Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
good clean room friendly staff in a homely atmosphere - more like a B&B than a hotel noisy construction next door filthy large sewage pond across the road makes whole area stink

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very nice but a bit out of the way...
The stay was great aside from a bit out of the way and few taxi's or people where it was.The family that owns it are tremendously service oriented and will bend over backwards to help. The b-fast is decent too!

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Friendly and welcoming.
Shakya House is in walking distance......10 minutes at most from Durbar Square. The walk itself is very interesting as it is the very old area of Patan and every moment there are amazing sights to see. It is also only 10/15 minute from a large supermarket that has everything you my need. It is well worth the stay as the owner and the staff are very welcoming and will do anything to help. As the sign says... come as a guest and leave as a friend.

Very clean, pretty and welcoming hotel
I spent a lovely two nights at Shakya House. All of the staff were very friendly, especially the owner. I stayed in the Green Tara room (twin) - the mattresses were very comfortable, the room was very clean and had some lovely furnishings. The bathroom is clean and has a very hot shower. There is a pleasant self-service breakfast room with fruit, breads, eggs,cereals, tea and coffee. At the front, there is a lovely, peaceful garden. The location is 10 minutes' walk to Durbar Square which means it is nice and quiet at night too. I would most definitely return to Shakya House!
