I have stayed in many of the Guest Houses in Thamel including the Kathmandu Guest House. The International Guest House is clearly superior to any of them. The hotel is offset from the central streets and the location buffers the noise from the nightclubs at night. You hear none of the noise or the barking of the dogs all of... More

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
