This hotel is overall a great budget option in the Thamel district of Kathmandu. My husband and I stayed on 2 separate occasions and had the same room both times, but we are aware that we had one of the bigger rooms (402). I believe that all of the -02 rooms are larger with ensuite bath. Other rooms are smaller and some share a common toilet. Our room had a separate sitting area and was a corner room with a view of the garden restaurant on one side. It was not too cold in April, so closing the windows at night kept the chill out. We did have a nice warm blanket on our bed. Breakfast was fantastic and the lovely garden restaurant is like a little oasis in Kathmandu!

The family who own this hotel were very helpful and kind. They went out of their way to make us breakfast on our early departure and allowed us a late check out for a small fee. They were always ready with lively conversation as well!

The power was a bit annoying, but the hotel owns a generator which runs a few lights in your room when the power is out. My only wish would be that they could find a way to keep the Wifi working throughout the day as by the time 9am rolled around the power was usually cut along with the WiFi.

Overall, I'd recommend!

I read some reviews and decided to stay at this nightmare place but it was the worst experience I have ever had in all my journeys across Asia.

First the hotel staff did not want to change us any money (nepali rupees) to pay the taxi driver as we had only large nominals and they insisted we pay the taxi driver more than agreed with the driver.

Secondly the rooms are a disaster - dirty, loud, and dark.
There is no hot water and backup light in the room in case of often power cuts.

Thirdly the hotel is located in a noisy neighborhood.

The last point: it was very cold in the hotel (did not experience this in the other hotel we moved to)

On the plus side the breakfast was tasty, but If you decide for he option room + breakfast, you would be better off ordering the food separately.

The garden is nice, and the place is conveniently located but overall experience was very bad. We moved to a hotel just 200m away and it was so much better!

First and foremost, we are a budget hotel run by a family.We do not have a separate counter for exchange of money but we do provide Nepalese equivalents upon availability and request of our guests.The case mentioned is very exceptional.

Regarding power back ups, the hotel provides electricity through generator until 11 o'clock at night. It is however,not used during the day due to clear visibility.

As mentioned earlier, we are a budget hotel.We do not provide 24 hours running hot water service.

As for coldness at night, we provide quilts upon requests of our guests.So,coldness is manageable at Hotel Florid.

Our sincere apologies for the inconveniences.

Nepal was a big culture shock for my father and I but we ended up not wanting to leave. Hotel Florid has basic rooms with shower and toilet attached. It boasts cyber cafe and currency exchange which actually isn't true. The exchange bureau is down the street and there's an internet cafe opposite that doesn't serve food or drinks. What hotel florid does have is a beautiful garden, great food and drinks all very cheap, fantastic staff and WiFi which I could access from my room. The owner is very friendly and helpful and helped us to organise a flight over Everest through a local tour operator and a hiking trip which we truly enjoyed. A few other downfalls where the airport pickup, we were mobbed when we arrived at Kathmandu by taxi drivers but we dismissed them and stood round waiting for our pickup which didn't arrive. We ended up taking a taxi after a long wait. Lastly, I found myself locked out of the hotel on a few occasions, as they lock up really quite early. Although I was only over the road using the computer, I found myself having to bang on the shutters and waking up the staff to let me in at 11pm. Overall we did feel very at home there and well looked after even though we were only there for 5 days. All said, I'd definitely stay there again and recommend it. The people are just lovely, so hard working and happy. Sad to have left Nepal, what a place it is.

First things first, this is not a luxury hotel. But for a budget hotel, I think this is one of the better ones I stayed at during my time in Nepal. I've stayed at other guest houses/hotels and paid more, for less quality than Hotel Florid.

Overall the rooms were very clean and well maintained (I could sleep without having to use my sleeping bag) and the owner and staff are very friendly and attentive.

Power outages are common (as it is for the rest of Nepal) and I think this affects the availability of hot water and WI-FI when the power is out which can be frustrating at times.

Its located in the middle of Thamel and a close walk to all the main cafes, shops and restaurants.

One of the things I liked the most was the affordability of their meals. The american breakfast and fried rice is really good and portions are generous - for almost half the price of the tourist restaurants in Thamel. well worth it.

Will definitely stay there again if I come back to Nepal.

Travellers beware: Kathmandu is cold at night and not every hotel has 24-hour hot water. This hotel is one of them. First the owner's wife came to our room who simply said no hot water. Then a young male staff came and said no power (but we still have lights). We asked him to find hot water for us. We desperately needed a shower after our excursion. We waited for nearly an hour. Finally we found the owner who said it's a budget hotel and they cannot guarantee hot water, blah blah blah. So we went to Cosmic Hotel right next door. The kind owner opened the store room for us and brought us 3 buckets of hot water with towels - for free! Recommend you to go to Cosmic which is cheaper with helpful staff.
