The perfect place in KTM to begin your journey in Nepal. Good price for a quite place in Thamel. More than only a guesthouse, The Potala Tourist Home is managed by Ramseh who will do everything to make you happy. More than an agent, he is a great advisor you can trust to organise tourist activites or even play soccer...

Ramesh will help you with any request you have, from pick up from the airport to organising and advising on trips. The rooms we booked reflected what we paid (travelling on a budget).

I stayed at Potala tourist home during 3 weeks last December. Ramesh, who runs the hotel, is the best guy ever. He picked us up at the airport, helped us buying equipment and gave recommendations of restaurants and things to do. Had a great experience with my two friends in a large, good priced room. I can greatly recommend Ramesh...

Potala Tourist Home is a place I go to stay frequently as I volunteer here in Nepal for 10 months. It's the first place I stayed at and it feels very warm and comfortable. The staff is great and amazing breakfasts in the morning. Hot water and good wifi. Great place.

It's great place where to stay, great location and nice staff ready to help with everything you would need. It's not on the big road so we were happy we could have some relatively quiet place where to stay.
