Standard Twin Room
Warm comfortable home stay and host
Coming from the frenetic Kathmandu, Krishna House is the perfect peaceful getaway in historic Bhaktapur. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the breakfast is delicious.
Ajaya, the owner, is welcoming and very knowledgable about the area. He sat down with us and made some recommendations of what we can do in Bhaktapur and around, and went above and beyond in making us comfortable.
I highly recommend staying here if you get a chance, if not just to escape the bustle of Kathmandu then for the owner and the accommodation.
Thank you for having us Ajaya!
Arriving to Krishna House (KH) after a couple of days spent in Thamel, Kathmandu, one would find the tranquillity of KH as an amazing experience. Ajaya has been a very nice, attentive and knowledgeable host. He provides you with lots of information, advice, potential activities to consider and any other info you may think of.
Within walking distance from Bhaktapur centre, KH is a perfect “base” for discovering the city and surrounding area. The room has been spacious and clean. You just need to mind your head when entering/exiting the door if you happen to be a taller person...:)
You may only find a handful of tourist during the monsoon season who mainly visit this ancient city in a day trip from Kathmandu, thus missing out on great unconventional tourist attractions, such as hiking from nearby places easily accessible by local buses. Doing so you would bump into friendly locals, terraced rice fields, curious kids - consider having some pens handy for them.
Little sign of the aftermath of last year´s earthquake in Kathmandu Valley, so it is encouraging to spend more days in Bhaktapur. I would definitely recommend Krishna House for accommodation option.
