Can recommend Shakya House Lalitpur Nepal for business or pleasure 🌺 Airport pickup, room service, friendly and warm staff and owner, good wifi connection. Nice patio and nooks and crannies. Sweet puppy too, a golden named Romeo that I enjoyed 😅

I stayed at Shakya House on the recommendation of colleagues who always stay here when in Kathmandu. The owner Saajan and his family are friendly and always ready to help. The place is very clean and tidy and my room has a lovely terrace. The breakfast is simple but all you need (unless you want Nepali breakfast, but then, I never asked for that so maybe they can fix that too!). I also had to change money at quite short notice twice and they were able to help me out. I also recommend staying in Patan area where the guesthouse is (rather than the main Kathmandu tourist area Thamel) as its quieter, cleaner, much less touristy and hectic and also has a beautiful and interesting historical square - Patan Durbar square.

Amazing rooms with super location, only a 10 minute walk to Durbar Square. Staff was very accommodating and lovely - changing breakfast time for early business and tending to our needs such as warm showers and money exchange as well as an amazing Golden Doggo named Romeo who helped to provide smiles!

Very nice place to stay. Clean rooms and very pleasant ambiance to be in. The owners are very friendly people. You feel welcome when you stay here. The accommodation is located within 5 minutes of walking from Patan Durban square. Certainly a place I will come back to when I visit Kathmandu again sometime.

Very clean and comfortable - a valuable retreat space amidst the busyness of Kathmandu. If you need something, the Shakya House family will always help you as much as they can. 5 star experience as far as meeting my needs as a resident is concerned. Very highly recommended.
