We and the Cosy Hotel had the misfortune for us to say our first night there immediately after leaving the superb Jaiwana Haveli in Udaipur in India.

We booked the Cosy Hotel in Bhatapur with Agoda for our first place to stay after our arrival in Nepal. Agoda charged us £143.04 or $226.80 for 4 nights in a supposed ‘deluxe’ room. This worked out at the extortionate price of 4785 Nepalese Rupees a night, or almost £36 or $57 a night. I was naive enough to pay this because I had not researched other possibilities and costs. The room was far from deluxe. It was small and dark. The combined toilet and shower were tiny – about one metre square, if that. The shower (water was hot eventually) inevitably sprayed onto the toilet. As I said above our view of the Cosy Hotel was influenced by the fact that we had come straight from a fabulous large, airy room with a large bathroom and a great view in Udaipur in India at a cost of under $50 a night. Or for more comparative purposes, 7 nights in a great, large, airy, bright top floor room in Pokhara with a fine view over Fishtail and Annapurna South from the terrace cost the same as 4 days in the Cosy Hotel. Something is really wrong with their pricing at Cosy Hotel.
The positives – The bed was comfortable and cosy – it needed to be because there was very little you could do when the power was out. There was back up power for some of the lights in the room and the stairs. Breakfast was included and after the first morning we opted for the Nepali breakfast which was quite good. It was very centrally located – you could hardly get any nearer the action, though you needed good torches to go out to eat at night as the electricity in the town was normally down from 1700 to 2200. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful – there were so many of them, though they could have been a touch more organised or professional. If you want people not to put toilet paper down the toilets you have to empty the bin every day. They did our washing for us without a charge and they gave us a very big pot of coffee in the morning. It was almost as if they were embarrassed by the amount we were charged.
It was not particularly quiet being in the middle of town. We asked for a courtyard room having read about the noise from rooms on the street., however there was a dog in the courtyard who barked three of four times in the night, sometimes more. I do not know why the Cosy Hotel people could not ask that the dog be taken in at night. People living in the building tended to get up about 0600 and 0630 and cause a bit of noise.
I feel sad about writing this review when the people were so nice, however I think that a maximum of 2000, perhaps 2500 Nepalese Rupees a night including breakfast would be a good price. I am not sure about which room to recommend or avoid.

The Cosy Hotel is indeed "cosy". We had a fairly large room which was at the back of the hotel and it was nice and quiet. The duvet cover was the biggest and warmest we've ever had! The bathroom was small but everything worked and we had lots of nice hot water.

Would definitely recommend the Nepali breakfast in the morning - we had this every morning sitting up on the roof top restaurant - along with a large pot of black coffee. A great start to the day.

The staff are really friendly and will help with any forward planning or trips.

We really enjoyed our night at the Cosy Hotel in spite of the fact that we had limited light, no heat and a non-functioning television. Bhaktapur is wonderful and the Cosy Hotel is perfectly located to see the sites by foot. The room was comfortable and clean, and we enjoyed the view and breakfast in the roof-top dining area. The Cosy Hotel is not modern or fancy, but I didn't see any modern options in the town. I'm completely glad that we spent our rustic night in Bhaktapur; I'd do it again in a minute.

The hotel is in a good location in the street leading to Potters Square. We had a room that was large & clean with double glazed windows. The power is out a lot but they have backup lighting so you can always see in the room. There is a TV & plenty of hot water. There is a rooftop restaurant & we enjoyed sitting there in the sun on our arrival & also had dinner there. The staff are friendly & helpful & will bring you a much needed hot water bottle at bedtime.

I don't know about those these reviewers who complain about electricity when it comes to a particular hotel when this is Nepal, electricity is an issue everywhere.

With that said, I highly recommend Cosy Hotel to anyone who's looking for a place to stay in Bhaktapur. It is conveniently between Taumadhi Square and Pottery Square, and Durbar Square is a few minutes walk from it too. The hotel even has it's own courtyard where neighboring families dry their pottery. There's a small Buddhist temple right on the very same courtyard where devotees pay their respects early in the morning. So it is very interesting to watch these activities right from the comforts of your own room, all you need to do is open your window.

Cosy is one of the favorite hotels i've stayed in. It lives up to it's name, the room can get very cosy that's its sometimes difficult to get out of bed. It also gets a bit more chilly inside the room than outside for some strange reason. When guests can very cold at night, the staff provides hot bags which is a very thoughtful gesture. The rooms are big however, the bathroom is quite small but that's just a minor problem. Hot water works well (just have to wait for 10 minutes to let the water get warm) and the internet at this hotel is the best one i've had in the whole of Nepal.

Of course, the one thing that makes Cosy stand out is it's excellent service - everyone does it with a smile, from the reception to the bell boys that also work on the rooftop restaurant. Not to forget, the rooftop restauarant provides excellent views of life in Bhaktapur as well as the distant mountains.

I'd choose Cosy Hotel again when I go back to Bhaktapur.
