Sameer is the best Airbnb host hands down! Hospitable, patient, and always available, he possesses all the qualities you hope a host would have. He responded to my booking inquiry immediately and attended to every question I had. The most important thing Sameer did for us was inform us of beforehand of a fuel shortage in Nepal so we weren’t surprised by high transportation costs. We ended up being three hours late when we arrived and he waited up for us to welcome us to his property. The property itself is true to its word and the photos. There are six apartment spaces identically themed. When we arrived, there were issues with the initial property we booked so he upgraded us to a bigger accommodation, taking the initiative and responsibility in addressing the situation. The kitchen had everything you needed to make meals at home. If we were missing something, Sameer provided it. You can buy water, beer, soap, tea, and incense from Sameer. The rooms are very spacious. The main bedroom is bright and has comfortable, clean bedding. Lots of outlets too which was perfect for all my gadgets. There are a lot of shelving units. You really do feel like you’re at home when you stay here. The bathroom has unlimited hot water too! There are regional power outages all over Nepal so you must prepare for that but Sameer informed us of all the timeframes when electricity would be out. The location is not in the center of town but it’s only a 20-minute walk to Thamel and that’s pretty straight forward once you get your bearings. The area of Ranibari has next-to-no foreigners so you feel very immersed in Nepali daily life. On our first day, Sameer invited us to a local farmer’s market with some of his friends to introduce us to the real Kathmandu. We walked through back streets hearing stories from locals, which added to our understanding of the culture. He went above and beyond what is required of him as a host. On our last day with the fuel shortage still making transportation difficult, he called every taxi company around and then proceeded to walk us to the area where local buses run and waited with us until we found a more affordable option to take us to our next destination. He made sure we always felt safe and at ease. There wasn’t anything I didn’t feel comfortable asking of him because he was so generous with his time and knowledge. We were told the property is not 100% completed since he only began building it in January of 2015. It just opened to guests in August but to see how great it is now and how much more is going to be improved upon in the near future only makes me excited for Sameer. Sameer is a visionary and to help him achieve his dreams, I recommend every person visiting Kathmandu to stay at Nomad’s Apartments! You won’t regret it!
