Thamel is the main tourist hub of Kathmandu, Nepal. The streets are teeming with life. And everything is literally within a minute of this apartment.
But that's just the start. This amazing apartment is on the third floor of a beautiful Neo Classical / Newari fusion building. The two bedrooms have two classic bay windows and so that you can observe life as it happens in Thamel without the dust and noise! It also has a spacious Living/Dining area with all amenities and a fully functional kitchen.
Our apartment is not part of a hotel or a serviced apartment. It is simply, a fully furnished apartment for rent. Therefore our spaces are generous – a precious commodity in cramped Thamel! Instead of booking two puny hotel rooms, you could spend some quality time at our 800 sq. ft. two-bedroom apartment. But be aware that because it is a tourist district, there will be some road traffic and ambient noise.
The current building (built in 2010), a neo-classical and Newari fusion, was constructed in the same spot and in the same design spirit of an old house commissioned by my grandfather over a 100 years ago.
The building is designed by Nepal's top architect, Mr. Arun Pant and constructed by an ‘A' class company. It has been designed to withstand massive earthquakes. The building suffered no damage after the devastating earthquake of April 2015. A thorough check by structural engineers revealed no damage at all.
The ground floor of the building houses four shops catering to tourists. You can buy Cashmere shawls, Kashmiri handicraft and metal crafts. I'm sure they will give you a good discount if you mention that you stay above ☺
The first floor house a travel agency, the second floor is a two-bedroom apartment also listed on Airbnb as "Soundproof 2BHK Thamel Apartment". On the third floor is this two-bedroom apartment. On the top two floors is a beautiful contemporary two-bedroom penthouse also listed on Airbnb as "Contemporary 2BHK Thamel Penthouse."
The air-conditioned bedrooms have queen size double bed, large comfortable mattress, wardrobe, study table/chair, real wood parquet flooring and bathroom with running hot/cold water, western style WC, hand-held toilet spray. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom while the second bedroom has an adjoining bathroom.

Other things to note
Since the end of October 2016, Kathmandu has 24 hours power (short outages now and then is expected). But please conserve energy usage. Turn off all air-conditioning and lights when stepping out of the apartment.
Water is precious too! We have a deep bore well, from which we draw water, we filter and store in our underground storage tank. We also have two tanks on the rooftop that we replenish every day from the underground storage tank so that guests always have water.
