The International Guest House, in spite of a bland name, combines several virtues. It's just a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle of Thamel, but is located in a quiet area. Outside, it's anonymous, but step inside, and it has a charming Nepali character, with a lovely indoor garden where breakfast is served. There are some nice touches...

We recently stayed at this guest house. We are a group of 4 ladies, so we had 2 twin rooms. When you walk into this property it is clean, cool and calm. Reception staff were very efficient and helpful. The decoration and wood carving in reception is lovely. It has an outside court yard, and a delightful garden area with...

Great value, we paid just 50 USD for a room with our own bathroom. Its a little further away from the nice restaurants but only by a 5 minute walk. Recommended for all visiting Kathmandu in the Thamel area. They also provide free pick up from the airport which was most welcome and avoids the usual bun fight for the...

I had the pleasure to stay with my wife in this hotel for a couple of nights before and after a Himalaya-trek in October / November 2012. We had booked this hotel online well in advance - it was recommended to us by other German travellers who had visited Nepal and Kathmandu before. The staff is friendly and helpful, the...

The hotel decor gives you a pretty good sense of traditional Nepali architecture.The rooms are decent and have an old world charm. There are several courtyards which provide a great place to hang out, read if you want a day away from the chaos of Thamel. The restaurant although quaint and charming lacks atmosphere. Slightly reminiscent of government guest houses,...

My daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June and really enjoyed it. The price was right for about $25/night. We had a standard deluxe room which faced the garden, no air conditioning but a fan and screened windows for some fresh air. The hotel is quiet and quite pretty with beautiful woodwork. The staff...

International Guest House was a pleasant surprise at the end of our Nepal trip. First off, I think this is the most impressive hotel design I've seen so far at such an accessible price. It has amazing woodwork, the room we had - with TV, air conditioning and a quaint balcony- looked a bit like a museum, and so did...

This is an average Kathmandu hotel in terms of room standard & cleanliness, but if you're wanting to escape a little from the Thamel frenzy, then it's a good option as it's set a little bit outside the chaos. It's just a 5 minute walk to get back into the centre of things, but the distance helps for a more...

Three times I have come to Katmandu and three times we have made this our home. From the moment the taxi drops you off in the gate, you notice the hand carved posts and window frames. The staff is kind and genuine not smug or patronizing. The rooms are simple but very clean. The view from 601 on the rooftop...

This guest house is tucked away in a corner of the Thamel district and it was the perfect launching point for our month of trekking in Nepal. They are incredibly helpful, even when booking room online. They even picked us up right from the airport. It's a very clean hotel with lots of interesting nooks and cranies to explore. The...
