“cant praise it enuf.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2006

Having just returned from Kathmandu this week and after a very enjoyable stay in the Internationl Guest House
i have nothing but praise for the staff and the comfort and luxury of a very well run establishment. Bedrooms are spotless, comfortable with daily cleaning..corridors are very pleasing on the eye and the enclosed garden is a delight. Rates are very reasonable with breakfast included and a free security box. Would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to any would-be tourist.

I recently stayed at this guest house with some friends prior to going trekking and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the accomodation and public areas given the very reasonable cost of the rooms.

We stayed in a double room that had amble space and a large clean bathroom. The room was serviced each day and although the beds were hard I was able to get a good nights sleep.

The lobby and garden area are very nicely laid out and the whole guest house is contained within a walled area which is 'guarded' by friendly uniformed men who warmly greet you whenever you go past.

Overall this guest house is excellent value for money and a comfortable place to stay but a few issues that are worth considering:

We only ate breakfast at the hotel and its fairly basic and I found the resturant staff rather surly at times.

Watch out for the hotek double booking - the management twice tried to move us to different rooms as they said they had more bookings than rooms.

Kathmandu is a very noisy place and you're not going to escape that, especially being so central to Thamel as this place is. However, each of the four nights I stayed here I was woken up at 5.30 by the sound of a bus starting up in the parking compound in front of the hotel so if you're a light sleeper then make sure you bring your ear plugs!

We have just returned from a week at the International Guest House in nepal. The Guest house is magnificent and we have never experienced such homely freindly service in such a wonderfull building. It was so built on been a friendly guest house that is family run they do so much for guests its like been at home.

The owners always stop for a chat and are only to pleased to explain or help guests in any other travel or information about nepal it was a pleasure to spent time there.


I paid $17 per night for a Fantastic room with breakfast,

This is a fine find in nepal in which i will be returning to experence the Guest house and been one of the many travelers that have found this example in a busy city of excelence and tradition in kathmandu.

Overall I would say this is probably the best budget Guest House I have ever stayed at In Nepal and beats many others in the same location.

You are made to feel special and respected no matter who you are, you are treated special. I for one am pleased I spent time here and will def return again.
