Potala Tourist Home

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 19, 2013

After a very good experience during my first stay at Potala Tourist Home I decided to stay there again after coming back from Pokhara. When I arrived I was welcomed so warmly that it felt like coming home to family.
The location of this hotel is excellent, just a few minutes to Thamel with its shops and restaurants, and in walking distance to the bus station for buses to Pokhara or Chitwan. If you look for some peace and quiet in the middle of KTM try the Garden of Dreams which is located 2 minutes from Potala Tourist Home.
I loved sitting at the terrace where you can have breakfast and enjoy the sunshine.
This hotel provides (really) hot water 24 hours and if you're in need of charging your phone or laptop during the power cuts reception will be happy to help you out. They also provide free and fast Wifi. Thank you to everyone at Potala Tourist Home for their great hospitality and helpfulness!

Unlike other hotels, this place is easier to find for it is quite near the main junction of the busy street, Thamel. I along with some of my friends from Bangladesh stayed there for four days. Well, I rate this tourist home 4 out of five for I felt at home. People are very kind and friendly towards us. For it was a cold season in Kathmandu at that time, the staffs even managed hot shower and more blankets for us. The atmosphere is quieter than the other places that we visited as it is situated inside the private lane. The building is well managed and they also serve good food.

Room Tip: Staffs are kind and helpful
