“Perfect place to stay and amazing, welcoming hosts”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We booked into Krishna's House at the last minute and we couldn't have made a better choice. We planned to stay one night due to our short time in Nepal but we couldn't bring ourselves to leave and ended up spending a couple more nights there - would have happily stayed forever!!

We had a beautiful room, perfectly clean and comfortable. There was also toothpaste, soap and bottled water in the room- a few nice, welcome little touches!

The breakfast we had was cooked by Soneta, Ajaya's wife each morning and was delicious. Each evening Ajaya asked what time we would like breakfast the next day and when we came to the breakfast room, there was a brilliant breakfast waiting for us. We had a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, toast and honey, home-made very tasty omelette etc. It was wonderful and really set us up for the day.

The location of Krishna's house is also great. It is just a few minutes walk to several shops, eateries etc and a short walk to Bhaktapur Durbar Square.

The best part of our stay at Krishna's House was the hospitality. Ajaya's family really made us feel at home and they did everything to make us feel welcome and help us really experience the true Nepali culture. Ajaya is so knowledgeable and he happily shared his wisdom with us over a cup of tea. He gave us lots of brilliant advice on how to make the most of our short time in Nepal and thanks to him we managed to see and do so much. He also helped us arrange our trip from Bhaktapur to Dhulikel and he called ahead to ensure we got there safely and that things were organised for when we arrived.

A massive thanks goes to this amazing family for being so caring, welcoming, helpful and for really making our time there. We will definitely return to Krishna's house when back in Nepal.

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.
