In March our family (with two kids on 6 and 13 years) traveled around in Nepal for 4 weeks. Our first accommodation was two nights in Krishna House in Bhaktapur (behind the blue gate ). The family-room was fine, the power the nepali way and the hot water solar heated. What brings our stay at Krishna House to the top was Yjayas hospitality and guidance. He welcomed us to his home and told us a lot of information about the city and what to see. We thank him and his family for a very fine arrival and warm welcome to Nepal – and not to forget – a wonderful and overwhelming breakfast. Namaste with our best recommendations.

This was the first place I stayed in Nepal, and I loved it. Ajaya is the perfect host, and I immediately felt comfortable. Ajaya's wife made the best breakfast of my whole Nepal trip.
It was only a short walk from Bhaktapur city, and I always felt like I was going home after a days sight seeing.
The rooms are very clean and quiet at night, and a good choice before you go on to Kathmandu.

Last summer, my husband and I picked Krishna's House from picks on the internet. We were very happy with our luck to find Ajay and his wife's home-like guest house. A nice walk to downtown Bhaktapur, and away from the noise of the central cityl. Ajay is a encyclopedia of information about Nepal and is extremely helpful in making suggestions for places to visit around Bhaktapur.
We happened to arrive the day before Guy Jatra, which is a week long celebration of the family members who have passed in the previous year. All week, families dance down the streets of Bhaktapur carrying a handmade Cow or Guy, bearing the images of deceased and beloved family members. The costumes and dances celebrate life! Ajay was extremely helpful in telling us how to get to best places to see the fanfare.

Every morning Ajay's lovely wife would bring out a wonderful breakfast, introducing us to various Nepali items.

We will go again.. BTW, Ajay has a tour business, and so he can arrange tours and treks. He arranged one for us with his masterful guide, Ajit, to tour Helembu. We were so appreciative of his services.

Room Tip: the best room is the corner suite, which Ajay gave to us.

Lovely quite place with a beautiful garden and terrace. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast very good! The location is not far from the centre but far from the noise .
If you want to rest and relax that's the place to stay !!
Ajaya will show you all the nice place to visit and teach you about the nepali culture.In the house there's also a nice room full of books where you can read and enjoy your free time.
I miss Krishna house,beautiful place and beautiful people.

I had a very warm welcome and good advice on navigating through Bhaktapur by Ajaya. The breakfast was great and the location quiet compared to frantic Kathmandu. I recommend it greatly and hope to use it more often as a get away.

My first visit to Nepal was enriched by staying at Krishns's house for 5 nights. Take advantage of Ajayas wisdom and knowledge and ensure you book him for a walking tour of Bhaktapur. The rooms are clean and very comfortable ( take a torch for blackouts) and the food is fantastic. It was certainly a great introduction to the culture of this facinating country. I have stayed in many home stays and highly recomend this one for anyone who wants to stay in local,welcoming and homely accomadation. Ajaya's 4 day program was fantastic and I would recomend it as an introduction to the region and the culture.
