Hotel Festoon is a perfect budget hotel for bag-packer. We stayed several nights before and after our December trekking adventure in the Himalayas. From the first hour to the last few minutes, the staff of Hotel festoon made us feel at home and among friends. They sent us to Everest Base Camp with good guide. We feel very lucky to... More

Stayed in this hotel for a total of 5 nights during our two weeks time in Nepal. It is more lilke a guest house than a hotel.

Don't be fooled by its name. Festoon is more like a guesthouse, and a mediocre one at that. The location is nice, and the exchange rate is better than the ones around Thamel, but other than that, there's nothing outstanding about this place. First, it has 5 floors and doesn't have a lift. The rooms are spartan, and to our... More
