“Cute and Quirky”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

All of the staff here are fantastic - it was quite cold during our stay and they were always willing to drag the propane tank heaters upstairs for me in the evenings. The breakfast is great and the masala omelettes are tasty. There's a great patio to sit outside in the evenings and beautiful art on the walls that you can purchase. It's situated a 10-min walk from Thamel, which is the tourist centre where all the shops are, so the hotel is nice and quiet. We walked back in the dark and had no problems. The owners were often around at breakfast for a chat and let me borrow their laptop charger too. Really great stay. Thanks!

Stayed for only a couple of nights late August '12 at Ting's/KTM but it was a pretty memorable stay. We and our ten year old -- a very seasoned traveler even at that young age, rates Ting's highly for their great hosts Annette and Thomas, their staff (bumped into BJ most whilst there) and even Ting's lovely cats!

As the hosts laid out clearly on their hotel blog, Ting's not pretending to be anything but a comfortable place to stay and we got that. To us what stood out was Ting's a great anchor (comfort, security and reliable first-hand information, not only on KTM but Beijing art scene etc etc) of a place especially travelling with children and/or to more exotic places like KTM. And soon at Yangon, we will look to be staying at their similar Ting's Yangon...

The first immediate reaction to Tings was "CUTE", more so cos we were 3 girls on trip. The location is great, as its in a midst of the city. Hosts are nice people, a total help on the cab bookings, arranging for pick ups etc.

This has so many cuddly lil places for you to sip a cup of tea, get lost in a book, or a chat. The interiors are very well done. We were also offered room heaters in the rooms and sitting areas, esp cos we visited in the winters.

Though the view is not that great, as this place is surrounded by residential houses on all sides, but its has a lot of quiet and peace.

Very helpful hosts, the food is good if you like continental food (mostly European), do give their bakes a try. They were yummy. I would not rate the breakfast as great, as I have had better.

You definitely need to keep a note of the electricity, as most of the time they are without power, and you cant even use a hairdryer on the back up power.

Room Tip: Ask for a bigger room in case you are more that 2 in a room. Also they charge differently for the ba...

I loved my stay in this hotel.The Staff and the management were very kind and helped us a lot. They even bought movie tickets for us! I would definitely go back just to stay in the hotel and eat their delicious breakfast and omelettes.

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.

Stayed here in the summer of 2012. Spent 1 week in the Sunny Lounge. The room was large and bright with laminate flooring, closet and a 3-piece bathroom. There is no air-conditioning but each room has an efficient fan. Tings is located in Lazimpat north of Thamel. This is a great choice if you want to avoid the chaos of Thamel but still access it quickly and easily. It's a 15 minute walk into Thamel or a 1.50CAD taxi ride. The hotel is clean, inviting and has a modern decor. The staff go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Breakfast (which is included in the room price) is excellent and filling. Guests can refill their water jugs anytime with filtered water and there is a communal fridge and kitchen. There are a few grocery stores close to the hotel. Getting to the hotel can be tricky as many cab drivers don't know where it is - let them know it's just down the alley next to Hotel Gangjong (near Nepali Chulo restaurant).
It was always such a relief to return to this hotel after a long day exploring Kathmandu. This hotel is good value - I hope to return one day.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor in the main house and side house provide more privacy and less noise.

Tings is a very eclectic guest house with lots of funky artwork and decorations. We stayed on the top floor, which was awesome. The house cats enjoyed chilling with us, and the lounge had a nice wood burning stove which kept the place warm. In our room we had our own propane heater to keep us warm. The water pressure on the top floor was a bit weak, and it took a while for the shower water to warm up. That is why I gave it a 4 out or 5.

Additionally, all the staff were super helpful and spoke good English. The breakfast was delicious and very healthy. The location is about a 15 minute walk to the Thamel area, but be warned that there are no sidewalks and the main street is under construction (poor infrastructure). We wore hiking boots to get to Thamel. Tings itself is down a small lane that not all the cab drivers know about, but it is in between the Radisson and Shangri-la hotels, which they will know.

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
