We, a group of four friends, bought early 1993 the first Himalyan Hotel manufactured by TNF Europe.
And it is still alive!
It served extreme winter expeditons in Scandinavia and the Alps. It protected us from blizzards, extreme cold and heavy rains. Since years went by nowadays our tent is also used as a family tent during summer holidays and it appears to be kid-proof as well.
We only paid around 1000 Euro's (in Dutch currency at the time).

I've been using my Himalayan Hotel for ten years now...it comes on all my horse packing trips and is invaluable for sharing with my two dogs, horse riding or hiking girlfriends and husband Doug. Though Doug did say the tent was a bit stuffy with all of us in there the evening I invited him to share a night with three dogs, Deb and I after our month long horse trip in the Canadian Rockies.
I won't leave home without it this year.

Ease of Setup: none
Price Paid: $500
I Have been climbing for 40 years all over the world and this is the best tent that I have ever been in. I have had my tent since June 1998 and it has been all over the world with me and never let me down.
It has been in the coldest climates and some of the hottest, I have been through many a stormy night and got up the following morning to see the tents around me destroyed.
This tent after more than ten years of extensive use is still in excellent condition, congratulations to TNF for an outstanding and reliable place to sleep no matter what the conditions.

Design: High Altitude Mountaineering
Ease of Setup: Very simple and quick to setup
Price Paid: £699 (Sterling)
My dad and I have had our Himalayan Hotel for 1-2 years now. We bought it to replace our Vango Force 10. We bought it from First Ascent in Britain who were very helpful when we chose it.
When we slept out on the summit of Ben Nevis last December it was an absolute dream. The winds were reaching 60-70 mph in the gusts and it stood unshaken. It's so large inside compared to the Vango. We could easily sleep 4-5 people in comfort in it. With just two of us though it was like a hotel! The vestibules at each end are huge and we also bought some gear lockers for the roof.
All in all, it is a fabulous tent -- buy one today!

Design: Himalayan Hotel
Sleeps: 4 +
Ease of Setup: relatively easy, 6 main color-coded poles
Weight: 14 lbs.
Price Paid: $895
This is an amazing tent when you need the finest stability around, with two doors and easy setup. There are no windows because it is an alpine-style basecamp tent and overkill for most situations. However I found it to be extremely roomy, top of the line North Face quality, and a great oval shape with plenty of headroom as well.
People feigned heart attacks when I told them I planned on taking it to Yosemite this summer, and after carrying it around in my Dana Terraplane for an afternoon I figured out why. Unless you're a Sherpa or member of the WWF, don't plan on bouncing around the countryside with this puppy, although you can split up the poles, rainfly, etc. between people.
Verdict: If you need a giant bombproof shelter at the cost of mucho weight, you've come to the right place. Look no further than the Hotel for Alaska trips, expeditions to Nepal, or anywhere else over 10,000 ft.
