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 ...

This hotel is a beautiful, traditional style building in the popular Thamel area although the hotel itself is very peaceful. The building is built very traditionally and features beautiful carvings and courtyards. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel faces a challenge, like all hotels here, in that electricity is not... More

I have stayed in several hotels in Kathmandu but the Kantipur Temple House with its Newari wood carvings, decorative brick work and staff in national dress, gives an authentic feel not available in larger western style hotels. It is conveniently located on the edge of Thamel, the staff are extremely kind and helpful and you really feel that you are... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. It is true that it does not have aircon but at night time it cools down a lot and you don't need it. We went in summer and it was fine with just the fan. The electricity goes out in the whole city but the hotel has the schedule in the room.... More

We stayed in second floor courtyard facing room. Service was excellent and people were so friendly like the building itself. Food was excellent taste and healthy organic!! Most of the decor items are recycled materials and that's very good initiative towards sustainability.

After reading reviews on tripadvisor we decided to book the hotel.. The pros are its location, vernacular design, sustainable design, organic meals and most important rooms do not have TV (unless you request in advance)... It ticked all the boxes on our list (food, sleep quality, sustainability, comfort, friendly staff)... The owner Mr. Bharat is a self motivated entrepreneur focused... More
