Traveling in Nepal with our young teenager, this was a lovely, wonderfully interesting place to stay near the temple square. Yes- low ceilings, yes- no luxurious baths (or exercise rooms or casino or Infinity edge pool.... you can get that stuff anywhere (even Kathmandu if you want)... that was much of the charm. If you don't get that, then don't... More

Gorgeous hotel with history. Long history! If you are looking for 5 star facilities. This is not the place for you. If you want a place that makes you feel at home, where you feel special, where you can rest in beautiful rooms and surroundings, a place rich in story, then stay at Newa Chen. It is also a stone's...

Had to ship out of Thamel in Kathmandu to find some peace. A nice little Unesco restored Newari house/hotel (well, B&B with breakfast that varies daily). Just off Durbar. Run by very friendly family. Hot water bottles delivered nightly, very clean. Static computer on landing for communal use. 24hr hot water. Wifi. How tall are you? Because at 5'9" I... More

I usually prefer boutique hotels and family owned cozy guest house. Last year I have been in Patan in another cozy newari house, but this one is definitely at higher standards (thanks to UNESCO capital invested in). The deluxe triple room is the best choice or you cold go in the cheaper double bed with outside private bathroom. The garden... More

We showed up unannounced after our original booking turned out to be closed, and they could not have been nicer. The hotel itself is a wonderful restoration of a traditional Newari house, and well located a short walk from Patan's Durbar square. Everything was very clean and there is a nice shady reading nook in the courtyard with a long... More

Newa Chen is very traditional Newari guesthouse. That's what I loved about it! That being said, if you are averse to sleeping on a mattress on the floor, sitting on a low stool or the floor, or taking your shoes off while in your room, Newa Chen may not be for you. Each room is unique and has unique art... More

This was my second time staying in Newa Chen, the first was 6 years ago. The house is beautiful, with nicely decorated rooms and a lovely courtyard where birds fly around in the morning during breakfast. Breakfast is different every day, but is always really nice. The family and staff are extremely nice and welcoming. I stayed here a few... More

We stayed for two nights in the charming and beautifully restored Newa Chen recently. No need to say that the doors and ceilings are low, we knew that before booking. It's all part of the charm of the experience! Our room was lovely, with wall niches containing small statues and other artefacts, almost like a living museum. The staff and... More
