English AND french speaking (both very good). We stayed for our 2 first nights in Kathmandu, and got a very welcoming start. Flexible, we could arrange to check-in already in the morning of our arrival. Cozy room and nice family, in a big clean house. We are now organizing a trek with them, since they own an agency and seem to be very professional. Also a small breakfast is included. We would come again.

What a great host Rabina and her family were. Clean room and bathrooms in a bustling yet safe and friendly neighborhood close to Thamel but not too close to be noisy. Wifi was great and the family very inviting and easy going. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Recommend to any travelers on a budget.

We are centrally located in the heart of Kathmandu, Nepal. Our house is in a good location, less than 10 min walk to Thamel; the tourist hub. Therefore, for shopping, cafes, restaurants, buses, taxis, banking etc are all very close by. This is a perfect location for both business travellers and holiday-makers.

From the terrace you can enjoy a magnificent view of Swambhunath (monkey temple), the surrounding hills, and the Himalayas beyond.

We can help you discover the different cultural groups and traditions of Nepal as already we are a mix of two ethnic groups; my husband is Chhetri.

Nous sommes une petite famille de 4 personnes, moi, mon mari, et nos deux filles. Nous (tous les deux) parlons couramment français, anglais, hindi, népalais et néwari (dialecte du Népal). En fait notre famille est un mélange de deux ethnies (culture). Je peux vous faire la connaissance de deux cultures différentes et des autres cultures du Népal.

Nous travaillons dans le domaine de tourisme.

Notre maison est deux et demi étages. Nous sommes à la proximité de Thamel (le quartier touristique) - juste 10 min à pied. Alors pour les magasins, restaurants, cafés, banques, il n'y a aucun souci. C’est bien situé pour les voyageurs également que pour les hommes d’affaires.

Depuis la terrace, on peut admirer les montagnes aux alentours et la belle vue de Swambhunath (temple du singe).

Si vous êtes intéressés pour la fête et festivals, merci de me contacter afin d'avoir le détail.
