Good clean place, good price, quiet
Surprisingly good restaurant, great staff!
The staff at Potala Tourist Home were great. The room was nice and clean. Definitely better than other hotels in the price range. Like the rest of Kathmandu, expect electricity cuts, internet outages, and the possibility of a cold shower. We stayed in the middle of winter and the room got quite cold but they furnished us with heavy blankets. From our experience with other hotels in Nepal, Potala Tourist Home was better than the other budget hotels we've stayed in. The staff really left an impression on us with their hospitality and the restaurant was really delicious! Make sure you don't confuse it with Potala Guest House, which is on the other side of Thamel!

emplacement, personnel serviable, bonne cuisine, carte variee
Tres bon accueil, personnel attentif a vos demandes, emplacement calme et proche de la station des bus, terrasse agreable. Un seul reproche concernant l'etat juste fonctionnel de la salle de bains.

Отличное спокойное место с хорошим персоналом
расположение персонал цена/качество
Хороший отель с точки зрения цены/качество. расположение отличное, не прямо в тамеле, а рядом, место более спокойное, за окном достаточно тихо персонал работает хорошо, всегда пойдет на встречу, может помочь с какими то вопросами. интернет работал медленно но стабильно.номера обычные, немного старинные, но простые чистые и просторные.
