Always there with a smile and ready to help, advise or just have a laugh with all the time, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms and accommodation aren't fancy or...

I honestly don't know why this hotel is getting great reviews because my stay there was just AWFUL. I've been putting off writing a review because I would rather forget the bad experience, but I don't feel like I can keep quiet for long seeing all these positive reviews from relatively newbie posters. Anyway, I'm a legit reviewer of plenty...

I took rooms alone, cheapest price inside thamel I've seen, always with truly hot water, good WiFi compared to other hotels, electricity almost always up. Young and enthusiastic crew, which leads to amazing and loving service. I slept there during the big 2015 earthquake, ask them, they remember me well! If I ever come back, this is my hotel for...

We stayed 6 nights in a deluxe triple room in Festoon hotel. The room and the bathroom were clean when we checked in, and the housekeeping came in our room everyday to tidy our beds and clean our room and bathroom. We had clean towels everyday!! The room and the bathroom were big enough for three people. We had a...

Tip: Visit before booking or just book the one night to see if it is your thing. Pros: The staff were very friendly. It's in a reasonably convenient location. Taxis can't go down the street it's located on so its a bit quieter. Plenty of motorbikes though! Cheap!! Cons: Bed was a bit uncomfortable Bathroom smelt strange. Like bleach and...
