“A nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We arrived on the first day and found out that the room was not what we expected ( booked with agoda) The staff immediately changed the room for us and told us that there would be no fee for upgrading on the first night and that we could talk to the hotel's manager in the next morning. The hotel's manager was understanding and offered to upgrade the room for us for the rest of our stay ( 3 more nights ) for 30 $ which we had bargained to 10 $ and he agreed. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Bathroom was clean and the hot water system was working functionally, however the water running out of the tap smelled rusty . I guess maybe the whole Kathmandu's water has the same smell (?) Our room was at the front side of the hotel which was facing Thamel street so we could hear the noisy sound of people shouting and the cars' horns every night ( ear plugs are recommended for people who have trouble sleeping like me) The boys who worked at the receptions were very friendly, polite and helpful. We have tried the breakfast and it tasted fine. Over all this hotel is a good place to stay, worth the $ you pay and I will recommend my friends to stay here.

Room Tip: If you're booking via agoda, make sure you read the condition thoroughly, they can be quite tric...

The service was great and right from the start I felt the friendly nature of the staff its family run and very peaceful. The room was very clean and neat. I was helped with planning my trek immidiatley as well as served breakfeast and refreshments. I would recommend anyone traveling there first time to stay here.

I ended up staying at Pariwar twice during my trip to Nepal for two reasons, one was the great location in Thamel and second was because the staff were so friendly, polite and willing to help me out with anything I needed. The rooms were clean I stayed in a/c room and not a/c room and both were fine, in fact for September I didnt really need an a/c. The second time I showed up without a bookign and the staff were very quick with getting us a room ready which was great. The only problem was the water in the bathroom wasn't the best but from what I understood they were doing some improvment renovations so Im sure it will be fine

Room Tip: stayed at the pariwar two times during our trip in Nepal because if its great location in Kathmandu...

Pariwar B&B was a great place to stay. It is in the middle of the action in Kathmandu's Thamel district, filled with different places to eat and chop. They also take care of you when you are touring the area and making plans for the rest of your visit to Nepal. I really appreciated the airport pick-up and drop-off service.

Lots of small issues presented themselves. After reconfirming our arrival, our rooms were still not ready. For 4 people, they tried to show us to a room with three single beds. The owner gave us two "super deluxe" rooms, to correct the situation. The super deluxe rooms do not come with drinking water, pillow cases, wash cloths, hand towels or coat hangers. The "hot" water was hot, only in the evening. The airconditioning worked well, and the rooms were clean. We stayed in a suite for the entire stay. Most of what we ordered for meals was unavailable, or forgotton. A cup of coffee took 32 minutes to arrive. The food that was delivered, was bad, worse and terrible. We had been in Nepal for several days by the the time we arrived at the Pariwar, and had experienced less expensive hotels and food service, with far superior value, prior to our arrival here. This hotel was a disappointment on multiple levels. We went down the street to Le Bistro for breakfast on our last mornng, and wished we had done so from the first day. We asked the owner about airport transfers. He assured us we would have a " super deluxe " ride, compliments of the hotel. What we actually had was a mini cab, with our luggage on our laps, and our gear on the roof. And, a 600.00 bill for the ride. Let's not forget the lovely "welcome" drinks the owner offered us, which we received a bill for upon departure.

Room Tip: As a place to simply rest, the location is excellent. The super deluxe rooms are on the fourth floor...

Don't let the entrance to this little b&b put you off. Having stayed in a few hotels in Kathmandu this was certainly the cleanest and best located. The hotel is situated in the heart of the tourist area Thamel opposite one of Kathmandu's best restaurants the roadhouse.

The rooms are clean and come with towels (a rarity!).

The staff are young, friendly and speak good English which is a real help upon your arrival. There is a roof terrace for breakfast and chilling out on after a long day where the staff will sit with you and play cards or offer advice.

The area can be noisy but this is a small sacrifice to be in such a good location.

Finally a shout out to kewal giri our trekking porter, a patient and friendly guy who led us through the mountains! (Kewal is the brother of the owner and can be arranged through the hotel).

We were not very pleased with this B & B. Ok, room was clean (only one blanket and no pillowcases) and location was good but we did not get was was promised, they promise a lot. At first they tried to charge us 600 rupias of the transport from the airport (which is included), also they first said that our breakfast is not included.. which was included in our voucher. Full english breakfast? -did not see in two days. No drinking water in the room (which was promised), no safe, no hot water. We needed an extra towel. My husband did not know that all costs were already paid in advance, so he paid extra 30 dollars at the reception as they charged - for the towel and extra breakfast and of course no receipt. We were glad to get out.
