Holyland Guest House
Ranked #67 of 458 Kathmandu B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 April 2015

We stayed here before and after trekking. We only came back the second time because we had stored our things with the guesthouse. The staff are ok. Nothing special about the service good or bad. The room was fairly average and there was hair in the bed so I'm not sure whether they had changed the sheets. But hey, after travelling for so long through Asia we had lost all worry about new sheets. The bathroom door did close so when we had shower the carpet got wet which was gross. When we did return from trekking we were told that there would be hot water then there wasn't so I asked and was informed that they were still pumping water and when the pump was finished it would take 2 hours to heat (10pm). We were a little annoyed about this as we had spent the day travelling and hadn't showered in about 10 days. But what can you do, its Nepal! Anyway, 10pm came and no hot water so then we were told that there would be no hot water until the next morning. In the end we just had to suck it up and shower in the morning. It was less the service and more they didn't really care. Maybe they are use to dirty grumpy customers. Over all the guesthouse isn't that great. Its dark and kind of dirty. There are better places to go with a nicer feel to them.

Room Tip: wifi breaks-up a lot

Literally an easy walk to everything - restaurants, shopping and even sight seeing. Clean rooms, friendly staff, hot water, wi-fi (even when the power is out), beautiful rooftop where you can sit and read, have tea or breakfast.

This is basic accommodation but if you're backpacking it's absolutely fine. The bed was hard but comfy, there was always hot water in the shower. They served reasonably priced breakfasts on the roof. When on the roof you couldn't hear the traffic from Thamel. This was a lovely place to relax. The wifi was hit and miss, but it was like this everywhere in Nepal. I would recommend ear plugs at night as some of the places near by can be a little noisy. Also if they try to add an additional service charge when you leave for the accommodation, refuse to pay it politely and they were fine. Just be prepared. Oh and bring your own toilet paper as they do not supply any in any of the rooms!

Very good guest house with good guys who are always ready to help. It happened i had to stay in Kathmandu alone for a long time and i stayed in Holyland. I had a good service and help when it is needed, was treated with hospitality and even had dinner together with guys from here on Diwali night on the beautiful rooftop. Good location, close to nice restaurants and bars, and some sightseeing.. The room was with hot shower, tv and sockets for charging devices=) Highly recommended... and it is not expensive! Even had some discount from the boss on Diwali=)))))
