Mr. Nirakar Regmi used to travel to different places in the country as a part of his job as a police officer. During his travels, he had to stay in different hotels, often for longer periods. A cheerful and a person who loves to interact with people, he never found a hotel where he could go and talk to the owners and feel like home. When he retired after 18 years of service he was looking to do something to keep himself engaged. He discussed this idea of opening a family run hotel with wife Mrs. Mana Regmi, a social worker and secretary at Lions Club. In 2017, they turned their family property into a hotel in Lainchaur, Kathmandu and named it as “Hotel Tranquil”.
Unlike other accomodation in Kathmandu, Hotel Tranquil sits in a peaceful environment of Hanuman Galli, Lainchaur, only a few minutes away from the main road. Thamel, the busiest touristic location in Kathmandu can be reached in 10 minutes. Indian Embassy, British Embassy, American Embassy and French Embassy, all lie within a radius of 1 Km (5-10 minutes walk) from the hotel.
Rooms are divided into three categories; Economy, Standard and Deluxe.
The economy rooms have fan, television.
The standard rooms have Air Conditioner, Television.
The deluxe rooms have Air Conditioner, Television,Fridge and a Mini bar.
Nepali Khana Set, (rice, lentils, vegetables, meat, pickle & curd) and Momos (Dumplings in Nepali way) are a hit among customers from the menu. The idea behind it according to Mrs. Regmi, who cooks these food herself, is to give a local & homely taste to the guests. The guest can use the Kitchen to cook their own food if they are staying for a longer term.
The atmosphere at Hotel Tranquil is free from disturbance with peaceful environment and calm nature. From the rooftop one can treat their eyes with magnificent view of the monkey temple in the evening, and refreshing views of Central Nepal Himalayan Range (if the weather is clean) in the morning. Guests can even come down to the lobby to relax, drink and for a beautiful conversation.
