Yes, it's expensive by Nepali standards if you dont stay in the cheapest rooms, but you're here to see Tansen, right? 20 dollar room had hot water, TV, and except for the hard bed, totally clean and fine. They seem to be under new management, and have just renovated their restaurant, where the food was pretty good and a fair price. The town itself is lovely, and this hotel is close to the main square..8-10 min walk.

We went to Gauri Shankar Guesthouse, it was listed in the guidebook as a budget option, the room was very noisy. We went to two other places (Newa Guesthouse and Hotel Everest), both were very run down, the Hotel Everest seems to be closed already.


We finally came to Hotel White Lake, the receptionist gave us a room at the new building, it's a bank (I mean, a real money bank!), with an office, plus a funny pantry (we can't go inside, but the security guard was friendly).

I wasn't sure why we got a room there, room number 402, but we love it. The room was spacious with two beds, private shower room, a big window, a shared balcony (overlooking the whole Tansen town). The room was very quiet at night, never a sound of truck or horn!

The receptionist asked for NRs 1200 for this room, but we bargained it down to NRs 900.

Also, the hot shower water seemed to come from the solar heater above, it didn't work very well one day (not so sunny), the receptionist opened a room at the main building to let us have a very hot shower! It was good after a trek to Ranighat! :D

Downside: there's no wi-fi at this room 402.


(I've checked other rooms at the main building and old building, the rooms at the main buildings are quite okay, facing the courtyard, but I found the rooms at the old buildings a bit run down.)

Room without AC and with shared bathroom for 500 NPR. (305). Free internet for guest!

This lonely planet hotel is the only budget* and "healthy" option in this city, also known as Palpa. If you don't want to pay 20 $ per night in their new rooms, which was out of budget. You have to sleep in their old ones, which have an interesting delegation of Nepali bugs.

Fortunately, the windows had mosquito net and we "borrow" a mosquito killer from another room. We also had to use our sleeping bag as sheet, theirs were unusable.

* Hotel Gauri Shankar Guest House was also in our guidebook as a budget option, however when we saw the rooms, we run away of the hotel.
