The space
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 Building
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.

The kitchen has all the amenities you would require to prepare any meal. It is intelligently designed to enable you to cook, store and clean in as little time as possible.

The real wood dining table with a hanging dome lights provide a great atmosphere to chitchat with family or guests over dinner and wine.

You can also unwind on the comfortable leather sofa and watch a great movie or catch the latest news on the TV that has a satellite connection with over 70 channels including most of the popular news, entertainment and sports programming.

Subu and Mala's place is a gem in Kathmandu. It is centrally located in Thamel with any food you want within walking distance. There was a steady power supply and air conditioners worked whenever we needed them. Subu and Mala were tremendously responsive and bent over backwards to help make our stay a good one. Highly recommended!

The Neo Modern apartment in Thamel is ideally located for access to Thamel restaurants and shops. The apartment is also an easy walk from Durbar Marg and central Kathmandu. Taxis are readily available and can take you to anywhere else you might want to go. The apartment is clean and has good cooking facilities, a washing machine, and hot water that is either solar heated or gas heated. Beds are comfortable, plus there is a tv and a sound system that will connect to music from your phone or computer. The free wifi works great too. I confess eating many breakfasts and a few dinners at the Mitra Cafe next to the apartment building entrance. Subu and Mala are great hosts and always respond quickly if you have questions. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did!
