Tucked away in a corner within the Thamel district, sits this oasis within the purview of the Thamel district. The building itself is eye-catching, especially with all the Buddhas on property. The owner is very congenial and helpful. His storage room was a real help when we traveled farther. Food and beer in the restaurant is good to get you...

we stayed in the hotel upon arrival and before departure. we enjoyed the hospitality picked up from the airport could leave luggage for a week while we tracked . Location is good on the outskirts of the Thamel so it is quieter and not so dizzy.

A beautiful heritage hotel with a nice tranquil garden. You wouldn't know, that crazy Thamel is just around the corner. Staff is very friendly, professional and helpful. The best service, I had in Kathmandu!!!

A really nice, quiet and relaxed place to stay, and generally good value. Our children enjoyed the initial garden breakfast (as breakfast is included in room charge) but commented on how these appeared to deteriorate after the first day (but they still enjoyed the garden ambience). Rooms were comfortable and clean and the hotel has a generator it uses during...

The hotel is a little Oasis in Thamel and was very reasonably priced. There is no a/c in the rooms but that was not a problem to us. The bedding was a little worn and could do with refreshing. Power was an issue with regular power cuts but the hotel had its own generator that needed to be started to...

This hotel is in the Thamel area of Kathmandu. Rooms ,food and service is fairly good. It's a quiet area and it's nice to sit outside in the beautiful garden. A walk of 30 /40 minutes will bring you to Kathmandu Durbar Suare

IG House is an oasis in Kathmandu. It's located very conveniently at the edge of Thamel, with easy access to taxis. The grounds are beautiful. Breakfast was always good, and having supper at the restaurant is a nice alternative to braving the Thamel chaos. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean. Wifi is available in the lobby, restaurant, and...

We spent 7 nights here and it met our needs for our trip. The food was good and we were lucky that the embargo from India had ended 2 weeks before we arrived. We were in Nepal for a wedding and the hotel was filled mostly with those attending it. There were scheduled rotating power outages but they had a...

For those on a mid range budget you should not look much past this hotel. The building and gardens are very pleasant and it has a nice feel to it. Service was good, breakfast adequate and it provides a good base in Kathmandu as you plan your trip around the valley and further afield. We stayed in a family room...
