dirty bathroom. no hot water”
water runs so slow and no hot at all. standard room means no bathroom attach. breakfast serve very late but it's nice. perfect bacon and milk tea. location is good. you need to pay 15$ for entrance before you could check in

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback . well every tourist need to pay the entrance fee to enter world heritage area. and your fee is 60% goes to community school and college , where students can get quality education on less price. As you have booked the budget room so the service is basic accordingly. And we are very sorry for the hot water issue.

Overall pleasant stay”
I had a nice clean room over-looking the Square. Felt very homely and spiritual to be across the temple and hear the bells in the morning. This room had shared bathroom, which didn't seem that great to me. Didn't try the shower here and waited til my next stop for that. Staff seemed friendly though I didn't ask for much. Also You can't pay for the room thru Agoda. The payment gets collected at the hotel so be aware to carry the extra cash.

Great Spot on Durbar Square, Bhaktapur”
Bhaktapur is a good place to stay if you don't need the hustle of Kathmandu and want to be close to the local way of life. And Shiva Guest House is right there on Durbar square among the temples and King Curd shops. Food at the restaurant is one of the better options in Bhaktapur as well. Rooms are basic but comfortable enough. Staff are friendly and helpful. Ask for a room on the front if you really want to wake up to a view of the square and the sound of temple bells in the morning.

Amazing location”
Everything was good. Shared bathrooms are ok, but the toilet being combined with the shower was kinda weird. Other than that, great. Good food.

Dear Ian Thank you for your feedback and enjoyed our service . Due to the limited area the bathroom is small now we are on the process of making it some bigger.

Best Value & Customer Service”
I'm never disappointed! This is the best place (with the best value) that I've found in the Kathmandu Valley. It is truly "my home away from home."

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.
