“Very nice place ..”
Reviewed 14 December 2011

Clean rooms, comes with breakfast and excellent service. But avoid the travel desk, they are helpful but expensive. Room with the lake view is very nice but more expensive then room facing the road.

Room Tip: If not on budget choose the room facing the lake, the room facing the road can very a bit noise in t...

We landed in this hotel as the travel agent convinced us that this would be ideal and economical after our journey from Lumbini (Bhairawa) to Pokhara and also that a free taxi would take us to the hotel. But then, he also told us that the local bus journey from Bhairawa to Pokhara was not as horrible as touted!

Tired and exhausted after the ride (we did get the free taxi), we landed in the hotel at around 6 in the morning (instead of 2 as promised) and the proprietor asked us to stay at the hotel close by until the rooms were ready. Things were fine, but we felt this particular fellow working in the place was a lil' weird and decided to leave our laptop at a friend's (we made at a local shop) when we went for our week-long trek. This might have been a very good decision, because when we came back, the owner behaved appallingly.

Yearning for a shower and bed when we came back, the owner told us there were no rooms. We were disappointed, but this was hardly his fault. We asked for the bill and noticed that he had added an extra day. We tried to explain his mistake by even offering to show our travel tickets to remind him. He then made a few phone calls and realized his mistake, but either because he got off from the wrong side of his bed that day or because he was what he was, he refused to admit his mistake and kept on insisting that we pay. He ranted about some crazy things like how he has roamed 20 countries till date and that we were nuts to know about the system, and that that we came at six and the payment for a day begins at 12!!! The rooms were hardly that expensive in terms of Nepali rupees, but the man's arrogance and behavior were appalling. I was furious at being cheated and being subjected to such behavior. But my bf did the practical thing, negotiated the price, collected the rest of our clothes that we had left, and found another hotel. We were able to give a piece of our minds to the man by thus playing "the good cop bad cop" routine!

So, if you have a choice, I would say, avoid the place, there are plenty of nice places with economical rates all around. If you land in the place in peak season with no other rooms available elsewhere, be precise in your conversations about about the price and timings.

We (myself & two others) booked this hotel thro' the Badal Travel Agency at the Nepalis-Indian Border town, Sunauli. Great hotel with friendly staff. The room and bath are clean. It's the best budget hotel that I have stayed in this trip.

Room Tip: Room A12 has excellent viewed of the Annapurna Mt.

Myself and 2 friends stayed at Pokhara Palace Hotel after being adviced by my brother that its a great place to stay. The location was perfect - just a 2 minute walk to lakeside but far enough away that its not too noisy. The views from the balconys on each level were stunning and the service was excellent. Everyone we spoke to there was really happy with the place also and pleased theyd chosen Pokhara Palace.

Room Tip: Fresh Mixed Juice and Pancakes for breakfast YUM

The Pokhara Palace is not a palace! - It is a small guest house run in a family way by the owner Raju.

The owner is however very helpful and will arrange anything and everything you need help with - taxis strikes and other irregularities thrown up by the turmoil in Nepal are nothing to him.

The rooms are small but comfortable and it was not too cold in Dec. There is a kind of view from the roof top, but Pokhara is full of impressive viewpoints that this hotel can't compete with.

The food is OK, but there is so much selection in town, even for breakfast. The main street in town is about a 10 minute walk, so the hotel itself is not noisy.

If you do ask Raju to arrange anything, do ask the price beforehand (guides, laundry, transport....) as I was sometimes surprised by the prices, but I had already arranged the times and places.

Overall, for the price, it was a good place to stay.

Stayed with Raju and family at the Pokhara Palace Hotel and had a great time. Hotel is very nice and good value for money and the family make you very welcome. The breakfast is especially good! I would recommend anyone going to Pokhara to stay at the Pokhara Palace Hotel, also if you are going trekking Raju can organise a trekking guide from his extensive list of contacts.
