"As our original booking at some other hotel was canceled by Agoda at short notice we had to quickly book something else (while already on the way to the airport. Agoda suggested some options and one was the new Royal Penguin. We were pleasantly surprised as we found a hotel in the heart of Thamel with well-trained and very friendly staff, with with well-kept rooms (ok, the interiour design of rooms and public areas is a bit quirky but it is fun). For those who normally have to rush to beat the breakfast service deadline - this hotel is for you as it serves breakfast at any time of the day. and it offers good breakfast choices (luckily no buffet; the coffee choice could be iffy brew, though, not instant coffee). The hotel is perfectly located for those who enjoy shopping in Thamel. When you book make sure you get the new Royal Penguin, the old one, which is close by, has no lift (unless you don't mind the exercise). Although the hotel is brand new (opened in March 2014) it seems to be in high demand already. We will definitely book this hotel again."

"We made a last-minute booking because the hotel we originally checked into was not as advertised. I was so so happy as soon as we walked in because it was winter time and the lobby was nicely heated up and they had a lift which is not something most buildings in Kathmandu have. Check-in was quick and smooth, we arrived early and were allowed to go to our rooms since it was available. The room was huge and came with a king-sized bed, very well furnished and had a great bathroom and a nice warm shower. It was ULTRA clean and looked almost as though we were the first ones to ever sleep in that room. They also have their own generator which is really helpful especially when Kathmandu could experience a couple of power shortages in 1 day. We had room service that evening and their penne was on point! Breakfast was also delicious and the hotel staff were always happy to go the extra mile and stop for a chat . Definitely a place I would highly recommend! "
