We originally planned on staying with Hem at Family Peace House for two nights- but when we got there we were inundated with friendly, smiling, helpful and down to earth people which made us extend our stay. It is tucked away in a side street located just outside of Thamal, with no more than a 5 min walk to get... More

I stayed at 'Family Peace House' for one week in early August last week, I couldn't have asked for a better time or place to stay. The staff were very friendly and made all the visitors feel welcome. The location is great, it is just off of Thamel but the location is quite and the street has a nice place... More

Family peace house is your perfect choice, if you're looking for a relaxed place outside of busy and loud thamel but still in short walking distance (5min). It offers clean rooms, a good WiFi connection and areas to hang out and meet other guests like a rooftop terrace with an amazing view over Kathmandu and the surrounding mountains. It's also... More

What was supposed to be a five-day stay got extended to two weeks and each and every day was wonderful. The owners Bisal and Hem are so accommodating sharing information, tips, even their own breakfast at times. Their breakfast options are soooo good!

After my EBC trek during mid April I was here with my friends for 6 days and I must say we had a great, great time at Family Peace House. The staffs of FPH Bimal, Hemraj, Pradip, Krishna and the team and the place gave the feel like staying at my own place and I'm part of their family. Location:... More

Off but near the centre Thamel shopping area. 10 min walk you can access most famous restaurants and bars. Friendly staff there, and the two owners are licensed trekking guides. Bimal took me for a 5 days Pokhara and Annapurna trip. Though the weather was not so friendly, it was an great experience. Have not tried any food there, but... More

Nice place, good atmosphere, you feel safe there. I had top room 402, wonderful. Bit of noise from neighboring guesthouse's, but no fuzz. Up the road supercheap, local dining. Lots of foreigners, but away from usual "Thamel-crowd".. Go for it...

I had a really good stay at Family Peace House. It runs like a typical Kathmandu guest house. Your food might take a while (over an hour for dinner one night) and you might have to wait 30 mins for a roll of toilet paper, but it's Nepal! Just sit back, relax and wait. There are a lot of people... More
