We stayed here twice both when we arrived (2 nights) and prior to leaving (1 night). Both times the room was spacious and clean. The real highlight for us though were the helpful staff, especially Yougaraj Amgain. Yougaraj treated us like family helping us get to a local bus to Pokhara, checking in with us during our trip, and making sure we were off to our next adventure without a hitch. They also held our stuff for 25 days while we went trekking. There are also some nice restaurants within walking distance, and ATMs close by. Overall great experience, we highly recommend this hotel. Thanks again to our friend Yougaraj.

2 times during my stayed at this hotel was great the staff genuinely friendly, gentle and really looked after their guests. Location wise FH is well placed away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the main road but close enough should you wish to get involved. I would stay at Family Home again if I ever come back to Nepal, it was a great experience and a lovely place with beautiful rooftop breakfast place. Special thank you to Babu at Family Home for making my stay a truely special one!

I recently stayed at the hotel family home as part of a trek. Upon returning from the trek my original stay of two nights turned into a week. Everything about the hotel is quality for a very reasonable price. From the friendly staff who are more than accommodating to the excellent breakfast served on the roof the the clean rooms with hot showers and WiFi that works without fault; everything is quality. I would highly recommend.

Hotel Family Home is located in the heart of Thamel, set amongst shops, resturants, and a close walk to historical landmarks, it is right where you want to be. The rooms are huge and clean, perfect for a good nights rest before your big hike or a great place to chill after an epic adventure. The rooftop is stunning, a great place to watch the sun come up over Kathmandu or to sip a beer and watch the sunset over the city.

However, what makes Hotel Family Home so special is the staff... they are beyond exceptional. Everytime I've stayed they have done anything and everything to accomadate my every need, from transportation to organizing treks they can do everything. Hotel Family Home treat you as if you were family... you can't ask for anything more!

This is a very cosy hotel, we really like the nice and comfy clean bed, 24hrs hot shower with good wifi coverage in the room is definitely a huge plus here in Kathmandu. Also all their rooms are very spacious and with attached bathroom, there is also a cuboard in the room if you like to leave your bags/personal beloggings hidden.

Family home is located in a quiet alley in the centre of Thamel, this mean you get some peace from the ever busy traffic and dust in Thamel main street but of course you can't expect total silent since this is Thamel.

I also find the hotel open air roof top garden restaurant is great, it makes a perfect spot to sit and catch some nice breeze in an outdoor space.

My friend also discover a nice clean and cheap spa right next to the hotel reception, go and have a look if you are a spa person, or if you needed a recovery massage from trekking.

Thank you Family home for upkeeping the hotel so well that make our stay here enjoyable, we will defintely choose to stay here again when we return to Kathmandu next time.
