Milla Guesthouse is located on a quiet square in the historic town of Bhaktapur, a 5 minute walk from the World Heritage Site of Dattatraya Square. As a home-away-from home refuge, the guesthouse has been designed by Götz Hagüller, the architect of the Patan Museum and the Garden of Dreams in Kathmandu. Balancing modern and traditional architecture, it is built in brick with wooden ceilings, timber floors in the bedrooms and with terracotta tile-floors in the rest of the house. The furniture is made by local craftsmen and designed by the architect. The terracotta tiles are handmade after an traditional design. Opened in 2013 with only two rooms, the guesthouse now has four double rooms (two with balcony) with attached bathroom. Solar-voltaic electricity, solar hot-water, gas-room-heating, Wi-Fi connection throughout the guesthouse. Guests can enjoy a sitting/breakfast room with terrace and kitchen on the top floor.

We recently had the privilege of being almost the last guests to stay in the Guesthouse before Covid-19 disrupted everyone’s travel plans. This was our fourth visit – but the first in such uncertain circumstances. So one of the most important observations to make is about absence: of worry, of anxiety, of any problem that, for a traveller far from home, would become magnified. We could set out and return to the Guesthouse every day without any cares concerning our practical needs – everything just works – assured that if we did need help, it would be forthcoming. We spent days revisiting favourite places, inspecting post-earthquake developments, soaking up the artistic and architectural beauty of Bhaktapur. And always there is the special light in Millas Guesthouse, the stairways, the windows, the art . . . an utterly charming and comfortable place to stay.

Probably the best accommodation we had while we were staying in Nepal! Love all the details the architect put into the building, from the artworks to the keychain. The building itself is amazing! It’s like a nod to traditional building with modern twist. But probably the best part is the warm hospitality of Sanu, the housekeeper. She even made her own bread and jams for the breakfast!

My girl friend and I stayed in Milla’s guesthouse after our trip to Bhutan in Jan 2020. Comparing to Bhutan, Nepal is unbearably dirty, polluted and chaotic. But luckily, we decided to cancel our hotel reservation in Kathmandu and booked Milla’s guesthouse in Bhaktapur instead. It was such a great move that i would suggest all friends who will come to Nepal in the future that please get away from Kathmandu and come to Bhaktapur to stay instead. Kathmandu’s airport is actually in the middle of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur. And Bhaktapur is so much cleaner and less touristy than Kathmandu. Back to Milla’s guesthouse, as I mentioned earlier, we stayed here for 3 nights. it was such a pleasant surprise to find a piece of heaven in this chaotic and much polluted Kathmandu valley. It’s so clean and artfully designed, you can’t believe that you are in Nepal! Although the house next door is almost crumpled in the 2015 earthquake and it’s still desolate and not in living condition. But Milla’s house looks new and modern, it looks like it’s a house plucked from Germany or Switzerland and being put in the middle of old town Bhaktapur Nepal! It’s unbelievable and surreal. We took a taxi from Kathmandu airport to Bhaktapur late afternoon on a rainy day. It’s almost dark and our taxi driver could not find the guesthouse. Finally he decided to look for it on foot. I followed him and passed thru maze like small alleys, courtyard, made many twists and turns and we came to Milla’s house. The host (lacman) immediately followed us back to the taxi and helped us carry our luggage to the house. It was not a short walk with many turns, and I lost the sight of him in two seconds. I have to just feel my way around, shouted “Milla house” to anyone I saw on the way. Luckily all the neighbors seem to know it, they just pointed me to the right direction. The minute you stepped in to Milla’s house, and door closed behind, you feel like you have come to another world, a safe heaven, a nice, warm and welcoming home! Sanu is the hostess. She welcomed us with a warm hug and told us this is our home in Bhaktapur. It was dark and rainy outside, but we truly feel right at home. Sanu cooked us a delicious Nepalese dinner in an hour, and it was served upstairs in the nice rooftop dining room. An hour ago, we were driving on a bumpy road and walked thru dirty debris and water holes, and now we were sitting on a nice rooftop having a nice warm homemade dinner! It’s just incredible! Milla’s house has many unique features. It was designed by a German architect and who is also its business owner. The host couple Sanu and Lackman is the owner of the house. They treat their guests so well that you feel like you are being pampered as long as you are in the house. In the morning, the breakfast is also served at the rooftop dining room, it has a balcony looking out to the courtyard and other rooftops. Frankly speaking, the courtyard downstairs has a pile of debris that was left there by the earthquake five years ago. The houses on both sides of Milla was falling down and nobody’s live there. looking out from the balcony, you will see a heavily polluted Kathmandu valley. On a sunny day, you can hardly see the mountains nearby. but at least, you are in this super clean house, like an oasis in a desert. I highly recommend Milla’s guesthouse if you ever in Bhaktapur.

Dear Tracy, thank you so much for your extensive and wonderful review. Coming from Bhutan we understand the difference to Kathmandu is enormous. We have been to Bhutan often since my husband, Goetz Hagmueller, also the architect of Milla Guesthouse, has designed and established the Tower of Trongsa Museum there. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you back some day. Sanu and the guesthouse team are sending their warm greetings.

I would like to thank you most warmly for your very kind hospitality extended to me during my stay. This is my second time coming here with my wife, and is one of my favorite places. So nice, It's comfortable like at home. Location of Milla guesthouse is near Dattatreya temple. Even so, around of the guesthouse is open area and silent. Exterior of the house is artictical, room is well-furnished with nice indirect lighting. And fantastic dinner & breakfast with cordial hospitality. I am looking forward to visiting Milla guesthouse once again.

I stayed two nights at Milla Guesthouse and absolutely loved it. It is a hidden gem, in a quiet courtyard but very close to the Dattatreya temple and square as well as a number of restaurants. The place is clean, very comfortable, cosy and well designed. I spent a lot of time admiring the beautiful interiors in the room as well as in the rooftop kitchen/living area. The view from the rooftop terrace is great. Staff are attentive, friendly and communication before the stay was fast and easy. This place is perfect for spending a few days (or longer) in Bhaktapur - even if you live in nearby Patan (as I do). You can get a better feel of the city by actually staying in Bhaktapur over night. Bhaktapur has retained its charm even after the 2015 earthquakes and is well worth exploring for longer than a day trip. But even if you just want to get away from busy Kathmandu for a few days, Milla guest house is perfect for relaxing, reading and getting some quiet downtime away from hectic traffic. It feels more like a home than a hotel but doesn't fail to provide assistance, tips and information if needed. I fully recommend Milla Guesthouse and will certainly visit again.
