Located in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu's main tourist center, everything is within easy walking distance with taxi facilities available should you venture out further.
The Newars, the indigenous inhabitants Valley, were renowned for their craftsmanship. It is they who built the numerous pagoda temples and shrines, stone sculptures, metalwork and lavish carvings that you see everywhere. Their workmanship was of such high perfection that the Kathmandu Valley today boasts of seven World Heritage Sites.
The architecture of the Newar towns and villages is very appealing. Their red-brick houses have intricately carved wooden windows and doors and sloping tiled roofs. However, in the name of modernization, these beautiful houses and monuments are coming down fast and are being replaced by multi-storied concrete buildings.
Here at Hotel Tradition, we are committed to preserving and continuing those rich artistic traditions as well as the Valley's tradition of hospitality.
Accommodation is provided in 32 well-appointed guest rooms and suits. The rooms, with floors done all in traditional oiled bricks, have attached bathroom, telephone and multi-channel color TV.
The hotel has two restaurants that serve a variety of cuisine to meet the varied tastes of the dinner. The Himalaya Restaurant and Bar on the first floor serves Nepali, Newari, Tibetan, Chinese, Indian and Continental selections. For those who would like to watch the magnificent panorama of theHimalayas while having their meals, a lift will zoom you to Nirvana on the top floor. As one of the tallest buildings in Thamel, the hostel's terrace also provides unobstructed views of the city's landmarks - the Royal Palace, Kathmandu Durbar Square, the airport and 2000-year-old Swayambhunath stupa
