Score from 169 reviews Very good
Only food was ok
No power for many hours no generator back up or they was trying to save on electricity
It is off the busy streets. But still walkable to all the shops in Thamel areas for great shopping and food. Shower was strong.
Old floor carpet.
Nice chilled atmosphere
Norbulinka is an ideal hotel for a solo traveler, a family or a couple... it has everything to please anyone. The quality of friendly staff, the food and the amazing rooms are Excellent !!! I had another reason to love it.. the hotel is a cool place for trekkers and mountaineers...every time I was in the lobby, I caught up with a mountaineer with his exciting stories. If its Kathmandu... it has to be Norbulinka.
Nothing special with with Norbulinka, its general about Kathnmandu city...the Power condition is horrible.
Good location Calm and not noisy Nice stuff Clean room and bathroom Good breakfast
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of hot water. Good rooms . Big breakfast.
LOCATION short stroll around the corner to an excellent restaurant ,shops ,bars all nearby. Breakfast was good ..returned back to this hotel after a whirlwind trip around Nepal.
Not much to complain about except as a football fan the position of the TV in the lounge ..
We had a brilliant time at Hotel Noburlinka. The staff were fantastic and the room was great. Hot water, flat screen TV, mini bar, Iron and hairdryer all already in the room. The location is just off the craziness of Thamel so nice and quiet but still only a few minutes walk. They even gave us a free transfer to the Airport. We will definitely be back.
No lift so walk up to 4th floor with bags was a challenge but more because I'm unfit!
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was substantial and the outdoor dining area very congenial.
For money it was great just a pity that barking dogs kept us up at night at early morning hours
The staff at norbulinka were very pleasant, organised a tour guide and most welcoming
The location was excellent. The place was very well run and the service was very good. If room size and single beds is not a problem this is the place to stay in Thamel.
The rooms were small with only single beds.
NICE FREE PICK UP A T THE AIRPORT GOOD BUFFET BREAKFAST GOOD LOCATION PLENTY OF HOT WATER
NOISE OF THE STAFF CLEANING AROUND EARLY MORNING WAKE ME UP EACH TIME NO FRESH JUICE ONLY BAD TASTE ORANGE ARTIFICIAL CAN JUICE
Location of the hotel is great, in the center but its quiet аrеа! Very friendly staff who provides me with attention and care! Room was clean and hot shower. Very basic breakfast but testy, and i had a dinner there , it was really delicious. It was pleasant stay at Norbulinka, hotel should be and will be recommended to other travelers.
Friendly staffs,fairly quiet location,clean bed and sheets.
Overall cealniness was not up to scratch, toilet door door could not shut properly, moulding on the wall.3* hotel ?nable?
Great breakfast Close to Thamel
Room was not very clean. When we wanted to book a taxi to Bhaktapur through the hotel we asked the staff what would be a fair price. They tried to make us pay almost 3 times the common price. (Hotel said the price was 15 dollar, on the way back we paid 6 dollar - without any negotiation).
Comfortable room (especially the bed), good location in Thamel, helpful staff.
No heater and electricity blackout every now and then (common issues in Nepal), and door lock is very basic and not strong.
Hot water, clean room and friendly service
Travel agent hassles you a lot at breakfast and will make any story fit for you.
Location of the hotel is really great: in the center but same time in a very quiet аrеа! Very friendly staff who provides us with attention and care! We felt like we are constant clients;) Room was clean and hot shower. AC worked well, our room was heated enough! Very basic breakfast but we could have supplement if we asked. We had pleasant stay at Norbulinka, hotel should be and will be recommended to other travelers.

Nice interior. Good restaurant. Breakfast starts at 5:00; it is convenient if you have an early flight. After staying in the similar priced hotel in Kathmandu we were pleasantly surprised with this one.
The location: in the middle of Thamel but still in a quiet street The staff: very helpful and welcoming The restaurant: good value for money. The room: suite was nice and very comfortable
The bathroom is kind of old.
Very clean and comfortable with an excellent bar and very good food.
