Located right within Patan, Traditional Homes Swotha is an excellent place to stay. As mentioned by others, it is located within walking distance to Patan Durbar Square. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us to arrange for a driver to bring us around Kathmandu, and extending our checkout time until we were ready to leave for the airport in the late evening. The room was spacious and clean, with hot water for shower (very important during winter). It would be nice if the room had a heater as well. Nevertheless, the bed had an electric blanket, which was extremely helpful for us who hail from sunny Singapore.

We were very happy staying in Traditional Homes. I had communicated with Punam on several occasions prior to our arrival and she was very efficient and quick to respond. All the staff were delightful and very friendly, as well as Punam the waiters in the Swotha Café were great and made a point of taking our order for breakfast the evening before we had to make an early departure. Our room was simple but delightful and comfortable, the shower room was small but there was masses of hot water. I think our rooms might have been the smallest and were several floors up, the staircase was quite steep and narrow which didn’t worry us but it might be good to check where your room will be if the stairs concern you. There was no headboard as there was a low shelf that ran along the back of the bed. We found that our suitcases fitted on the shelf giving us support when sitting in bed. The location of Traditional Homes is perfect, only a minutes walk away from the Durbar Square. Do get up early and have a wander when the fruit and vegetable market is on, it’s only there for a couple of hours and we’ll worth seeing. There are also a few other stalls too.

Rooms in a very old, refurbished house - clean, simple and wonderful staff who made our stay so special. Don’t expect upmarket and you will not be disappointed. We had the attic suite room which was quite a climb up narrow stairs but well worth it. Clean, purified water guaranteed by the staff. Good WiFi. Charming, tiny restaurant downstairs with excellent Thali. Also a restaurant next door, worth trying as more atmospheric. Best of all were the friendly staff. Sights of Patan a few minutes walk away.
