Hotel Potala is a leading hotel in the heart of the Thamel neighborhood of Kathmandu.Run by a Nepali and Tibetan family, it is a perfect place for those who value time, convenience, and a safe place to stay. We've been in the hotel business since 1991 and know how to make our visitors feel like they are in our house rather than our hotel. We are close to many attractions in the city and provide a wide range of guest services and amenities. Our 27 rooms provide many lodging options, all with 24 hour a day hot water.

Spacious for two but that bathroom... The bathroom is not really a separate room. It had a glass sliding door that didn't go to the top of the ceiling. Pretty much no privacy. But the worst part was the shower covered the toilet and sink when on. You have to shield your dry
