this was our first stop on our trip around Nepal and it was a fantastic way to start, it set the tone for the rest of our trip. This place has so much character and feeling to it, it is hard to do it justice on here. The staff are very friendly and the little cafe area in reception is... More

We stayed in October and it was the perfect place to stay. Very close to other attractions, but far enough that it is peaceful. Breakfast is always amazing, and each day they make their own jam. The rooms were basic but great. Low ceilings (as are most places in Bhaktapur) but it offers authenticity of this area. If you need... More

This gem of a hotel, with it's wonderful hosts, was the highlight of our Nepal trip. Arun and Indira have done a great job restoring and maintaining this historic building with classy taste. Despite being 800 years old, the hotel is clean and has modern bathrooms. Do watch out near the doors as I have hit my head a couple... More

The guesthouse itself is a historic place and listed as a World Heritage Building of Bhaktapur. Attractions such as the Peacock window, Bhimsen Temple and Dattatraya Temple are just less than two minute walk from the guesthouse. The guesthouse run by a friendly and very fluent English speaking couple. The breakfast and coffee were great. During my stay, the taxi... More

This hotel is one of the most interesting I've ever stayed in. In the heart of the town, it offers rooms with decor that is extremely cultural and unique - rooms are clean too. The breakfast is fantastic, particularly the muffins. Service is exemplary. I'd highly recommend this place to others. Just be aware of the noisy street nearby. They... More

Located right in the middle of Bhaktapur old town, in front of the temple, this hotel is full of character. Our room was comfortable, but to access it we had to climb very steep, narrow steps - not easy with 2 big suitcases ;-) The hotel itself is small and cosy, with a very nice inner courtyard where they serve...

Of all the places we stayed during our trip in Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet, we liked this one the best for several reasons. The owners Arunodaya and Indra are fantastic. They are so proud of their building as they should be. Ask anything and they will give you a history lesson. Arun makes a wicked cup of coffee - again,... More
