Why so many people rave about this hotel is a miracle to me. Most people (during my 2 night stay) stay just one night and they leave very early in the morning to go on a tour. This hotel is entirely built using tiles so it is noisy and I woke up both mornings around 6 in the morning due... More

Very nice staff and good location! I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone going to Kathmandu! The steam room is a plus in the cold months, and the owner treats guests as he would friends or family.

Spent a few nights here. The owner Kapil is very nice and hospitable. He was generous and very accommodating to all our requests. I recommend staying here and getting in touch with Kapil when you arrive. Enjoy your stay and have a great holiday!!

excellent location , very friendly service and spacious rooms. Value for the money.. Nice roof top terrace where breakfast is served. Stayed 3 nights and will come back for sure. The hotel owner is very nice and happy to help with anything. Close distance to main KAThmandu sites like durbar square or dream of garden. Juraj and Palo from Slovakia.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Family Home. The rooms are clean, a nice size, the beds are comfortable, the blankets are warm, and even when the power is out in town, there is sufficient lighting in the room and the water is piping hot. Breakfast on the rooftop is a great feature! The best thing about this place,... More

We stayed here before and after trekking and it is definitely a solid option in a very central Thamel location. Staff is great, breakfast is big and tasty, they kept our bags for free while we trekked, and rooms are clean and spacious. The only complaint is that the hot water only works later in the day, and even then... More

Hot water, wifi & heater are available but will be on after the electricity is on too (in Nepal, there is a periodic power outage but basic lighting... More

My wife and I spent several nights at the Hotel Family Home in Kathmandu. Aside from the periodic power outages, from which there is no escape, we really enjoyed our time at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to assist. Breakfast on the rooftop was very good. Communicating in English was not an... More

It's a good place to stay in the middle of Thamel, huge rooms, hot water and always wifi. It's great to start the the day at the roof terrace with a good breakfast. The people are very helpful and can recommend and book trips for you.
