We chose this hotel because it's near the Green Line bus station.
We found one of the cleaniest hotels we slept in.
There's no air conditioning and the beds are quite hard, but it's not much of an incovenience.
The good price and the friendly staff make this a good chioce.

I stayed in Potala Tourist Home for 2 weeks and it was really a comfortable stay. The staffs were so helpful, they helped me find cab even at the 5am, and even picked me up from the airport at the middle of the night. Peaceful environment. I am very thankful to staffs. especially Mr.Sabin.

It was nice to be met and greeted at the Airport by the lovely Ramesh from the Potala Tourist Home as the pace of Kathmandu can be overwhelming when you first arrive. I stayed at this hotel 3 times, on my arrival, after my EBC Trek and after returning from Pokhara. The staff were super friendly and helpful and I always felt very safe and secure there. I was able to leave luggage I didn't need which was helpful. Rooms are basic but just freshly painted and great value for money. Location is perfect and close to everything. Restaurant food was good quality, chicken burger was a favorite! Thanks for a great stay, I really felt at home :)

Room Tip: 208, gas shower, quieter room

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!
