“Truly a home away from home”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Even in Nepal, a country justly famed for hospitality and friendliness this property stands out in a class of its own.

From spontaneously offering to pick me up and drop me off at the airport at the end of my stay to picking me up from the CIWEC clinic when I became unwell high in the mountains to recommendations for everything from a local gym to restaurants and the like, the Maharjan family's hospitality was faultless.

The only 'con' to the property is that it is about 20 minutes' taxi to the center of town - but to be honest, staying more than a couple of days in central Kathmandu would drive most everyone crazy; it is just too busy, cramped, and dusty - and a 20-minute taxi ride costs all of US$2-3.

There's just nothing bad to be said about this property.

Room Tip: Especially if you will be staying for a while, ask for one of the top floor flats; then you get a lo...

We stayed at Sagarmatha Apartment for just over a week at the end of November 2013. While our reason for being in Kathmandu was work, Sagarmatha Apartments were a great home away from home and a base from which to do some exploring of the city. We had stayed here about a year and a half previously, and were very happy that a room was available. Guyanman and his wife again treated us like royalty, helping any way they could.

Near by one football game club, may see some maintains from bedroom windows if the weather is not too bad.
Friendly dogs around.
It is really home away from home.

Room Tip: Room away from birds helps good sleep.

Like others recommending Sagarmatha B&B, we had a wonderful time. The group of five of us who stayed there have all traveled extensively worldwide and, by that comprehensive sampling, Sagarmatha B&B ranks in the top ten for like-placed offerings. What makes them exceptional in the environment was the upkeep of the facility, back-up power (rolling blackouts are common so this is big value), friendliness of staff/proprietors, and understanding of foreign nationals as the proprietors themselves have spent time abroad.

Room Tip: Choose away from the indoor soccer practice field. Earplugs, as with almost any hotel, are recommend...

I used these appartments as a base for my recent 3 months stay in Nepal. Having investigated 3 other long-stay options, this was by far the best value for money. My initial impression was that it seemed a little over-priced but then comparing with other places, I realised it was a fairly good deal by Nepalese standards. The hotel manager was an outstanding host with a western mind-set not commonly found amongst a lot of Nepalese I met. He was helpful, kind, warm, friendly, welcoming, acccommodating and just generally super nice. The appartments became a home for me in Pattan away from the chaos of Thamel. The fact that I could have stayed in cheaper accommodation and the fact that I kept coming back was a testament to the " feel good" factor I felt whilst living there. I would definitley recommend it to long stay visitors- not the cheapest option - but certainly the most " homely" and welcoming. Thanks to everyone at Sagarmatha for making this such an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have great views of the surrounding hills and mountains.

I had never stayed in an apartment bed and breakfast, much less one overseas for an extended period of time...this was the perfect place for our family to gather and stay! The apartments provided were much more than you might get from a hotel as far as bed and living room furnishings, kitchen appliances and utensils, and electronics (including wifi, DVD player, cable TV, all the hookups, conversions, and know-how!.

Our "rooms" felt like home away from home very quickly! We always felt safe and our personal items were secure at Sagarmatha. The Sagarmatha owners are on site, knowledgable, friendly and efficient. Our family was really made to feel and special while having both our tourist and daily, non-tourist needs met. The apartments were wIthin easy drive to everything, though walking distance to only a handful in a relatively quiet, residential neighborhood.
