Waren bereits im März 2013 und März 2014 als Gast im Hotel untergebracht.
Super Lage, trotz Nähe zum Zentrum sehr ruhig gelegen. Große Zimmer, 24 Stunden heißes Wasser ( in Nepal nicht immer vorhanden) sehr sauber.
Hervorzuheben ist der Besitzer Bandev mit seiner reizenden Frau und seinen Kindern.
Immer freundlich und hilfsbereit, besorgt auch wenn notwendig Informationen, Taxi und auch Bustickets und das alles ohne einen Funken aufdringlich zu wirken.
Alles in allem hat uns das sehr beeindruckt, wir werden voraussichtlich im März 2015 wieder als Gäste von Bandev im Hotel weilen.
We stayed at Diplomat Apartments for three months, july-september. The family who lives on the ground floor is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the apartment on the second floor and really enjoyed it. Two big bedrooms, a big livingroom, two balconies, a kitchen with everything we needed, wifi, electricity and gas included.The house is in a great neighbourhood with cheap local places to eat and shops for groceries et.c. It is in walking distance to Pewa lake and the more tourist dense area. Amazing wiew to the snowclad mountains and much more. Will defenitely come back here next time in Nepal.
I stayed here for a month on the top floor. The apartment is clean with a nice kitchen and fantastic clean views of the Himalaya. The rooftop is great for relaxing and for the sunset. The owner and his family are friendly and can speak English well. The owner really helped me when I became sick with appendicitus by taking me to hospital and staying 3 days while I recovered... thank you again. Great wifi and 12volt backup electric system, and solar hot water.
Near the apt there are many shops and a bakery. The area is quiet, safe and friendly.
The owner is also a travel agent so he can sort out plane tickets, trekking, etc..
When you get up in the morning and open the window, the first thing you see are the great white mountains. The location of the apartement couln't be better. You don't have any noise from the cars and lakeside. Though you can be in the busy part in 10 minutes walking of less than 5 minutes by bice.
The place looks clean and has everything you need.
If there is any problem you can walk downstears and the family/ owners and they will help you.
The owner also has an office in Lakeside. From there he can arrange everything you need.
I have lived in the apartement for 2,5 months now and it really feels like home! If i ever come back to Pokhara, i would stay here again. I can recommend it to everybody.
Wanting to learn Nepali, I needed to find somewhere to stay longer term and really couldn’t face the thought of living in a guest house for months on end. To my surprise, when I started investigating around Pokhara (my chosen location for the next eight months) my initial investigations led nowhere. Options were either not genuinely self-contained or simply extortionate. I was, therefore, incredibly lucky to discover a travel agent who was converting his house into long term holiday let flats. After one look I snapped up the top apartment. After two months of residency, the other flats are now becoming available and, given my visible contentment living here, my landlord asked me to let my friends know who might be looking for apartments. So I thought actually the best place to share it is here. For pictures and details about the flats check their website:
I think it’s worth adding to the promotional blurb therein that the views really are something else – coming from a mountainless country, I Cheshire-Cat-smile every morning looking north. The location is perfect – in a really friendly Nepali community but just a quick hop to the fun and frolics of Lakeside. The landlord and his family are great – I get all the privacy in the world but also friendship, chats, chai and the proverbial ‘cup of sugar’ when needed. I even went to their mountain village for their big festival, so welcoming are they. And the flat is brilliant, more than I ever hoped for and decked out with everything I need – it is so nice to make your own tea and toast in the morning!
The time I have spent in this flat in Pokhara has been brilliant. It has been really great to have such a comfy bolthole while settling into a new life abroad, and a perfect place to space study, relax and practice my faltering Nepali with the locals. See my blog if you don’t believe me! (Or if you come to view I am in the top floor flat until June 2011.)
