Best hotel in Nepal by far, owners are really awesome people which you can fully trust on every question you have!


Perfect location to explore Pokhara and his surroundings, everything close by! The rooms we had (3rd & 4th floor, deluxe double room) are spacious and clean, nice bathroom and huge beds. Minus: no table, no wardrobes, no attached balconies (although described), many next door generators, terrible noisy water pump. Staff is friendly and try to support as much as they can - although you're able to arrange everything yourself on the main street of Pokhara Lakeside.


We had a wonderful time at the Mountain House! There's a reason this place is so highly rated- Stan and his wife were kind and helpful. We arranged trekking, paragliding, and taxis through the guesthouse. Breakfast was not included but worth paying for. So good!!! We loved eating every morning in the front garden. The house is located down a quiet street off the main road. We stayed in different rooms before and after trekking. Both very nice and so clean! We will definitely return here again.


After travelling India and Nepal with a mate, it was apparent that many locals that spoke to us had a hidden incentive. However the amazing Mountain House couple had no hidden incentive. Their incentive is extremely clear, this is to make you feel 100% happy and to ensure you maximise your time spent in Pokhara. This was hands down the nicest environment we stayed in during our month away. Stan the owner was fantastic and very knowledgeable, we booked everything with him; rafting, Chitwan, treks


very clean, nice stafff, nice room,good location, my only remark against the services is no guest computor, but the owner did say i could borrow his daughter....


We had a fantastic experience at The Mountain House. The owner was extremely helpful when showing us what sights to see, how to get there and the best value options. His wife was lovely and they both made us feel very welcome. We booked our trip to Chitwan through them for what we felt was a fair price. The room was clean, bright and spacious and there was a nice hot shower. We would highly recommend The Mountain House.

We stayed in The Mountain House for a couple of nights. We hadnt planned anything by the time we arrived but as soon as we met the manager he organized everything for us. They booked a 3 day trekking for us as well as the bus tickets back to Ktm. The rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable...and the atmosphere is brilliant!! We genuinely recommend this hotel, you will feel as if you were at home!

We had a very good stay at this guesthouse. The staff was very friendly and really takes time to know their guests and to make them comfortable. Also, we were provided with honest and good information about trekkings around the area. A large choice in breakfast was available.


We LOVED our stay here! Would come back any time! Best hotel we stayed at in Nepal so far! Excellent location, the couple who owns the hotel are really welcoming and friendly! They helped us a lot! It's very clean an there's a beautiful view! Can def. recommend the hotel. Love, The two Danish girls :)


A little paradise in the city of Pokhara. The family who runs this guesthouse is the kindest, most helpful and loving family I've ever met. They cared for me when I was sick and booked my travels free of charge. They really go out of their way to help you. As they said "while you are staying with us, you are our son." That sums up The Mountain House to me. It's also a beautiful building with a great common area, good wifi (for Nepal) and balconies on every level. DEFINITELY stay here.


The staff here were really warm, friendly and helpful. The room was amazing - not sure we if got a free upgrade but paid for standard double and had a lovely bright, spacious and clean room. The hostel must have had a recent refurb as everything seemed new. Also amazing views of the Annapurna mountains. Honestly can't think of a bad word to say!


Rooms are really clean, and hotel is really well located. The staff is very very kind and nice. Wi-fi works well in the room. There is a good breakfast place on the same street which is really cheap and good. They can keep your bags for free if you plan on trekking. I really recommend this place!


The owner is probably the friendliest warmest and most welcoming man we've ever met in an accomodation. He also organized our hiking permits for us and gave great recommendations. Thank you so much!
