This might just be the best hotel in the world, ever. I’ve done a lot of travelling around Asia and the lovely people that run this hotel absolutely ace it in every way imaginable. I can’t think of a better place I have stayed for this amazing price.

Really lovely hotel. Great breakfast although slow service (took over half an hour for a waffle and had to ask three times for milk). Wifi did not work at all which was quite annoying

This hotel says it is family friendly… and it is!!! From the welcoming staff that smile and engage with the children, to toys in the lobby for the kids to play with, the management and staff go above and beyond to meet the needs of their guests! The owners are very involved with the daily running of the hotel and you can get real pour over coffee (not instant!!) with breakfast every morning. We highly recommend to anyone traveling with or without children!

Great location and friendly staff. The room and communal areas were clean and modern and the toys for the kids were a nice touch. My 2 year old also loved the fish/turtle in the pond outside! The breakfast was also delicious! We will definitely come back 😊

Outstanding stay
Our stay at Hotel Karuna was outstanding. The hotel is very comfortable, clean, well maintained. The rooms are spacious and clean and the bathroom are clean and functional. The hotel is a stone throw away from the main strip at Lakeside but has the benefit of being tucked away and quiet. There is a small courtyard/garden where you can sit and have a coffee/tea. The breakfast and coffee are delicious. The staff is outstanding. They were caring and helped us find what we needed. We would definitely stay there again whether to spend some time in Pokhara or as a base to trek in the Himalayas.

Lovely hotel
I visited Hotel Karuna with my partner as part of a trip around Nepal. The hotel is lovely and perfectly situated for Lakeside's main shopping road with plenty of bars and restaurants. The staff are all very accommodating and breakfast is spot on; lots of choice and good fresh coffee. We even took advantage of the laundry facilities and got our clothes returned to us the same day. My only negative point would be that noise travels easily within the hotel and oftentimes guests socialising in the lobby would disturb our sleep.
