Scarry. I was hopeing that I would get another outlook on buddhism and it settings. That was what I came here for. I was recommended Shetshen.
But it deffenetly did not broden my horison. And not many things can broden theirs!

Dirty rooms, a Little, but that is Kathmandu.

This was a very enjoyable trip. We are usually in Thamel but wanted something in KTM that was a little quieter. The rooms are basic as always, but some nice touches with Nepali textiles and thermos flask. There is wifi, but it is a bit patchy - given the outages - it was sometimes only good enough to email if you were in the foyer. The restaurant was lovely too with a good enough menu. Breakfast was reasonably substantial - in with the room price - but make sure you aren't ordering special tea eg. Ginger that then adds cost. The aeroplanes overhead seemed louder and more frequent than previously and the chanting, bells and drums from the monastery can keep you awake if you're a light sleeper. The one thing that spoils the Shechen is that some of the reception staff (Not Tashi the manager) seem unwilling to engage residents with a friendly smile. It would make such a difference if they did.

Room Tip: all rooms are light with two windows and decent bathroom with hot water and Western toilet. Choose first floor and not the two end rooms that connect - not enough privacy and soundproofing!

I would recommend Shechen Guest House as a quiet escape from Kathmandu's hustle and bustle. The rooms are simple and clean, with attached bathrooms. Hot water isn't reliable as it relies on a solar system, if the weather isn't sunny the water won't be hot. I had one very refreshing cold shower! Breakfast is included and is plenty. Great to be close to the monastery and world heritage listed Stupa.

I spent my first 2 nights in Nepal here and have found this a peaceful place in which to recover from jetlag and from which to explore Boudha and Pashupatinath on foot without having to deal with taxis. The rooms are monastically simple, the hot water is restricted, so is electricity, but you can charge devices at the reception at all times, and the wifi is pretty good. Bring earplugs to shut out the barking of dogs ar night,a nd if travelling at this time of year, bring a warm blanket or jumper as the nights can be cold and the windows are mosquito nets rather than glass. I felt more comfortable using my own sleeping bag rather than the blankets provided. The main charms of the place itself are the lovely garden and view from the roof terrace. This place attracts pilgrim type tourists of all ages rather than the standard backpack traveller, so it is as easy to fall into conversation as to have your wish for silence respected. Just outside the room there is a top vegetarian restaurant where you can even trust the salads, sit in the sun and enjoy a tea. This is excellent value for money and I will come back on my next stay.
