I stayed in Hotel Family Home for a long stint, and it was wonderful.
I have visited Nepal four times now, and have stayed in six hotels in the Thamel area, as well as seen rooms in many others. Based on this, I am certain that Hotel Family Home offers the best tourist experience in terms of value, cleanliness, helpful and friendly staff - not to mention great views of the city from both the rooftop and from the front rooms, which all have balconies.
Rooms are spacious and extremely well-maintained, and furnished with tables, wardrobes and comfortable divan beds. The bathrooms are similarly spotless, with powerful showers that provide hot water 24/7 through a powerful filtration system that remedies Kathmandu's notorious water problems - be ware, many of the inferior hotels and guest houses in Thamel do not have this facility!
To round things off nicely, there is an Italian restaurant, Alchemy, on the ground floor of the building. The restaurant is independent of the hotel, but its friendly staff will gladly deliver food to your room on those lazy evenings, and the pizzas are easily as good as those offered by the more-famous Roadhouse Cafe and Fire & Ice Restaurant - well worth a try!
Can't recommend highly enough. A haven of quality in Thamel!
