We had a very nice stay with Pradeep's family in Kathmandu. The place is nice and pretty quiet, though at reasonable distance from the city centre (near "Monkey Temple" / Swayambhu, about 10 minutes walking distance from there).
Staying with the Khanals was every bit as nice as we had expected. The best part of the stay was the amazing vibe we got from Pradeep's lovely family. Not for a moment did we feel that we were im an alien place. We loved the mealtime conversations with Pradeep's brother Pramod and their gracious mother. Though it was off season when we visited, there were a number of Chinese, Japanese and American guests in the house with us. It felt rather like a long-anticipated reunion more than a first visit! Thanks Pradeep for opening your home to us. Highly recommended.
We loved our stay at this place! The family was extremely generous and kind and the house is beautiful and a good location being near the monkey temple and out of the chaos of Thamel. Pradeep and Pramod were both incredibly helpful and wonderful people - everything from posting our postcards to hunting down my lost baggage with the airline to organising transportation to Bhaktapur and Patan. Great meals are available if you feel like staying in. We would definitely stay with this family again if we were in Kathmandu! Thank you for looking after us!
We had such an incredible stay at Pradeep's house in Kathmandu. Beautiful home, extremely clean and comfortable rooms and the most warm and welcoming family. We were cooked the best Dahl baht we had our whole stay in Nepal made from the fresh delicious vegetables of their family garden. We recommend this experience to everyone visiting Kathmandu!
Pradeep's family in Kathmandu were wonderful hosts. They made our stay comfortable, and enjoyable. The location of their home is ideal, away from all the hustle and bustle of central Kathmandu, but walking distance to sights such as the Monkey Temple (we even enjoyed walk from the Thamel area one day).
We twice shared a beautiful dinner with the family, and the little one's are charming. Will definitely stay here again in the future!
Seriously the nicest home in Kathmandu! I had a perfect stay! Thank you to my nepali family for hosting me. Hot showers, thick blankets, inviting home, airport pick up, tea/toast in the morning, cell phone, option of having an all day driver, clean home, a towel, and house slippers are just a few things that made my stay here amazing. I couldn't ask for a better home to stay at in Nepal. I wish I had months to spare, I would have loved to stay here longer. I miss you all! Aloha.
This house is like a palace! And everyone is so kind. Pradeep was prompt and clear with his communication and the whole family was very accommodating. Dinners were delicious and the little girl who kept us company during a lot of our meals is smart and a lot of fun to talk to. We were so sad to leave just after a couple of days. If we're able to travel to Nepal again, we're definitely staying with the Khanal family!
Everything went great and as expected. Pradeep and family were great hosts. The location is perfect-- just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu but not too far that you couldn't walk to nearly all the sights.
I had a really great stay with Pramod and his family. Wishing that I could have stayed an extra day.... Pradeep in America is the contact, but the actual stay is with his brother Pramod and family. A lovely, warm and hospitible family! Pramod was alot of help in getting to his place, very timely responses. (And he helped me find my way to the bus when I had to leave, many thanks!)
Its a lovely home outside of the busyness of KTM area, away from the noise and bustle of the city life but still very accessible.
My room accomodations were very comfortable, clean and safe...very important for a solo female traveller. They had other guests at the time and we enjoyed each others company.
It was festival time when I was there and we were entertained by the local musicians when they came calling. Fun to join in the festivities! I would definitely recommend staying here.
It was a highlight in my Nepal trip:)
