Room was very small. Cheaply made, and you can hear noises from the next door or the room above. Bed sheets were clean.

Very nice but a bit out of the way...
The stay was great aside from a bit out of the way and few taxi's or people where it was.The family that owns it are tremendously service oriented and will bend over backwards to help. The b-fast is decent too!

Friendly and welcoming.
Shakya House is in walking distance......10 minutes at most from Durbar Square. The walk itself is very interesting as it is the very old area of Patan and every moment there are amazing sights to see. It is also only 10/15 minute from a large supermarket that has everything you my need. It is well worth the stay as the owner and the staff are very welcoming and will do anything to help. As the sign says... come as a guest and leave as a friend.

Very clean, pretty and welcoming hotel
I spent a lovely two nights at Shakya House. All of the staff were very friendly, especially the owner. I stayed in the Green Tara room (twin) - the mattresses were very comfortable, the room was very clean and had some lovely furnishings. The bathroom is clean and has a very hot shower. There is a pleasant self-service breakfast room with fruit, breads, eggs,cereals, tea and coffee. At the front, there is a lovely, peaceful garden. The location is 10 minutes' walk to Durbar Square which means it is nice and quiet at night too. I would most definitely return to Shakya House!

Small family-run hotel 10 mins from Patan Dubar Sq

Finally, a CLEAN place to stay!
The hotel felt the most clean of all of the places that we had stayed over the prior month in India and Nepal - this includes the "3 and 4 star" hotels, which often times just look clean on the surface. The owner was one of the most friendly people who we have encountered in Nepal, and helped to make sure that our taxi driver got us there safely, as well as when we left. 5 or 6 block walk from Durbar sqare. Breakfast was great. Internet and power worked. The only downside was that we couldn't get hot water in the bathroom (but it wasn't freezing either, and this is the case in most places that we have stayed in Nepal).

Valde for the money
Friendly staff, very helpfull in every way. Good beds, and clean. But No warm water in shower and breakfeast is ok. It feels safe and would recommend it if you are out treeking, just need a good place for your stuff and to rest.
