Kantipur Temple House is a peaceful and charming home base for exploring Kathmandu. The location of the hotel, on a side street, creates a uniquely quiet and peaceful environment with very quiet rooms (we stayed twice in 2 different rooms). The hotel itself is a beautiful old building and they have managed to preserve the unique architectural details while integrating...

Great location in Thamel, beautiful architecture of the building, nice and relaxing garden. However, our room was very dark and showering a bit difficult due to the way the shower system is built. As it was often the case for us in Nepal, there were extra charges to pay on the room price, on the food price and for paying...

We stayed at Kantipur Temple House for the last night of our trekking trip. By accident, that was the best decision we've made on the entire trip. Thamel is a jungle of noise and crowds. It caters well to trekkers - everywhere you go, you find tour companies, restaurants, pubs and clubs, and lots of taxis. That's great if you're...

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,...
