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

Lovely hotel with Nepalese architecture that I find really fascinating.. Rooms are nicely decorated, and staff are friendly. It is a bit pricey, breakfast buffet is also pricey and very basic (for the price). the garden/courtyard area is breathtaking especially for early morning coffee or evening drinks They offer daily morning yoga and meditation session which is a perfect way...

You enter the gate of this hidden gem and feel the serenity. The garden is beautiful, as are the art and tastefully decorated rooms. The rooms are a little dark, but it lends a certain calm ambiance. I really enjoyed this hotel, especially after the cacophony of Thamel. Excellent experience!

Stayed here June 2014. We had a lovely room (3rd floor, courtyard facing). The hotel is just gorgeous and a minutes walk from the main Thamel/Jyatha area. It's tucked away from the main street which is nice. The garden is LOVELY and the architecture is just superb. The service was extremely prompt. No TVs in the room- but there is... More

Kantipur Temple House is a beautiful restored property right in the old city. With the mass confusion of Kathmandu all around you the green and calm oasis of temple house is a great reprieve. The location is very convenient to all the historic site within the old city center and the hotel offers all the present day amenities a traveler... More

I was impressed by the architecture and enjoyed my spacious and quiet room. The courtyeard is nice! Compared to other hotels I stayed in during my full month in Nepal, I found Kantipur Temple House lacked the outstanding and friendly service I appreciated so much in Nepal. The restaurant was rather gloomy. Good food; basic breakfasts.

Very impressed with the friendly and courteous staff. The food is excellent and the general environment and ambience of the place is relaxing and inviting. Located in the heart of Thamel it is walking distance to the ancient sites of Darbar Square.
