Having no frame of reference for what is normal in KTM, I booked this hotel on hotels.com before arriving in Nepal. The place is tidy and the rooms are nice enough, but throughout the rest of our trip we stayed at places that were nicer in KTM for half and often less than half the price of Pariwar. If you don't mind spending the extra money, I don't think you'll regret it. Also, we left a backpack with them when we went trekking and when we got back it took them nearly a half hour to locate it. All's well that ends well, but it was pretty stressful thinking they had lost our stuff for half an hour. If you are planning on doing a trek, I would suggest that you skip the meeting with Amish (the brother of the owner, apparently) and go find someone else. We booked with Amish for a 20 day trek and we finished in 13 days. In our meeting her made it very clear that if we went over 20 days we could just pay him the extra upon our return and if we finished early he would just wire us the difference. When we did finish our trek he was "unreachable". What? What if something had actually been wrong? His business partner just kept telling us "this is not my deal". 3 or so days later, when we finally were able to get in contact with Amish, he made it incredibly difficult for us to get our money: said he was going to western union it in 1 hour, so in 2 hours we went to western union and he hadn't done it yet. When he finally did get us our money, he had us walk a few miles across Pokhara to some other random hotel where the guy went who knows where and came back with our money, but not all of it. Amish said that he needed to keep some of the balance he owed us for "taxes and things". If you mention that you're going to be trekking, Amish will probably be meeting you for breakfast the following day.
