What a lovely festoon hotel with sweet place!! the location is very comfort to go kathmandu wherever .We could drop off our purchases in the middle of the day and rest for a while. The deluxe room is worth the extra money (beds are so comfort like very easy to sleepfull duvets. The staff here were incredibly kind spically babu, gokul rames really wanna hug :), and every time they offer us coffe. The staff couldn't do enough for us. You can have your (free) breakfast on the rooftop with a nice view of the ktm city. we also booked here kathmandu and pokhara trip with really chep price thanks festoon,see you soon.

This is the hotel for budget traveler, yes clean room, 24hr hot shower, great wi-fi and awesome staff, first I was worried to see the bad review about this hotel but I can honestly say I had no issue at all and walked away a happy and well rested customer.
Is this a high end hotel? Nope.
Is EVERYTHING brand new and perfect? Nope.
Is it clean? One of the cleanest hotels i have ever seen and I have stayed in a LOT of hotels since we travel so much.
The owner obviously takes pride in his business, that is obvious from the front desk staff, Oh ya... FREE WIFI with a perfect signal.

Room Tip: Don't miss this hotel, don't miss the room, don't miss the free breakfast, stay happy, h...

We stayed 6 nights in a deluxe triple room in Festoon hotel.

The room and the bathroom were clean when we checked in, and the housekeeping came in our room everyday to tidy our beds and clean our room and bathroom. We had clean towels everyday!!

The room and the bathroom were big enough for three people.

We had a free pick-up from the airport.

Breakfast was very good in rooftop .
The hotel is central located at touristy spot in Kathmandu. Durbar square is only about a 15 minute walk away. Souvenir/handcraft shops are only a couple of minutes away from the hotel.

Staff is friendly and helpful.
I definately recommend this hotel to anyone going to Kathmandu. I too would go back to this hotel if I ever go back to Kathmandu.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter"

Tip: Visit before booking or just book the one night to see if it is your thing.
The staff were very friendly.
It's in a reasonably convenient location.
Taxis can't go down the street it's located on so its a bit quieter. Plenty of motorbikes though!

Bed was a bit uncomfortable
Bathroom smelt strange. Like bleach and mold?
Wifi was pretty slow
Water smelt so bad when it came out of the shower and taps - I skipped the shower and waited til my next hotel.

Guys if you are looking for a budget place to stay at Kathmandu at reasonable cost then look no further than this great place with surprise warmth company in the hands of Babu and his team. Clean room with wonderful environment at sky garden view from the top floor overseeing the mountains scenery and surrounding buildings in the city. You will be spoiled with the kitchen crew on breakfast menu and delight meals served. You simply get more than you asked from Driver Mr Ramesh,who will stop at attractive spots for photo taking and wait patiently whilst we roam the place on our own sweet time. What else can I say more.
