Hotel Vajra - a classic

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 21, 2007

This is a classic hotel in Kathmandu. It used to be on the outskirts of Kathmandu, now it's on the outskirts of the bustling centre - all the space that used to be field is eaten up by housing development. Still, Vajra is a secluded sanctuary with a variety of architectural styles and forms built around a courtyard. Coming back from a trek or on a group travel this is an ideal hotel. For the meditating visitor who wants quiet and seclusion, space and quiet for reading etc. Vajra is super. The place is an architectural wonder.
There is a bit of a walk into town, across the river and up narrow lanes into Chhetrapati and Thamel. Coming back with armfuls of souvenirs, it's an ok taxi ride from town, and everybody knows the Vajra. It's a good address in town.

Vajra has meeting rroms, the

Unique Quality: There is a nice flower garden, a gallery, the East West Library and a theatre stage. They offer a special deal for long-term guestswho are writers. artists and scholars.
The main restaurant is called The Explorer's Restaurant and while the food is not much beyond OK, the atmosphere and company here is excellent.
On top of the main building is the pagoda bar, good city views.
From the Sunset bar there is a great view across to Swayambunath stupa.
Rooms are a bit on the dark side as is traditional newar architecure, dark woods etc. Good beds, excellent rooms for the money.

Wonderful Hotel Vajra

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 12, 2006

This hotel is really a home away from home in Kathmandu. The rooms are clean and comfortable and they have a wonderful group of staff members. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to Thamel. If you are looking to be right in the center of town, this would not be the best choice for you. But, if you want a quiet and friendly hotel, this hotel is a great choice. The restaurant has a wonderful menu and I especially like the rooftop patio. In the early morning you can hear the sound of monks chanting from the famous "Monkey Temple". The Monkey Temple is only a short walk from the hotel.

Unique Quality: Peaceful, relaxing, comfortable, friendly, affordable, clean.

Directions: Near the foothills of the Swayambhunath Stupa "Monkey Temple"

Great place to stay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

We stayed at the Hotel Vajra for 8 nights in November 2005. The hotel's website is very accurate, as are the photographs. It's a wondeful place, very quiet, friendly, clean, good food and a nice (short) distance from all the chaos of Thamel. We stayed in a suite (#801 + 901) and they were both great. We will definitely stay there again!

Unique Quality: Short walk from the Swayambhunath Stupa. Beautiful architecture & landscaping. Very helpful staff.
