      Centrally located in Thamel, The location of the hotel is near to many restaurants, and the hotel itself has great Veg restaurant. the service is excellant and for the money that we are paying USD8 per room is great value. The owner Mr and Mrs Hritik is an honest and trustworthy person. At times he followed/walk with us to show direction to the bus station and some of the sightseeing places. We owe him a lot. He became a good friend to us. Highly recommended.

      Staff is very nice and helpful, there a good veg restaurant inside, it's just in the middle of Thamel.

      It's a family owned hotel. All members of the staff is so nice and helpful that you feel like you are in a family. Also the reception-entrance is connected to the restaurant, so you always find a chilly atmosphere there.

      Shree Lal Inn”

      Good food at the restaurant

      In three months in Nepal as a budget traveler, I've stayed in many Thamel hotels and hostels, and this one was unquestionably the worst. The room was dirty and the bed was hard as a rock with sheets and blankets that were too small. The building was freezing cold with no natural light and loud construction noises coming from seemingly everywhere at all hours of the day and night. The toilet had obviously not been cleaned in years, the bathroom definitely not since the last guest had left. A private room here is definitely not worth the price, even if you can't find the same price elsewhere.

      Location

      Very poor. Bed was highly uncomfortable. Toilet was a challenge to flush. No loo roll and no towels provided. No food available when I asked from the menu. Very noisy. Guests returning after 11.00pm curfew (locked out) and local families within the building making a lot of noise from 5.00am onwards.

      The rooms are small but alright. The wifi connection keeps disconnecting. The pet dog keeps barking and the neighbours keep playing loud music when you want to enjoy quite moment. The management is always keen to book you car, taxi, packaged tour and flights; however all at 15- 20% premium. The manager was rude with my local Nepali friend and didnt allow to accompany to my room :-(

      Memorable & Nostalgic Holiday”

      Food, Staff and Value for Money

      We were a family of four with both our children needing special amenities. As the rooms at the hotel were not congenial for our children, Shanti who runs the hotel with her husband Rithik, went out of her way to find another hotel that did. Such compassion and sincere support is hard to come by; this went deep down in our hearts. For this we are truly thankful. The food at Shri Lal is very good and is value for money; the restaurant was short staffed when we visited during the Dussera festival but the staff made up with their pleasant attitude and dedication. The hotel also helped us with tours and taxis. I would certainly recommend Shri Lal Inn for couples and backpackers who can enjoy cosy, tidy rooms and great food; certainly value for money. We would go back to the hotel on our next visit too. We would like to use this opportunity to thank Shanti (and Rithik) for her wholehearted support that made us feel so much at home and making our stay joyful and manageable. We wish them only the very best of life and health. God bless,

      Location

      Very uncomfortable stay in the hotel. Very Noisy, Lack of cleanliness, Restaurant is very costly as compared to the restaurants in the area. Staff were very very noisy specially two girls working in the reception, even you can hear them on the third floor. Very loud sound of the hotel bell in the middle of the night. Staff in the restaurant took wrong orders every time, and after that you have to wait for atleast 45 mins to 1 hr for the meals. Not recommended at all.
