The owners are very nice and in the low season you can bargain a little bit for the price. The common bathroom is downstairs but it's new and clean. The room was also very clean and the location in right next to Durbar Square. Perfect!

I spent one month in Bhaktapur volunteering with an NGO that encourages children's education. During that month, I stayed at the Golden Gate Guest House. The location was great, as it was near Durbar Square, which is one of the most amazing architectural squares of the valley, as it highlights the ancient arts of Nepal, so it is always very... More

Location is great near Durbar Square but set back in a courtyard so less noisy. Rooms were fairly basic, bathrooms could be cleaner. Food here is good value about half the price of most restaurants nearby. Taxi to airport was reasonable price. Had 2 rooms one single with bathroom and then twin with bathroom both on 1st floor, the single... More

Good location, rooms with different prices, hot water. Staff is helpful with knowledge of Bhaktapur and the area. We made a guided tour with Decent to discover "secret" places of this beautiful town. We highly recommend this hotel.

Great helpful staff who assisted us in getting bus tickets and provided us with useful information on pricing. Durbar Square is right off one of the entrances which made this extremely convenient. Room was spacious and we also had a balcony.

Golden Gate Guest House is right at the centre of Durbar Square and within walking distance to all the sights and nice restaurants on the Square. There is fabulous views of snow-capped Himalayan mountains if you stay on the top floor and from the nice rooftop which overlooks the Durbar Square. The room is clean with a power bar of... More

Love Bhaktapur! Wake up early and go for a walk and see all the people walk from temple to temple to do the puja. We stayed at the Golden Gate guesthouse which was a great choice. Middle of the centre but still quiet because it is a bit off from the main street. Staff is very very friendly so that... More

I stayed almost 7 weeks in this guest house and the experience was actually perfect! The staff is simply the best, they make you feel like home, always so careful and helpful. The location is great, 1min by walk form Durbar Square but away enough from the noisy squares. The kitchen opens early in the morning until 21h or so... More

Golden Guesthouse is a great family-run guesthouse right in the heart of Bhaktapur. It is a few steps away from both Tamadi square and Durbar Square, but also protected from the noise of either squares, which is great because they can get quite noisy. There is a range of choice from simple rooms with or without toilet or balcony, to... More
