Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Truly a peaceful escape! The garden is a serene oasis, perfect for morning coffee or an evening stroll. The living room is spacious and inviting, and the rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable. Hot water on demand is a great touch. And those cute dogs roaming around? They add an extra layer of charm. Easily accessible yet worlds away from the noise. Highly recommend Fresco Retreat!

Quiet neighborhood, great services, beautiful homestay style hotel.
Would love to stay here again.

This place is tucked into a quiet neighborhood but very close to Patan, Sanepa, and other great neighborhoods. Plenty of nearby restaurants and happening places.
