Hello! Im a medical student from Portugal, and im goin to Nepal in august doing some volunteering work. Though the NGO i joined offers us a home-stay i think i would be prefer a guest house/ hotel since im staying in kathmandu for a month. Can anyone help me find a nice and cosy place to stay?

thanks!! :)

Lots of places to stay in Thamel area of Kathmandu. It's the foreigners ghetto but a good place for cheap eats and people to meet.
I would suggest staying anywhere when you first get there, then walking around for a day or two and asking to see some rooms(there are sooo maaanny places to stay) and tell them you will be staying a month and haggle for the rate. We did this last year and people were offering us free breakfasts and great rates if we stayed the month. Just give the room a thorough check and don't pay it all up front!

hi Samira,

Nepal has been a bit disturbed since the past 2-3 yrs due to the Maoist agitation. I would advice u to be a bit careful. As for the accomodation follow the method adviced by ghostdog.
check in any decent hotel and then roam around the place for a day or two to find the best deal. U can bargain hard if u wanna stay for a month or more.
when i was in Nepal i had stayed in Hotel Ambassador. It was a good one.
Meanwhile i am planning a 2 weeks tour to Europe in july. I have heard a lot about the fascinating and enchanting charm of Portugal. i would love to visit ur beautiful country. Lets see if it materialises

Cheers
Arif
