I usually used to stay other place too but due to room unavailability I decided to stay at hotel friends home which was colated in the main hub of tourist market. My room was clean and comfortable, staff were helpful,shower work perfectly and staff were always ready to deliver service. Meals were delicious and resonable in cost. It is a hotel with true hospitality.

Stayed for one night after our trip to EBC. The room was a pleasant surprise with clean restroom, good wifi, and comfy aircon. Manager was helpful to guide us to different places n making sure we are comfortable thru out our stay. Overall a happy customer. I'd come back again n recommend my friends.

All staff were very helpful. Rooms were perfect and location was central in the tourist area. We was even allowed to use the shower services even after we had already checked out. Free tea and coffee were also a big plus and the free wifi worked throughout the whole building.Thanks!

I booked a room for my parents for three nights as a father's day gift. My parents were delighted to stay there and Mr. Pramod took personal care of them. I am extremely happy with their hospitality and their responsiveness when I was trying to contact them from London. I am sure I will stay there whenever I visit Kathmandu next!

The staff is incredibly helpful. The only snafu we ran into was when they were performing a money exchange on our behalf. They checked on the rate and told me what it was. I gave them the cash. 15 minutes later they came back with my Nepalese rupees, but they did the transfer at a much lower rate - the rate that was on the street. I'm used to hotels giving a slightly better rate than the money exchange places, but this wasn't a big deal...I just wish they would have said the correct value up front.

They opened breakfast up for us 15 minutes early so that we could eat before having to catch the bus to Chitwan during the morning we checked out. This was much appreciated!

We only stayed one night, but the power didn't get shut off on us. The other hotel we stayed at in Kathmandu shut power off during the day, which was inconvenient. Hotel Friends Home didn't have any power glitches while we were there either...also not what we experienced at the other hotel we stayed at.

Bed was very comfortable, especially for the hotel rate (~$50).

Arrived in Katmandu and spent $8 on a taxi to find this place down one of the side streets. Clean, comfortable, nice rooftop terrace, good breakfast, and in the center of Thamel. Internet access was good - random power cuts, but they had it covered with a generator. People thought I was crazy paying as much as I did as you can find places for $4, but it was worth it to have a nice, safe place to sleep.

Room Tip: Pick one on the 4th floor so you don't have the street noise.

This is the first time I've written a TripAdvisor review and I did it because I believe this hotel deserves it. During our stay in Kathmandu, my cousin and I had a lot of issues with our travel. We weren't able to get out to Lukla and ended up having to come back to the hotel unexpectedly one night. They took us in and were very understanding. The hotel also let us keep some of our belongings in the back room for the two weeks that we were gone trekking Annapurna. The staff were extremely accommodating and helpful and provided great recommendations when we needed them. The location was convenient, breakfast was included every morning and there was AC in the room. Highly recommend! Thanks again to the staff for all their help.
