This hotel is prety nice. You must make a critic of it from the main door to inside. Location is nice and near dowtown. Rooms are ok, comfortable bed and pillows. Rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is a transportation service from the airport to hotel, you dont need to take a cab or taxi, just walk away international arrivals and search for the hotel sign. Staff nice and very very friendly. Kathmandu is Kathmandu if you look outside, but I spent a nice stancy in this hotel. I highly recomend it for vacations pr spent a night.

My friend and I are from Singapore. We stayed at Hotel Friends Home from 19 - 23 December 2013.

The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are all very warm, friendly and helpful. They certainly made our stay safe and comfortable.

The rooms are clean and well-maintained. There is a heater, television, comfortable beds and hot shower. The free WIFI in the room is a big plus. The breakfast is very good.

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is located right in the heart of Thamel with many restaurants and shops nearby. You are able to explore much of the city easily by foot.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would like to personally commend the owner and his team for running such an excellent hotel. We strongly recommend this hotel.

Just spent 6 nights at this wonderfully located hotel. Staff are great and organised. They arranged a tour for us to Bandipur, Pokhara and Chitwan National Park as well as a short trek to Chisapani and Nargakot. Driver, guide and porter were all outstanding. After no electricity, hot water and cold showers elsewhere, returning to this hotel was pure heaven. We will definitely return and would recommend this hotel for quality service and location.

We liked everything about the hotel, especially the people. The place was on a relatively quiet street. We booked online before our trip, and the cost of the room was $60. We decided that on the way back from Pokhara, we should stay at another place. We walked into a hotel around the corner and booked a room that was comparable for half the price! Both hotels have hot water, clean, and great breakfast.

When I booked Hotel's Friend Home through agoda.com, I made a mistake by booking a single room for my friend and I. Upon realizing my mistake, hotel staff were helpful and understanding. We paid a nominal sum to top-up the differences. Each day we are greeted by the friendly staff and they are always ready to assist our requests. Hotel rooms are new and clean, hot water available for 24/7; Hotel is tucked away in a quiet corner, you don't get the hustle and bustle like you do on the main street. I will strongly recommend anyone who is coming to Kathmandu to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room at a lower floor if you will like to avoid climbing up stairs.

Have had three bookings at this hotel in three different rooms. On arriving the first time at nearly midnight I was pleasantly surprised at how helpful the staff were in getting us settled for the night. The room for the price range was spacious, very clean and had hot water. The following morning we met some more of the staff and all were great even remembering how we like our coffee which is free all day. (Not bad coffee either)
We wanted to arrange some trips and a trek and this hotel has a great travel desk, same owner I think, which made organizing everything easy. Unfortunately our plans came unstuck due to weather as the flights we had booked were cancelled. This was no problem to the hotel they rearranged our schedule and gave us a full refund for the part of travel we couldn't use. We did a short trek before returning to the hotel and the guide and porter they used were first class as were the drivers they use.
The menu in the restaurant is adequate but there was no problem ordering ordering something else which we have done a few times. The food was always well prepared and enjoyable.
Having just completed five weeks of travel in India and Nepal staying in 16 different hotels I can honestly say this has been the best value for money and would confidently recommend the hotel to others

i had had excellent stay at friends' home.. the rooms were clean, the staff very good and helpful...as per the room rates, it is the best place to stay in thamel. The USP of the hotel is its clean and hygenic room and lovely helpful staffs. we had left behind our baggage in hurry while checking out and Mr Promod had personally come to the airport to handover the same.. I would like to thank him for his gesture....
