We stayed three nights in this hotel and were satisfied. Nothing special, but with this price a comfortable stay overall. The location is just perfect. If you're looking for a fancy place this is not for you, but if you want to cheap but nice place go for this. And check out the rooftop movie theater next door!

This is a loud area. Bring ear plugs! But all hotels in Thamel are loud. It can be quite a hike up all the stairs to your room. Some of the rooms are very spacious. I had a double room that was huge. The toilet dripped loudly but I could not hear it at night as I wore ear plus...

The first thing I noticed when I got here was that it was really clean and neat. Even the rooms. The staff here is super friendly and always making you feel welcome. It is located near Thamel street which just takes just 3 to 5 minutes and very quiet at night. The price of the room is more than resonable...

The hotel staff is friendly and helpful thus had a comfortable stay. It was worth paying since they treat me like a family than the customers. The hotel also arrange the trip to different place on the request of guest.

We stayed for a couple of nights before flying out of Nepal. Festoon is in a good central location in thamel, but also quiet which is a bonus. Rooms are basic but clean. We had a shared bathroom, again this was clean and had hot water so that's always good. Breakfast was ok, but could do with improvement (potatoes should...

I really liked this hotel. The owner, Babu is a very friendly and trustworthy man. The hotel is a good combination of comfortable stay + welcoming staff + tasty breakfast. The best thing was I got my breakfast packed by the hotel staff when I had to leave early in the morning next day. Real nice gesture.

Friendly and very helpful staff. The rooms are clean and have all the comfort you need. The breakfast on the roof terrace is the perfect start of your day. Situated in the heart of Thamel. They arranged pick up at the airport as well as arranged transportation to the airport.
