Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We stayed here at the end of a 3 week tour of India and Nepal, booked after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor. The hotel definitely lived up to expectations.

Situated in Thamel, down quiet sidestreets, the hotel is very modern and the atmosphere very relaxed. The staff were friendly and very professional, they arranged our taxi to the airport for the next morning without any fuss and spoke decent English. There is free coffee, tea and wifi available in the lobby and free bottles of water provided in the rooms.

Rooms were comfy and adequately furnished, but could have done with a lick of paint. Had a great night sleep though. No lift so quite a few stairs, can be a struggle with heavy luggage though there were porters available. Rooftop terrace offered great views but bar was closed.

IF you are staying in Kathmandu and Thamel especially I would highly recommend. We stayed in May 2014 and the room worked out to be around £28 for the night.

Searched for a less expensive hotel in Thamel for business & vacation purposes and found HFH. Truly a nice central spot, clean with own bathroom, my room was on the 5th floor, close to the roof top. All guys have been extremely friendly and I can truly recommend this hotel to everybody - no matter if backpacker or business guest searching for a central located alternative.

Room Tip: don´t try 501, it´s mine when I return... ;-)

Hotel Friends Home truly lives up to its name with warm, helpful, and reliable service. Fantastic location. Impeccably clean and safe. One of us was ill (from previous travels) and when we told the manager he provided medicine on the spot and suggested that we order anything from the hotel restaurant that would suit us, even if it was not on the menu. Great sightseeing advice and arrangements at extremely reasonable prices. Outstanding value for money.

I would like to thank the staff at Hotel Friends Home for the wonderful hospitality and professional service myself and my two friends experienced there last weekend in Nepal. Their friendly attitude was out of this world. They gave fantastic advise on what to do and where to go and arranged everything for us leaving our trip absolutely stress free.

The rooms were clean and well seerviced.

Location is excellent.

Would highly recommend staying here.

The approach road to this hotel isn't that nice but once you are in the hotel, you forget that. The rooms are nice and clean, service is good, staff is friendly. It really feels like a friend's home. Definitely will stay at this hotel again when I visit Kathmandu in future. Will recommend to families as well as the service and staff is family friendly.
