Some important points to check before you decide on a hotel:

Your budget would decide the type of accommodation you can opt for. Kathmandu offers a number of options even when you are looking for cheap accommodation. Some hotels, guest houses and hostels may even offer off-season discount.

The location of the hotel is important, if you are a tourist it is better you stay close to the city centre so that you are in close proximity to the important places. If you want to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas then opt for a hotel on the mountainside and if you to want to be far away from the maddening crowd then opt for the suburbs.

When you are short-listing your hotels also check what facilities the hotels or guest houses provide. Most of the hotels and guest-houses run free transportation service to and fro for the airport.

Check with the hotels if they would arrange for package tours to nearby places. Some of the good hotels arrange for such customized tours, of course, at an extra cost.

Kathmandu offers every range of accommodation to suit most tourists’ requirements.
