Nepali travelling phrases – In the Hotel

In the tourist hotspots you usually will get around dealing with Hotel staff in English. But I always think that even if you can, it is a nice thing to try to at least communicate in Nepali. You might just get a smile out of your receptionist. And you never know if in the end in some lonely village on your trek, you end up really needing it.
