We have shopped around lots of budget places in Pokhara and Hotel President is definitely the best we have seen in terms of cleanliness, facilities and value for money. Our room was en suite with a tv, fan, wifi and phone to call reception. We paid 500 r a night for the room, but could have paid less if staying longer. The owners are lovely and the rooftop has great views. We didn't eat here, as the food more expensive than elsewhere.
Hotel President is a home away from home. I came to stay the weekend, and left 6 weeks later! Despite the family and sociable ambiance, the majestic private rooftop garden overlooking the Lake and hillside, the immaculate rooms and affordable prices, the convenient location - the owners Alvin and Sunita are reason enough to visit. In 22 months backpacking, i have never met such genuine, compassionate and caring individuals. The rooftop jams are great too, so bring an instrument!
No need for a lonely planet, the owners can write the Bible on Nepal for you...
Clean and affordable with the loveliest owners! They will go out of their way to make everything as easy as possible for you and look after you, they were like our "Nepalese parents". Handy to the main drag in Pokhara, with an awesome rooftop to chill out on. Thank you Sunita and Alveen!
