“Authentic experience and great intro in Nepal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay with Sarita and her family. She made us feel really at home after our very long journey from Scotland. The room was clean but basic. Dinner is taken sitting on the floor in the family kitchen. Sarita is full of really useful advice about all the local attractions and will help you get there on the local buses. Great all round place to stay! Sarita gives you a blessing (tika) for a safe onwards journey when you leave.

I spent a night at Sanu's house a few days ago during my trip to Nepal and it has been the best choice ever! The room was basic, clean, cosy and furnished with a lovely nepali style bed. The family is adorable and takes great care of their guests. They also provide dinner and lunch, which are amazing: home made traditional food and nepali tea! Everything was delicious. Also breakfast is great, especially the home made crêpes with jam or honey, the perfect start for the day!
I also enjoyed meeting the other guests and share stories about the country, I felt like at home!
Thank you so much for making my stay with you so nice!!

Close to lively Gwarko Junction Sanu's House is a place of peace. Sarita and her family gave us all warmharted comfort that we needed on our stay. The rooms are nice and clean, the atmosphere calm and friedly. The included brakefast and available dinner are very delicious. Of course the bathroom is abstemious but clean as well. We will come back, any time.

Room Tip: Room no. 13 is offside the mainroad, bright and huge.

We stayed with Sarita and her family several times on our 2 months trip to Nepal. We were allways welcomed with smiles and waved good bey with blessings. We stayed in several rooms. Sometimes with private bathroom and sometimes with shared. Both were always clean. It is great to stay here. You can walk to patansquare or take a shared tuktuk for a few rupees.The buses leave 100 metres from here home. You can take buses along the ringroad to the busstation or the busstop to Pokhara. Direct bus to Bhaktapur and other surrounded villages. Straight to boudhnath and other sights in Kathmandu. So if you want to stay in a friendly place with good transportation nearby this is your choice. Also the breakfasts and dinners are nice. You easily meet up with other travelers. Mostly there are also people stayingnwho work in ktm or patan.

Room Tip: The back rooms are a bit quiter in daytime. At night it is quiet in ktm.

This guesthouse is in Patan but still fairly close to all sights and easy to reach by tuktuk or bus (even by foot). This means you don't have all the hassle which you get in Thamel - which is great!
Sarita cooks great food every night and everyone then eats together in the kitchen (of course you may also eat out if you like..). The rooms are basic though nice and clean! The shared bathroom was also okay. Sarita and her family were very friendly and helpful. Arriving totally soaked from the rain we were welcomed with a huge smile and towels. Also they always showed us the best way around and even brought us to the bus station. We can definitely recommend this place as it really is great value for money!

We could not be more grateful for Sarita and her family's gracious hospitality during our time in Patan. My boyfriend had to have surgery on his foot while in Nepal and Sarita went out of her way to accomodate our needs. When I forgot my necklace, Sarita kept it safe until I came back for it. Finally when we were leaving, she went out and hailed us a taxi. In addition to her big smiles, the great food, and charming atmosphere, Sarita and her family goes above and beyond, making their guests feel comfortable.

The place is a bit far but with Sarita's suggestions we went to many places without any problems. The room is clean and impressive with the nepalese style bed. the bathroom s quite average in nepal although it can be better. i would say the highlight was the breakfast when Sarita cooked for us and had guests gather around the kitchen.

Very warm and friendly. :)
