Shaligram Apartment Hotel – Located within a 2 minute walk to the venue in Jawalakhel. This hotel is quite budget friendly and sports a great view of the Ganesh and Langtang Himalayan ranges to the North.

Hotel Radisson – A 5-star hotel in Kathmandu, it features facilities like a health club, tranquility spa, business center and rooftop pool.

Dwarika’s Hotel – A 5-star hotel located near to the Airport that reflects the culture and history of Kathmandu and its heritage. In addition to the basic facilities, it has a library and a shop where you can buy souvenirs made in Nepal.

If you are coming to Kathmandu from outside the valley, and are looking for a place to stay;
