We first stumbled across festoon about 4 years ago and we stay here whenever we return to Kathmandu. It's location on Z-street is perfect as you're away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy the chaos of Thamel. Babu has always been so kind to us and the service has always been great. Festoon is one of...

The standard double room with a double bed is very small without enough space to open two luggages. The carpet is extremely dirty. The door of the bathroom is badly broken. The entire...
