Wonderful Shiva Guest House
Waking up to the temple bells; great value and tasty food; friendly staff.
My second visit to Shiva - first in 2012 - and I had to come back. Nothing tops waking up gently to the sounds of temple bells and devotees as the day dawns and breakfast is amongst the best ever, anywhere. I love the central location in the most beautiful part of Bhaktapur and the calm, friendly cafe space. The rooms here are clean and comfy and homely with lovely views. The shared bathrooms are always kept nice and clean. The staff, from cleaners to managers, are all smiling, friendly and helpful. The kitchen is always full of delicious cooking aromas and they will even make things extra spicy if asked :-) Can't wait to come back again one day! Thanks Shiva Guesthouse from Bee and John.

Good location, good choice
friendly staff, location
I spent the last month at Shiva Guesthouse in Bhaktapur while doing a special project, and take pleasure to recommend it. Shiva GH is located on the eastern side of Durbar Square, so the location is unbeatable. The staff were always friendly and hospitable. I had a room with shared bath, but they have ensuite rooms too. The housekeepers did a good job. When you come to Nepal, plan a couple of days (at least) in Bhaktapur. In the early morning (6-9) and late evening (4-7) the streets are taken over by farmers and small vendors, as residents do their daily shopping. During the day they are gone. If you only see Bhaktapur by taking a bus trip from Kathmandu, you will entirely miss the magic of this city and miss on its traditions. If you are on a budget and looking for friendly, clean, and safe accommodations, Shiva GH will not disappoint.

Great value and location.
Value, location and staff.
I stayed here for a total of four nights. Free WiFi and good hot showers. The room I had was big and bright with an amazing view out over Durbar Square. The bed was a bit hard but that's fairly normal for Nepal. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The food, though limited in choice, because of a fuel shortage was very tasty and well prepared. I would definitely stay here again.

Do not stat in this hotel
This hotel is located in an area designated tourist area which means every tourist must pay an entrance fee of usd 15. And when I asked for cancellation due to deliberate non disclosure of fees the hotel staff refused to cancel the booking. They are callous and u proffessional in their work making mistakes after mistake with simple job like ordering breafast so cheap that even would try to maximizer the bill. at night you can't sleep it's bells gongs cymbals drums of all sorts as the temple is in front and at 6 am the large bell gets rung. People talk loudly in the square

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!
