4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We lived in hotel on 21st and 22nd night dec 2014. Before booking we were little skeptical. But after we arrived, it felt it was good decision. Dinesh (at reception) was very helpful and courteous.
- Very nice rooms
- Helped us to book mountain flight at last moment
- Have power backup generator in case of power cut which is very frequent in Nepal
- Breakfast is average. Not that great.

All in all...for the kind of money i paid, i would definitely like to come back and stay here.

Room Tip: Mountain view room - 5th and 6th floor are good. Even though there's no lift....its not that b...

Nice sized rooms and clean. Hotel staff very friendly. The location was ideal with the choice of lots of restaurants close by. We stayed in December which was the low season. The frequent electricity cuts must have been a nightmare for the hotel. They had a generator which they would turn on if you wanted to make yourself a hot drink, with few people staying it would not have been cost effective leaving the generator on all the while.

Room Tip: The nearer the top of the hotel the hotter the water.

Great location, beautiful room, amazing views, friendly staff, good food, COLD BEER. All in Pokhara, one of the loveliest city's in Nepal. Hey! Why would I stay anywhere else?
Many restaurants are close by, they have great cold beer at the hotel, but there are a number of bars at he end of the street overlooking the lake, a great way to spend an evening of people watching.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better views.

The rooms are big, clean, no bed bugs - and trust me, it is important not to have such things in your room. The small balcony is an extra bonus. The location is good - 5 minutes walk to Fewa lake, but in a quiet area, in the same time.

We had chosen the honeymoon suite on the sixth floor - the view of the mountains was spectacular and you could see the impact of both sunset and sunrise on the mountains from the room. The room was well appointed with a private balcony. The room was very clean and had access to complimentary wifi. The only downside of the sixth floor was no elevator - not an issue but could be for some. The hotel is a short walk from Lakeside Road, but on the edge of the Lakeside commercial / touristy area - just 10 minute walk though to the centre of Lakeside The guys on the front desk were very helpful and arranged transport etc. Breakfast was OK - there are better places for breakfast just down the road.

Room Tip: Consider the honeymoon suite - great views of the mountains and private balcony - but no elevator to...

Hotel Orchid, Pokhara stands clearly off the charts for me. An amazing place to stay with all facilities there. We had a plan to stay there for 2 days but we stayed there for 3 instead.
The rooms are big and spacious and the place is just 5 mins walk from the lake and the market street. Despite being in the center you feel away from the clutter of the city and this makes this place the best choice
The owner and manager of the place Mr. Janak and his staff were nice and helped us plan the visit.

If Pokhara is a must visit place then Hotel Orchid is the must stay hotel!

Room Tip: Take a room that has the balcony facing the mountain/lake. No Elevators so, choose accordingly.
