I stayed at the Marigold hotel for a few nights when i was in Pokhara and found it perfect for my needs.
I arrived to Pokhara without any hotel reservation so i just took a little stroll and thought the Marigold looked nice and it had the location i was looking for right by the lakeside.
I was very happy with the 8 dollars per night i paid for my single room with bathroom and a big comfy bed.
The hotel also has a really nice rooftop terrace with a little garden and nice views over Pokhara.
they have a travel agency and a bicycle rental aswell and they were friendly and profession people at the place.
All in all a very good deal if you ask me.
The rooftop terrace with the little garden is hard to beat.
I stay in this guest house whenever I am in Pokhara. And all our friends too stay with us because the place is clean, staffs are friendly and the service is best. They also guide us with all our visiting needs. Hotel has Free WI-FI and provide electricity if power cut is occurred after sunset (But the WI-FI is stop then).
Near Fewa Lake...Sunset and Sunrise both can be enjoyed from the rooftop...Full view of the Lake..friendly staffs and the Manager has a great sense of humor. :D I even cooked (in the Guest House Kitchen) and the chef helped me at midnight for our late coming friends. :)
This inn was highly rated by another travel website as well as by a popular travel guidebook, so I decided to try it myself...and I wasn't disappointed.
Right from the time I emailed an inquiry, I got a prompt response. And when I confirmed my booking, they took it on good faith though they did not have the facility for an online reservation payment. The manager, Bishnu was a swell and cheerful guy who warmly welcomed me the moment I arrived and was very helpful with arranging taxi rides and booking me for the ultra-light plane ride.
If I were you, I'd book one of the 2 rooftop rooms that opens to a big balcony from where you could see Mt. Macchapuchhare at daybreak. Each room can accommodate 3 people, it has a ceiling fan, a closet, and its own bathroom but no TV, phone or mini-bar. You'd have to secure the door with a padlock (provided) whenever you go out. WIFI is free but the signal is so weak at the rooftop you'd have to go down to the lobby for a better reception. They also have their own generator for those prolonged power outages particularly in the early evenings.
I certainly recommend this place, very homely.
The inn is located at lakeside so very accessible to stores, restos, bars, bicycles and boat rentals.
Stayed a few nights on a business visit. The hotel proved good for the purpose of work and sleep, but seemed a bit sterile (brand new when I got there). They had a good hotel breakfast, and that is unique on Lakeside. Their wifi internet connection did not work when I was there.
All sorts of modern stuff in the room, which is far from the Lakeside I used to know. It took away some of the spirt of Lakeside all this glitzy and polished stuff. There is a massage and hairdresser inside the compound, thet may be why they call themselves a resort?
Does not seem to have anything to do with the actual Mount Kailash in Tibet. Good parking space. They need a smallish swimming pool to call themselves a resort in my eyes!!!
This hotel is run by a friendly family, and has a great view out over the northern part of Phewa Tal. It's a little way away from the busier section of Lakeside, between the main area and Lakeside North in an area called Khahare, and is therefore a bit quieter, but still an easy walk to everything. In Feb 2009 we paid 350NPR (Nepali rupees) per night for a room with a ensuite toilet/shower room.
My wife and I had a wonderful stay in this quiet little guesthouse, which sits in a rural setting, yet is only a short walk from the main tourist area at lakeside. The family that runs the guesthouse is very friendly and helpful, especially Bhadra who is the owner and an excillent trekking guide. To anyone wanting to chill out after a trek in the Annapurna region, or about to embark on a trek, Trekkies Guesthouse is the perfect place! The price is only 300 rupees a night for a room with private western style bathroom.
The guesthouse has a lovely little garden and a great view of the lake from the roof top, meals are available there, and there is storage for any luggage you don't want to drag around with you while trekking. As well as being a trekking guide, Bhadra is capable of organizing porters if necessary and to help clients plot out the best trekking routes, and he charges lower rates then most other guides and trekking companies.
If you want to experience real Nepali hospitality than is this a perfect place for you !
This hotel is centrally located in Pokhara, not far from central lakeside with the souvenirshops, restaurants and trekkingshops.
The hotel has a big sunny garden where you can relax with a nepali tea or a beer after a hike or an other activity around Pokhara. The rooms are big and clean. There's laundry service, all kinds of information about trekkings, bustickets etc.
From the rooftop you've great views of the Annapurna's . There's also a pick up service from the busstation or airport .
Raraa Hotel's owners Anil and Radhaa are the main draw of this hotel. I have followed them around Pokhara Damside and Lakeside whenever they have changed to new locations. See my description of Pleasant Home Hotel for a view to their past place...
I feel very much at home here, at the most I stayed about a month. The price is right, the service is laidback but fine, you'll get honest advice and assistance if you need help. A safe place for property, single travellers. Small provision stores next door.
The rooms are ok, location is ok, what I miss is a garden, but this is somewhat substituted for by a large roof terrace. I do not feel bad if i take my meals another place, their kitchen service is very ad hoc so if you need something they will cook it up for you.
Raraa Hotel is very suitable to my needs:
- Some distance away from busy Lakeside road and traffic and honking buses
- Walking distance to all of Lake Side ( a bit far south, perhaps)
- Good 2-3 beds room, some with verandha or common access to top floor verandah with a view to the mountains
- Omelette and toast breakfast according to need.
- Radha makes the best fish curry in Nepal upon order.
- Returning from the bush, a cold beer quickly appears on my doorstep or table
- Telephone messages are received and remembered
- Can organise just about anything
- In-house laundry service
- Left-luggage facility.
What else do you need, really? For dinner, I normally go out to different places, and Raraa Hotel staff don't expect you to eat in their dining room. But you can, if you preorder.
The City of Pokhara has many hotels to suit your budget all are within Rs. 400 to 1000 or USD 10 to 50. Please dont haste in selecting the hotel. Go for bargain , you will end up in getting a room with hot & cold water and probably a bath tub in the bathroom for only Rs.500/- or USD$ 10-12. Please give a sincer try before settling in. Please find some ohotos taken from the roof top of Dharma inn.
Perhaps one of the most comfortable stay at very resonable price! The owner of the hotel Mr. Chabi gave us astronomical discount of the room with personalized service. We got a letter from his friend Mr. Ritwik Das owner of a vegetarian Restaurent at Thamel, Kathmandu, Sri Lal Vegetarean Restaurent. The room has running hot & cold water, double bed and a separate bed for the child, clean sheets, towels, bath tub and so on. He gave it to us for 50% discount.
There is one more reason to give such discount as this is a lean season due to Maoist problem in Nepal. There is a real shortage of tourist inflow in Nepal due to political problem. But we never faced any problem anywhere in Nepal.
Anyone, visiting Pokhara can stay in Dharma Inn and can also take my name as now Mr. Chabi has become our personal friend. We are sure that VT visitors will get good discount, as I have told him about VT.
Besides Hotel Mr. Chabi also runs a travel agency to take care of all your travel needs in and around Pokhara, Bus/ Air ticket to Kathmandu will be arranged in a short notice. Their Restaurant and Room service provides tasty food at a resonable price. Just give it a try.
Good and clean guesthouse, with laundry service.
Friendly people, that also can help you book flights etc.

It was .... INTERESTING to say the least...
Mostly because we had the worst ever thunderstorms haunting the valley and the lake and the two old bamboo treets outside the hotel are magnets for flash lights and were hit in succesion...
I didn't get a wink of sleep because of the bad weather. But the hotel is in a great location and the manager and team are extremely friendly and helpful.
full view of the Annapurna from the bedrooms (IF the season is right)
Clean and most of all big rooms with a terrace and lovely gardens to chill out
Set 10 minutes walk from the main streets, so a lot more quiet than the main guesthouses.
As soon as you walk in you feel that you are welcomed into a home. Spacious room with photographs of the mountain ranges. Marble bathroom. Beautifil garden where you are offered lemon grass tea, lemoin grass fresh from the garden. Beds are soft and comfortable. They do shut the doors at 10pm, but you can get in after that. I can't believe that it's only costing 500 rupees for the two of us. Great palce just of the lakeside main road.
Okay, so you don't get a view. But it is so peaceful and relaxing. 5 minutes down the road and there is your view. Where else would you be offered a banana in the afternoon.
The 3 Sisters are a unique operation, better view the web site for a complete overview.
The lodge is an income-generating activity for their training centre for women porters and trekking guides.
Focussing on women customers they have a nearly captive group of customers, and the word-by-mouth adverstisements have been sufficient to enable them to stay well afloat even during recent downturn in tourism in Nepal.
The lodge is located at the western end of Lakeside, Pokhara, just beyond the police check point. It has a great view of the lake and the mornings especially are super with a breakfast on the verandah and taking in the lake scenery. Lots of wires and some agricultural traffic on the road just below, but after a while you do not notice anymore.
The restaurant menu is focussed on trekkers' needs, so lots of healthy and filling items here. It's not a wlak-in restaurant per se; mainly set up for hotel guests, so if you come in unannounced and ask for a meal it may take some time. The breakfast is easier, with less preparation time. The lodge restaurant is planned to go organic soon.
The rooms are simple, but extremely clean, good bedding and well-appointed, albeit a little impractical shower arrangements. Hot solar water. I will come here again!
Very good breakfast, I tend to go for breakfast here wether I stay or not here while in Pokhara.
Super view of the lake.
Paragliders have their landing area in the fields just across the road.
Very clean, women run, good trekking agency, everything thrown into one modest operation that is extremely successful.
Specialized in women customers/clients.
This lodge was exceptionally clean and provided a array of facilities without any pressure.
The rooms offered where clean and came with fresh bedding and and towels in a well kept garden.
They also offered Laundry, but were quite happy if you wanted to wash your own clothes outside and use the washing lines.
The price of the room was a fixed 300 rupees in the month of August... but if you stay for over aperiod of days you can get a small discount on top of this.
The family was very friendly and can arrange treking and porters or guides and they have a notice board with information of previous treks.
The rooms upstairs are quite hot in the summer but they do come with a fan and you can get great views of the mountain ranges.
Great Garden for relaxing in
