Potala Tourist Home is a place I go to stay frequently as I volunteer here in Nepal for 10 months. It's the first place I stayed at and it feels very warm and comfortable. The staff is great and amazing breakfasts in the morning. Hot water and good wifi. Great place.

It's great place where to stay, great location and nice staff ready to help with everything you would need. It's not on the big road so we were happy we could have some relatively quiet place where to stay.

The rooms are neat and...

We stayed here for two weeks and we really liked it. Nice rooms, friendly staff and good food. Ask for ramesh, he will fix everything for you. If you like football, tell ramesh. I played many times and it was so much fun.
