We are situated very close to Durbar Square of Bhaktapur from where it's very easy to go any Squares & Places. We are near by Main squares but not close to heavy traffic roads so, it's a quiet & perfect place ...More for your stay. After seeing Kathmandu when you visit VGH, you will feel the difference! Less
