We stayed our first 2 nights in this Guesthouse. After luxery life a home we had to get used a bit. With our 2 year old boy we were freezing at night (poor isolation, no heating and 2c temperature outside). Warm water just a few hours per day (depends on electricity). But after a night adjusting we really appreciated this... More

The Sunny is so great. I've stayed there twice, once while leading a group pf 26 students, once just as a traveler, and both times were special. The staff there is terrific, the food is excellent, and while pretty much every place in Nepal will bend over backwards to take care of you, this place does it even more than... More

Our stay in this guest house was very nice. There were 20 people in my group, and the staff was kind and accommodating. The one tip I do have, however, is to try and get a room in building 1 or 2. Building 3 has much smaller rooms. The ones in 2 are large and beautiful. Great place.

We were three young people sharing a triple room in this hotel for three nights. - Very close to every thing in Bhaktapur. We had no reservation so we were lucky to find one available room when we arrived. - The room and the bathroom were clean when we checked-in. - This is the only one place everywhere we went... More

We have been two times at the Sunny Guesthouse already during a mountainbike tour through the Kathmandu valley. Over the years this place has improved the quality of its rooms without losing the friendly service and spot on location.

My wife and I spent a night at the Sunny Guest House and had a great time. We flew to Nepal without a very solid plan and asked the owner/manager to help us reserve flights and tours for the balance of our stay. He spent an hour on the telephone and made all our flight reservations to Chitwan and even... More

Great location right beside the Nytapola Pagoda and few steps away from the Durbar Square. Stayed here overnight, the room is clean although the toilet seems a bit old with stain in tiles. Includes breakfast which is good as well as other food served at the rooftoop restaurant. The hotel staff were very helpful in arranging my transportation going to... More

It would be a crime against tourism if you didn't visit Bhaktapur while you were in Nepal. Better still rather than do a day trip as most do then stay the night and savour a different atmosphere when the crowds have gone home. Sunny guest house isn't perfect , the rooms are a bit cramped for 2 sharing and it... More
