Tranquil place to relax and pen your thoughts and travels in the heart of Kathmandu. The place is clean with big rooms overlooking the garden. Good breakfast. Lots of spots for shopping and close to dining and drinking places. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent morning Yoga classes in the mornings !!

This is the perfect oasis in the heart of frenetic Kathmandu. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. This is a zen-like island of calm to use as the perfect base while in this city. The hotel is very unique (IMHO) and really has the feel Nepal. It is understated and authentic. From the moment you walk in the gates, you... More

Nice hotel in the middle of Thamel, shopping district of Kathmandu. Lots of spots for shopping, eating, drinking. Nice big rooms, clean bathrooms. Free wifi. Good continental breakfast. Hotel saves electricity so the lights/power are on only during selected hours.

PROS: Everything CONS: Load shedding (everywhere in Kathmandu) The Kantipur is the single most amazing hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff are friendly, accommodating, and helpful. The breakfasts are good enough, as is the room service. The decor is astounding. They truly have outdone themselves in creating an authentic Nepali ambiance so that when you leave the sites or...

Travelling as 2 families with 3 children under 7, we had a dreadful experience with this hotel. Everyone travelling with young children knows to plan carefully and keep the local admin to a minimum. We had extensively researched our options in Kathmandu, and following much the advice on this site, booked specific rooms with specific requests. All our requests were... More

This is the last hotel we stayed in Nepal, and we saved the best for last. Centrally located in Thamel, but in a little alley away from the dirty busy main street. There were some construction going on in the neighboring buildings, but didn't bother this hotel. The architecture is beautiful, lots of interesting artworks and details in the hotel,... More

We wanted to love Kantipur - upon first glance the grounds were stunning and we loved the eco-friendly vibe! Unfortunately, the hotel just wasn't a good value for the price. Everything was...fine. The problems we experienced (hot water, electricity, etc) are common in Nepal. We assumed Kantipur was a nice mid-range option - assuming that at $100/night those "comfort" amenities... More

Kantipur temple house has been around for about 25 years. It is the best combination in Kathmandu. IN Thamel close to the action, Durbar square and shops, yet in a quiet lane and with a large courtyard which gives it space and help it breathe... a real relief in noisy, crowded and busy Kathmandu. The rooms have a good size... More

We stayed for 2 nights in February at the end of our trip to Nepal. The architecture of building and attention to detail is beautiful. All common areas are spotlessly clean and well maintained by friendly and professional staff. Grounds and gardens are lovely. We didn't eat there though coffee was good. The bed was comfy and warm with heated... More
