I stayed at Shiva's guesthouse for two nights. As the main building was full I got a room in the annex building. As I realized later this is much better. The room 702 was large, with balcony, clean and with well working power socket. It was on the top floor, hence I had a good view over the city, not the old town though.
The annex is just outside the city gate, two minutes walking distance from Durbar Square. It felt safe to walk there in the dark, around 8pm.
Breakfast was in the main guesthouse. Food was good and filling, nothing to write home about though. Ask for Lavazza coffee.
The staff is very friendly and polite.
All in all, I would stay there again and chose the Annex to stay in.
