Interaction with Guests
We are always happy to help out our guests with anything they may need and have a nice chat with them.
Our guests can conveniently find us every morning in our Office located in the ground floor of Yatachhen House.
Being quite busy with our work, we have unfortunately not much time for full cultural exploration along with our guests but are always happy to recommend them good guides for that.
You can't find more authentic and traditional neighbourhood! Once you have discover the old Patan, you will never want to stay in Thamel anymore!
When staying in this part of town you are surrounded by Hindu temples, Buddhist stupas, monasteries , local food spots and hidden courtyards with secret paths. The vibrant local life of the Newars (the original ethnic group of the Kathmandu Valley) guarantees you a very rich cultural experience.
Located inside Yatachhen house, a beautiful conservation project of Newari architecture.
• Situated in the heart of Patan historical city center (Swotha Square)
• Quietly nested inside a courtyard (no noise from the road!)
• Less than 100m away from Durbar Square and the Golden Temple
• 500m away from Patan Doka (Patan’s gate)
• 20 min walk away from U.N. House, Sanepa area, Kupondole area
• 15 min ride to Thamel
• 20 min ride to the airport
Taxi can be found in Durbar Square at all time of the day and night.
There are two big public bus stations around (10 min walk away from us): Lagankel and Patan Doka.
From there you can go down to Kathmandu Ratna Park and to many places and villages around.
As a general fact, we discourage our guests to be systematically brought back by taxi or car until our front door (beside the first day of course!). The old Patan is a very fragile area and cannot handle too much traffic and pollution.
Ask the taxi to drop you in Mangal Bazar or in Patan Dhoka and have a walk in all those beautiful small alleys and courtyards to reach our house, it is much healthier and enjoyable for all ;-)
Other Things to Note
Gas, water and electricity are very precious ressources here in Nepal, please use them very conscientiously ;-) Small problems related to those ressources can always happen, we are very reactive to fix things once informed but you need to be aware that Nepal is a country where you have to be adaptable ;-)
No special rules except the respect of others. We also encourage our guests to smoke on the roof terrace instead of in the house.
Thank you Camille and Sailesh for the an amazing and unique experience in Lalitpur!
My friend and I rented this beautiful room for the last two days of our tour of Nepal. Although it seems more expensive comparative to other overnight possibilities, this apartment is completely worth it and the people hosting make you feel at home!
The Room: The bed and duvet are incredibly comfortable. The shower has hot water. The bathroom provides two towels, soap and toilet paper. There is WiFi and a back-up power source for charging mobiles and turning on lights. If you are new to traveling Nepal, I mention this because it seems that these simple luxuries are optional. Nepal has timed electricity, where it is frequently off, and therefore cold showers with one laundered towel for two people does happen. The room itself is part of a larger building, but does not have a room to the left or right of itself. Both sides have windows that open up to quiet courtyards, and the cross-breeze is nice. Up one or two flights is the rooftop, a great place to relax. Below is the communal kitchen which we used. The kitchen has a stove top, sink, and fridge, plus everything need to cook and serve. There is also a washing machine for laundry, but plan ahead as everyone air dries their clothes in the sun.
The Location: The room is within a short distance of Patan Durbar Square (my favorite area of Kathmandu Valley), and the surrounding historic district. There are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and taxis at hand. We loved walking out of the building into the bustling center of Patan, which, by the way, walking is the best way to explore the area. It is such a great neighborhood!
The hosts were wonderful. We were greeted upon arrival, and daily thereafter as we entered or left our building. On our last day, we had help arranging a driver, and were lent the use of a local phone. For this we were incredibly appreciative. I highly recommend this place, and would visit again, perhaps using one of their long term rentals as well.
We had a very pleasant stay here. The room was exactly like what you see in the pictures. The house was very artistic yet homey. The room can be a bit chilly for us who came from a tropical country. But the heater works perfectly nice. And we almost can't notice Nepal's electricity problem here. The power back up was amazing. It was our best place to stay during our visit to Nepal.
All of the host was also very helpful and eager to make your stay enjoyable. From the first time I sent the inquiries, until the last time when we head to the airport. We also had a very interesting discussion with Mr. Jiten about life in Nepal and some cultural differences.
And if you need a decent and delicious meal during your stay, you can easily go to Cafe Swotha just across the street.
Cozy but spacious room about a minute walk to the center of Patan Durbar square. Looks exactly as the pictures provided. The heater and hot water were all working properly which was essential in the winter months. The staff couldn't be more helpful. They were extremely polite and answered any and all questions we had with genuine smiles. Great stay! Highly recommended!
This home is gorgeous and warm. The location couldn't be better for exploring the artistry and temples of Patan. Cosy Nepal's staff and hosts were helpful with small travel challenges and definitely left me wanting to return. Thank you.
Camille and co is thoughtful and welcoming, we were greeted with a hand written Christmas card and a little xmas gift upon arrival on the 25th. The room we stayed in was exactly as it appears in the Airbnb photos, and so at least exactly to our expectation. And we were amazed at how the power to all the essential functions of the house was kept going through load shedding (scheduled power cut) - which we learned certainly isn't something all other guest lodgings can do.
We were very happy to live in Patan also, as we prefer something quieter and slower and time to appreciate the culture in Nepal. Having said that we were only 300rupees of a taxi ride away from crazy Thamel, which is still a must-go destination in Kathmandu even if it's just to experience the difference.
We stayed for ten days and felt so comfortable that we did not want to go home. we will miss playing with the dogs Jimi and Udi (spelling) in the courtyard and the kind faces around the house. We are pretty sure we'll be back.
Thank you Camille, Jitendra and everyone else who made our stay wonderful.

French Travel freak - have lived in many country including Russia, Spain, Sweden, USA and now Nepal. Today my pleasure is to introduce people to unspoilt places of the Kathmandu Valley, especially the Old Patan where I live.
Very fond of old wood, architecture, animals and nature in general, experimental food and all things a bit curious.
