Best Food and Location in Durbar Square Bhaktaphur

Food, Location and Staff
The location of the hotel was ideal as it was inside of Durbar Square, right next to the Shiva Temple. The hotel cafe serves the best food in the whole of Durbar Square and the Staff are very friendly. Service is slow but that's only because the place is always full during meal time. Enjoy a glass of wine, beer or liquor while you wait for your food!

Not worth the money

It is really a guest house

Hard to count out
It is inside the Durbar but too close that view from my window is blocked by a temple. Noisy at night and the praying people ring the bells in early morning. My room with independent bath room is on 3rd floor, no lift, bring the luggage up and down and get through the exhaust of their kitchen. Hot water is actually warm and weak. In fact the area is small and plenty of choice nearby. Some of the staffs are very passion but the in charge is not nice. Could have better choice with similar price and few minutes walking distance.

Good location

Location, good food, friendly staff
Hotel locates inside of Durbar Square which requires entry ticket to enter. We booked 2 standard rooms, but got one room which bathroom locates outside of room. Room's walls are poorly sound insulated, can easily hear next room's conversation. To have a good sleep, ear plugs are recommended. Staff is friendly.

One little tip

location in the square, proximity to local eatery adjacent coffee shop, the historical building itself
I had a front room which is directly in front of a small temple that begun being used around 1am. Hindu worshipers starting ringing bells from 1am onwards until 7-8am. Every night this took place, and I was told that local older women whom typically don't sleep much, get up and start their practice which is ringing bells around the temple. Take good quality ear protection if you're a light sleeper.

Back in Time

location, value for money, staff
Shiva Guest House has the perfect location. It's actually inside the Durbar Square. The price is really affordable too considering their great location. The staff are really nice and accommodating. I asked them to arrange my travel from hotel to airport and they were able to do it with no hassle. Shiva Guest House has their own taxi service. No problem whatsoever with this guest house. I'd recommend it to friends.

Good location, surly staff

The guesthouse is beautiful and located in a great spot. The food was really good. That being said they rarely had the first thing we asked for from the menu.We were not able to eat lunch at the guesthouse during our stay because the entire dining room was reserved for a tour group who was NOT staying at the guesthouse. Tt was strange that their own guests were not allowed to eat there. The staff was surly and borderline rude would be the best way to describe them. They literally do not care if you are there or not. They aren't outright rude but don't expect a warm smile or even a hello. It can feel like you're just in the way. There was however, a young man who was very friendly. He was definitely the only member of the staff who even acknowledged our existence. We left him a pretty nice tip even though the hotel charges a 10% service charge, only to watch one of the older/ruder members of the staff discreetly put the tip in his own pocket. The rooms were pretty comfortable by Nepal standards, but it is LOUD. Don't expect to get a good nights rest. The staff was very loud and some of them stayed in a room right next to ours. After the kitchen closes at night and they finish cleaning they tramp up the stairs and talk very loudly. A group of locals camped outside of the guesthouse and proceeded to get drunk and loud. The good thing is the guesthouse locks the doors at 10 and the group moved on. It's no fault of the hotel but it is located right in the main square so locals are constantly walking by and talking loudly. At night dogs in the square bark and fight. There is also a functioning Hindu temple directly outside that rings a bell for a very long time in the morning. Obviously this is a cultural/religious activity but it will affect your sleep.This guesthouse is one of the first you will see and one of the best advertised. However there are plenty of other guesthouses that are located in quieter areas, have friendlier staffs and look just as beautiful.
