"All saints can do miracles, but few of them can keep a guest house." Mark Twain.
"Rabin + Sharmila keep the best guest house in Bhaktapur." - Michael Davis, Australia

"For nearly three months, the 'Pagoda Guest House' has been our home. Whilst we have visited other parts of Nepal and India, we have always returned here to a warm family welcome. Thank you for the delicious food and ginger tea, for your constant hospitality, generosity, warmth and attention. Thank you for sharing with us your family photographs, your funny stories, and many evenings of laughter and friendship. Being here with you, we have had the time of our lives!" - Tim Akkouh & Aimee Daruwala, England

"We came to Nepal for a Holiday and met wonderful people. We came to Bhaktapur looking for a room and met wonderful friends. You are the reason why so many people will return to Nepal. Rabindra & Sharmila have the friendliest Guest House we have seen - it’s like coming home to family and friends." - David Underwood, Australia.

Pagoda Guest House stands three storey tall located north west of the famous Nyatapola Temple (Five Storey Temple) in Bhaktapur. Pagoda is less than a minute walk away from the Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Since we are located at heart of the city, all tourist attractions in the city are easily accessible.

Getting here is easy. We are only about 13km / 20 minute drive from the Tribhuvan International Airport. The easiest way to get here is via cabs available anywhere in the valley. Local buses leave every 10 minutes from BagBazaar Minibus Park, Gongabu Bus Park, and Lagankhel Bus Park. If you are feeling a little adventurous, you can consider hiring a mountain bike or a motor bike from anywhere in Kathmandu to get here. The advantage of hiring a bike is the extended rides to many other interesting driveways and trails beyond Bhaktapur city. If you would like us to pick you up (at your cost), just give us a call and we will arrange a cab for you.
