And the hotel is full of world-class artwork by local artists. Restaurant is top shelf. Be sure to try the Nepalese thali. Only small strike against is that the courtyard can get a little loud at night. But this is Thamel. If you are a light sleeper, you will need earplugs at any hotel is this area. 100% recommend staying here.

Hidden Gem
A hidden gem in Thamel, Kathmandu. A nice courtyard to relax in and good food and service. Felt safe here. The room was nice and clean. We had a large room with a seating area. Really enjoyed the courtyard.

Boutqiue Hotel in Heart of Tourist District
The hotel is well-situated in the tourist area of Kathmandu. Great customer service and clean room. I would have appreciated a refrigerator in the room, but not a deal breaker. One of the best breakfasts I've had at a small hotel. Overall a good experience.

Fair 4.0
I was given room on the 4th floor where there is no lift. It was tough to walk up specially. Room was clean and fairly good size however the hot water in shower was extremely hot I was burnt several times even though it was mixed with maximum cold water. Staffs were friendly and polite and they all speak very good English.

Lovely Stay in Thamel
I was instantly charmed by the courtyard of the Dalai-La. It was like a little oasis within the hustle and bustle of the touristy Thamel district. The location was convenient for sightseeing and it was close enough to the border of Thamel that one could easily grab a regular taxi rather than having to rely on the ones capable of operating in Thamel only. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and spacious.

Charming Boutique Hotel
The Dalai-La was a great choice. It's located right in the middle of the bustling area of Kathmandu but in it's private quiet area so you have the best of both. The staff was great and the breakfast was good. There is no elevator but the porters are more than willing to carry up your luggage. I would definitely return.

Fantastic hotel in a central location
This hotel has exceeded my expectations in services, comfort and food quality. The staff are extremely helpful, making sure we are well taken care of and give us good advice on logistics and recommendations. The food at the hotel was unexpectedly good too.
