Wifi only in lobby/garden areas, not in rooms and they are honest about that. Luckily there are many nice sitting areas in garden and lobby. Many centuries old carvings in lobby and other antiques. Breakfast very good. Staff and owners are really nice. Manager lacks people skills. Rooms are old. None of the TV's worked in rooms I had. Checked... More

Spent 4 nights at this hotel (2 either side of the Everest Base Camp trek) and it was great for accommodating us before we left and allowing us to unwind and relax afterwards. The breakfast is a massive plus and it's proximity to the number of shops and bakeries in the area is also a great benefit.

This is the fourth time I have stayed at this guest house and its beginning to feel like returning 'home' each time I have visited Kathmandu over the past 20 years. It ticks most of the boxes from affordability to ambience to service. Its great that its a tad out of the tourist hell of Thamel and in a typical... More

This hotel is situated right in the middle of Thamel market. It is a very old building or maybe the architecture is ancient napalese style. The hotel got two parts on is the old wing and the other is the new wing. We stayed here just for one night, the first room which had enough space to sleep 4 people... More

Our fourth trekking experience in Nepal was based out of this facility. As in prior visits the garden haven was a treasure. Improvements have occurred providing a dependable supply of hot water. The IGH's pleasant room service staff, gate security and porter bajes, dependable car service for airport arrivals and departures and comfortable beds are noteworthy. The culturally diverse menu...

We had a good stay at the International Guest House. The hotel itself is nice enough with clean, warm rooms & has everything you need for Kathmandu. The staff were really friendly and very helpful and the location is great with a 5 minute stroll into Thamel City, while being nicely secluded off the busy streets. The restaurant was accommodating... More

Quiet and clean guesthouse just off the busy streets of Thamel. Rooms were clean and well appointed, hot water on demand and on site restaurant great for the included breakfast. Only negatives was the charge for a late checkout even when only half full and the Tv reception pretty poor although TV is not your priority in Kathmandu. If you... More

Very good guesthouse with a nice and quiet garden. Room very comfortable and affordable for a family of 5. Staff very helpful and polite. No wifi in room! Plenty of breakfast choices with great coffee! We will go again!

Yeah... this is a well established hotel in a great location on the edge of Thamel. Everything seemed a little tired and dated. The staff were not that enthused and it was quite expensive. Having stayed at other hotels in Kathmandu, I would't recommend this place in a hurry. It was OK and we had a real struggle to find... More

This is a guesthouse I have been staying in for years, having tried many others in Kathmandu. The rooms are small but comfortable and traditionally decorated. In recent years the bathrooms have been renovated and now there is always plenty of hot water. The garden area and the rooftop are beautifully looked after and give you a pleasant place to... More
