The rooms are very quiet, clean and comfortable, the food is really excellent and it ranges from nepali to Italian and international cooking. The staff is very... More

This hotel is on a hill above Bhaktupur. It's about a 15 minute walk to the center. While that's a bit of a hike, the payoff is peace and tranquility in a beautifully gardened setting. We ended up staying here longer than anticipated to just relax, sitting out in the garden with views of the surrounding rice fields. Staff were... More

Planet Bhaktapur is a lovely place to stay and to dine. The whole staff will make you feel welcome and cared for.This is a very peaceful place to stay. Just far enough outside Bhaktapur to be more relaxing, but still an easy walk to see the sights. Try to hire Yam to go sightseeing. He took us to a beautiful... More

Are you kidding me!? This place is complete heaven. I'm a five star hotel snob and originally stopped at Hotel Heritage where I was quoted $120. I viewed the room and offered $100 which I thought was fair, given post earthquake, low-season status. THANK GOODNESS they declined. Phew, phew, phew!
