    The Hotel is excellent in limited budget. The staffs were very nice. They provided us everything we needed. The room was air conditioned and comfortable enough. We enjoyed satellite channels on tv. The breakfast was included in room price and it was really decent breakfast. We had omelet, bread with Jam and Butter, tea or coffee. Even sometimes we ordered Indian food for breakfast. The hotel also provides laundry service in very cheap cost. I would specially mention the service of the staffs. They cleaned the room whenever we requested them. The whole hotel has free Wifi internet facilities and the speed is very good. The hotel is also located in a very nice place. Shopping malls, restaurants, movie theaters and night clubs are very close to the hotel. Even the hotel management provides services like trekking, mountain climbing, city tour and any other thing you would like to do in cheap cost. I would specially like to thank Mr. Bhanu Dhakal for arranging our marriage according to Hindu religion and Nepali social customs. If you want to get married according to Nepal culture, then contact to Mr. Bhanu Dhakal. Once again, thanks to Mr. Bhanu Dhakal and his team for making our stay in Nepal really memorable.

    The hotel should have lunch and dinner facilities.

    Main interest of staying there is feeling of home away from home as the hotel staff are very friendly , polite and hospitality is very good . Food is very homely food .This was my second stay at that hotel & try to stay there whenever possible .

  • Group of friends

    What I like most during our stay was the hospitability, kindness, honesty and very accommodating staff. Their service is really good like a 5 star hotel. I t was really indeed a nice stay. Thanks especially to Sabin and staff. Regards, Catherine Cabrera

    Nice and quiet location, although in the center of mad Kathmandu. Basic but good room and bathroom. Hot water. Good breakfast

    Do not expect anything special.

    Good hotel overall that suited our purpose of the visit perfectly. It is a no-frills, unpretentious yet a quite nice and friendly hotel for travellers on a budget. The staff was extremely helpful and always trying to accommodate all our needs or requests. Beds were very comfortable and despite some stray dogs barking outside at night time (a common thing in Kathmandu by the way) we got a decent sleep. The management also runs a travel agency specialized in trekking trips, climbing expeditions, sightseeing, etc. that will save you the hassle of organizing domestic flights, government permits, insurance and other issues at a competitive prize and employing local people. We were very satisfied with our experience.

    Breakfast was a bit basic in my opinion. It was missing something like fresh fruit (easy and cheap to find in Kathmandu) or cereals. We got fried peppers, onions and tomatoes with toasts and tea but not everybody has such a strong stomach in the morning..! Also, we had overbooking problems a couple of nights (alternate days, not in a row) and although we were provided accommodation somewhere else at no extra cost, I thought it was not right. We had our rooms booked and confirmed months in advance and would have preferred to stay at Buddha Land because it is much quieter at night than the other hotels we had to move to.

    Brilliant hotel- great team at reception. A++ service and great room. If I go back to Kathmandu I would def stay here.

  • Family with children

    Relaxed and Friendly,it a great location.

    It could be cleaner and the dining room was not up to scratch.

  • Group of friends

    Excellent ! True Effort from the heart . 5 star quality service in a budget hotel . Mr. Bhanu is like a family friend and he will go to any length to make you feel at home . His hotel staff are the true face of Nepalese hospitality.I Lost my lighter. The counter boy immediately went running and bought me a match box at 10 P.M.And he refused to take the money.The 2 free computers were busy . Mr Vesh, the reception staff immediately gave me his laptop . My friends staying in other hotel came to meet me . They were offered free tea and coffee. They even surfed the internet free of charge . Breakfast is free and good and they even serve it in your room, with a smile . Hot water available 24 hrs .Bathroom slippers are available .Towels and bed linen are clean.Location is very good ,very near to shops , but no noise .I informed them about my arrival time over the phone.They arranged a free airport pick up,on time .They even arranged a city tour for my friends ,at a very nominal charge . One of the guests got into some trouble in some thamel bar .He asked Mr. Bhanu for help . Mr Bhanu sent his reliable hotel receptionist and helped him out .My stay in this hotel was made memorable by the passion and commitment of everyone associated with it .Will come back again .

    Great stay at Hotel Buddha Land. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. They have offered us free airport drop off, on top of the included pick-up. Every drink we have ordered be it coffee, tea, coke, they have insisted to be free. And they even let us have an incredibly late check out with no extra charge, as our plane was leaving at 11:35 pm. Location is perfect, right in Thamel, but not directly in the noisy streets. This was our second stay at Hotel Buddha Land, and will not be our last.

    only the staff is made of young and very good guys.

    no lift,bathroom is very poor,

  • Group of friends

    This is an amazing hotel, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I came here as part of my medical elective to do relief work with 20 people and they catered for our every need, even keeping our bags when we were out of town! The rooms are reasonably priced, clean and have en-suite bathrooms with hot showers. They organise day trips and excursions for very competitive rates. We often left Kathmandu and came back after 10 days at a time but each time we stayed here as opposed to anywhere else. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

  • Older travelers

    Did not like Buddha Land Moved to another hotel the next morning

    Did not provide the suite room which was booked sufficiently in advance and confirmed by and let us into an ordinary room without informing us that this was not the room that we had booked. Dirty bathrooms. Cockroaches every where. Wifi too feeble and useless.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel is located very centrally in Thamel, and though a little aside, so there is not much noise to complain about. Rooms are simple, but clean. Shower has hot water most of time. Venue is unpretentious. The staff is very kind and flexible. They listen to you and really try to help you. Good value for money.

  • Couple

    We liked The BuddhaLand Hotel very mutch. So friendly stuff, couzy rooms, so simple and delicious breakfasts. If you want a free transfer from an Tribhuvan airport to the hotel, you can email them or call by phone (I calld even from Russia=) ) and they will pick you up. Reailly comfortable rooms, not so fast but stable wifi internet, hot shower,good location. If you didnt decide what you want to see or to do in Nepal, you can recive a help with that. Thanks to Bhanu with managing our trekking in Pokhara and visit to Lumbini, thanks to Sabin Dhakal and all stuff of the holel for patience,understending and really frendly atmosphere. See ya!!!

    Sometimes it can be a lack of electricity for sevral hours, but its not a problem of a hotel, its all over Nepal. So dont pay an attantion on it, just go out, and see Katmandu =)

  • Group of friends

    Exellent, friendly staff. First our room was very good & clear with window & view, but second (when we back from treck) was dirty, small & old with window near ceiling. A lot of disсo all around, until 11.40 very loud music.
