“She is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was my second time i stayed in this Hotel. I like the warm and private atmosphere. Karen takes care personally of every Guest, she goes out for trekking with them, allways has time for a talk. The Coffe from the Coffe Farm is the best and also the Nepali Stuff is kind, fast and friendly. I highly recommend this Hotel while your stay in Pokhara

Our stay (two nights) was short, but long enough for Pokhara. Beautiful scenery and the rooftop terras of the hotel is great in the morning for the sunrise. When we arrived at the hotel, we noticed that we were the only guests. January is a quick month and Karin, the owner was not there.The place looked as if it needed some refreshing actions. The young man who checked us in (and is basicly running the hotel day and night) is nice and helpful, but the atmosphere was lacking at the place. Not only because it was empty, but it was kind of a cold place. Hardly any electricity (pretty normal in Nepal), but even then it took some time to get the generator started. We did feel that for two people, the generator was not worth it. Anyway, it will be different in summer, but we have to be honest in the reviews and share our experience and feeling.

As previous posts have indicated, the hotel in clean, well located and managed by a helpful German women. However, I left after finding another hotel (Sacred Valley Inn) which was every bit as good in every way(better showers in fact) but at $15, exactly half the price of the Mt Fuji.

A really great small hotel run by German management (thank you Karen), with well-trained local staff. About 200 metres up a side road from the main Pokhara Lakeside strip with plenty of restaurants, bars and views of the lake.
The hotel has 3 floors and an iron spiral staircase to the roof which commands a great and pretty much unobstructed view of the peaks in one direction and the lake in the other.
Evenings watching the sun turn the snows on the peaks a pinky gold was magical. And breakfast time was nearly as good, with a fine selection of food choices too (fruit plate, eggs, cheeses and tomato, bread and jam, coffee/tea). All very well done.
The room was large with a big shower wet room style bathroom with consistent hot water.
The beds are quite hard, but I'd rather that than broken springs.
There is an interior small lounge area, and a few balconies if you seek some privacy from other guests, many of whom are German. The hotel generally does not accept bookings from large groups, so all is peace and civility!
Karen conducts daily 7am yoga sessions on the roof on a daily basis and is also very helpful in providing advice on local restaurants and transport.
This would be a perfect place to recover after a trek, or just to chill and soak up the scenery.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor as the staircase setup requires upper floor guests to walk past all the ground fl...

Mount Fuji is very well located, in Lakeside but in a quiet street.
The guesthouse is nice with great terasses and a wonderful view on the mountains.
Breakfast is very good (especially looking at the Annapurnas on the sunny terasses), but take your time to choose between the numerous items (we missed the pancakes).
Rooms and bathroom are honest. My only concern would be that it is not like heaven for sensitive/allergic people as the floor is covered by carpets.
In case you don't like your pillow, ask Karen, she can change it for a harder or softer one.
The staff is extremely nice and helpful.

Room Tip: My only concern would be for allergic people (carpet) otherwise it is OK.

We stayed at Mount Fuji Hotel after a 14 days trek in Nepal. It was the perfect place to rest and enjoy Pokhara. We stayed five days there. The hotel is at the end of dead end street, very quiet but 2 minutes from the busy Lakeside.
The rooms a very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated.
Karen, the german owner, has been in Nepal for a few years and has been traveling in the country a lot. She can be a great help for organizing treks and other activities around Pokhara and Nepal. She offers free meditation and yoga classes on the rooftop where the view on the Lake and the surrounding mountains is amazing.
Last but not least, we got there the best breakfast we had since we have been traveling in Nepal and India.
We wish we would come back soon!

We had a very pleasureful stay here and even changed our travel plans to stay longer. Because of the warm and friendly care of Karen and her staff we felt so comfortable and got to know so many other nice and interessting people as never before in a hotel.
Karen also supported us to find an good trekking guide, she also offers daytrips around Pokhara to beautiful but not crowded areas, which are a real alternative to those, who don´t go trekking.
Every morning we enjoyed the roof top view to the lake and the mountains while having a delicious breakfast. Sleeping was relaxing and quiet, in the morning you can hear the birds singing. We couldn´t have found it better!

Room Tip: During our stay of about two weeks we had three different rooms, because we went away to go trekking...
