You really can't get a better location than the Shiva. Right on Durbar Square it is the perfect place to sit outside in the early morning as the temples are shrouded in mist to witness the town slowly awaken before the hoardes of tourists arrive. The hotel is easy to find on arrival as the bus from Bagbazar in Kathmandu stops at the square.
I found the staff to be helpful and friendly though one night they did seem to have a few people around for drinks in one of the upstairs rooms. Though the noise was a bit annoying it was no worse than anywhere else we stayed. And it was just one occasion.The food from the restaurant was quite good also however there are several decent restaurants a few minutes walk away if you fancy a change.
The hotel is ideally placed for exploring the rest of Bhaktapur being within a stroll of several of the main sites and having looked at several hotels in the area it is very good value for money (and te price can be negotiated), clean, great location, good staff and food.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front

The location on the Durbar Square is great. You wake up in the morning by the local people surrounding the temples, offering to Shiva, ringing the bells on the square. Ask for a room towards the square! It is excellent value compared to the price, with towel, toilet paper, hot shower and very clean. It is a home far from home, standard is similar to european style. The food is the best of whole Bhaktapur to fair prices. And the family running the place is most helpful, also for arranging your further trip.
