I asked the Security guard for permission to take some pictures and he welcomed me very friendly and ask me to go inside to make more photos. Like in a fairytale opening up the main entrance door - another world opens up -... More

I loved this hotel. Filled with charm. Brick exposed walls, large, beautiful (understated) rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to go and how to get there. You are in the heart of Thamel so you can easily walk day or night from this location. I traveled as a single woman and felt comfortable the... More

Centrally located, just on the edge of Thamel and yet quiet and serene, Kantipur Temple House is a great introduction to Newari architecture and interiors set in a gorgeous garden. Extremely helpful staff, we loved our 4 day stay here, mainly because of their attention.

First off, the hotel itself is one of the most beautiful buildings that I have ever stayed in. The structure is clearly very hold and the wood carvings everywhere are irreplaceable.

There is so much to love about this hotel. The whole experience conveys an authentic sense of traditional Nepal. The building mimics Kathmandu's old grand houses and temples, with gardens and inner courtyard, and carven wood ornamentation throughout. The restaurant is superb, and provides a perfect introduction to Nepali cuisine (supplemented by Thai, Chinese, and European offerings), an ample breakfast... More

This is a great place to stay. It was built in 1996 in the traditional style. It is all a bit basic, but much to be recommended. Peaceful courtyards, lovely garden. It is well located in Thamel. And the staff are nice. The restaurant is only average and highish price compared to other places, this includes dinner and breakfast. Recommended,... More
