I waited 15 mins for someone to appear at the recption. Got a room where you had to climb VERY VERY steep steps. NO PORTER OR BELL HOP Carried it myself. NO coffee maker. NO ROOM SERVICE After I shouted at the only employee of the hotel he himself brought the food up since there is no other employee except maybe a cook. At 5 am we got up to have a bath and to my horror....NO HOT WATER. Later after I finished my bath with ice chilling water (2 deg C) he offered to get a bucket of hot water. A terrible experience
Very old hotel, not maintained properly, stayed here 2 days, staff very cooperative, chef was good, food served is simple, freshly cooked, served hot, very satisfying, rotis also available. Rooms carpets worn-out. They give good rooms only through net booking, our was booking through a agent so they provided their not so good room. At the same time Jomsum is a very small place no star hotel is available. So cant expect much. But newly constructed hotels are better. The muktinath is having better hotels. They will arrange all taxi etc but with commission. Just opposite airport.
I came to Jomson after spending a night in Muktinath. I had crossed the pass in bad weather, and was keen to experience the best civilization had to offer. I didnt have much expectations from Jomson, but tripadvisor gave good ratings to Hotel Oms Home. I walked into a cosy courtyard, and so far it resembled a home stay. Then I noticed a cafe that opened on the main road, adjacent to the hotel which also opened into the courtyard. On the right, there was a glass walled dining area. All three places had great views of the Annapurna range. Just that the cafe and dining area were warm places to soak in the views. The courtyard is great for al-fresco dining in the afternoon. Walking further inside, I was greeted with aesthetically pleasing decor. Thoughtfull appointed, with paintings from local artists, flowering plants and paneled walls. A photo of Shri Amitabh Bachhan behind the reception informed me that along-with his crew had stayed in the hotel for the filming of the movie Khuda Gawah in 1984. It was then that I was met by Shri Krishna Subedi, the manager of the hotel. I am writing this review because of him. I stay in a lot of hotels, and most of them have a simple and unremarkable transaction. Once in a while you come across little gem that makes you make plans to visit again. Oms Home is a well run hotel, crisp linen, clean and cosy rooms, clear communications to ensure expectations are managed well, and then the little flourishes that delight. The Hotel has its small apple orchard and Hari from the team gave me a tour of the hotel and shared yarns about the magical land around Jomson. A special mention should be made of Shri Subedi. Like a quintessential British butler, Shri Subedi is very refined in his interactions, while communicating a warmth and care that is common the the hospitality of the Indian subcontinent. He was warm and friendly, but without any exaggerated action or speech. The value he brings is also demonstrated in the quiet efficiency of the staff. The food was great, place was clean and the hotel is an example of tightly run ship. I stayed there in September 2021, and as the worst of winter (the hotel can handle the weather in the depths of winter, I cant!) is behind us, I find myself planning another trip to the Jomson, primarily to experience the hospitality and warmth of Hotel Oms Home.…
Om's home is two minute walk to the airport. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Very polite and friendly owner and staffs. Cozy and homely environment. The only hotel that has a heated bed throughout my trek from Pokhara, Ghandruk, Ghorepani, Tato pani, Muktinath and upper mustang. Food is very fresh and delicious. Himalayan Java cafe is inside the premises. I highly recommend it to everyone. This is gonna be my place everytime i visit Jomsom.
We stayed here twice and arranged our stay directly with them quite a long time before but all the communications were excellent and we also used them to arrange a guide. our guide was Hari and he was brilliant, he met us at the airport, and had a good plan organised for the whole five days and we had a superb time. the hotel is interesting and spacious, we were quite early in the season so still quite cold but they supplied hot water bottles and hot showers were excellent too. the restaurant provided excellent meals as well, with a good menu veg or non veg and a fire to keep you warm. we couldn't fault the place and when the return flight couldn't make it in they arranged a jeep return journey to Pokhara immediately so we didn't lose any time, huge thank you to you all and Hari, a superb guide a great time thanks mate.…
A+ accommodation ( best room, very hot water for shower, great view of mountain, nice food, best internet connection), nice place to stay . Really recommend for overnight stay. Thanks for good services
It's the best place to stay in Jomson. Very nice restaurant & coffee shop. Jomson is a very small place but with Oms Home you will be taken care off. As we were vegetarian we doubted what to eat but they served very good food. All staff are excellent (Krishna) Asst Manager he is very good, he take care of all guests personally. He is always smiling and ready to help. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Dont stay anywhere else apart Oms Home in Jomson.
This is an old establishment with lots of character. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Good wifi. Excellent coffee shop on the premises with entertainment at night. It was a lot of fun to stay here and there isn't a lot of night time activity in Jomsom
With huge gratitude and fondness, I highly recommend both Om’s Home (Jomsom) and the Red House (Kagbeni) as clean, comfortable and welcoming hotels in the Mustang Valley. Over the past 5 years I’ve stayed at both hotels, multiple times, while working in the region. I’ve stayed there in Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall - always solo. The staff are warm and generous, the food is delicious (seriously good dal bhat, pizza (ask for extra spinach on top) and veggie burgers. They always have cold beer ready. And their smiles are deeply genuine. I’ll post here some photos - one of my favorite room at Om’s, another of Nilgiri mountain, seen out the window of my favorite coffee shop in the whole world (no exaggeration there - it’s Himalayan Java, part of the hotel, where the manager, Sanish, plays beautiful blues on the guitar and jazz on the keyboard, and where the walls are covered with a gallery-full of oil and acrylic paintings of the Upper Mustang landscape by the massively talented Dhwoj Gurung. Not to mention the coffee, which is absolutely top notch). I’m also posting a view out my guest room window, and lastly a shot of a group of tibetan children all dressed up in their traditional clothes, walking by the hotel on their way to a Bon ceremony. One last word about the Red House in Kagbeni - there is a guest room at the very top of the building that is gorgeous both inside, and from inside looking out. Truly breathtaking views. Total privacy. Modern even, and extremely clean, and yet somehow it’s minimalist style is perfectly aligned with the town’s very old and true magic. Om’s Home, Red House - thank you for your kindness in hosting me so warmly over these last many years. As you know, I can’t wait to return! …
Om's home is the best choice in Jomsom.The hotel has been around since 1976.It has a nice central seating area and rooms are around it.They have different categories of rooms so please check before you book. The room that i was in was although small had clean bed sheets and pillow,bathroom was clean and the resto serves good food. The Himalayan Java Cafe attached to the hotel has the best coffee and they also jam up in the evenings. Overall a good hotel with nice staff.
