I have stayed here so many times now. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the accommodation is great value for money. Really recommend it for a budget stay in Kathmandu. Location is quitter than most as it's down a side street.

The staff at festoon are very welcoming and keen to meet your needs. The accommodations were clean and met our needs nicely. With wifi included and many shops and restaurants nearby this was a perfect place for us to spend our first couple of nights in Nepal.

We stayed here as part of our trek to EBC and found that for the money it was good. Our room was large, and pretty clean. The bathroom facilities weren't the best and there was often a lack of hot water but you do have to remember the price you are paying! It makes no sense to me when people...

I stayed at Hotel Festoon for my first few days in Nepal, and the staff, including the owner and Babu, really made my stay a beautiful one. Always there with a smile and ready to help, advise or just have a laugh with all the time, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms and accommodation aren't fancy or...

I honestly don't know why this hotel is getting great reviews because my stay there was just AWFUL. I've been putting off writing a review because I would rather forget the bad experience, but I don't feel like I can keep quiet for long seeing all these positive reviews from relatively newbie posters. Anyway, I'm a legit reviewer of plenty...

I took rooms alone, cheapest price inside thamel I've seen, always with truly hot water, good WiFi compared to other hotels, electricity almost always up. Young and enthusiastic crew, which leads to amazing and loving service. I slept there during the big 2015 earthquake, ask them, they remember me well! If I ever come back, this is my hotel for...
