“Good place to prepare Himalayan trip,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Festoon Hostel is situated in the Thamel,this hotel in the z-street ,so from hotel to go any where not diffecult, just come out from hotel…there are always rixa & taxi but from hotel also you can make good deal to go by transport any where, they do have every day kathmandu sightseeing trip,
so You can prepare yourself here on a trip to Himalaya trekking ,hiking,chitwon safari,rafting etc..but they don’t have very oftenly bunjy trip…I thing they also handover to last resort, they do have very well trekking guide & porter,There is nice little restaurant at toop . Hostel is very nice,cleane,hot water,wi-fi not much noise cheap and breakfast is in price. There is solar hot water,
cost is fine they do have $ 10 to 25 $ per room, different room has different price, staff are well ..friendly & helpful, hotel festoon I like that place, I would like to very heartily recommend this hotel to every traveler …who like to stay in better price & best sleep ,thanks a lots festoon hotel & all the staff,

Room Tip: top of hotel they have one single room but out side bathroom...if you are single...that is perfect,

Dear Rakim

Thank you very much for your feedbackm, sepcally you liked our hotel and
Your comments about Room, wi-fi, hot shower, Price of different room
and Brekafast.......make me soooo happy which i cant explain in word, even i would like to
inform that as soon as we gonna make a good room in 6th floor, it ll be in-front of Garden, ll be out side bathroom but m sure it ll be clean, quite, good view of valley and ll be best for long stay....
Anyway We will most definitely be more sensitive in the future to provide a calm and
relaxing environment, when pointed out to us by our guests.
We look forward to welcoming you back!

Thank you so much

I'm living now for almost 1 year in Nepal on different places, but my main-point is still visiting Festoon Hotel in Thamel. Always welcome and rooms, showers and internet are available. Even in the buzzy seasons they are very helpful to help with roomspace and giving you nice service. Last months they re-made the whole entrance and created a very nice lounge-area at groundfloor to sit down and have nice meetings with lots of different people.

Room Tip: In tourist-seasson make reservation to be sure of the room; And after trekking/living in other place...

I gues this is one of the excllent place to spend night,day & morning,I spend more then week , I went there as gust but I back my country as a family of festoon hotel, price was good for me, I paid $ 18 per night including breakfast, I weak up early morning & walk up to roof toop to see the kathmandu city view, they do have relly nice rofftop garden rasturant ,
One thing I rely like this hotel lobby , they do have nice decuration ,every floor nice sofa & table where I can use my laptop coz they do have strong wi-fi, roof toop rastuarant is nice they cook good food in a cheap cost, if you go out other food place price is more then doubble , most of the time they give for the tourist free cup of nepali tea(chiya), hotel manager Ramkrishna provied all the needed information for all the tourist,one day in my room the light didn’t work..i tell him about that & so fast he called electrician & fix the light,
Some time hotel teliphone doesn’t work in room, hope they make better now,any way I like this hotel coz better location ,better price, better hot water best hotel staff, mr Ramesh he is relly nice to all, I never forget him & all hotel staff, I hope I can be there again soon, I heartly recommend to this hotel ,thank you all, namaste,
