I was living in this hotel during about 2 months!.. Its quite long and all that time i felt safely. It is new hotel with new(!) rooms - comfortable bed, bath room and free wi-fi! Huge respect and thanks to all the guys working there, which are ready to help any time. Thank you Festoon and see you soon!

I had good experience in Festoon Hotel in total 10 days before and after the visits in some major cities. I am extremely happy the choice I made. The Hotel is located in a quite, beautiful, tourist as well as residential area of Thamel, kathmandu, within a pleasant walking area. There are lots of cafe and restaurant around the hotel.

The public areas and rooms at the hotel are extremely clean with all the amenities of a hotel standard. The rooms are large and very modern. The front desk staff are very friendly and went out of their way helping us with the direction and useful tips for the place I was going to see everyday.They are all fluent in English, and they gave me a map way better then the one at the Information Center, don’t even bother to go there. I took the breakfast at the hotel,for me breakfast is the main meal of the day, and I spend over an hour every morning there. I liked the variety of hot and cold choices, fruits and vegetables, and especially the coffee.

I love it, and plan to come back next year for a few more days, and I will not consider staying at any other hotel, but Festoon Hotel.

Hotel Festoon lives up to its name of luxury and affordability. New rooms, new interiors: beds, carpets, lighting, TV, AC, Toilet and Bath plus free Internet connection and breakfast area at the roof top at a whooping miniscule rates.

The big plus (+) for this hotel is its professional and friendly staff. They practically listen to their customers genuinely and address every concern and request. Babu, one of the young owners is a drop dead gorgeous center edifice of the hotel -- very accommodating and is always mindful of every client, be it walk-in or online guests. This hotel is a promising haven for those trekkers, mountaineers, typical tourists, businessmen and regular Kathmandu visitors.

Center of Thamel means access to every restaurant, souvenir shops, bars, outfitters, bookshops, etc. Before checking out your regular hotel, it is really worth visiting this new hotel in Thamel.

I was forced to discover Festoon Hotel when Shree Tibet Guest House was full and couldn't accommodate me. I did check around for others on my own beforehand, but all were either too expensive, over booked or just sad and lonely. So, I let Shree Tibet staff kindly bring me to the brand new and very close Festoon. Same price range, maybe not as brightly appointed single room as on the top floor at Shree Tibet, BUT, better showers, brand new bathrooms, relaxed open environment, great location. The young owner Babu Thapa is lovely, kind and sincere and is really a kind heart. Rather than choosing one of the over rated guest houses from the guide books that are by now slightly jaded and snarky with foreigners (with the exception of Shree Tibet, who have really sweet staff and environment), I highly recommend Festoon Hotel. Excellent affordable small. Singles with private bath and hot shower at about $12 USD. Double with common bath $12. doubles at round $22. And i think they have A/C rooms closer to $30. www.hotelfestoon.com

Room Tip: I switched from the 1st floor higher up as it suddenly got quite cold and the 1st floor was drafty...
