“Best option in Thamel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Deutsch Home is a guesthouse located in the heart of Thamel.

You should not expect luxury but all the rooms are nice and tidy. Prices are very reasonable. In the same build can find a spa and a roof terrace, where you can enjoy a beer in the sun.

What is really the best aspect of Deutsch Home is the staff, all very friendly and sincerely wanting to help you. Chiran Pokhrel (the owner) has a travel office and can organise basically everything you want for you. If you are in need of anything or in search of something to do in Kathmandu, just ask the staff and they will be most happy to help. Most of them are young lads speaking English very well.

Most of the money earned by the guesthouse goes straight into VAD Nepal - a charity focusing on integrating people with disabilities.

If you need a clean, friendly and reasonably priced place to stay in the heart of Thamel, then this is the right one. Shops, restaurants, bars and clubs are close at hand. The staff is smiling and very helpful. The owner, Chiran, can help you in organising your onward trip and all kind of adventure activities for an unbeatable price and it's a quality service. Though it gets very noisy at night, so if you look for a quiet place to stay then try another location, Thamel in general is very noisy. Otherwise ask for a room at the back of the hotel, it's quieter there. Most rooms have hot water, they are simple but warm and clean. In general, Deutsch Home it's a very good adress for budget travellers, worth recommendation for general atmosphere, warm welcome and because you get much more than you pay for :)

Room Tip: Roms at the back of the hotel are much more quieter

The positives - Deutsch Home is a cheap hotel that s very central in Thamel. You are a stones throw from all restaurants and everything you'll need. The larger rooms are ok, come with a bathroom where the toilet doesn't flood (as we've had in other hotels) and didn't have any cockroaches. For £4.50 a night we couldn't expect much more.

The negatives - the location means you have very loud music until midnight every night. The walls are paper thin, so there's no escaping a mash of 3 bars playing music. The rooms are a bit run down and the bathrooms are wet rooms, so the toilet and everything will get covered. We rarely found there to be hot water and quite often the lobby and stairs smelt of urine. It needs a bit of tlc and could with new paint!

Overall, if you want a good location to sleep over night and nothing more, this is the best option you'll get for £4.50. If you have a bigger budget, look elsewhere because this won't be the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Choose one which starts with a 1. These tend to be quieter and have curtains for all windows.

Friendly staff, a good price and a central location. The location makes it very noisy and there was a lot more cockroaches than I've seen in any other guest house! The wi-fi works fine on the lower floors but seems to struggle on the uppers. If you want to stay cheap and central and don't mind noise and little friends in bed with you then this is the place for you

Room Tip: Maybe a room at the back is quieter?

I've stayed few times in this hotel. The reception guy is very helpfull and friendly. Rooms are simple and in some you might find some cockroaches... (just buy a spay in the supermarket around the corner, and they're gone)
Deutsch home is very centrally located. When you pick your room keep in mind that some bars will play their loud music till midnight.

Room without AC and with attached bathroom for 400 NPR. (103) & with shared bathroom for 300 NPR (107).

This non lonely planet hotel is a budget option in the heart of Thamel (in front of The Kathmandu Guest House). We stayed two times there. The first one, was a good experience because we slept comfortably and the hotel is well located (room 107). However, the second one, after visiting the Kathmandu valley, was horrible. The young manager of the GH, offered us a better room (room 103). It seemed to be OK, although, at night there was a cockroach party coming from the bath (will killed over 20). It was late at night and they didn't have free rooms to allocate us, so we had to "sleep" there. Next day, they changed our room (room 107, without bath) and the manager sprayed insecticide in the baths. The following night was correct, however the third some cockroaches appeared again.

Note: The cockroach problem happened in thee days without rain, after a week of heavy rains. We saw cockroaches in a lot of shops, restaurants, etc. So, it was a Thamel problem.
