“HOTEL FESTOON THE BEST HOTEL IN KATHMANDU!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for a month whilst in Kathmandu.Its in a great location,right in the centre but down a quiet street so you can have a good nights sleep with no traffic beeps,horns or late night party goers making a racket!
I was sick for maybe a week when I was here and Babu the hotel manager and the receptionist Ramesh did not hesitate to help!From bringing me teas,food,blankets,water and coffee to hot water bottles nothing was too much.They checked on me to see if I was ok.
I was travelling alone and it was so nice knowing if I needed help they were there.
Babu and all the staff are so friendly,helpful and always have a bright smile on their face.The room was clean,free wifi,hot showers and tasty food from the ridiculously cheap restaurant next door.
I come to nepal every year to volunteer at a disabled centre so if any of you out there want to get involved and volunteer for free message me!
I will be staying at hotel festoon for my next trip and recommending it to EVERYONE I meet!

I have just spent one week at Festoon Hotel. It was my 1st time at this charming hotel. Festoon is a Budget hotel but have good facilities. Service is excellent, any issues remedied quickly. I lost my hot water and within an hour of notifying management, an element was replaced and everything fixed.

All in all, I can recommend Festoon Hotel as a wonderful place to stay if you want a delightful Budget hotel with a truly Balinese feel

Great location in Thamel, just off one of the main drags so its a little quieter. But more importantly, the service was great. Babu, is the manager, and he's super helpful, friendly, and trustworthy. He helped me with finding some rental gear at affordable prices for my trek and I also stored some baggage at Festoon (no charge). Would highly recommend.

It was a very good stay and for sure i will recommend this place! Great thanks!

Centrally located, on the quiet section of Z Street. I was picked up free at the airport, with a clear sign. The room was clean and comfortable, and everything is kept in good working order. Very hot water; toilet and electric lights/sockets worked well. However, my 1000 NRS single room had no tv. Otherwise no complaints whatever for a small inexpensive hotel in the heart of Thamel, which is generally not the case with many other similarly priced places. The owner, Babu Thapa, was very friendly and helpful, arranging a porter for our trek.
