Potala Tourist Home

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

I really enjoyed my stay in Potala Tourist Home. The employees were very nice and helpful. The free wifi worked great even in the room. The single room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It is very close to Thamel, yet away from the hustle and bustle of it.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled solo

Very friendly young guys running this place, well located on the edge of thamel
My single room was cheap but with all the needed facilities, especially the hot water shower was very much appreciated, gas-heated, so the many power cuts don't affect it...the wifi was always on too, not too fast but usable...the small tv had international channels like cnn and bbc and hbo, but of course useless when there was no power...both the room and the bathroom have an emergency light though, connected to a battery somewhere
All in all a value for money place, recommended!

Room Tip: My room was a corner room with windows in two directions, very bright and lots of fresh air, all win...

Ramesh Thapa takes INCREDIBLE care of his guests, as do all the staff members of Potala Tourist Home. They gave incredible service and for a very low price. The internet was reliable, the power stayed on 24/7 (a luxury in Kathmandu), and the bed was firm and fantastic. The location was great, close to shopping, food and banks/ATMs. They come highly recommended by THIS GUY, especially for the price.

Don´t expect a 5-star-hotel, but for the room price I can highly recomment this Hotel in the heart of the Tourist area Thamel in Kathmandu. The rooms are clean and the People at the reception and in the Restaurant are super friendly and help you whenever you habe a Problem or a Special request. The breakfast can be taken on the terrace and ist the cheapest and best I have found since I am in Nepal. First, I have booked only 2 days, then I decidet ti stay 10 days. Very Close to the Garden of Dreams, a nice and quiet garden where you can relax on mats on the grass....

We stayed at this hotel at the edge of Thamel for five nights.The reception staff is extremely friendly and helpful, offering their help and services every time we saw them. We were given a free upgrade to a huge family room during our first night, as no room with a double bed was available. Rooms and linnens are clean, and we saw the halls being scrubbed every day during our stay. In can be a bit noisy during the nighttime, but this seems to be a given regardless of where you stay in the Thamel area.

I had a great time with no complaints at all. I came for trekking to Nepal so stayed 3 days first then went for trekking and came back and stayed 2 more days. Got picked up at airport , well you need to pay for that but I would say its better to pay than to get lost in your first visit to Kathmandu. Got my trekking managed with the help of the staff there in the hotel, it was well managed and everything went well. Rooms are satisfying, comfortable. Restaurant served good food and the location was perfect as it was right at the area called Thamel, a very popular tourist place in Kathmandu but not really noisy at all. I had a great holiday and would surely recommend this hotel to the travelers.

Room Tip: I stayed in the second building of the hotel opposite to main building, it has a terrace and I loved...
