“Great Guesthouse”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Extremely clean peaceful room, perfect location to visit Bhaktapur, delightful hosts: we had a great stay in Bhaktapur, thanks to HOB Guest House.
After 5 weeks of guest houses all over Nepal, this was clearly the best and by far. We fully understand the #1 ranking on Trip Advisor.

if you want:

a clean and bright room
hot shower
super friendly staff
helping a children's home

then it's easy, you have to stay here!!!

We stayed here for a week and we've enjoyed it a lot. The rooms are amongst the biggest, cleanest and brightest we've seen in Nepal. Breakfast is included in the price and served by the very welcoming and helpful staff. After a long day of exploring the city you can take a shower (hot or cold) in the brand new and very spacious bathroom (almost bigger than some rooms we've slept in). Or you can relax en read a book or magazine (they have a small library) on the rooftop balcony. Profit goes directly to the children's home, which is located under the guesthouse. Don't be surprised if you stay longer than planned!

We only stayed for one night in this place but it was one of the best we had during our two weeks stay in Nepal. The location is excellent, only two minutes walk from one of the main places of Bhatapur. Rooms are very spacious, as well as the attached bathroom. Everything is very clean. Breakfast is included in the price and you can chose it from a menu. There is a rooftop with a great view on the city and the mountains. And above all the staff is very friendly and give you all the information you may need. Another reason for choosing this place is that the benefits you to a centre for disabled children. I can really recommand this guesthouse.

I stayed here for a night and as other reviews have said the staff are truely lovely. Any profit made goes towards helping the children's home located beneath the hotel which was the reason I chose to stay here. In return I got a very clean single room with hot water and breakfast. There are nice touches around the hotel like photos of the children in the home on the walls and breakfast menus written by the children. Both reception and breakfast staff were lovely ladies and I enjoyed their company. Bit hard to find so best take note of directions on their website. Also if getting a taxi there get dropped off at the taxi point near Durbar Square not the opposite side like i did!

Room Tip: I had a room on the first floor which looked out onto a residential area which had kids playing, dog...

Heart of Bhaktapur is not very easy to find. At their website they offer a good plan and you need it. From Taumadhi Square its a minut walk. Look for the signs at the houses. If you call in advance they send a taxi ( from the airport).
When you arrive there is à big chance you will meet Ratsje (don't know if the spelling is oké). She is always very interested in you. Lovely. If you have a question ask her and mostly she has the answer.
The rooms are big and very,very clean. The bathroom is also very big. I don't think there is much difference between the rooms. Only some have double beds and others single ones.
In THE morning you can eat you breakfast at the fourth floor with sight on Bhaktapur. Mostly Mandira will serve breakfast. Its always nice talking to her.
Heart of Bhaktapur offers 13 rooms, so a call ahead is sometimes advised. They all have attached bathrooms with always hot water. Also they offfer free wifi.
When you sleep in this guesthouse you directly support the disabled children who also live in the same building.

During our 4 week stay in Nepal we did an overnight stay in Bhaktapur and stayed at this lovely, lovely establishment! The place is clean with spacious rooms, has social spaces, is quiet at night, breakfast is included and all the proceeds go to the charity attached.

One of the best parts of this place is the receptionist, she is just so sweet (and funny).

Loved my stay here and would definitely recommend it!
