I was in Hotel Festoon back in november 2019. At that time it was correct for the price we payed. I went back this year and we had the surprise of our life ! All rooms smelled really bad, moisture and humidity in every corner of the 'hotel'. Most of the toilets didn't flush. Water dripping in every bathroom, no warm water coming out of most of the tabs. The bedsheets were really dirty, reeking of people who slept in it before us. Empty bottles of beer between the bed and the wall. And lots of insects in bathrooms and bedrooms. Above this all, loud noice EVERY night INSIDE the lobby of the hotel: people come here to party at night and it makes it impossible to sleep. It doesn't make me angry, it makes me sad, because the owner of the hotel is a kind man, very friendly as is the little remaining staff. They do there best but it is obvious that there is no money at all to repare rooms, bathrooms, to hire proper staff to clean and to prepare the rooms. My guess is that COVID did a great job here. I wish someone could help these people back on there feet and get FESTOON back at the lever they were 4 or 5 years ago.

Hidden in one of the many streets in Thamel you will find this hotel. Second time I am staying here. This time for 12 days. Rooms are clean and the Beds are good. Some music you can here in the night, but we are in the center where ‘young’ people come together end enjoy the moment. The staff is friendly and helpful. Now they have a Restaurant (Thamel Dhawa) linked to it in which you get a good breakfast or a delicious dinner. Remember the name - more great things happening soon here in the Restaurant I am been told .

For 2 days there was no one available on the terrace to serve breakfast. The rooms were not clean. Not even soap was provided. Noisy at night but it depends on what time one goes to bed. It is a safe enough place to leave your belongings however (not cash or valuables though). The shower did not have hot water. I would not come here again.

I went to Kathmandu for the first time by myself recently. Choosing a hotel was hard, because I knew nothing of the area or standards. I chose Festoon based on positive reviews, and I'm very glad I did. My room was spacious and clean, with AC and ceiling fan to keep it cool. The rooftop was great, offering nice views of the city and mountains. The hosts were amazing - very nice and eager to offer help. I spent a lot of time talking to them and felt very welcome and taken care of. The location was great, right in Thamel surrounded by bars, restaurants, and shops. Festoon is within walking distance of Durbar Square and Swayambunath (Monkey Temple), and it's very easy to find taxis to other places. I didn't do any trekking, but the hosts were ready to help if I wanted to. Overall, I loved staying here and coming back to my room each day after exploring Kathmandu. I highly recommend Festoon.

Traveled to Kathmandu for a dance tour with my group. For which Hotel Festoon luckily turned out to be the best stay in terms of location and staff friendliness. The hotel is centrally located and is in the heart of the Thamel Market which makes it to be a walking distance from various attraction in the town. Would surely return soon to have their hospitality.
