This may not be everybody's cup of tea. But I just loved this beautiful hotel. No central heating, no TV, but 2 hot water bottles in your bed, good food & friendly staff made it a very tranquil stray.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I got some peaceful rest away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre only a couple of minutes walk away. The hotel staff in particular were excellent. There are daily power cuts all over kathmandu at present however the hotel has lights on an emergency back up supply and I was even... More

This was my second visit to Kantipur Temple House and we fell in love all over again. Such a stunning historical building with uber kind and attentive staff . Go for more the more expensive rooms , they're definitely worth it .Super quiet , just far enough away from the hussle and bustle of Kathmandu

First of all, the hotel is absolutely beautiful! Yes, there are plenty of cheaper guest houses in the area so, of course if you are on a very tight budget, this may not be your best option. But it's still way cheaper compared to BUDGET hotel rates in major cities so I'm really not sure what other reviewers mean by... More

Great hotel, right on the edge of Thamel but with a quiet oasis of calm. Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, clean rooms. Lovely Nepali temple style decor. Hot water bottles and electric blankets made the room cozy in the winter.

Nepal was a stop on our trip around the world. We spent several days in and around Kathmandu. Our first night in Nepal we wanted to do something we typically avoid: stay right in the touristy thick of things (Thamel)! The hotel location is a perfect balance of close to the heart of town yet sufficiently tucked away. The courtyard... More

I'm currently in the hotel, and it doesn't provide any back up ectricity, result: it's cold, dark, no hot water, and FREEZING! For the price you pay, you imagine at least a heater in the room working on back up electricity. But the hotel apparently doesn't want to pay for the fuel. So to AVOID if you dont want to... More

Truly an oasis... the best word for it. Lovely, friendly hotel in the Thamel neighborhood. (Make sure you take the hotel name and address with you when you venture out...so easy to get lost!) We were there during both the Dasain festival and the fuel shortage and despite challenges with fuel and staffing, the hotel and restaurant did a fine... More

a wonderful oasis in the center of the busy beehive Kathmandu. Good location for exploring KTM on foot, either to the tourist district Thamel, where you^ve actually seen it all after one street, and also into the other direction, where you find the local market area. We were almost alone in the big hotel, so the staff gave us all... More

Great hotel!! Very friendly staff (they speak in English), good restaurant. It's gorgeous and it has yoga every morning. Hot water every day, good internet all over the hotel. It's located at the heart of Thamel so it's very convenient. You can't go wrong with this one.
