I was in this great hotel in last April, one day before the earthquake, I loved it! Today, December 2015, I wanted to book a room but the hotel is closed....due to the earthquake, of course! I hope they will come back in activity....

Please, please, please visit the Hira Guest House. It's charming, comfortable and has a lovely setting...next to the Golden Temple. But it is much, much more. When the earthquake struck these selfless young people (former orphans) who work there helped me and my young family reach safety and then walked with us to the highway for a taxi. We'll always...

This guest house is situated very central in Patan, and I hope it didn't suffer damage during the recent earthquake. Very nicely decorated rooms, beautiful terrace to eat breakfast in the morning or having a beer/coffee/chai in the evening. Staff couldn't be more helpful. It's a treat! But if your longer than 175 cm you'll have trouble, the roofs are...

I would highly recommend Hira to anyone staying in Patan. Some of the pros are: great location, spacious clean room, nice rooftop view, and very helpful staff. The one con: very low ceilings! I didn't personally have any problems with the low ceilings, but my husband who is 6 ft tall, had to hunch over most of the time to...

I chose the Hira guest house for the atmosphere of its old rooms and building, the helpfulness and kindness of the staff, the sight from the roof top terrasse over the Golden Temple surrounded by "normal" houses and the families living there and the hot water available all day - and would do so again. I felt very much at...

The guest house is located right at the center of Patan (Lalitpur). Just 5mins walk to Patan durbar square, and there are shops and restaurants close by! The building itself not to mention is just a beauty! it is a 200 years old building that you can smell the history once you got into the building; they keep the brick...

This is an old Newari house in the middle of Patan. The rooms are spacious but very dark (and cold) and only for very small people. Even with my only 1,65 height it was challenging not to hit the head everytime. The staff wasn't welcoming at all, was totally disappointed, cause due to the reviews I expected something completely different....

Even if it is above my usual budget I spent a night at Hira Guest House. It's a old Newar house renewed so the feel is really great. The staff is very friendly and helpful (as a backpacker I'm not used to being helped carrying my lugage). Rooftop terrace is wonderful with views to the Golden Temple just a few...

Comfortable and clean rooms, beautiful roof terrace just next to the Golden Temple. 200 year old building has very low ceilings and beams, a knock on the head is most common for anyone taller than 1.7m. Very good experience, but disappointed with the transportation arrangement as we were informed of price changes only at the very last minute.
