Vajra Guest House & Restaurant
Ranked #14 of 61 Bhaktapur B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 25, 2012

This hotel is in a perfect location to explore the different squares of Bhaktapur. The bed was the most comfortable one that we slept in during our trip to Nepal. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the outdoor atmosphere lovely. I found the reception to be a little strange - at first I was even unsure if they had a room for us or not - but it improved. Besides that, everything was great.

Great location, friendly staff, well-furnished rooms with solar back-up lights for when the power goes out in the whole city. Bhaktapur is a lovely alternative to Kathmandu if you want a more peaceful experience. It's closer to the international airport than Kathmandu, so it makes a good place to start or end your Nepal journey. The Vajra offers a good restaurant, a lovely garden, and an ideal location in a wonderful World Heritage site.

It's true what the other reviews say, the hotel is extremely close to Durbar square and you can easily walk to anywhere you'd want to go within the city. The hotel itself is fine, clean and tidy, but we didn't find the staff as friendly as other people. Maybe they were just busy. It can still be quite a noisy area so I would suggest a courtyard room for the quietest place to be. You can easily change money at the front desk and the rates aren't anything to worry about!

This was our last night in Nepal-what a great choice! Wonderful location-right near the square, very comfortable and very helpful staff. They gave us tea on arrival, and showed us how the water worked in the room, also warned us of the blackouts to come but the room has two solar powered lights, which was so very helpful. I

would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We were 9 fridends to spend a happy and incredible night in Vajra, that's the best hotel in Nepal we ve never been, this was the perfect place to stay with helpful staff and super profession manager, inexpensive and comfortable, really clean bath room with great hot water, nice size room, Beautiful room with fantastic view. There is a fantastic view on the roof as well, you could have a breakfast with a incredible sunrise view on the roof, I would definitely highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The rates are very good too compare to the other hotels in Bhaktapur, Location ideal with easy walk to Bhaktapur squre. Would definately stay here again.
