Quiet and Affordable alternative to Thamel
Atmosphere, location, staff attitude
I always use the International Guest House when I visit Kathmandu. Clean, reliable and affordable it's a very good alternative to the expensive hotels near Durbar Marg and it's just adjacent to Thamel - so perfect location.

Lots of character
Good location away from the noisy bars of central Thamel. The staff are always helpful and accommodating. It has a lovely garden to sit out in while having your breakfast
We've stayed here as a family many times and still we keep returning. The staff can't do enough for you. They are so helpful and accommodating. Yes, the rooms are basic, but all are clean and comfortable. It's in a quiet location, but only 5 minutes max to the centre of tourist Thamel.

the beauty and the beast.
beauty. garden. breakfast.
It is a beautiful place. However, beauty is above comfort there. We stayed in the super deluxe room, but we still had to flush the toilet with a bucket...

Nice place to relax in Thamel.
location, garden and friendly staff.
We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay the staff were very helpful the breakfast was great and plentiful, rooms are a bit dated but spotlessly clean bathrooms could do with an upgrade. Great location for all the temples around Thamel and Katmandu. Minor issue WiFi could be better.

The beautiful courtyard garden, the wooden carvings and decor, the service
The International Guesthouse is a beautifully presented hotel. The staff are very polite and professional and the tour office is efficient in facilitating the next step of your holiday. The courtyard garden is an idyllic environment and the food is well above average. Also, the best momos I've encountered are in a tiny red and white cafe just around the corner. The only minor criticism I have is that there are a lot of dogs barking early in the morning in the surrounding area, but its worth putting up with that just to stay in such a nice environment.

Not all rooms are the same.
Great location. Helpful staff. Nice garden and bar.
I stayed in one of the cheapest rooms. It was a little dingy. I didn't mind, but the hotel lobby, garden, and bar are all very quaint and pretty, so the room was a bit of a let down when I opened the door.

Helpful staff, locaiton, lovely garden
This hotel was very good. Close to Thamel but situated in less crowdy and noisy part of the city. I especially appreciated hotel tourist service - they provided me with a driver and comfortable car so that I could see all the places of interest. Moreover, these two trips were for very good money. Another great thing about the hotel is the lovely garden and hotel exterior.

Super high value for money, great renovation, great staff
You will almost certainly love the renovation for this hotel. 100% authentic Nepal style. The location is the best, just outside of Thamel area, not so crowded and yet you can walk to the crowded Thamel area within 5 minutes.
