“As the world’s highest-placed hotel (according to the record-keepers at Guinness), it’s perhaps little surprise that Hotel Everest View has an awe-inspiring panorama of all-star peaks. This 12-room Himalayan retreat is at a strategic spot in Sagarmatha national park nearly 4,000m above sea level. The heavenly views leave many visitors in a happy stupor but the hotel is also a great base from which to get out and explore the Everest region.”

“Standing at a height of 3,962 metres, its name says it all: Hotel Everest View. Located in Nepal National Park, it offers 360º views of all the surrounding peaks, including Everest. In fact, you can admire the highest peak in the world from every room. There’s no better reward if you manage to make it there.”

“In this valley, with the sheer verticality of the nearby looming peaks – Everest, Lhostse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam all around, the hotel’s horizontal and heavy-block construction anchoring it to the earth underscore this as a place of shelter, and a sublime moment of architecture in the great Himalayan landscape”

“Remote hotels give visitors two things their typical counterparts can’t: First, the completion of a long and arduous journey delivers a handsome sense of achievement. Second, a calming detachment from everyday worries and commitments results from getting literally thousands of miles from home”

“The grassy hilltops and mixed rhododendron and fir forest around the Hotel are magnificent. The view from here can only be described as superb… As an example of excellent stonework, the exterior of this building is possibly the best in Khumbu, the other feature being its architecture which allows it to blend in with its surroundings”.
