Spectacular Views But Rundown, Mismanaged Property
Beautiful location, even with the 500 steps and !,000 NR taxi ride one way to/from town. Sadly, management and staff lack training and follow through on basic requests is absent. Over our three day stay, the fan and door were left broken after repeated promises to repair and we could not get anyone to freshen linens or provide room straightening. Lots of friendly smiles and a birthday cake to honor my husband were unexpected surprises. They mean well - just not trained in service and execution.

Over priced
Nothing wrong with Raniban - reasonable food an amenities, comfortable rooms and magnificent views. But it is way over priced (by Nepal standards) for what you get. The nearby Peace Dragon Hotel further down the same ridge is just as good but about a third the price, although Raniban is more secluded and private than Peace Dragon if that's what you want . Both involve a ten minute walk from nearest vehicle drop-off area but the drive to Raniban is a lot longer and on a very rough track, and with the subsequent walk to Raniban being much steeper and more physically demanding.

Best Choice in Pokhara
Astonishing view. Great service. Beautiful rooms. Even the 506 steps to get tho the hotel are a pleasant way to get fit....... Very bad road from the "highway" to the beginning of the walkway. Restaurant not top choice in particular considering that you have no other options: it would be difficult to get back to hotel at dark. Price reasonable. We strongly suggest to go to Raniban Retreat if you are not scared by the steps

Magnificent views/average service
Clean, comfortable rooms and food okay. Most dissapointing aspect was amount of visible rubbish on and around the walking track leading up to the hotel and the rubbish at rear of main complex visible to those exploring the grounds. Most outstanding feature are the magnificent views. The overall standard is marginally better than other hotels/guesthouses along the same ridge, but those others are less than half the price of Raniban and offer the same views.
