The hotel is very centrally located in Kathmandu with walking distance to the market and eating joints. Not to forget..one can walk down to the Darbar. However, it seemed that it is slightly expensive with its architecture and room comfort.

This hotel is a landmark in Kathmandu. However the rooms are tired. Beds are not as comfortable, bathroom is extremely basic. Modern travellers with tons of gadgets will struggle to charge their devices. The biggest let down was the breakfast. The spread is pretty wide but lets not talk about the taste. What works for this hotel is its location, Durbar Marg. This is the heart of Kathmandu and a step away from all the activities. Will I return? Most definitely not.

The few things going for this hotel are the location, the garden, and the service. Otherwise hotel seems tired, dated and unkempt. Showers are sad, rooms half decent. But the service is exemplary. Food is good, maybe not the buffet, but a-la-carte is fine. For the longest time I remember, they serve poori/aloo and Chana/bhatoora on alternate days. Both being North Indian food delicacies. Hope the management refurbishes and focuses on this hotel.

Despite the corny name, suggesting backpacker style and quality, this is actually one of the top hotels for Kathmandu. Located close to airport and big tourist attractions. Staff is helpful and basically great, breakfast and lunch superb, the bar has a great selection of cocktails. Rooms are OK, bit old but acceptable. Enjoyed the Finnish sauna at the spa and a shave at the barbershop.

The room was huge and very comfortable, the staff were very helpful. The pool was too cold but there are tennis courts. It feels like entering a scene from an Indiana Jones film - truly colonial and otherworldly.

I stayed here in the Spring as part of a group; two visits of several days each before and after a trip to Everest.

Overall I would say this is a very good choice in Kathmandu and I would stay here again - It's certainly an oasis in the middle of a dusty, noisy hubbub..

We booked some excursions through the hotel travel company and they were fantastic. It's expensive but the best hotel in the area.

A beautiful property from the outside, with lovely lawns and spacious interiors, its rooms could do with some much-needed refurbishment. Being a five-star establishment, everything was too damn expensive. :) Breakfast was sumptuous, with Chinese, Indian and continental spreads. Good for a business trip, otherwise you are better off staying in a smaller, cheaper establishment (there are plenty in Kathmandu's Thamel district).

Kathmandu is a difficult city to visit, so it was very nice to come back to the oasis of the Yak & Yeti at the end of everyday. The entire staff is very helpful, particularly Guest Services. Always, with a smile they dealt with all my impossible requests

I was looking forward to stay here. One morning i wake up..i had huge allergy because of their carpet/ moquettes. So it was a bad stay. Room furnitures were very much dated and tv aint workin well. Bath got yellow water but well its nepal. Its crowy lobby and bfast as well. Many manpower but not much motivated workers. Its has good size garden and good bed though. Hotel needs a lifting and new furnitures.

As a member of the Nirvana health club, and a local resident, I can say that as far as 5-sstar hotels go in KTM, this is my favorite. All the facilities are here, but what makes the place is the great staff. Fantastic! .

We stayed right in the heart of Kathmandu near (but not in) the bustling touristy area of Thamel. Yak and Yeti was perfect as it was a quiet respite with a large gated courtyard with trees and flowers and a pool. An island in the midst of chaos. all day buffet offered fantastic choices of food with fresh fruit, vegetables and different ethnic cuisines. Slightly expensive but well worth it. Excellent service.

The best calm hotel in Kathmandu, away from hustle bustle. The hotel is so so beautiful well maintained and well planned. Full of greenery and very close to nature. Rooms are nice and staff is extra helping and sweet in nature. Always ready to help. Swimming pool adds to it's value.

Very nice hotel which after trekking in the Himalayas for three weeks felt like a ten star hotel ! Nice staff and spacious bedrooms with good bathrooms, bar area nice with good gardens and a swimming pool though not many chairs and tables in the garden. The hotel is in very spacious grounds away from the chaos of Kathmandu but ask for a room overlooking the gardens at the rear to avoid the nightclub which plays loud music at the front.

As various reviewers have noted, this hotel is centrally located, expansive, and convenient. It has restaurants, pool, spa, health club, convention center and a Casino as well. However, the wing I stayed in was looking slightly run down; possible because it is an old hotel. The service levels were excellent and the staff was very responsive. Allin all, it is a very good hotel.

We had a night here at each end of our trip to Bhutan. It is a big, smart hotel but the first room we had was a little bit shabby ....possibly because it was in the older part of the hotel. The second room, on our return 3 weeks later, was bright, clean and very pleasant. It was also in the newest part of the hotel. The hotel is well placed centrally in Kathmandu within easy walking distance of the main sights. It also has an excellent garden and outdoor pool if you just want to relax after the ... Read more

Yak and Yeti hotel is great for getting away from the hectic streetlife of Kathmandu. The private park with pool and walking path is nice. The food is good (bufé restaurant) and breakfast is really good. Coming back from a trek in the Everest region, sleeping in good beds and eating good food was excellent. The staff was really helpful and the location good (15 min walk from Thamel district). Shopping street right outside the hotel.

This is a wonderfully done flagship hotel in the city. The rooms are good and some of the facilities such as conference rooms are done in very elegant way in gothic style. The quality of services varies. For example, the food served during lunch in its Sunrise restaurant was average on day 1 but much improved on day 2. I was a bit surprised how such drastic variation happens. Day3, it was fine. The items they do well are Indian Dals and Cottage cheese preparations but breads are dampener. Menu, ... Read more

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Yak & Yeti, when arriving and when leaving Kathmandu. We enjoyed very much Yak & Yeti for its quietness, good location, clean rooms and helpfulness of the staff. The first room we have was a small studio/suite, which was more modern and clean than the 2nd room with a queen bed, in the older portion. We had twice the Saturday brunch, with an impressive choice of Indian, western and arabic foods. We were stunned by the level of variety and attention given to ... Read more

Simply amazing! From our transfer to the hotel to complimentary drinks and evening canapés, yak and yeti did not disappoint. We stayed here before embarking on Everest base camp and our stay was just what we needed before the long trek. If you want to enjoy uncompromising customer service with friendly staff and amazing fascilities, I highly recommend a night or two at this Nepalese gem. A big shout out to Bhakta - an amazing man with incredible knowledge!

I stay their for 5 nights and I did not even get a toothbrush and toothpaste.

Hotel staff are not friendly and they did not even greet you , they will just look at you. My overall hotel staying experience is unsatisf... Read more
