Even if it is above my usual budget I spent a night at Hira Guest House. It's a old Newar house renewed so the feel is really great. The staff is very friendly and helpful (as a backpacker I'm not used to being helped carrying my lugage). Rooftop terrace is wonderful with views to the Golden Temple just a few... More

Comfortable and clean rooms, beautiful roof terrace just next to the Golden Temple. 200 year old building has very low ceilings and beams, a knock on the head is most common for anyone taller than 1.7m. Very good experience, but disappointed with the transportation arrangement as we were informed of price changes only at the very last minute.

If you are after staying in a historic place full of character and history, this is it. We stayed for 2 nights, our first stop in Nepal. What a start. The staff are all friendly and can't do enough for you. Let them direct you to the good restaurants.Then the room, with low ceilings, rich wood work and history. The... More

This is a fine 200-year-old house, with friendly staff, and the rooms are spacious and have been nicely renovated, but after spending close to two weeks in Nepal, looking back this place was definitely overpriced. Breakfast was tasty enough, but a bit poor when considering the overall price. Even with earplugs I found the combination of outside street noise +... More

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.

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...
