    I have booked the Backyard Hotel for a night before the trek and after the trek. I have never found such a great hotel with Family Environment. Hotel is not like a 4-5 star but you could feel very warm once you enter the Hotel. Hotel is situated at Center of Thamel from where you can walk to Kathmandu Durbar Square and Royal Palace. Sujan, Director of Backyard Hotel always try to help. He was very kind and also booked some trip with him. Staffs are Great and help me even in the mid night. The most Imporant is that they do give service 24 hours. It has free wi-fi internet on public area. Sometime the connection is not good becuse of the Service Provider. Every rooms have Parquet on the Floor and LCD Cable Television. Rooms are neat and clean and i got everyday house-keeping service but you need to tell them if you want to Finally i became a family member of Backyard Hotel so its recommended. Thank you All

    The location is very good, right in the heart of Thamel.

    The rooms are expensive for what they offer. You could find a better place to stay in Thamel with 10 or 15 dollars.

    Good location if you want to explore the Thamel area. Quiet after midnight so sleep was ok. Very new building and was quite nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Room was not clean as we would expect - walls were grimy and the bathroom had mould and stains - not too bad but not good enough to make for a really comfortable stay. The internet was ridiculously slow - we gave up after a while. I happened to see inside the kitchen prior to breakfast and totally lost my appetite - eat at your own risk!!

    Very noisy and dirty. Sheets were dirty with bugs and hair. I was not impressed. I booked it since it had very good reviews but ended up being a dissapointment.

    While searching for a hotel online, I came across many hotels but i booked this hotel based on the reviews and the offerings. And it turned to be a very good decision for me. Every member (staff and Management) is very dedicated towards their customers and mentain a friendly and homely environment. The owners Mr. Sujan and Mr. Durga are very helpful and supportive and down to earth like people. The manager Mr. Dipendra and staff members, Rajan, Raj (especially) and Mahesh are very friendly and helpful. It can be easily called as "A home away from Home". I give 10 out 10 and 5 stars to this hotel and would love to stay here every time whenever i come to kathmandu.Thanks a lot Backyard Hotel for keeping my stay very comfortable herein Kathmandu.

    A staff named Dip is helpful. Computers and wifi are there - in the hotel lobby.

    We booked two grand deluxe twin rooms - one located in the 3rd floor and the other in the 5th floor. The 5th floor room doesnt have the mini bar, complimentary water and a/c is not so cold - compared to the 3rd floor room which have them. Bathroom was not properly clean. Towel has a bit of smell.

    The main reasons I chose Backyard Hotel was budget and Wi-Fi connectivity, but the fact that Sujan (manager) emailed me after I booked and organised my airport pickup and then welcomed me personally on arrival confirmed that I made the right choice During my stay there Sujan and his staff made me feel welcome and were very helpfull with my touring and all of my questions during my stay. Alpine travel is located within the hotel and they organised afantastic guide for me (Kapil) and the staff all seemed genuinly sad to see me go. I would definitly stay ther again, It's great value for money.
