I stayed in this studio for the last 8 days of my trip just this past April 2016. I loved the area where the apartment is located, very authentic, full of stores, shopping and close to attractions. The neighbors were friendly, everyone in the shops were great at answering questions, like helping to fill your cell phone, or finding food items. Rabi and his family were excellent. I felt very safe and cared about, they offered to show me around, and even made me breakfast! If you want the experience of living on your own, but having a safe gated community full of family members, and live slightly off the beaten path but within walking distance of Thamel, then I would stay here. I liked it so much I will stay here again in the future.
