They may not all be Shangri La, but with everything from backpacker hostels to luxury boutique suites, there are dozens of Kathmandu hotels for every budget. Most affordable and mid-range Kathmandu hotels are situated in the city's Thamel district, while high-end inns and resorts are located a short distance away on Durbar Marg, which is close to the former Royal Palace. Budget-conscious guests may opt to stay on Freak Street, a quiet neighborhood below Durbar Square.
Beds in lower-end Kathmadu cheap hotels can cost very little, but if you're staying in a posh luxury you can expect to pay for the priviledge. And since the prices--and quality--of Kathmandu hotels can vary so drastically, it's especially important to research and book rooms well in advance of your Kathmandu vacation.

You may also want to combine your visit to Durbar Square with a stop at the Baudha Stupa, another sacred Buddhist site. Ready to take off for Nepal?
