Kathmandu Peace GuestHouse is located in a quiet position within a busy part of Kathmandu. It is on the edge of Thamel in easy reach of tourist shops and tourist and local bus parks.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful - they are keen to ensure that everything possible is done to make your stay trouble free and enjoyable.
By Nepalese standards this guesthouse is a haven where rooms are adequate - hot showers and electricity supplied by solar power or generator when main electricity for the area is turned off. This is a great bonus as there are daily cuts to the power in Nepal that can last up to 15 hours in any 24 hours. Food is freshly prepared, basic but very good. There are roof top gardens with pleasant views. Tourists wanting to see Katmandu or go trekking etc can organise their activities at the Guesthouse where the help and support is efficient and not expensive, nothing is too much trouble. I have returned many times to this place and as a budget end place to stay I would deffinately recommend it.

Room Tip: Chose a room with a balcony

This hotel seemed like a good value when I researched it before coming, but then I noticed many things wrong with it: The bed frame is splitting ready to break any day now, making the bed slant. 2 out of 3 showers were cold. The taps on the sink both don't work. Only a wierd tap under the sink controls the water, and when the hot water is working, all you can get at the sink is scalding hot water from the one hot tap. The sheets have spots of dried blood, the towel is brown from years of being used on the floor. The fan is loud, the power can cut out all night so your phone/camera won't charge. I can hear the guy next door pee, and if anyone on the hall has the TV on. They charged me more for my room than it said on their website (fine print). The rooftop has a good view, and the staff is nice, otherwise, don't stay here. There are 10 other guesthouses on the same street.

We stayed here in November 2011 as a trio. The guesthouse is very close to the shops and restaurants but quiet as it is on the edge. Our room was located on the top floor next to the rooftop garden, we spent many mornings just watching the view from here. When we arrived our flight was delayed and we were worried how we were going to contact the hotel, but our airport transfer waited for us for hours so that we arrived safely. Food in the restaurant was surprisingly good and the staff are very eager to please. We had a very early morning start on a couple of occasions and it was no trouble for them to organise a breakfast for us and safe storage of our luggage. We really enjoyed our stay here and actually booked further nights here at the end of our trip. The only small downside was our bed was quite hard and sometimes there was no hot water, but the water is run (I think) off solar power so you just had to be clever when you shower and I think that as a general rule the beds are much firmer than our uk counterparts. Overall we were very happy and would come back again. Thank you Raj and staff.

I stayed here during a volunteer orientation, but I've dated there since then just because it feels like home! It's in a cute peaceful location about a 5 minute walk from Thamel. Quiet, beautiful rooftop view, with monkey temple in the back. And the staff are so wonderful, nice, and fun. You can find both simple cheap rooms with shared bathroom, or reasonably priced nicer bigger rooms, that are clean and good standard for Kathmandu. I'd recommend!

I spent several days in this hotel and at all times the staff were very helpful and very honest. Good food available at all times. Quiet and away from the very busy streets of Thamel.
A basic guest house offering quiet, clean rooms with great service from great people.

Booked online before arrive in KTM, I stayed 4 nights in total in the annex to the main hotel, either side of a long trek around the Annapurnas.. Rooms were spacious & clean, service was excellent (they remembered my name on returning after 26 days away, felt like one of the family). Didn't charge for airport pick up as I was staying over 3 nights in total, on departure taxi arranged for 500NR. Location set in a quiet neighbourhood NE of central Thamel, 7 minute walk away. Wi-fi in rooms, also public internet service downstairs. Charged 15US/night for a single room with double bed, which compared favourably with central Thamel prices.
