Hyatt Place Kathmandu – Hyatt’s second hotel in Nepal

Hyatt Place Kathmandu, the second Hyatt-branded hotel in Nepal, has opened, expanding the Hyatt Place brand’s footprint globally in markets that matter most to guests and World of Hyatt members. It is located in the lively city of Kathmandu, set in a valley surrounded by the beautifully scenic Himalayan mountains. Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is steeped in rich history, long associated with ancient traditions and a vibrant culture. The hotel is only a short two-and-a-half-mile (four-kilometer) journey from the bustling city center and its attractions, which include many World Heritage sites like the remarkable ancient temple, Swayambhunath Stupa, and the sacred Hindu temple in Pashupatinath. For those looking for some retail therapy, the hotel is close to several popular shopping centers including New Road, Thamel and Durbar Marg. “As Kathmandu continues to be a sought-after spot for both business and leisure travelers, we are excited to add to the momentum of the thriving city by welcoming the first Hyatt Place to Nepal in this truly unique capital city, which is bursting with history and cultural traditions,” said General Manager Varun Talwar. “With our smartly designed social spaces and guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, our multitasking guests can easily accomplish what they need to do while on the road.” Hyatt Place Kathmandu offers:

“Kathmandu is a vibrant city, filled with historic and artistic sites, friendly people, exciting neighborhoods, and an ever-expanding list of places to visit and experience,” said Akshay Golyan, Executive Director, City Hotel Ltd. “Our hotel is central to all of them and we are confident that the Hyatt Place Kathmandu will exceed guest expectations and provide them with everything they need while visiting our area.” Hyatt Place Kathmandu is under the leadership of General Manager Varun Talwar and Head of Sales and Marketing Achint Rastogi.

  1. Many a traveller, like me, will have travelled thousands of miles to get to Kathmandu and that for lots of us is only one leg of our journey complete. It’s reassuring to know that you have a hotel brand that you can trust to rest and recover.

    1. Yes, I think this will be a popular addition to Kathmandu, particularly for western travellers. When I was there, we stayed at Dwarika’s which I would also heartily recommend.

  2. Worth staying at the Kathmandu Hyatt for those incredible views alone. With views like that you’re not going to forget where you are.

  3. I like the look of the art work and interior design it all seems very local and gives that important feel of a place belonging.

    1. It’s only just opened but if they want A Luxury Travel Blog to visit and do a review some time, all they need to do is contact us! Hopefully then we will be able to report back…

  4. I keep getting this picture of exhausted adventurers arriving in the hotel after weeks of tough camping in the mountains. I can imagine them having promised themselves a stay in the Hyatt as a reward and dreaming of a hot shower, a proper bed and food that is not dehydrated cooked over a camp fire.

  5. It’s hard for me to picture this modern structure in a place such as Kathmandu, where red and orange brick buildings dominate the skyline. However, it’s good to know that there are now accommodation options for travellers to the country.

    1. It’s an interesting move by Hyatt. I do seem to remember the choice of more upscale accommodation being quite limited when I was there. Presumably the Hyatt Regency Kathmandu (which has been around 20 years now) was a successful move for them.
