Beautiful hotel in Kathmandu
Baber Mahal was an amazing historic hotel. Stayed in the Traditional Suite which was a good size. There is a small balcony adjoining the bedroom, but best part is it is on the top floor and has an public outside area Next to the room and the pool is 20 meters away. No regrets staying here and would definitely go back if in Kathmandu. Thamel is about 10-15mins away by car or 30 mins walk.

Great Potential but misses the mark
At first glance the place is very nice and the staff is wonderful. The bed should be more comfortable. The place could be cleaned more thoroughly and rooms given air purifiers for all the dust. The shower at the bottom of the glass also has lots of mold. The food provided by the hotel and it's restaurants is not very good. The Indian was flavorless even compared to what we get in the States, the Nepali food was not as good as other places in Nepal, and the continental was very bad. On my way out I was charged $20 USD for a car that was no better than a local taxi when I had a nice car for that amount on the way in. I would not be so harsh if this place was not listed as a 5-star hotel and charged European and American prices like it was a 5-star. In my humble opinion it should be a 3 or 3.5 star. The history of the place, boutique style, and customer service give this place huge potential if other issues can be addressed.

Charming boutique hotel with attentive staff
Stayed here as needed to attend some meetings nearby, but also brought my family (wife and 2 young children). Fantastic boutique hotel in the centre of Kathmandu. In terms of location, it is close to government and ministry offices and the CBD. It is a short journey by taxi to the more "touristy" areas and not far from the airport (all dependent on traffic of course!). The Baber Mahal Revisted complex has a great selection of upmarket shops and good quality restaurants. I would highly recommend Chez Caroline for dinner. The hotel itself affords a fascinating glimpse into the history of a Victorian-era palace and has been restored very well. The rooms are large and spacious and very tastefully furnished. The staff, in particular the manager, Prabin, were incredibly helpful and responsive. I would recommend staying here and look forward to staying again when I'm next in Kathmandu.

Great service, great room
The hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff was very accommodating, we were leaving early in the morning prior to breakfast being ready and they accommodated us cooking us an omelet each prior to our departure while also assuring with booking our bus ticket and cab. The toiletries were good. The only complaint I could have from what I experienced was that the shower did not get very hot and also it is a rain head shower (I personally do not prefer). Best room we had in Kathmandu

Just book it!
This place is amazing in so many ways: architecture (doors, history, gardens, everything), service, rooftop pool, in city yet secluded, the library, the spa, the workout facility, the connecting shops and eating spots... you may not want to leave!

Truely Beautiful Rana Palace/Perfect City Escape
What a beautiful place with heritage background. Definitely will return. Worth every dollar paid. Amazing staffs with can do attitude with such positive energy and warm hospitality. This hotel has everything in smaller scale but better than a huge 5 star hotel. Enjoyed personalised services throughout. Just watch out for minimal outside noises but hotel is very accommodating to solve any problems quickly. Hotel is adjusted to a high end shopping complex and nice restaurants. It was great location. Just 10 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes to main shopping district and downtown. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. Highly recommend this place to any traveller. Their rooms are very spacious and beautifully restored to give maximum interior of traditional design. Loved their themed rooms with all natural materials. This is more than 5 star property. The best heritage building hotel in Kathmandu! Roof top infinity Swimming pool, steam room and sauna along with a gym and the mini spa facility is really a big plus in this small boutique hotel. Enjoyed 2 nights dinner inside same complex

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at.
I stayed here for two nights while at a stopover in Kathmandu. Wow this is one of the best hotels I have been in. Not your usual cookie cutter hotel. The Hotel itself is like what you would imaging a colonial era villa to be. The room was fantastic with a great private patio off the bedroom and period detail. The pictures do not show how special this place really is.
