We loved our stay at the Backyard Hotel! The location is great, in the middle of Thamel. The rooms were clean and spacious and the kitchen on the terrace serves the yummiest Nepali breakfasts and dinners!
What takes this hotel to the next level is the service, the staff are extremely warm and friendly and are always willing to go the extra mile for you. They are great at organising tours and treks, Siri Pokrhrel will give you the best guidance on any treks you may be planning, this man has summited Everest amongst others so is very well placed to advise on Himalayas treks, even if you are not staying at the hotel, it is worth taking the time to speak with Siri, he prices honestly and fairly for the treks and the advice he can give you is priceless.
All in all we had a wonderful time during our stay and will definitely be going back! If you are staying in Kathmandu Kathmandu, stay at the Backyard!!!!!
