Lovely guest house at a fantastic location. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The ropftop is a wonderful place where you can enjoy tea or drinks in the evenings or your breakfast in the mornings. One can even listen prayers and chanys from the next doot Golden Temple. What a great place. Loved it.

What a great place to stay! This hotel is set in an old style building that has been renovated beautifully. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean and maintained to a high standard.

Really a good place, the location is pretty well, just 2 mins walking to the convenient store and the Durbar Square of Patan . People around this area are not like the business center, you can see local people more than tourism and have more place to relax.( will not be bother by sales ) The service in Hira is... More

Recent reviewers have extolled some virtues of Hira Guest House: charming staff, great location, large rooms, terrace overlooking the Golden Temple, sufficient hot water, social consciousness, historical ambience. The staff in particular deserve mention for their commitment to hospitality, cheerful helpfulness, and resourcefulness. But after six months living in Nepal and being poked by pieces of straw coming through the... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is great for walking around Patan. The 200 year old building has been done up brilliantly, retaining lots of character and being comfortable too. Rooms are big, but ceilings are low. Electricity goes off quite a bit in nepal, but...

My son and I stayed at this very typical guest house. The location is close to the square - less than a ten minute walk. The room was large and well furnished. The rooftop seating was very nice and relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The staff was accommodating and anticipated our requirements. "Mind your head".

The feeling of staying in a 200 years old traditional Newari house is unique! Right in the middle of Patan, and right next to the Golden Temple. But the best thing was the great staff - Aman, Esther and everyone there were so nice, they helped us in anything we needed, becoming our good friends after our stay. And the... More

Aman and Kim were awesome...thanks for making our trip to Nepal so much better! From the minute we got picked up at the airport we felt very welcomed...I didn't have the chance to get any Nepalese currency because of our late arrival but Aman lent me some money so we could eat at a nearby restaurant! Super cool. Awesome view... More

I loved Hira Guest House, a 200-year-old traditional Newari house, transformed into a simple and beautiful guest-house. My room was a deluxe room. The widows looked out to two different small courtyards with elegant traditional woodcarving around the window-frames. The ceilings are very low, maybe only 6 feet, and you have to be careful not to bang your head on... More
