Stayed 2 nights as a solo, female traveler and felt safe here. There is nothing remarkable, outstanding, or unusual about this hotel. Its looks are very average, but it is great value for the money.

THE GOOD...
Hotel is located on the backside of Thamel on a quiet street. No club noise at night.
Affordable. I got a double room for Rs.1000. Don't hesitate to bargain.
Some English channels on TV with good reception
Free wi-fi in rooms
AC worked great!
Clean

THE BAD...
Remember KTM experiences extensive power cuts/loadshedding daily, so TV, fans, AC, etc don't always work. Not a negative specific to the hotel, just a fact of life to remember when in KTM.

THE OTHER...
No restaurant or food available, but Thamel is full of great restaurants so this isn't an issue.
Only 3 of the hotels 16 rooms have AC - #201, 301, 401. None of the single rooms have AC.
Hot water takes a long time to get through the lines. I'd nearly finished my shower (@ 10 min.) when the hot water finally arrived. Let it run for a bit if you want hot water.

Room Tip: Only 3 of the hotels 16 rooms have AC - #201, 301, 401. None of the single rooms have AC.

Initially Nepal was a culture shock after a very long flight from Australia. However the next morning was a new day. The owners for Festoon Hotel, went to every imaginable length to make sure that we were attended and comfortable.

They ensured that we had arrangments for the day and if not they would facilitate any activity we required, a climb up to everest base camp, a trip to Pokhara, Chitwan even a tour to Tibet! and all the local trips around Kathmandu.

The boys in Festoon, would also show us the good places to eat and drink (without getting sick) inclusive of Crazy Burger. This place is a must, to die for ostrich burger, well priced safe food and great service.

The rooms at Festoon were basic, but were priced to take this into account, whilst they were basic, they were very clean and the shower worked, more than i could say for other hotels in the area!

If you are looking for well priced, affordable, clean accommodation, with a type of service that extends to no limits, Festoon is the place. BTW free WIFI. Don't waste your time searching other properties in town, because everyone always ends up here.
