My friends and I recently stayed at the Vardan apartments in Pokhara. We had 3 couples in our group and decided to rent out the 3 bedroom apartment. Though it was a bit pricier than the other options in town, we quickly learned that you get what you pay for in Nepal. From the moment we arrived at the airport and were met by the incredibly helpful and kind manager Nabin, we were taken care of and catered to by the staff at the Vardan. The apartment itself is quite luxurious and the common areas are comfortable and nicely furnished. You really feel like you're at home when staying at the apartment, especially having your own space to relax in. My only complaint would be that the staff is almost too accommodating, if that's possible. There were a few times when we wanted to come back to our apartment and rest but our rooms were being cleaned--spotlessly cleaned. In addition, the owner did try and book us on multiple tours in the first 1/2 hour that we were there which was a bit overwhelming--we definitely felt pressured to make plans right away. That said, we did take one tour he recommended--an early-morning hike that involved breakfast overlooking the Annapurnas, a 3 hour hike in the foothills, and a paragliding trip back to town. The guide they arranged was outstanding and we felt that the price we each paid for a full day's worth of adventuring was well worth it.
All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Pokhara that isn't worried about staying at the cheapest place in town. The apartments are gorgeous, the location is on a quiet side-street that's easy walking to the main drag and the lake, and the staff, especially the manager Nabin, are amazing and go well out of their way to make you feel like you are a part of the family. Do yourself a favor and stay here if you come to Pokhara!
