4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 17 days in December 2015. The staff is lovely, the tourist guide very helpful. The location & garden-setting are fantastic. Fortunately, we were given a space-heater as the temps were quite cold. We were saved from some of the load-shedding by their generator. The electronics need upgrading as the wifi is poor on the 4th floor... More

Has a spacious garden for places like Thamel , the hotel clusters of the tourist area of kathmandu. Room was extremely cold and has no heater or AC in the room so can be tough in winter as Kathmandu is cold in January and February. Easy access to Thamel and Durbar square. The wooden craft decoration are breathtaking but has... More

The International Guest House seems to be a lesser known budget price hotel located just outside of Thamel in a more peaceful area, within walking distance to good restaurant and WiFi cafe options. My organization, Engineers Without Borders, uses this hotel every time we stay in Kathmandu, rather than the more expensive Kathmandu Guest House which is centrally located in... More

The hotel is very boutique designed, located in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu. You can find your self happy and relaxing here. The room is big, clean and beautiful. It is called Guest house, but the standards is much more than a guest house. I love this place.

A nice hotel inside Thamel, location wise good- the entrance to reach the hotel gate will not give a great feel, but from the entrance it is really good decorated and well maintained. Its a completely boutique hotel- and I liked the decoration. The deluxe rooms are not recommended, but the superior suites are really good rooms. Please note, there... More

All hotel facilities in Kathmandu are suffering from sporadic electricity, shortages of diesel fuel for generators, limited food for their restaurants, and lots of difficulties. In spite of all the problems, IGH did a great job trying to be helpful in every way possible. All hotel personnel were friendly and willing to make any travel arrangements one might need. IGH...

The only two negatives are that rooms were on the older side and you could hear noise from the street clearly inside the room. Other than that, the rooms were clean, the hotel and grounds are nice, the breakfast was really good, the staff friendly and helpful. The manager can also help organize treks or tours. He is not pushy... More

As a traveller who has stayed in hotels like Kathmandu Guest house, Tibet Guest house and Ganesh Himal before ( yes i travel to Nepal at least twice a year) i would say International Guest House beats them by miles from absolutely beautiful gardens with top architect, cultural, peaceful guest house,hand carved woods dated back to 200 year old (or...

By western standards, it's quite humble. But this is Nepal and I was going for a local experience. The room was comfortable and the bath adequate. However, the people were wonderful, very polite, quite pleasing by nature. They had a room where you could secure all of your valuables, individual safety deposit boxes, some big enough to hold a large... More
