Property Information:

Tourist from all over the world are welcome to stay at Hotel Florid Nepal in Kathmandu valley, the capital city of Nepal, where the awe-inspiring Himalayas, highest mountains on earth, are well known. Giving outstanding service with reasonable price is the Hotels main objective.'Surely there comes a time when counting the cost and paying the price are the things to think about when we are travelling. Also what matters is value - the ultimate value of what one does. We value your time and you cheris our servi 'We welcome you in the country of Culture, Mountains, Lakes and most religious to Hindus and Buddhists alike as the abode of the gods .

The Kathmandu Valley may have been inhabited as early as 900 BC, but the oldest known objects in the valley date to a few hundred years BC. The earliest known inscription is dated 185 AD. The oldest firmly dated building in the earthquake-prone valley is almost 1,000 years old. It is said that the Buddha and his disciples spent some time in the area of present-day Patan in the 6th century BC. Four stupas around the city of Patan said to have been erected by Charumati, daughter of Ashoka the Great, a Mauryan king, in the 3rd century BC attest to the ancient history present within the valley. As with the tales of the Buddha's visit, there is no evidence supporting Ashoka's visit, but the stupas probably do date to that century.

The Kirats are the first documented rulers of the Kathmandu Valley, the remains of their palace are said to be in Patan . The Licchavi Dynasty whose earliest inscriptions date back to 464 AD were the next rulers of the valley and had close ties with the Gupta Dynasty of India. The Malla Dynasty consisted of Newar rulers, who ruled Kathmandu Valley and the surrounding area from the 12th century till the 17th century when the Shah Dynasty under Prithvi Narayan Shah conquered the valley as he created present-day Nepal. Most of ancient Nepalese architecture present in Nepal today is from the Malla/Newar era.

The Kathmandu Valley consists of three primary cities: Kathmandu itself, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur. Lalitpur and Kathmandu run up right against each other (again, separated only by the Bagmati river), while Bhaktapur is set off much closer to the eastern foothills. Kathmandu itself is home to most of the government offices, embassies, corporate houses, and the palace. The King's Palace (a large newly-pink building) stands right next to Thamel - the tourist hub of the country. Thamel consists of two parallel streets just to the west of the palace. It is home to different hotels, ranging from different stars. The palace is at the head of Durbar Marg, a street lined with various shops.

The old city is noted for its many Buddhist and Hindu temples and palaces, most dating to the 17th century. This valley hosts an UNESCO World Heritage Sites composed by seven different Monument Zones: The centers of the three primary cities, Kathmandu Hanuman Dhoka, Patan and Bhaktapur, the two most important Buddhist stupas, Swayambhunath and Boudhanath and two famous Hindu shrines, Pashupatinath temple and Changu Narayan. Since 2003 the site has been inscribed in the World Heritage List as being in danger out of concern for the ongoing loss of authenticity and the outstanding universal value of the cultural property.
Kathmandu has been popular with western tourists since the 1960s when it became a key stop on the hippie trail, when Jho: Chhee (Nepal Bhasa, continuous house)(Freak Street) was the one of the main location. It is also the subject of a popular Bob Seger song for the same reason.

    Booked a deluxe double, reception staff had 'deluxe double' written next to our booking but they tried to set us up in a standard double. We had to ask twice to go to the deluxe room, so watch out for that. Room in itself was clean on arrival, but it would be good if the toilet paper bin had been emptied during our stay! Staff very very keen to sell a tour or trek, to the point of being pushy.
