Tings Lounge Hotel
Ranked #29 of 469 Kathmandu B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stayed 3 nights pre and post Pokhara in Kathmandu and was disappointed and shocked by everything in that city: so congested and polluted, dirty, dusty and crowded. But getting back to Tings after a long day of sightseeing was a real pleasure. The best thing about this place is the service, everybody is so happy and friendly and go the extra mile to make your stay very special. The rooms feel cosy and homey. The location is fine, I can't think of a good location in Kathmandu though, as there's dust and noise everywhere, but at least the hotel is in a little alley that literally makes you feel like being in this oasis the moment you step in. Highly recommended :)

Beautifully designed and well-thought hotel that is run by long-term travelers who know exactly how to bring peace, relaxation and awesome service, food with sense of being at home.
Staff were excellent and welcomed us so warmly and made us feel at home immediately. Complimentary cool drinks and wonderful smells coming from kitchen settled us in and we didn't leave the premises for 2 days.
Rooms were very clean and serene with fresh, luxurious linen. Beds nice and firm and 24 hour hot showers were a real treat, especially for the cost which would usually give you a filthy room in the madness of Thamel. The breakfast of home-baked breads, and spreads and herbal teas etc was splendid and a brilliant start to our day.
We would never stay anywhere else again...well done Ting, you have got it just right!!

Tings Lounge was a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were beautiful
and inviting. The gardens were a welcomed break from the concrete of the city. I would highly recommend Tings to travelers going to Nepal.

Absolutely love the concept of Tings. From the open plan social areas, simple traditional designs, and in-house art exhibitions to the work they are doing with locals, this was an inspiring place. We stayed in the corner suite on the second floor with a lovely little balcony and huge walk in shower room. We stayed in November so although the days were beautifully clear and hot the nights were pretty chilly, but we were given our own gas heater for the room, which was lovely and cozy. There are numerous public lounge areas in the creatively converted house, where you can relax and share stories with other guests and enjoy the simple yet tasty snacks menu. The owners have done a wonderful job of training the local guys who run the guesthouse with real personality and attention to detail. A little bit of a walk from Thamel, about 20mins one way, but I never board of the sights and sounds walking through the streets of Khatmandu, and the taxis are so cheap that you can get anywhere around the city for just a few pounds. A truly wonderful introduction to Nepal!

On our visit to Nepal, we stayed at Tings three separate times. This is an excellent place with air / garden common spaces, in a quiet neighbor hood, and excellent breakfasts with the best coffee we had in Nepal!

Would recommend to anyone with a travel gene that doesn't expect luxury accommodations.

This time we opted for the sunny backpacker room in the main building- a great choice.
Like last year this was a short stay pre- trek and, again, proved perfect.
The room I really liked- as stated, it's a sunny one. Bright decor, fresh white walls, comfortable beds and lots of natural light from 2 large windows. Good wifi reception.
Well situated near the guest kitchen with the bathroom just across the hall. I liked being in the main house mainly because of the proximity to kitchen and dining areas. If you want more privacy the other wing would be ideal.
Staff go above and beyond and are happy! They also have great personalities. Thomas and Annette were there and were also helpful and very welcoming. They run a great place. I like the feeling here.
Communal areas are nicely furnished and create an atmosphere where you can lounge around and meet travellers from all corners of the globe. On both occasions now we have met really good people and enjoyed a lot of interesting conversation.
Food is exceptional, breakfasts are really fresh and my mouth is watering thinking about the dinner menu.
As I said in the title - very much looking forward to a 3 rd visit.

This is a very nice guest house in the public areas ...the lounge and porches and balconies are lovely...the staff is very nice and try very hard to please you...the breakfast is wonderful with homemade bread and some days hot bagels...lunches and dinners were also delicious......
The location is just outside of Thamel...an easy walk...the main road is under construction so I wouldn't' walk it at night.... the rooms and bathrooms are very basic...a few pictures on the walls and a couple of hooks sure would help....some rooms in the main house have small private porches...the neighbors are loud but quiet down at night...not the dogs...if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs..overall a nice place ...

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
