I stayed there just one night. The hotel is located 2 minutes away from the center of Bhaktapur which is great. You can be near the sights of interest but in a quiet street. Room was decently spacious and I got a cheap price. It was clean. Bathroom was tiny and on the balcony. The owner was a lovely man,...

I stayed in this guesthouse about a year and a half ago in one of the small single rooms but this time round due to the sad lack of tourists after the earthquake plus the fact that Nava(the owner)'s family have moved in to the hotel because their house was completely destroyed, I had a twin room this time around....

I stayed here in 2014 and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bhaktapur. Location location location! Great hospitality and real value for your dollar. What a sweet place this is, right in the centre of the old town. Nava, the hotel owner, is attentive and conscious of his guests needs. You will feel at home right from the first meeting. My...

I stayed here for 2 to 3 nights for my onward t trek to ebc. Located in the very small lanes of kathmandu. Rooms are fine with basic facilities like ac. 1 restaurant is available which serves variety of foods. Overall not a bad choice for medium budget. Note that rooms have interesting names.

I needed a place to stay for one night in Bhaktapur during March. It seems Bhaktapur is generally more expensive compared to other places in Nepal, so I opted for a single room with shared bathroom facilities at this guesthouse. The room was tiny with a mattress on the floor which pretty much took up most of the room. Now,...

The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the main gate and from the main square. The owner was most helpful in telling us where places were and we were able to find our way around from the hotel very easily. This is an economy hotel and so the facilities are limited although the wifi speed was great and...

Ideally located near Potter's Square in the middle of the historic district, and very modestly priced, this clean hotel (or guest house) provides en suite bathrooms, a savvy and friendly owner eager to help. The owner/manager speaks English. What I really liked is that he seems genuinely concerned about the well-being and experience of his customers. Remarkably, he himself served...

We booked online expecting to get cheaper rate but in fact paid much more expensive rather than if we walked in. It's located inside Bhaktapur Durbar Square so we have to pay NPR 1500 per person to reach it. Facilities were poor despite the owner was quite nice. Hot shower didnt work at all.

What a very special time I had at this lovely guesthouse! Great location, great price, the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever met.

I had stayed one night in a cozy little room in the Ecotel Guest House, before I went volunteering in Sipadol. The owner was very helpful, when I asked him about the way to that place. He phoned around and really took care about my concern. In addition, the breakfast was delicious! The location in the pottery square is fantastic,...
