My wife, Lindsey, and I booked Hotel Moonlight directly with it’s CEO - Uttam as part of our honeymoon in Nepal. I have known Uttam since his days at the Kathmandu Guest House, where I have stayed many times. This was Lindsey’s first visit to Nepal, and she was naturally curious as to what to expect.
From the initial welcome from the staff on reception, we were made to feel at home. Ideally situated just outside Thamel, Hotel Moonlight is a haven of calm and serenity. Perfect after a long trek, flight or a day walking the streets of historic Kathmandu.
Uttam was his usual calm, effusive and welcoming self, and not just with us, with all his guests.
His restaurant/ bar manager Babu Raja and his entire team were equally friendly and engaging. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic - try the marsala omlette, freshly made to order ! The main lunch/dinner menu both Nepal and Continental selections were extensive and the food was excellent.
We stayed 3 nights before heading off for six days around Nepal, and returned for a further 3 nights. The welcome was like a homecoming reception from old friends.
We have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Moonlight as THE place to stay in the centre of Kathmandu. We’ll be back next year, and again and again.
Namaste

I stayed on 3 separate occasions (twice sharing/once solo) in this hotel either side of a wonderful Himalayan trek to the summit of Island Peak. The location of the hotel in Thamel district is great. The hotel provides modern amenities, en-suite rooms, tv, free wi-fi, air conditioning, laundry services, etc. From a prior trip to Kathmandu staying in a similar hotel I feel Hotel Moonlight offers a homely rustic charm mixed with modern facilities and very friendly staff. The central garden offers an immediate refuge from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu and is a wonderful place to relax by oneself or enjoy company. The hotel offers massage facilities at its spa on the ground floor, highly recommend the 'trekkers massage' for a well hiked body. I had a late departure in the afternoon of my final day and the hotel had no problem extending my check-out time. The hotel is well run, with a focus on satisfying customers, it's location, warm atmosphere, good food, and lovely staff have ensured that I doubt I'll look past this hotel to another when venturing to Kathmandu. Off course not all rooms are the same in the hotel and from other reviews there are certain bug bears regarding facilities, but any I noticed did not detract from a wonderful stay. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any of my family or friends and look forward to returning.

Room tip: Rooms above the restaurant side of hotel offer a charming character

We enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast was OK, although the breakfast room is a bit small. The rooms are good and spacious. Service is OK. Lunch and dinner servings a bit on the expensive side, recognising the choice in the area.

Travel was made comfortable by one of the staff. Family owned and very helpful with tours, shopping, places to visit and just lovely, happy people.
We went to the mountains from the hotel, to watch the sun rise. Very convenient location.
The Staff, especially Shrishtee Joshi helped us at every turn, whether it be food, books, clothes and other necessities. Shops near by and good food experiences.
Nice courtyard to relax in the beautiful garden.

Room tip: I was able to see the mountain tops from your room. Watch shoppers and the colours of life.Ask for a room with a view.

The location of the hotel is great that it is right next to the entrance of Thamel and the service of the hotel was alright. The only cons of the hotel were some of the rooms do not have any walls or glasses between toilet and shower area that causing the water splashed all over and also the rooms do have rather thin wall that we encountered some of the people that were talking loudly in the hallway at night. However, we might still consider in staying there again next week due to the convenience of that.
