Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at Shakya House on the recommendation of colleagues who always stay here when in Kathmandu. The owner Saajan and his family are friendly and always ready to help. The place is very clean and tidy and my room has a lovely terrace. The breakfast is simple but all you need (unless you want Nepali breakfast, but then, I never asked for that so maybe they can fix that too!). I also had to change money at quite short notice twice and they were able to help me out. I also recommend staying in Patan area where the guesthouse is (rather than the main Kathmandu tourist area Thamel) as its quieter, cleaner, much less touristy and hectic and also has a beautiful and interesting historical square - Patan Durbar square.

I had a very good experience with this hotel and it’s staff
A very welcoming place, it is quiet, clean and the staff is very friendly.
The owner arranged an airport pick up / drop off for me, and also a bus pickup, this all went smoothly.
The breakfast included in the stay is very well organised with a variety of items to choose from.
The location is a walking distance from Patan durbar square where you can find many nice restaurants and shops.
I look forward to staying again in the future.

We (a couple) stayed at Shakya House for a month, and we loved the place. Our purpose in Nepal was both work related and vacation, and Shakya was the perfect place for us to have our 'base camp' at. The owners were incredibly helpful, kind and welcoming. Always asking us if there were anything they could do for us, always prepared to take time for us. The staff members were so kind as well.

Shakya truly reflects what Nepal offers, and that is kindness and a welcoming approach.

The facilities are clean (cleaned every day), offers good food if you feel like staying in for the evening and the breakfast is O.K.

We will definitely return next time in Nepal.

Stayed at Shakya house for 4 weeks while writing my thesis. It was absolutely Perfect! Saajan and his family invited me with open arms and took care of every need. They even invited me to celebrate Dashain with the family, an experience wich I Will never forget.
The room was clean, hot water in the shower and a decent breakfast. Nothing to complain about. Also big thanks to Rana who become a good friend of mine during my stay.

I’m fleecet grateful for my stay with you and hope to see you again in the future!

The rooms are extremely clean, along with the attached bathrooms. Showers take a little while to warm up but no more then a couple minutes. The morning breakfast is good. Staff are all very friendly, especially Romeo the dog. Would recommend for anyone travelling through Kathmandu who wants to experience the cultural side of Nepal

Simply the best place to stay in Latipur and maybe whole Kathmandu. When you want to feel like home in Nepal, that is the place to stay. Entering Shakya House is like entering an oasis out of the busy Kathmandu. The rooms are clean, luxurious and comfortable. The motto is "come as a guest and leave as a part of the family", which might sound exaggerated for your ears. But for us, it wasn't. We will definitely come back.
