My husband and I stayed at the new Shiva Guesthouse No 2. It is a newer building right outside the gate of Baktapur. The rooms are clean and bright. Good water pressure in the showers and you are very close to the sights. Unfortunately, power is only available certain times of the day depending on the goverment. Each room does have a battery power light to walk but when the power is out, there is no way to charge up your batteries. Otherwise it is a great place to stay.

The guesthouse is right in the center of Bhaktapur, rooms with great view on Durbar Square. Breakfast at rooftop with excellent view on city and Himalaya's. In times of festivals quite noisy in rooms at frontside. The guys really make you feel at home. The owner, Shurries, is very proud of the Newarie Culture and welcomed us to participate in all kinds of familypuja's. Food is delicious.

My friend and i visited Bhaktapur for a few days, during our 3 week visit to Nepal in Oct/Nov06.

The Shiva Hotel is situated directly on Durbar Square, as you enter the gates to the city.

We were able to secure a room immediately, which was very spacious and immaculate, and being a front room, we had a fantastic view acrosss Durbar Square and the amazing various temples which stand upon it.

The staff were very friendly and this was reflected in the relaxed and fun atmosphere which existed, especially at evening meals.

I would highly recommend a stay at the Shiva, the service and food they provide is second to none.

Bhaktapur is a truly amazing ancient city to visit.
