Stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Orchid from 01st to 03rd Jun.
We had booked the mountain view room but the original room that was allocated to us (302) had a non working AC so we were given an option to take the adjoining 305 which faced the house next door or 603 which was a top floor room with a brilliant view of the mountains. The only problem there's no lift so we would have to climb 6 floors a number of times. But we still opted for 603 because of the views.
The rooms although quite small are clean.
Basic amenities like shampoo and shower gels not available in the bathroom. However hot water is available at all times.
Power cuts are very common and usually generators run the fans and lights during power cuts in most of the hotels. But not here. From 3pm to 6pm there will be no power and the generator doesn't provide electricity to run the fans. So you would hope there is a good breeze that you can enjoy from the balcony.
The reason for this I guess is because tourists in pokhara would be out exploring the town and various activities rather than sitting in the room between 3pm to 6pm.
The staff especially the manager Mr. Janak is extremely friendly and helpful.
Mr. Janak was also prompt in replying to all our emails before we arrived and gave us the best tips on sightseeing in Pokhara.
Food is strictly average in the in house restaurant including breakfast.
Will definitely come back to this hotel for the fabulous views and great service.
Thanks to everyone at Hotel Orchid for a wonderful stay.
