Just as the name implies. Everyone was very welcoming, and made us feel at home! Clean, and continental breakfast was great too. Location in Thamel was perfect walking distance through the many sights and smells to Durbar Square and Swayambhunath as well!

Hotel friends home? --more like friends home, period! Hotel friends home is the most perfect place to stay as a first-time visitor to Nepal and Kathmandu. The staff are all very friendly--they first met us at the airport--and then offered us plenty of suggestions (restaurants, etc.) nearby. The staff also helped us to organize a driver to Pokhara. The hotel...

I stayed here for 2 nights and will definitely stay again later on in my trip. Checking in was painless and all the staff were courteous, friendly, and super helpful! The room was really clean, the bed was comfortable, and I looked forward to the breakfast everyday (in part because of the friendly staff, but also the food). I would...

Loved staying here! The staff are truly friends and treat you with the utmost hospitality. We were a party of 4 from Canada - they picked us up from the airport and were super accommodating to our late arrival. The rooms are very clean and spacious - really good price for all the amenities you get! The front desk staff...

Thamel can be quite overwhelming and stressful due to its small streets and busyness. But the moment I arrive at Hotel Friends Home, I feel a sense of relief and peace. I am always greeted by the friendly, available and hardworking staff. They never cease to amaze me with their commitment and willingness to accommodate the needs of their guests....

Picked us up from the airport. We quickly checked into the hotel. The stay was wonderful. Checking out was simple and straightforward - NO hidden fees. Dropped us off at the airport. Do yourself a favor... stay here.

Please do not read the previous bad review on this hotel as I witnessed the scene and it is incorrect. I have stayed here for two weeks now with work and so i know the place like a home. The staff here cannot do enough for you which is very reassuring when new to this city. The room is comfortable,...

I normally stay in hostels as I like to keep costs down but I needed to make a few client Skype calls at the beginning of my trip so I decided to book a private room in a hotel. The wifi was excellent and I had two 1.5 hour Skype calls with video (better than my flat in London!) Everything...

My wife and I stayed here twice on our trip to Nepal. The staff made arrangements for a wonderful guide around Kathmandu who spoke perfect English and was so knowledgeable. The hotel staff were very accommodating to our needs. The food at the hotel was super. We heartily recommend this great little gem.
