Great place to stay with a perfect central location. The family that runs the guest house was very welcoming and helpful. I definitely recommend staying here if your travels take you through Bhaktapur.

Pro: location is excellent, couldn't be better. Room, a double in Pagoda was clean, old, cold and with antiquated electrical outlets. On the first night, because of the usual elec power fall-out, we had a rather old gas heater and had to leave the window or door open(!!) because it was 'dangerous'. Not very comforting. Later we got hot water... More

It's always the people that really make your stay. The owners at Pagoda are friendly, engaging and helpful. The guest house itself is well positioned, right next to the prettiest square, Taumadhi, in Bhaktapur, but set back just enough to feel like it's not on the main thoroughfare or tourist routes. Rooms are comfortable, clean and well looked after, and... More

Bhaktapur is a great alternative to the madness of Kathmandu and we stayed at the Pagoda Guest House at the beginning and end of our trip to Nepal. It's a modest establishment (you're in Nepal, after all) but clean, well located and well run. Best of all, Ravi and Sharmila are gracious and friendly hosts who will make you feel... More

The Guest House is very well located, has a lovely view, and the owner was friendly and chatted with us as we ate dinner. He talked about his travels to the States and how often he visits his sons who live there and how next time he intends to stay at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. I was impressed... More

We stayed for 9 nights in early November 2011. An interesting historic city well worth a lengthy visit. The Guest House is well situated - it was clean, comfortable, free WiFi, and great value for money. We ate the vast majority of our meals at the Guest House's rooftop restaurant and were never disappointed. The staff were terrific. The owners... More

This is without a doubt one of the best places to stay in Bhaktapur. You get affordable price and great rooms fully equipped also great terrace views over Bhaktapur's pagoda temple called Nyatapola Temple, the tallest pagoda in the world. Amazing and incredible views. Staff are very friendly indeed. Rooms and toilets are very clean. Great location

Pagoda Guest House is a perfect option to visit the fantastic Bhaktapur. Good rooms, great staff and the best location. The restaurant is not the best in the town, but good enough. The owner and his family can arrange some things for you on the trip and Bhaktapur is the prettiest town in the Khatmandu valley. Don´t forget to try... More

We stayed here for one night on our 15 night tour of Nepal and Bhutan. Had we seen the room before our driver and guide disappeared, we wouldn't have stayed. As others have stated, the location is excellent - seconds away from a rich array of amazing tourist attractions and some wonderful shopping opportunities and there is free wifi. None... More

This hotel was a breath of fresh air. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was superb overlooking the Taumadhi square and the hub of Phaktapur life in the early mornings. The owner was a great host and the most helpful person we met in our travels in Nepal. He couldn't do enough to help and even when... More
