We enjoyed our stay at this guest house. The design and style gave us a feel for the traditional architecture of Nepal. The layout with the charming courtyard with the restaurant areas surrounding it gave us an oasis of green from the bustle and convenience of the nearby shops and cafes in Thamel. We pretty much walked everywhere. Very pleased... More

I'm a structural engineer who was in Kathmandu to perform post-earthquake assessment of buildings damaged by the Apr 25/May 12 earthquakes in Nepal. Of course, I was concerned about my own safety and I wanted to be sure that the hotel where I was staying was safe, so I conducted my own assessment of the building I was sleeping in... More

After we book a hotel in Kathmandu, we arrived there and see that the building have no safe conditions to stay, very heavy, tall and with cracks in balcony due the earth quakes. Fortunately I see International Guest house building just in front with a perfect concrete structure without any visible damage or cracks and we decided to stay here.... More

I stayed in this hotel after the earthquake of April, 2015. Besides being a very sturdy structure, what I find most appealing about this place is the decor, the art everywhere, the historic design of the garden and lobby, the relative quiet compared to almost any other place in Thamel. The menu may not be distinctive, but breakfast is very... More

I was picked up by the hotel driver at the airport quite late at night despite my flight being quite delayed without any issues whatsoever, which was happily received on my end as I was quite tired from a long haul flight. I spent 4 nights here and my room overlooked the car park area and adjoining street which was... More

When we go to Kathmandu, we always return to the International Guest House. Just let them know your flight n7umber and they will give you a free pickup from the airport. We enjoy the hustle of Thamel, but it is nice to be able to escape into the lovely, quiet courtyard. I love to sit and read and drink ginger... More

Thanks for your love and care of us during this terrible time. You gave shelter to any who came from unsafe places. You made sure we were fed and safe and made calls out trying to organise our escapes. You, the managers and wonderful staff, made it as comfortable as possible for us and we thank you with love and... More

This has been my preferred hotel in Kathmandu for years but it is now suffering earthquake damage. Before returning here I phoned to check on conditions and was assured they were fully functional with hot and cold running water. What I found on arrival is that only 5 rooms were functional and that my room, along with the majority of... More
