International Guest House, which was founded in 1980 as a small family business with just 13 rooms, has grown to establish itself as one of Kathmandu's leading hotels. One of Lonely Planet's four top picks for 5 years running (2008 - 2012) and rated excellent by over 50 travellers on Trip Advisor, IGH is tucked away in a quiet residential location just a minute's walk from bustling Thamel. Its elegant design draws from Tibetan and traditional Nepalese cultural art and architecture: including wood-carved windows dating back over a century and traditional Newari Dachi Appa bricks. We have 55 rooms catering to those travelling on a range of budgets: from clean but affordable units to luxury suites, and the hotel's newest wing offers fully-serviced apartments for those who want a more permanent address in the city. All our guests enjoy the same access to our first-class facilities: including our charming garden, wifi, and well-trained and attentive staff.
