The manager is keen to explain the eco ethics of the hotel..... hotel is near enough the major sites to walk to using little lanes,( but they are still busy with scooters and cars so take care), but in a quiet setting. There is free yoga each morning...... the meals are good and the staff charming. The hotel is built...

This hotel provides a quiet oasis away from the dust and heat of Kathmandu, in typical Nepali style. Cool traditional building with lots of atmosphere. The rooms are a decent size and the courtyard facing rooms are very quiet. The place is a bit dark - the room lights and the dark back corridor were a bit hard on older...

Located on the edge of Thamel with a center courtyard design that isolates the interior space this hotel is a sanctuary. It is so quiet that I found myself whispering in the restaurant. The traditional design is quaint and very pleasant. In the price range, this place is competing with five stars so pick your priorities. The service is on...

Charming hotel in traditional style. It's in a quiet neighbourhood in the busy historical part of Kathmandu. We stayed at the deluxe room looking at the courtyard which we highly recommend - The staff is very nice and friendly

This is a wonderful hotel set in a charming building in a quiet part of Thamel. The staff are charming and went out of their way to help us, letting us store luggage at the hotel several days after we had checked out. Recommended.

Kantipur Temple House is a wonderful oasis in the middle of Kathmandu's busy, dusty streets. A 10-15 minute walk from Thamel (the tourist neighborhood). The building is beautiful constructed with attention to ornate detail. There is a beautiful garden with a serene pond and peaceful seating areas. The best treat is morning yoga held every morning in the garden, followed...

Wow, the Kantipur Temple House was a highlight of our trip. The streets of Kathmandu are a beautifully busy and at times chaotic place -- and it was so wonderful to return to the peaceful gardens and smiling faces of this hotel. The breakfast buffet was a staple to our mornings: a Western-style buffet with AMAZING banana pancakes. (Trust me,...

I stayed here for 1 full night and had a late check out (8pm) the next day. It is an absolutely beautiful and peaceful place set within a very short walking distance of Thamel. There is a beautiful garden area surrounding the hotel and a lovely rooftop. Morning yoga and meditation is offered in the garden, this is such a...

The Kantipur Temple House really is unique in the Thamel area for being a hotel designed in the Newari style. This does make the hotel a lot more interesting than the standard generic hotels found in most other places in Thamel. The service is also very friendly and helpful. The only downside to this hotel is that it is a...

Since I last visited this architectural treasure, the road leading to it has been paved and whilst the hotel is situated on the edge of Thamel, its well kept gardens and buildings retain an air of peace and tranquility in contrast to the bussle outside. Charming staff in traditional dress make visitors feel part of the local culture and the...
