We stayed at the Fulbari for a little over a week in January 2015. It was a totally positive experience. The hotel is fabulous! And it has a TON of character. We got a room on the top floor, directly facing the mountain. It was unbelievable! The grounds are beautifully landscaped and we spent quite a bit of time walking around and enjoying the scenic beauty. It's also very quiet there, one of the few serene places in Pokhara. It was like being on a retreat.
The hotel staff were amazing. Everyone was friendly, warm and welcoming. The food was great and reasonably priced. The restaurant staff went out of their way to accommodate us on more than one occasion, especially Dhana, one of the restaurant managers. They have a nice buffet for breakfast (included)and an impressive dinner buffet as well. Service? Outstanding!
I could have stayed at a hundred hotels in the USA and I'm pretty sure I would not have had this great of an experience. I had read some of the other reviews before our trip, some of which commented on intermittent wifi availability, cab rides to town, etc. All I can say is...you don't go to the Fulbari for the wifi. During our stay in Pokhara, we spent quite of bit of time in town. We went to the lake, the cave, did some shopping, and hiked up to the World Peace Stupa. All of this was great, but still -- the best part of our vacation was the Fulbari.
The bottom line? If we ever go back to Pokhara, I would stay nowhere else.
