The Baber Mahal is a beautiful hotel and a unique place to stay. We were only there for 1 night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and many thanks to Rupesh for kindly accommodating us with our departure. I hope to return to Kathmandu for a longer stay at the Baber Mahal.

I’ve stayed in the Baber Mahal twice over the past three months when in Kathmandu for business. I tried a few hotels and settled on this as my favourite. It’s quiet (which is something in Kathmandu), the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff are super friendly and overall, felt like a home away from home.

Great! Here's a review of Hotel Barahi, located in Thamel: Hotel Barahi, nestled in the vibrant Thamel neighborhood, is a delightful hotspot offering a blend of warmth, elegance, and hospitality. The ambiance exudes a welcoming charm, with tastefully decorated interiors that create a cozy atmosphere for guests to unwind. The restaurant's culinary offerings are a highlight, featuring a diverse menu that caters to various palates. From authentic Nepali delicacies to international favorites, each dish is thoughtfully prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, ensuring a memorable dining experience. The service at Hotel Barahi is exemplary, with attentive staff members who go above and beyond to cater to guests' needs. Whether it's recommending dishes, accommodating special requests, or providing prompt service, the staff ensures that every visit is met with utmost satisfaction. The staff member Captain supervisor Sunil and the front office sanskritee helped for my dinner which made my day they were very generous and mainly sanskritee recommend me this place which I found out to be one of my best experiences. Overall, Hotel Barahi in Thamel stands out as a premier dining destination, combining delectable cuisine, inviting ambiance, and exceptional service to create a memorable experience for patrons. Whether you're a local or a traveler exploring Kathmandu, a visit to Hotel Barahi is sure to leave a lasting impression.

I had a completely pleasurable, relaxing, engaging experience at Baber Mahal Villas. From the charm and delight of the buildings to the perfect, helpful, gracious, friendly, diligent staff, to the comfort and elegance of the well appointed, tasteful rooms, to the several restaurants and interesting shops, Baber Mahal Villas literally has it all. I loved it so much that I brought friends back the night after I checked out, so that Rupes, a superb, knowledgeable member of the management team, could give them his fascinating tour and explanation of the history and appointments of the buildings. It was great fun, and my friends even got to see a traditional Nepali dance selection from the larger program I enjoyed the night before. If you’re looking to enjoy a slice of Nepali history and culture and stay in elegant surroundings full of story, character, and charm, then Baber Mahal Villas is the place for you!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would unequivocally give it the highest possible ranking for its exceptional comfort and distinctive character. Our three-night experience felt like a true embodiment of a boutique hotel, aligning seamlessly with the finest traditions seen in the United States. As a Heritage hotel, it not only offers luxurious comfort but also boasts a rich history that adds an extra layer of charm to the entire ambiance. The meticulous restoration work has beautifully revived the essence of its heritage, creating a visually stunning and historically significant atmosphere. Positioned adjacent to a variety of shops and restaurants that open to an interior courtyard, the hotel's location enhances accessibility to local amenities and contributes to a charming overall setting. The room, featuring a spacious layout and a balcony, was a delightful retreat. The added touch of the room opening to the library on the second floor added an element of sophistication and tranquility to the overall experience. While the staff was friendly, it's worth noting that such warmth is expected from the hospitable people of Katmandu. Overall, my stay was exceptional, and I highly recommend this hotel to those seeking a perfect blend of comfort, history, and boutique elegance.

We felt warmly welcomed the moment we arrived. Our large room was beautifully furnished, clean, and very comfortable. Original and historic artwork, photographs, paintings, and sculptures adorn the walls throughout. There are numerous facilities to make use of around the spacious hotel including a library from which I borrowed to read the spectacular "Ladakh" photobook in our room. The buffet breakfast had a good variety of food, and the one evening we ate in was likewise, a very good buffet. Overall I would say Baber Mahal Vilas offers a classy experience away from the hubbub of Kathmandu.

Wonderful staff of the hotel. The hotel itself is amazing which opens a window to the history of Nepal. This is truly a heritage hotel of Nepal. It is clean with a nice breakfast. Lovely fishes in the center of the hotel yard calm your mind. I am grateful that I met Abhipsa, Sudikshya, and Sweety - they are excellent managers working at the registration. They are are very helpful to support anytime and talk about their culture and traditions. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel with distinct architectural style.

Smiling and courteous staff made my wife and I feel like their most welcomed guests. Hotel property is a visual delight fashioned from historic architecture, surrounded by a labyrinth of boutique shops and dining, all within a few steps. Rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet offers ample variety. Room service delivered a smashing late evening dinner. A special shout-out goes to Sudikshya and Abhipsa at the front desk for their professional and friendly service that made our stay at Baber Mahal Vilas so extra special. Why anyone would choose to stay anywhere else in Kathmandu is beyond me?
