I stayed at Kantipur Temple House in July of 2015. The hotel was not damaged in the earthquake and is open for business. I don't know why someone would stay anywhere else in Kathmandu when this is an option. Other hotels in Kathmandu are either expensive and inconveniently located or in the middle of Thamel, unpleasant to be in, noisy... More

First: VISIT NEPAL. It's amazing. Now is the time! I'll go into the normal details after this but I must say staying at the Kantipur Temple House these past 9 days have been wonderful. I doubt I will stay anywhere else in Kathmandu from now on. I am an archaeologist here for work and all of the Nepali heritage and... More

As other reviews had suggested. this place really was an oasis amidst the chaos that is Kathmandu. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful -- they arranged drivers and booked restaurants for us. The architecture is interesting, both inside and out.

Very good and attentive staff. Large comfortable rooms in a peaceful garden atmosphere. Hot what pressure thought. I had to take bucket showers. Though I guess part of the experience at this type of hotel.

Wonderful hotel with great staff. We stayed here three times in three different rooms and they were all beautiful. Great vibe. We stayed here the night before the earthquake, so can not comment on impacts. Recommend this lovely place, well located.

Stayed at the Kantipur Hotel for 4 nights at the end of a magnificent holiday in Nepal - mainly spent trekking in and around the Annapurna and Everest regions. First off KTM is not known for its abundance of quality hotels - and what passes for a 5 star place in KTM - probably wouldn't get 3 stars in some... More

I personally loved this place. It is very clean, nice and a little away from the noisy streets. The architecture is lovely and the breakfast buffet offered everything we needed. I would definitely stay there gain. Thanks
