“Welcoming staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I have stayed at the Stupa a few times now. Rooms are good, spacious and clean. A lot of the rooms have good views of the Annapurna range, weather permitting. Its a good location, close enough for a two minute walk to lakeside, but far enough away to miss the noise. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The manager assisted us to organise good paragliding and local transport.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the mountains.

The Stupa was our introduction to Nepal and at the end of our trek. As a first timer to Nepal, I have no comparison hotels or lodges to any of those we used, so anyone reading my comments should bear that in mind. I have however, travelled in 3rd world countries and Asia before, so am accustomed to some conditions that are common to these locations.

Nor can I comment on the value for money - it was part of our tour package.

The Stupa is a family run business and very well located near, but off, the main street in Pokhara.

My room on both occasions was an upper corner room facing West. It was large, clean, and the bathroom was adequate, although a little dated. A cupboard or bench surrounding the wash basin would have been useful. There is plenty of hot water. If you haven't been trekking yet, you may not understand the importance of this statement - but you will!

We were a group of 10 and had three breakfasts and two dinners at the hotel. The breakfasts were average (omlettes were a good bet - "soft eggs" a bit hit & miss with the boiled or poached).
The muesli with fruit & yoghurt was excellent. Give up on coffee until you get back to your home country if you're a latte/espresso afficionado. Try masala tea instead.

Apart from the dal bhat, the restaurant's dinner offerings were pretty ordinary. Very ordinary. Try Mike's Breakfast or one of the other restaurants along the Lake instead.

Something to note: If you use the Hotel's safe deposit boxes, take your own lock. I found, by error and to my dismay, that my key and that of others in our group fitted several other locks to the safe deposit boxes. I took this up with our tour leader and the Duty Manager at the time and replaced that lock with one of my own immediately. The problem may have been fixed, but as I didn't use the safe deposit boxes on our return, I have no way of knowing.

I used an internet cafe, so can't comment on the Hotel's wifi or internet service. Other than that, the staff were pleasant, occasionally confounded by what would seem a fairly ordinary request, but generally helpful.

The garden is a lovely refuge from the dusty streets and very pleasant spot for a cool drink and snack in the evening. We had a party there with our Porters & Guides at the end of our trek and it was the perfect venue.

As a base and somewhere to leave our luggage while we were on trek, the Stupa suited us perfectly. If I were to stay longer, I'd see what else was on offer - and may well end up back at the Stupa. As I said at the outset - don't have anything else to compare it with ... yet.

Room Tip: Ask for a top level corner room

Stayed here at the beginning and end of our trek. Weather was terrible upon arrival so no view to be seen in any direction but upon return we had lovely weather & a corner room with lovely views. Rooms were clean, could've done with a more updated bathroom and would've loved a soak in a lovely bath when we got back but alas, not to be!!! Breakfast cold apart from eggs (obviously cooked to order) both times.

Good location - easy walking distance to 'the strip' where there was plenty of choice of restaurants/shops.

Free WIFI in reception - always a bonus :o)

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor corner room

Stayed for 3 nights - very nice location just off the main strip. Rooms were clean - lots of hot water. Staff very accommodating. Would not recommend their restaurant (other then their breakfast which is included in the room rate) but there are lots of places to eat a block or so away. Would stay here again

This hotel has the potential to be ok but the mix of bad attitude from the staff and the poor cleanliness and maintenance for the rooms let's it down. If nothing else available it is average but there are much better places in pokhara ffor the same money. I moved out after the first night

We stayed here one night as part of a tour of Nepal package. Located on a quiet street, it’s a short walk (maybe 5 minutes at most) to the main part of town with loads of shops and restaurants.

Our room was basic. Hard bed, TV with BBC international as the only English channel, and a couple of chairs. No shower curtain in the bathroom. We had a balcony that overlooked the neighbor’s chickens and garden. But the large windows offered great views of the Peace Pagoda and even the top of “Fishtail” in the early morning (which the crowing chickens make sure you get up in time to see).

No wi-fi, no free breakfast, and absolutely no frills - just a fairly decent, basic accommodation.
