They have all the basic that travelers need for a stay, cozy & spacious room, clean bathroom, drinking water, hot shower, breakfast and many more. Evermore, come to stay here is a way of helping the disabilities children. They are so lovely and nice people around, and I am very sure that you will definitely feeling no regret after checking out from the place! Highly recommend this to all!

The location is excellent, just in the center of beautiful Bhaktapur. The rooms are spacious and clean and the rooftop terrace is very nice (and breakfast there as well). But above all this is a very friendly place, lovely people and great good service. And of course it's for a good cause! So stay there!

My wife and I have been travelling for several months and have had our share of good and bad places along the way. I have to say that this was probably one of the best places that we stayed. Within minutes of checking in we decided to stay an extra night because it was so nice (the beautiful city helped as well in our decision).
Pro's
- Staff are very welcoming and really friendly
- Everything is meticulously CLEAN ( I mean really really clean)
- Bathrooms are a great size, modern, clean and there is always hot water
- Wifi available, even in power outages (which are written on a detailed schedule in the lobby so you can plan ahead)
- They give you a nice booklet on travel information on the city as well as Nepal. It also includes information about the Hostel.
- Complimentary breakfast - very rare in Nepal and India for the price range
- Great location - just a five minute walk to Taumadhi Tole, through this very nice un-touristy area
- Quiet - easy to get to sleep
- Rooftop patio with great view of the city, perfect during your morning breakfast
- Rooms have balconies
- The best part is the proceeds of the guest house go towards a centre for disabled children which is located in the same building ( all the rooms are actualy named for some of the children in the program)

Cons
NONE - it really was an amazing place!

The guest house is very well located, probably less than a minutes walk from one of the main squares, and maybe 2-3 minutes walk to the famous Durbar square. I was unfortunate enough to be travelling on the day of a strike, and the guest house responded almost immediately to my email asking about travel arrangements, and someone even came to meet me at the bus stop when I got lost.
The rooms are very reasonably priced, especially considering that it includes all the taxes / service charges etc etc that many other places add to the bill, which can be as much as 25%
Breakfast is also included and there is a good menu to choose from and there was wifi available the whole time I was there, as well as a spacious roof terrace which is a great place to sit in the sun with a book
All rooms have their own bathrooms - but I should warn you to bring ear plugs as all the animals in Bhaktapur wake up early and noisily (but this is not problem unique to this guesthouse - the whole city is noisy)
the final cherry on top is that proceeds support a children's home for disabled children. While I was touring the square I saw a group of the children on an excursion around the town - they are happy and well cared for in a country where their prospects may otherwise be very bleak.
I don't see how you would get better value or stay in a nicer place for your money anywhere else in Bhaktapur, if i was lucky enough to return I would definitely stay there and I really hope this small guest house is able to expand and continue its good work

Visting this hotel of should I say "home" made my stay in Bhaktapur memorable. The personal approach, endless hospitality, spacious and clean rooms and amazing 360 view from the rooftop make this hotel one to recommend to others. The guesthouse supports the childrenshome on the 1st floor of the guesthouse and also some of the elder children work in the guesthouse. This is also how I met Naresh and the dutch lady who has started the project. It is amazing to see how she is decicated to improve the lives of these children but also offer great hospitaity to those who stay at the guesthouse. The hotel is located in the city centre and Naresh has shown me the entire city in his own unique way - including all major tourist attractions, but also feeding fish and eating at a friends place-. A great place, great people, good price incl. great breakfast.

This guest house is clean, spacious, has hot showers, wifi and kind personnel, and low-budget. Breakfast (which is included) is served on the rooftop from where some great views of the Himalaya can be enjoyed.
The fact that by staying here the Children's Home (situated at the bottom floor) is supported made it a heartwarming experience.

Staying here was a perfect way to end our time in Nepal. We came for one night and stayed for seven. The location, staff, security, breakfast, hot water, price, view were all perfect, but knowing that this guesthouse supports the home/school for children with disabilities made it even better. We were treated like family. Both my wife and I got sick (not at all due to staying/eating here) and we truly felt welcome and cared for at the Heart of Bhaktapur Guesthouse. Thanks for letting us stay here.
