Nice clean rooms, hot shower. Ok location 5 min walk outside Thamel. On arrival immediately felt very welcome by the owner, Khem, who helped out with everything from trips to Chitwan, renting car and finding my meeting hotel for my EBC trek. Good breakfast - for free! Nice garden. Would easily stay here again!


My friends and I had an excellent stay at Elbrus home. They helped us arrange a driver so we could watch the sunset at Nagarkot as well as seeing Bhaktapur. The included breakfast was a wonderful thing to wake up to every morning. The staff was all super helpful and hospitable. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Loved Elbrus Home!


Had an amazing stay at Elbrus. The staff and owner Khem are passionate, friendly and willing to help in any way. My stay was extended by three days due to the closure of the Kathmandu airport and Khem and his team did everything they could to assist myself and all other stranded guests find alternative ways out of the city and make our unexpected delay as positive and comfortable as possible. Next time i'm in Nepal I'll be back here in a heartbeat! Thank you!!


Clean room with everything we needed. The friendly owner, Khem, also helped us get to airport the next day to collect a piece of luggage which arrived late. Very satisfied!

The staff at Elbrus are incredibly helpful. And the balconies on each floor are lovely spots to hang out, check out the views over Kathmandu and make new friends.




Nice location just outside of Thamel. The owner Khem is amazing and always makes you feel at home. He's awesome to chat to and can help organise anything!


This Hotel was a great little gem just a 5 minute walk outside the hectic streets of Thamel. Breakfast was great, and the beds and blankets were great after some of the other places we've stayed. The hotel manager was very considerate of our needs and helped with everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again!


If you come to kathmandu, Elbrus is a great placebo stay. The staff go out of their way to help you and are very welcoming. the rooms are clean, the coffee is delicious, and it's only a couple of minutes walk into the main area of Thamel. We had help finding a tailor (according to our budget), directions to sites around the city, and they also booked buses and tours for us. Hands down the place to stay in Kathmandu.


We found this place online at a good value and with great reviews and have not been disappointed. Rooms are neat and clean, beds are good, and shower has lots of hot water! Breakfast is really nice and there's plenty of it - plus you can eat it in their beautiful garden. Location in outer Thamel means it nicely quiet at night, and the owner will help you any way he can. We fully enjoyed our stay and would gladly recommend it!


Charismatic owner who was very helpful. Clean rooms, but more pricey than other budget places to stay in KTM but the rooms are better! Plus you get an amazing free breakfast for free. Great place to recover from a trek or goto before setting off!
