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

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.

I just got back form this trip and wanted to comment on the amazing staff at this hotel. It's located just 1 street off a main one in Thamel, so it's quite a central location but being one block off of the noise. The hotel has a very beautiful courtyard and general feel that is best described as well....temple like.... More

Wonderful place that felt like homecoming. I travelled for two months around Nepal and Bhutan and was lucky to have found this sustainable boutique hotel with excellent organic food and extra kind staff. The free daily morning yoga class in the quiet garden was a boon after a three week Everest trek. Their own tour company helped not only organize... More

Kanitpur Temple House is stunningly beautiful, but as the title says "look beyond the obvious". Nepal's capital is undergoing rapid development, tourism is taking off in a big way and environmental problems occur frequently. However, by visiting this hotel in Kathmandu you are doing more than just being a tourist contributing to the development and growth of the city and... More
