Shree Tibet Family Guest House
Ranked #44 of 207 Hotels in Kathmandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2014

In total, I spent almost two weeks in Shree Tibet Family Guest House back in April and May 2013. I'd always return there whenever I came back from a long trekking trip. The reason for that is that, after looking around, in person, through several places to stay in Thamel, this guest house had, by far, the best value for money. It's extremely affordable, the rooms are really nice and so are the toilets and showers. There's hot water 24 hours a day, the showerhead actually has a decent water pressure, there's free wifi inside the room and everything's clean.
The staff is really nice and helpful, from the manager, to the people at the front desk, to the cleaning ladies and even the guy from the trekking shop right next door was pretty cool.

It's quiet and cozy, though, being in Thamel, it was near a disco, which, of course, was a bit noisy sometimes, but it was nothing that a pair of cheap ear plugs couldn't solve, so no big deal there. Besides, being right there in Thamel means that its location is extremely convenient.

The staff never tried to pressure me into signing up for tours or anything else, as they knew (I told them) that I'm a solo independent traveler who likes to do his own thing and not spending too much money. In fact, they would gladly give me some advice on several things, so that I could know how to do stuff as cheap as possible.
I left my luggage stored there on two different occasions, more than one month in total, and it was pretty secure.

It's been almost a year since I was there and I'm planning to go back to Nepal once again around April this year and it was then that I remembered that I'd not written a review for this guest house, which is a shame, because it really helped making my stay in Kathmandu and Nepal so memorable. Well, here I am writing a review now. Better late than never, I suppose.

I'll definitely be staying there once again when I visit Nepal come Spring. Really looking forward to it!

I stayed here for one night and it was a pleasant stay. The staff are very friendly where always willing to help if i needed anything. I booked a taxi for a kathmandu tour for a full day and the price was 4700. We visited the main tourist attractions five attractions and they also dropped me off at the airport at the end as part of the tour package.

I have not looked into other tour agencies so i dont know if it is with all drivers but the hotel driver was a bit too social and took time to stop on the way and talk to his friends and sister while i stood there waiting which wasnt a big problem since i wasnt on a tight schedule but its something to keep in mind. Also make sure you decide where and when you will meet after you tour an attraction site. At one of the sites, i had to wait 20 minutes for the driver to come back.

The rooms are clean and they do not smell stuffy like some of the other hotels. The bathroom was also clean but the shower water pressure was extremely week. Hot water however, was not a problem which was very nice.

Overall it was a pleasant stay except for a few mishaps which were not a big problem at all.

Room Tip: Check the shower water pressure and ask for another room if it is bad.

The employees are very nice and they have good rooms in Nepal standards. Their system for storing baggage is very secure which is great if you're leaving things when you're off trekking the Himalayas.

I have no idea and no expectation, when I booked this hotel online. I just go with my "instinct and flow"!!! I love surprised and adventures!!! Surprisingly, it was amazing things, I had done and I was "BLESSED and SO HAPPY" living here. The staffs are very very polite, well behaved, friendly and helpful!!! I loves "Ganesh and Kumar" they both are soooo adorable and good employees/staffs at Shree Tibet Familly Guest House and of course other staffs is good too, but I didn't get all their names!!! Price is very very reasonable, good locations, conveniences and very safe... I strongly recommended to anyone who like me, who love surprise and adventures to come and experience it yourself... Very interesting people and staffs in SHREE TIBET FAMILY GUEST HOUSE!!! I'm 101% satisfy and it's was a perfect choice and feel like living in the family house!!!

まず安さが魅力です。合計6泊しましたが、とても居心地が良かったです。ホットシャワーは時間帯によっては、冷たくなるのですが午前中に使うとベストです。Wi-Fiは無料で、停電時でも使用できました。またオーナーは日本語もできすので、困ったときは相談できます。私はポカラ往復のフライトとポカラのホテルもここで予約しました。スタッフが親切でフレンドリーなのも魅力です。

First, this is reasonable gest house. I stayed here for 6 days, I felt it was very comfortable. You can use hot shower 24 hours ,but it goes pretty cold . So you should use it in the morning. You can use Free Wi-Fi when the power outage.
Since the owner speaks Japanese, you can talk with him about some problem. I bought flight ticket to Pokhara and reserved accommodation here.
