Great value, comfy rooms, excellent service and very good restaurant
The first room we stayed in smelled like mildew. The second room we stayed in was better, but there seemed to be a leak from the toilet spray nozzle.
Staff all the way Location Food
A bit expencive. Noisy location.
The choice for breakfast is huge and can be served at whatever time of the day.
Location is very good for onward air travel within Nepal, but not so good for seeing kathmandu.
Proximity to airport, friendly staff, comfortable room, good wifi, good value for money, and nice food.
Too expensive, no lift to level 4, bathroom too old, over priced private driver,
I stayed for 9 nights, very confertable room with balcony facing Thamel main road, clean rooms with all facilities, complementary breakfast was awesome and available anytime of the day. Staffs were very Attentive and help full. Overall the stay was very nice. Management should look into the hot water issue in the bathrooms as it takes 10-15 minutes to get hot water in the taps and until then the water is wasted by keeping the taps open.
The hotel could have lift,other wise difficult for old people to climb up by stirr.
Location, staff behavior, comfort & clean ness.
WiFi was abit inconsistent in connection quality and speed.
Staff were fantastic. Loved the great atmosphere due to small thing such as the plush animals, the lights and the mirrors.
room service, car rent
No elevator. Low water pressure that takes a while to heat up. It would be great to have the rooms swept/vacuumed daily.
Comfy rooms. Clean gym. Clean common area. Great location. Complimentary shuttle to/from airport. Attentive staff. Nice bar/restaurant. Complimentary breakfast that is delicious and available 24 hrs. Huge complimentary bottles of water. Currency conversion available on site. Free working wi-fi. Nice TV channels. Safe and secure feeling. Overall, this hotel has a great vibe.
the interior is horrible kitsch, the wooden chairs and interior in the restaurant and the entree are hurting the eye and taste for beauty. Also the room has a strange interior, very unusual to the usual hotelrooms. I didn't like the 'paintings' in the hotel. The interior could do with a make over.
The room is very comfortable once you get used to the unusual design. The approach of having a stuffed toy in the room, or at your dinnertable is so funny, as is the national flag they place in your room and on the dinnertable. restaurant staff were very friendly and happy. The food is fine. the hotel provides airport transfer, which is very convenient.
hotel was in a great location. The only negative this is that we booked the penthouse which is up 5 flights of stairs, No lift!! But apart from that everything was amazing, great food and service and everything at your door Step. I will visit again for sure.
Attention to detail in rooms and amazing staff. Plus a great coffee menu!
The location was mid town & well connected. But there was all kinds of weird people around, mostly hippy type.
On first arrival, the hotel looked shabby with not so clean beds & dirty cups. But upon request, these were changed immediately. Customer service was excellent. Food was good too. Free wifi was reasonable.
This is an amazing, clean hotel right in the center of the tourist area of Kathmandu. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfasts are almost best I've ever had. The spa facilities are clean and new. The room is just amazing - cosy and with the most comfortable bed you can imagine. This hotel made my stay in Kathmandu really enjoyable! Will stay there again for sure.
Rooms could do with a bit less furniture. Other than that, nothing negative to say.
Helpful staff, great location and fab breakfast. Really enjoyed our stay.
Wi-fi connection was sometimes a bit temperamental.
The hotel is close to all the attractions of Thamel and near to many different places to eat. Clean, quirky and friendly. I would definitely recommend the Royal Penguin.
-breakfast without buffet -wi fi wery difficult -there are two penguin and the pictures on booking are of penguin 2, the new one. We were in a very small room in the old penguin, no value for the payed money
penguin 1 ready for a slight refurb in bathrooms so it matches penguin 2 but still best in Kathmandu for overall package.
service staff breakfast location
The best place to stay in Kathmandu !!!
The superior room is to small
The Food is very excellent
Bathroom had a strong smell.
Great location, 24 hour service including food. Quirky options.
Location was great. Beds very comfortable. Very individual decor. Many added extras in the room including bathrobes. Additional extras such as fresh flowers could be ordered.
There is an extra charge of 3.5% if paid by credit card, but I were not informed until check out.
Little expensive compare to room size
