Festoon Hotel
Ranked #37 of 476 Kathmandu B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Hello Dear all,

Anybody out there who wants to go to Nepal and wants to spend great holiday in thamel in Kathmandu, I suggest you to try in Festoon Hotel in thamel.

I had great time in Festoon Hotel.

It was amazingly clean and peace room.
I could use unlimited 24 hours free wi-fi internet.
There are rooms with attatched bathroom or separate bathroom. Some attatched bathroom has bath tub with 24 hours hot water heating system. In November winter month walking in the street and wandaring arround in thamel before i went to bed I used to spend atleast an hour in the hot bath tub which was amazingly warm.

If you are Car, motor bike or cycle lover you can find few places where you can have it on rent. I rented a mountain Bicycle for 10 $ per-day which was fully in good condition. The Trafic was hell but I saw the government was building and stretching roads in some locations.
I should explain more facilities of Festoon hotel than my own interest,
so ofcourse Festoon Hotel has free parking facility for cars and bikes.
I should say people working there are very nice and friendly. I never hesitated to ask any kind of help from them especially for the facilities they have mentioned on their list.

Good luck

We found this place after checking out quite a few sites and got a good price for the rooms.

Pros: good price, clean for nepal standards, great location in the heart of the Thamel, good wifi signal and one of the best hot showers in nepal (24h).
Cons: The toilet didnt work at first but they fixed it at the moment, the inside bathroom window cannot be close, hot water flows after about 10 minutes.

For sure not the best place, but at least one of the best for the price (we paid around 700 NRP for a double)

Located at the tourist hub, clean and tidy rooms, friendly staffs, Festoon Hotel is more than a budget hotel within your budget. During my trip to Pokhara and Nagorkot in Nov 8-13 I had the experience staying this hotel. They managed my air port pickup and bus ticket as well. One can have dining, shopping and other amenities in the close vicinity. During Power Shortage they provided emergency backup power.

Thanks to all staffs of Festoon.

I stayed here for two nights in August. The hotel is no frills: no restaurant, no staff trying to sell you excursions and laundry is across the street (for 50rupees/kilogram). It was exactly what I wanted: an inexpensive but comfortable room with a hot shower and satellite television to watch a movie or two. The staff were accommodating and got me a good rate (for Thamel) for a taxi to the airport. My room was small, but comfortable. The hotel was clean and quiet. A much better deal, price-wise, than other comparable hotels, accommodation-wise. Two thumbs up.

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.
