Happiness Guest House 1 Rating: 4.0/5 ★★★★☆
Let’s look inside
Previously known as Happy Valley Guest House, Happiness Guest House 1 is located on a small street north of the of the stupa in Boudhanth. It’s a very easy walk to get to it from the stupa but see below for direction tips.
With 28 rooms there’s a lot to choose from which is a big plus in Boudhanath. There’s a nice little garden, a Chinese / Tibetan / Nepalese restaurant and free parking for those with vehicles. Most of the guest house has had a renovation since the new owners took over the running of it which in Nepal means everything work quite well!
This is peacefully social guest house with plenty of opportinities to meet other guests or to simply get on and do you own thing.
Rooms & staff
Rooms in Happiness 1 differ greatly so do ask to see you room before checking in. Some are far too small and usually given as “single” rooms. During off season simply ask to see a larger room. Likewise the views can change from concrete wall to garden. The decor is typically Nepalses but everything is clean with tiled floors and the beds are comfortable.
Bathrooms are above average for Nepal with the renovated rooms coming out trumps. The staff in Happiness Guest House 1 are extremely nice which really adds to the whole atmosphere of a enjoyable stay.
There are air conditioned rooms but value for money on these does not seem great at all. Stick with the standard rooms.
Happiness Guest House 1 offers a quiet location with comfortable budget rooms and helpful staff. Compared to others nearby it’s a notch above them.
