Based on our own experience, the perfect location for a hotel – like the one we want to make – is defined by two criteria:

  1. It must be away from, but nearby, touristic area
  2. Be located in pleasant surroundings with local center, good infrastructure and with a life of it’s own. And Tings is surrounded by the best restaurants and bars in town – read about the places Thomas & Annette go for a drink, dinner og just to meet people.


Tings Lounge Hotel & Tings Tea Lounge is located in Lazimpat in the northern part of Kathmandu on Nursary Galli, House 322.



Take Lazimpat Road going North from the Royal Palace. After 800 meter you reach the sign for the Danish Embassy. Don’t follow that direction! Turn left (before Hotel Gangjong), pass Nepali Chulo on your right and continue for another 75 meter. Here you find Tings on your left – just before Search for Common Ground (the last house before the road turns).

Cafes, restaurants, jazz clubs, lounges, galleries and shopping is right outside the door.

Lazimpat is the closest you come to Notting Hill, Pisserenden, Soho, PrenzlBerg, Bastille/Republic here in Kathmandu. An unpretentious and relaxed blend of locals and internationals.

… and it’s easy to find!

    1. Hi Chris,
      Rates are between 15 usd and 45 usd pr night. You can see the rooms and corresponding prices in the menu Tings Lounge Hotel.



  1. Hi
    I am planning on coming to Nepal for some volunteer work in November and will not get into Kathmandu until 10.30pm, am I still able to check in this late at night if I book a room for the night and what would be the safest way to get there at that hour?



    1. Emma,

      Yopu can always check in no matter how late you arrive… it’s not ‘unsafe’ to arrive late. Just very inconvenient because its dark, the number of taxis at the airport are limited (*and more expensive) etc. Just like in any other big city at this hour.

      The easiest thing for you is to get a taxi to pick you up. We can arrange that for you (without extra charge or provision) or you can get someone else to do it… We have had a couple of situations where the driver tells our guests that Tings are closed OR that he doesn’t know where it is… Thats just because he wants to take you to a hotel where he gets provision… again, that’s not dangerous… its the ‘charm’ of traveling in this part of the world. Bring your mobile and call us from the Taxi…

      Take care

  26. G'day, Could you please advise your Accommodation Establishment in relation to distance from Thamel and also, Boudnarth Stupa. Is your Establishment considered to be fairly central? says:



    1. This is difficult… most travelers stays in Thamel. But if you have a special interest in Budhism and Boudhanart you should stay there. There are lots of hotels teher = but it is mostly dharme student who stay there. Others take a taxi from Thamel (20 mon 3 US)

      Thamel is considered THE Tourist Hub – a lot of restaurants, night clubs & hotels mixed with a lot of travel agencies and souvenir shops. Most people like like it after the first visit – and the find it ‘difficult’. But ALL travelers have to go there….its very noisy – especially in the evening

      Tings is 15 minunets away from Thamel (walking distance) or 1 US by taxi (3 minutes) – in a very quiet neighborhood where all of the foreigners living in Kathmandu find the best restaurants, music places etc – all outside Tings.

      So central … maiby, Fairly central: YES.

      I suggest that you find more info on this blog…. or mail us again….

      Hope this helps



    1. Thanx a lot!!!! The great things about having a hotel like Tings are all the inspiring people passing by our life and all the inspiration we get… I’m looking forward to ‘investigating’ Rattle Jazz… Cheers…. T


  27. Hi!
    What a nice place! My boy friend and I will arrive on Dec.24 which is my birthday,we really like to spend that night in your place. Is there any room available?. And would you please inform me the lowest price of a long stay,like 3 month?(We are going to take a language course in Kathmandu,if the price is acceptalbe we’ll consider to stay longer). Do you accept Rupees? cos we maybe don’t have any Dallors with us.
    Thank you! Have a nice day!
    Danielle Huang


  28. Dear,

    We would like to make a reservation for the 27th and the 28th of January 2014.
    We saw the Cupboard Room, which we liked. Is it still available for those two nights?

    Is it possible to arrange a taxi for us at the airport? We arrive at 10.40 PM.

    Kind regards,
    Anna and Laurens


  29. Dear Ting people,
    We are 3 adult people arriving at Kathamandu April, 13 and stay here for two nights. Do you have one or two rooms for us. Your Lounge Hotel seem to be very special and nice – we would very much like to stay at your place:)
    Hope to hearing from you soon

  30. Hello,
    I would like to book the sunny lounge for April the 21st 2014 for 2 people. i was wondering how can i do that? i can not find anywhere to book. what would be the rate for this period of time.
    And i was wondering if it has a balcony or one of those nice sofa beds outside on the balcony to enjoy a nice view.
    Thank you.
    Would appreciate your quick reply.


  31. Hi there,
    Im interested in booking a room with you guys for a few nights in September. How do I contact you to arrange this?

    Kind Regards,


  32. Your place looks like a nice oasis from the chaos, noise and pollution of Kathmandu. The food and drinks look good too. I am visiting Nepal in the fall. Even if I don’t stay at your hotel, can creative people like me ( I am a photographer ), come eat,drink and “hang out ” at your place? Cheers.


    1. Hi Bobby… Tings is open to everyone… from 8 until 10 pm (kitchen close at 9)

      Top floor is for guests only – but we have lots of common space… See you … /Thomas (currently in Lisbon)
