Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Best decision I’ve ever made was staying here at the Royal Empire. It was previously known as the White Palace, and is the former residence of the royal family and has recently been restored and converted into a small boutique hotel. It’s quiet and utterly charming. The room was large and filled with natural light. My balcony overlooks lush misty mountains. The management and staff have gone over and beyond, and arranged every little detail. I feel very cared for. If you’re coming to Kathmandu, tell them Kim sent you.
