What our Guests have to say

We’re staying at the Varnabas Museum Hotel in beautiful Kathmandu. This hotel is brand new. It has the most beautiful artifacts, designs. All the walls are done by indigenous artists and it’s almost like being in a real museum and sleeping there. It’s just really a lot of fun. We really enjoyed it. The people are lovely here and I would highly recommend, if you come to Kathmandu, come to the Varnabas.
