An oasis from the experience of Nepal
This is a great hotel in Kathmandu, the milk tea and milk coffee service on the roof terrace is great morning or evening. Rooms are nice and big enough for 6foot 2inch travelers. Bathrooms are good and the water is always hot.

I have stayed many times at the Hotel Magnificent View. Its location is good: in Thamel but in a quiet area. The staff is friendly and helpful, the price reasonable. The bathrooms are good. However as frequent visitors to Kathmandu know: traffic and air pollution are terrible. Hours of no electricity can be 16 or more during the winter, the hotel does have an inverter which gives a minimal amount of power for lighting.
That said, most travelers come to Nepal for the Mountains and culture and Thamel is a good staging point... The Hotel Magnificent View is fine for short stays... Get your business done and head out to Pokhara or Chitwan or the Mountains...
Good Accommodation in Kathmandu
We have stayed at this hotel three times over the past year. The rooms are quite good, although they have seen better days. Standard double rooms are around $20 and the large deluxe rooms about $25 - which may be a tad overpriced, although good rooms with attached bathroom and hot water in Kathmandu can be hard to find any cheaper than this.
The service is very friendly at this hotel, and the staff helpful.
