Planet Bhaktapur is not a hotel, is a home. It has done wonderful our holiday. The staff was so welcoming, the chef was excellent, and our guide, Naresh, is irreplaceable. It seemed to be in a family. Everything was thrilling. We will come back soon! Thank's for everything!

I spent few days at the Planet Bhaktapur with my grown up children late August and this was the best choice we could make for our very first trip to Nepal! Francesco was precious for planning our 10 days stay in Nepal, with his competence and his loving attitude towards towards this Country he never made us feel simply tourists ... Naresh, who guided us for few days, was a highlight ... he not only gave us information on temple monasteries and building but he introduced us to the history and to the world of Hinduism and Buddhism so we could understand little bit more about some of the religious rituals we had the chance to participate and to the everyday local traditions. Planet is a lovely family style hotel where, from the very first moment you arrive, you feel at home ... staff is friendly and kind and takes good care of you, drivers and mountain guides are great, rooms are spacious and cleaned every day and, if needed, there is a very useful laundry service. Food is hand made and delicious!! Location is great, only 10 minutes walking to the centre of beautiful Bhaktapur. We found Planet the perfect spot for our holiday and we look forward to going back for a trekking holiday!

I really enjoyed staying at the Planet. we found here an informal and relaxed atmosphere, a very helpful staff and excellent cuisine ( we had here the best dal bat of the country). They also plan wonderful tours across the country, which we joined. An excellent choice Indeed. Visiting unknown corners and off the traditional tourist routes was exciting. Our driver Kiran was exceptional. He professionally drove us to Pokhara, Chitwan and Kathmandu. I will recommend this experience to everyone want to visit Nepal. Thanks again planet staff!

Hotel Planet Bhaktapur is situated in a beautiful surrounded by nature place just about ten minutes walk from the town centre. The rooms are spacious and clean with all you may need during your stay (AC, hairdryer, electric kettle, TV). Staff is very kind. Food is delicious and if you have a special request (vegetarian, vegan, jain or whatever), they will prepare it for you. If you need a guide, you can find him in the hotel itself. I had a wonderful very informative tour with Naresh. I had a very positive experience.

We had a restful 2 night stay. The team were so helpful and friendly it made our stay such a pleasure. The nepali set was the best we have had. The bhaktapur yogurt is amazing. This hotel is about a 15 min walk into Bhaktapur and you need to pay 1500.00 rupe at entrance to bhaktapur. Show your passport and if staying longer than a day let them know and they will extend the permit.

IT IS A HOTEL WITH A PURELY FAMILY ATMOSPHERE! THE STAFF IS VERY KIND, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THE ROOM IS COMFORTABLE AND IS TIDIED UP AND CLEANED CAREFULLY EVERY DAY. CHANGE OF TOWELS DAILY. THE ROOM IS EQUIPPED WITH AIR CONDITIONING, WHICH IS ESSENTIAL FOR GOOD COMFORT IN A TROPICAL CLIMATE. VERY NICE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL GARDEN. THE FACILITY IS CLEAN AND THE LOCATION IS VERY GOOD. THE FOOD IN THE HOTEL IS VERY GOOD AND WE WERE ABLE TO TRY SOME TYPICAL NEPALESE DISHES WITH SATISFACTORY RESULT. EXCELLENT SERVICE OFFERED BY THE DRIVER AND GUIDE WHO ACCOMPANIED US ON EXCURSIONS IN BHAKTHAPUR & KATHMANDU. (T. and E. Italy)

Ciao T. and E. Thank you very much for your presence at Planet Bhaktapur Hotel & La Bella Nepali Restaurant. We are all delighted that you enjoyed the place and the company. The rooms also thank you for the kind words. The food is proud to have been tasted by you both. The south garden and the inner garden were happy to welcome you; the rooftop terrace, instead, is a little sad not to have been mentioned in your review. Thanks again for staying with us and in Nepal. Namaste!

Planet Bakhrapur is the best place in which u cna just spend your vacation. Both Francesco and Naresh who are managing the placd are really nice people and they will help u organize everything aduring your stay, not to talk about the rest of the staff. Everyone is well prepared and so kind! The location is just few minutes by wal from the old center of the city and by car you can easily reach Kathmandu. The hotel is clean and cute in every details. The cuisine is made for everyone, you can taste different kind of food and everything is soooo good! They will take care of you in an unforgettable way, thus if u have ny doubts just go for it. This structrure and its people are worth!! You'll not regret it.

Thank you, Judith, and the whole trio. We are a 10-15 minute walk from Durbar Square, an oasis of peace on mini-hill overlooking town and valley. However, Bhaktapur is also a quiet and relaxing town, except during festival times. Dal Bhat of "La Bella Nepali restaurant," the restaurant inside and in the garden of Planet Bhaktapur Hotel, also proudly thanks for the appreciation. Hugs and good everything, to You and the Trio.... Namaste ! Francesco

We spent 2 nights in Planet Bhaktapur upon arrival in Nepal and it was a great experience. From the well-arranged pick-up from the airport to the last minute before we left. All staff were extremely friendly and made us feel right at home. The motto of the team is that visitors are part of the family and that was indeed the feeling we got. We had not planned anything specific for the second day but Yagya, the manager, offered his services as a guide and we had a great day visiting a nearby temple and of course beautiful Bhaktapur. In the evening we had a surprise invite to join the kitchen staff to make momo's for dinner. This was a nice culinary learning ! Overall, great place, nice rooms, good meals and perfect service !! Many thanks Yagya and team for one of those great travel memories.

Namaste Wim and Family, thank you for your presence at Planet Bhaktapur also from me, Francesco, who "followed" you from afar and I am sorry I did not meet you. You passed the "Planet Bhaktapur" exam with flying colors, Yagya (Naresh) and the Boys spoke very highly of you. Even our gentle little giant Aayan who shared your dinners was thrilled with You. Thank you again, we hope to see you again in Nepal and have you, as Friends, our welcome Guests. Namaste ! Francesco.
