Where to stay in Patan (Lalitpur)

With its array of palaces and temples, Patan (Lalitpur) cannot be said to live in the shadow of Kathmandu when it comes to places to visit and things to see. However, many more visitors decide to stay in the nearby capital, which offers an extensive range of hotels and guesthouses, particularly in the Thamel area. But Patan (Lalitpur) itself--a little quieter, particularly in the evening--offers a good selection of places to stay, including hotels, hostels, and guesthouses across the central area, close to the main square.
