I traveled to Pokhara as a solo female tourist during COVID. The Dahlia Boutique Hotel felt extremely safe and supportive. Many mornings, the manager would sit with me and answer my questions about what I wanted to do for the day, drawing maps of the area and giving me tips, so I didn't have to hire a guide and felt safe doing a lot of daily activities on my own.
When I went on a guided trek to Australian camp for a few days, they kept my luggage safe and secure!
The hotel was of the highest hygiene standards, with everyone wearing masks and a hand-washing station outside the hotel. When I wanted to get a COVID test, the manager called 10+ places to ensure I could get the test and explained everything to the taxi driver to get me there.
The rooftop of this hotel is incredible. I spent many hours there catching up on work, enjoying the Himalayas view, or the moonlight in the evening. Oh, and the sunsets are perfect as well!
Highly recommend staying here! I definitely will again when I return to beautiful Pokhara.
