My friend and I found this hotel on trip advisor and decided to stay one night before we leave for Malaysia. I found the Hotel to be very nice, clean, and affordable. My favorite part of the hotel was the rooftop, and we can see mountain and whold kathmandu valley. It was definitely worth the one night and was centerly located in thamel. The hotel provided complimentary Airport pick up but you guys mostly have to be there 2nights. Overrall, if you can get a room, it's worth it.

If you've been to Thamel, you'll know it's near impossible to find a good and cheap accommodation with basic things like hot water and a comfy bed. Festoon Hotel has all of this and is located in an ideal spot in Thamel.
My friends and I stayed here twice because we were so impressed and met a few other hotel guests who felt the same way.
Having said that, don't expect luxury, just something much nicer than anything else in Thamel for that price.
Staff are very friendly and will help out in whichever way they can.
Remember to negotiate the room price before booking! Don't be afraid, it's almost expected.

I attended a workshop in Kathmandu November 2013. Searched for a budget hotel and found Festoon. As a whole the staffs were very helpful especially Gokul. The rooms are basic since its budget. The hotel is location is good since it is a walking distance around Thamel. The most important is to meet Babu and Ramesh who ru the place. Very helpful in getting around Kathmandu. I would definitely stay here again when I am there again.

The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but don't be put off. We had the standard delux room and it was fairly spacious and comfortable. The room was. Little tired but this is to be expected for $28 a night. However, we had our own bathroom, tv and air conditioning, and even though the bed was a little too firm, I was gladly stay here again. The staff are super friendly and helpful and are always ready with aware welcome. Breakfast was included with our room, and when our mountain flight was delayed and we got in well after breakfast was finished, we found the staff was happy to make it for us regardless. The hotel is situated in a great location in Tamil, not right not on the main road, so it wasn't too noisy. Shops were close by and eating locations were within easy walking distance. Overall a great choice for the mid range traveller.

Room Tip: Ask for delux supreme room with bathroom. There are some rooms where you need to share toilet facili...
