i am immensely proud to write my very FIRST tripadvisor review on tings lounge hotel, kathmandu, nepal. amid the chaos & third world madness of kathmandu lies this white-drenched haven where you are bound to feel safe, comfortable & maybe even pampered. everything from the wonderfully laid out, feng shui rooms to the thought-provoking artwork to the warm bread they bake every morning for breakfast is just idyllic. and the tea! don't get me started on the tea, they have over 20 types of organic, delicious teas! the guests this place draws in are the most wonderful people who lead the most fascinating lives. i'm truly grateful that i made fast friends with a lot of people from a LOT of different countries. i'll make it a point not to dwell on the drawbacks to tings but in order to be fair, i will mention them briefly. internet connection here is not the best, except in the common area. tings also has three free-roaming cats whom i personally LOVED, but they can be a burden on people who are allergic to cats. these drawbacks are so trivial though compared to the many, many advantages tings has to offer you. who on earth uses internet when they're traveling?? right? c'mon people! as derivative as this may sound, tings was everything i expected & more!! you will not regret your stay here. i will come back to tings the next time i visit nepal, that's for damn sure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tings Lounge Hotel is neither a backpacker’s hangout nor an ordinary business hotel, but something in between where the convenience of a business hotel goes hand in hand with the relaxed and comfortable ambiance of what the few luxury backpacker place you’ll find around the world. We have 10 rooms of different sizes - 4 in the newly built front house and 6 in the cozy funky-like main house from the 70s. All rooms have private bathrooms – but for the two backpacker rooms the bathrooms are not attached. And a small 2-room flat for long term stays can also be arranged. All rooms have stylish interior design: International simplicity with a Nepali/Asian touch. On the first floor in the main house the residents can relax in the large living room as well as on the huge outdoor terrace. The garden with all its flowers, cozy corners, hammocks and terraces will be for all guests. We serve breakfast and if he has the time and feels like it Thomas will make dinner for our hotel guest. If he doesn’t don’t panic! There are plenty of good restaurants and eateries nearby. Or if you prefer to eat on the premises we will of course organize take away. If you feel like cooking feel free to use our kitchen. There is of course free Wi-Fi, and we can provide photocopies, scans, projector, meeting facilities etc. So if you are on business and need a place for your meeting, and find the business hotels too big and too formal, Tings is definitely an option. If you after reading this still can’t imagine Tings – a journey through places that have inspired over the years might help. Anyway, come by and have a look for yourself. It’s open and the menu is delicious with reasonable prices. ... more less
