This is an average Kathmandu hotel in terms of room standard & cleanliness, but if you're wanting to escape a little from the Thamel frenzy, then it's a good option as it's set a little bit outside the chaos. It's just a 5 minute walk to get back into the centre of things, but the distance helps for a more...

Three times I have come to Katmandu and three times we have made this our home. From the moment the taxi drops you off in the gate, you notice the hand carved posts and window frames. The staff is kind and genuine not smug or patronizing. The rooms are simple but very clean. The view from 601 on the rooftop...

This guest house is tucked away in a corner of the Thamel district and it was the perfect launching point for our month of trekking in Nepal. They are incredibly helpful, even when booking room online. They even picked us up right from the airport. It's a very clean hotel with lots of interesting nooks and cranies to explore. The...

We stayed in this hotel for about a month in June and July 2013. We really enjoyed our time at the hotel because the rooms were very clean, the staff was friendly and reliable, and the breakfast was great! The hotel does an excellent job arranging local activities, including treks and day excursions. We would highly recommend staying at the...

We arrived at the Guest House after an Airport pickup and a drive through the noisy streets of Kathmandu to arrive at this quiet haven. It is a few minutes walk to the centre of Thamal but so far away in terms of hustle and bustle. Turning into the arrival courtyard we were delighted to see a larger than life...

Very well kept place and efficient staff. The property itself is a break from the usual crowded Thamel area. The only problem is with the breakfast which kind of takes ages to arrive, but if you have time, it is a pleasant wait!

We have visited Kathmandu numerous times over the past 15 years always in Thamel. It's a travelers ghetto and the crowds of tourists, touts and hawkers can be overwhelming and when combined with the vehicle noise and polution unbearable. The International Guest House is set on a quiet street close, but away from the noise and crush of people. The...

The International Guest House was a dream for me. I met the most wonderful locals and revelers while staying here 2 different times.... and I will be staying there again. Wonderful stay, quiet, clean, great breakfast, peaceful and it has an amazing roof view to read and share a few drinks with friends on. It is a must stay.

Close to the major streets of Thamel, but just retreated enough to avoid the crowd of tourists, this hotel offers the peace and comfort one needs, at a pretty reasonable price. The hotel manager also offers different services and gives good information according to your budget, going from buses to private drivers. All in all, I really recommend this place...
