The bad: Not sure if every door is as problematic, but I was in room 302 and I had to struggle to open the door every... More

We were a group of 7 guys, visited for NYE 2014. The staff was really friendly and courteous. They let us check in way before time. Though the location is a bit tricky, you might miss the signboard, but i forgot everything when i saw the rooms. The rooms were really nice and big, not so cold as you would... More

We first stumbled across festoon about 4 years ago and we stay here whenever we return to Kathmandu. It's location on Z-street is perfect as you're away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy the chaos of Thamel. Babu has always been so kind to us and the service has always been great. Festoon is one of... More

Hotel Festoon is a perfect budget hotel for bag-packer. We stayed several nights before and after our December trekking adventure in the Himalayas. From the first hour to the last few minutes, the staff of Hotel festoon made us feel at home and among friends. They sent us to Everest Base Camp with good guide. We feel very lucky to... More
