We had such a beautiful stay. As with most places in Nepal they can't do enough for you. It was so beautiful that they would turn down your bed and place a hot water bottle inside. The building is so detailed and the woodwork as you wander through the corridors is stunning. So beautiful and such a relaxing stay.

I stayed here before and after a trek to Tibet in September 2014, starting and ending in Kathmandu. The hotel is a gem of glaze brick and beautiful wooden carvings echoing the architecture of the old town. It is only a block from the heart of Thamel but once through the gate you are in a peaceful courtyard with fountains... More

Kantipur Temple House is a true work of art and incomparable in terms of service and serenity. The traditional wood and brick elements of the building and rooms, combined with the peaceful nature of the garden and courtyards completely take you away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel area, Kathmandu. The hotel takes pride in it's eco-friendliness and embraces... More

Stayed here 23-26 Sept. 2014. This place is worth staying simply for its beautiful look. The wooden and brick room design is very nice, rattan furniture sooo comfortable and stylish, and the woolen carpet is just adorable, I wish they sold such things to tourists LOL))) The restaurant has several very nicely decorated areas, I especially loved the one with...

i visit Kathamndu frequently both on business and leisure and always make it a point to spend a bit of time in Thamel. I recently stayed at Kantipur Temple House on a recommendation and found the place surprising and delightful. From the serene garden at the entrance and the charming inner courtyard to the nightly ritual of lighting countless oil... More

Constructed in a traditional Nepali style, Kantipur Temple House (KTH) is just off a main street in Thamel. The rooms are cosy and no-frills, with a beautiful courtyard to laze time away in (plus a free Yoga class if you wake up bright and early). It is a little on the expensive side (also including the fact that breakfast is... More

This hotel had some really wonderful architecture and great service. The courtyard and rooms were great to relax, rooms were a little dark though. Very clean, especially bathrooms. Restaurant had some really nice food and quite reasonable priced too. Tucked away a little bit so nice to relax but also very close to shops etc in Thamel.

Nepali style hotel with western standard. Warm hospitality, very clean premises and architectural beauty make the charme of this family-run house. Within the busy city centre (Thamel area), KTH is an oasis of silence with a nice garden. The friendly staff is fluent in English.

We had the most terrible experience here, the rooms are quite dark. beds are very unconfortable, threadbare sheets with bloodstains. There was no hot water in the bathroom, no soap or shampoo either. Breakfast is not included in this overpriced hotel. the only good thing to say about this hotel is the nice courtyard. I guess you have to be... More

Walk through the indiscreet gate and you'll really feel at home in this "temple house" ... we used it is a base with three short stays (including leaving luggage behind) over about a month ... we felt like family by the end :) Great atmosphere, great staff ... an oasis ... so close to everything ...
