We were booked into this hotel one night only after having spent a long day at the Kathmandu airport waiting for a flight to Lukla to begin our trek. It was such a relief to walk into a clean room after the filth of the previous hotel our tour operator Corsa Nepal had booked us into. How this hotel had availabity was our good luck and the prices were comparative.
Clean, very clean with a lovely little sitting area in the room. The young boy at the front desk eagerly had a pot of tea brought to us at no charge and with a huge smile. After our experience at the Kathmandu Resort Hotel, this place was like heaven. Everything smelled clean and looked pristine. The shower was not contained and is representative of the showers we experienced all over Asia but we carried rubber soled slippers with us so wet bathroom floors were not problematic. There was hot water so that made us very happy. We had a very restful sleep here and the temperature in the room was perfect. There were fans on the ceiling but we didn't really need them.
Right outside our room was a computer set up for guest access. it was not noisy from guests coming and going and the connection was pretty fast. Nice amenity to offer guests.
We were lucky enough to meet the owner during our breakfast. He was a very unassuming man and very gracious. The breakfast was more than satisfactory and cooked up in a kitchen just off of the sitting area. it was a relaxing experience.
There was a comfortable sitting area located just up the stairs. if you got tired of your room there was this lovely option available.
This was a great option for carrying up luggage. We used the stairs but we did note the elevator.
Perfect. Everything was accessible. Nice Italian Restaurant right out front with great tasting food. After a long day we were pretty lazy and this was a great option.
I'd highly recommend this place and would return here in a heartbeat. Thamel is crazy busy and this place is a little haven of calm. Most importantly, you feel like a honoured guest and are treated so respectfully. Most certainly Hotel Family home was the highlight of our two visits to Kathmandu.
