Wonderful time

“It was an honour to stay in this 100+ years old Newari building. I had a wonderful time with Dhakhwa family and was taken a good care by them during my stay. The room was well decorated with a touch of Nepali style. It was quiet, cozy and cooling when enter the building. I highly highly recommend to stay in Dhakhwa house !”

Prakash and his very hospitable family

"Just had a wonderful stay at the Dhakhwa house with Prakash and his very hospitable family. After 2 weeks of travelling around India and Nepal, the Dhakhwa house was exactly what I needed – away from the chaos of the city, tastefully design house, clean rooms, hot shower and amazing home cook meal ! The dhal bhat is a MUST try! Prakash and the family was always ready to give good tips on travelling around patan and surrounding area, and there are travel books at the house that he was more than happy to share. The house is also conveniently located, just a short walk from the Patan Durbar square. Have recommended it to many and would definitely hope to stay there again when I return to Nepal! “
