Kathmandu, Feb 20: The government has decided to recognise boutique and deluxe hotels as the ‘star’ hotels.
The Department of Tourism, Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has fixed symbols for such hotels after classification. Prior to this, only hotels with advanced facilities were recognised as ‘star’ hotels.
