Kathmandu welcomes budget friendly Fairfield by Marriott Hotel

Fairfield Inn by Marriott KathmanduGlobal hotelier Marriott recently launched a low-cost Fairfield Inn in the Nepali capital city of Kathmandu. Marriott joined the likes of Radisson and Hyatt Regency with premises in the former backpacker and hippie favourite when the hotel welcomed its first guests.

The Fairfield Inn by Marriott Kathmandu is situated in the district of Thamel and is just 10 minutes on foot from the landmark Durbar Square and temples such as Seto Machhendranath. Although the 115-room hotel is aimed at travellers on a budget, it features rooms with all mod-cons and good guest amenities.

Guests opting to stay at the Kathmandu Fairfield Inn are provided with an ambient restaurant, a lobby bar and lounge, and a fitness centre equipped with state-of-the-art cardiovascular and muscle-building machines. Wireless internet is available throughout the hotel.

Guests rooms are designed for comfort and come with bonuses like super-soft bedding, marble-tiled bathrooms, 40-inch televisions and refrigerators. Room service is available 24/7 while most of the rooms are perfectly positioned for guests to enjoy views across this scintillating Asian city.

Commenting on the inauguration of the hotel, Asia Pacific vice-president Mike Fulkerson stated that Marriott was delighted to be opening its first Fairfield premises in Nepal. Although the Fairfield is the first in the Himalayan kingdom, Marriot operates another four in neighbouring India to the south.

There are two Fairfield Inns by Marriott in Bengaluru (Bangalore) and one in Lucknow. The final one is in the town of Belagavi and on the lower slopes of the Western Ghats mountain range. The opening of the Kathmandu establishment brings the global total of Fairfield Inns to way over the 800 mark.
