    I arrived in Kathmandu only to find my backpack didn't. I carried on to the Yambu Hotel and the staff and owner were immediately all over my problem. Within hours, they helped me secure my luggage and all was well before the end of the day. That was a huge plus. They continued to accommodate me in every way until I left. Raj and Batta were the best. Especially since Raj bought be a beer last night. Personally, I have nothing but praise for the Yambu Hotel.

    Perfect location, veryyyy close to Thamel (without thamel’s Noise). Staff are super friendly and very helpful. They even let us 8 hours in the room after the checkout!! Breakfast was good (we were leaving very early to Pokhara, so they made us an early breakfast and ordered a taxi to bus station without taking any charges). Would definitely recommend it. Thank u yambu crew, especially Raj and his brother! Much love from Lebanon

    This is such a great place to stay! Right on the edge of Thamel so close to everything but still quiet. Staff was amazing, incredibly friendly and very helpful with anything we needed. Delicious breakfast with great selection. Nice room with the best shower we have had in Asia - lovely hot water and great pressure. Nice outdoor space to relax in. We had no complaints and would definitely stay here again whenever we return to Kathmandu.

    Absolutely beautiful hotel a 1 minute walk away from Thamel. Fantastic hot showers and a great breakfast. The staff were wonderful and took us to our bus to Pokhara; they also offered to store our bags for the week we were away.

    Really nice stay in Yambu! The location is perfect as it is not exactly in Thamel but just 2min walk from it. The place was nice and the room quite clean. I can recommend the breakfast (I loved the banana pancakes) and the people working there have always been helpful and really nice.

    Great if you're just in need of a place to prep before heading off to trek in the mountains. Free breakfast was great, staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was only a few minutes from some good local restaurants and gear shops. Only major downside was that there is very little atmosphere here but it was a pretty small price to pay since you'll probably just be there for a day or two to gear up before a trek.

    This is a hotel and of good value if you plan on catching a bus to pokhara since the drive a few hundred feet from the place and will pick you up on the corner. They have AC and TV with 5 channels. Good rest place before trekking

    Positives: Location is perfect, just a 2 minute walk into the heart of Thamel. WiFi was stable. The staff were friendly and resolved any problems you had. Negatives: We were on the 6th floor and there is no lift. The hotel sometimes runs out of water. On the last night our A/C broke. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend Hotel Yambu, although we have noticed you can get better value for money elsewhere
