The room is equipped with a coffee maker.
The house is situated 15 minutes by car from the airport. Extremely friendly and nice family with two dogs as pets(they're friendly too) :)Nepali Authentic Dinner can also be arranged for a nominal extra fee.
The neighborhood is considered to be very safe and is the central part of the city. There are many shops,department stores, malls, movie halls,restaurants, gym, swimming pool within walking distance of 5 minutes.
we can also help you with travelling by guiding you on public transport which is very convenient to take. Also if you want to have a sightseeing tour of the famous landmarks of the city, if informed we can take you there as well for a nominal extra fee. And if you want to travel outside Kathmandu we can very well arrange for packages and if you have any trouble with your ticketing we can help with that too :)
WE also can arrange for domestic flight tickets at a discounted rate than the market price :)
There aren't any rules to mention but a few points that would be great if you take into consideration
1. As the private room is on the top floor with a huge terrace, if you smoke we would appreciate it if you do it outside the room.
2. Please do inform us in advance if you would like to have dinner at home as it takes time for preparation.
3. As Nepal has loads of powercuts and we run on backup inverter batteries, charging or using heavy duty electrical objects cannot be supported by the inverter.
4. If you have any laundry to be done, we can have that managed given a prior notice.
5. If you are coming in late, it would be appreciated if you informed earlier as we have to lock the main gate.

I spent 10 days with Swastika and her lovely family. They took very good care of me and helped me find my way around Kathmandu. Communication worked really well and Swastika made sure that I arrived safely and she checked in on me regularly during my stay with them. I warmly recommend anyone planning to go to Kathmandu to stay in this Nepalese home.
My stay with Swastika was fabulous, and I highly recommend staying with her. Swasitka is an excellent hostess. She knows everything about Kathmandu and was very helpful with suggestions, recommendations, directions, transportation and communication - (loaned me cell phone.) It was fun talking with her as she is passionate about her work, her politics, her family and Nepal. Her English is impeccable. While I was there, her grandparents, her brother and her charming and delightful aunt were there also - a gracious and generous family. During my seven night stay, I ate most of my dinners with the family as well as all breakfasts - the home made food was delicious. The accommodations were comfortable. The warmth and friendliness of Swastika and her family were a highlight of my week in the city.
I realised we stayed at Swastika's twice and I only left a single review. Please see my other review for all the details as this stay was just as wonderful as the previous one. Swastika and her family are amazing hosts and I'm already missing chatting with them and the amazing food they make!
This was by far and away our best air bnb experience yet. Swastika picked us up from the airport and from that moment on made us feel exceptionally welcome. She helped organise transport to Nagarkot, and Pokhara for us and invited us to share a traditional meal with her family. We often ended up spending time with her just chatting. Her family were very welcoming and my daughter kept asking to spend more time with 'aunty Sticka'. The room was nice and very private as well as being quite centrally located. If you want a host who goes above and beyond then this is the place to be!
