This is more like „night in the museum” than a hotel stay! Place is simply amazing and authentic. But the best feature is it’s Hosts, friendly, dedicated and charming people who make you feel at home. Oh, not to mention that you are in the middle of historical Bakthapur center and can experience morning pujas right out of your doors.

I had two stays at PGH, either side of an overnight hike to Namobuddha. It’s housed in a very old building, renovated and converted by the family. Location-wise, it couldn’t be better. The square is a wonderful place to people watch, and is only a few minutes’ walk to Durbar Square. My room was comfortable, although I’m not a fan of small bathrooms with a shower which gets everything wet! I had a couple of issues, but these were dealt with quickly and without a fuss, so this wasn’t a problem for me. Breakfasts were very good - something different served up each morning. Similarly, evening meals in the restaurant were excellent. Better quality than anywhere else I found. One of the owners is Malaysian, and cooks a mean laksa, which was an unexpected treat. The only things I could fault were down to the building’s age - crazy small door thresholds, unusual stairs where you sometimes had to limbo to get up/down, and the noise from the street outside. The windows and shutters kept out the rain and light, but not the noise. And the street was noisy pretty much all night (2-3.30am was quiet!) All part of the charm!

To be clear we didn't stay here but rather ducked in for a coffee to warm up on a cold rainy day, and were welcomed and taken care of. The shop owner brought out a portable heater to keep by our table which was very kind. From the cafe we could peek at the hotel interior which has a lot of history and is very beautiful. The location is literally right on the square, so very convenient.

Staying at the Peacock Guest, housed in a meticulously restored 700-year-old building on one of the ancient squares of Bhaktapur, was for us, seasoned travelers, a genuinely peak experience. We had a huge, luxuriously appointed room with piping hot water. Our host, Arunodaya, and his family and staff could not have been more gracious or accommodating. In addition, the Peacock is home to the best restaurant in town where we enjoyed several exceptionally savory and delicious lunches and dinners. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was ample, varied and imaginative. Arunodaya is extremely well educated, well traveled and an excellent conversationalist who was a wealth of information regarding Nepalese culture. He is also a cyclist and a runner, a man after my husband's own heart with whom he bonded. On site is a wood carving studio where there are many true masterpieces available for purchase, many of them designed by Arunodaya who is the true Renaissance man. Just visiting the studio was like going to a museum. We were fortunate to visit Bhaktapur for the winter harvest festival of Maghe Sankranti which went on for several days motivating us to extend what was a planned 2 day stay into 10. It is with the greatest enthusiasm that I heartily recommend a stay at the Peacock Guest House in the facinating city of Bhaktapur. Once settled in, I can assure you that you will find reasons to extend your stay. Arunodaya, thank you so much for making our stay so memorable. It was such a pleasure getting to know you.

We spent two night in this charming and beautiful place. The guest house is in a century old building in one of the main ancient squares. Inside there is a traditional wood workshop and plenty of refined object and decorations. The host is very kind and friendly, with interesting points. The room was clean and with a nice atmosphere. The breakfast included is generous and well prepared, and, cherry on cake, Illy Italian coffe for who knows about coffe. In the guest house is also possible to have a dinner in the beautiful repaired courtyard. Absolutely recommended ***** Pablo and Cirkeline

This family run hotel is ideally located at the centre of Bhaktapur. The place is clean and well run with very attentive and helpful staff. The rooms are large enough but taller people will find the room heights a bit challenging; but that is the charm of Nepali houses. The food in the restaurant is also very good with some variations on traditional nepali food with other asian twists and tastes. I will certainly come back to this very nice hotel!

After spending two weeks working in rural villages in the far west of Nepal it was an absolute delight to return to the city and spend two nights at The Peacock Guesthouse. My room was spacious and beautifully and simply decorated, with lots of thoughtful extras like room slippers, a water jug and an electric blanket. The bathroom was well designed with an great shower and plenty of hot water. Everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast, which included Bhaktapur curd and fresh fruit, was delicious as was the Asian fusion food in the restaurant. The family who run the hotel and their staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble and I enjoyed learning about family life in the city from them. Thank you.
