Bhaktapur is the perfect escape from the busy and rather bland streets of Kathmandu. Picking this place off a guide book, the website does this place no justice. Located in Dattatreya Square, the entrance is a bit underwhelming but inside is a small but very charming place. The rooms were very spacious (the size of 2x rooms in Kathmandu) and clean, and the only source of dissatisfaction is that the room could use more lighting/windows. This was not a big deal as we spent most of our time outside in the 'patio' overlooking the courtyard.
The owner, Arun, was an extremely pleasant person to deal with and did his best to casually make you feel like you're visiting an old friend. After travelling for over 4months, this was the first time we felt so 'at home'! It also helped that the food was great, despite just starting up the restaurant a few weeks before we arrived (the menus weren't even printed when we got there!). Their restaurant prices are extremely fair, and also very delicious! They make the momos from scratch when you order them!
Overall, great place to stay when visiting the city of Bhaktapur!
