My mother and I stayed here during the off season (July) and it was the most beautiful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu and Thamel. This hotel is a must stay, I would recommend to anyone and will definitely stay here again.

If you are looking for a quiet hotel, peaceful, good value, traditional, comfortable place to stay this is your place. There is not tv, air conditioner or elevator but it is absolutely perfect for people who like peace and quiet and a place to read a good book. The hotel is also Eco friendly.

- cleanliness is impeccable, room service is twice a day (in off season, can't speak for peak).
- location is amazing. Thamel and Durbar Square are only a short walk away but it is still far enough out to be quiet.
- service can not be beaten, staff are so friendly, welcoming and accommodating.
- food is not the best/cheapest you can get in Kathmandu but is very nice and good for the price.
- mattresses which are usually quite hard in most Asian countries are soft and very comfortable.
- the building is absolutely amazing, with over 3 beautiful courtyards full of greenery (hard to find in Kathmandu) and there is even a small library and sitting area on the roof top.
- 24 hour hot water!!!! Also very hard to find.
- Free wifi 24 hours

The Kantipur Temple House is everything you need and more in a hotel in Kathmandu and I highly recommend it to all. There are no real negatives at all.

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor and above do get a lot hotter/humid but are also I think a lot quieter.

We stayed here for a night before and after our trip to Bhutan. Amongst flight delays, city tours and strikes we returned many times to the guest house, each time feeling safe and welcomed. We spent many hours in the garden and restaurant enjoying chats with the hotel manager, the restaurant chef and friendly staff. We appreciate their eco-conscious approach in running the hotel and their use of organic ingredients in their food. We had many meals here and they were the best food we had on our entire trip. Rooms are basic but the architecture is authentically lovely. It's a convenient location in the Old Town where you can see and feel the daily local life. Our fondest memory is the feeling of joy when we step into this oasis where we can hear ourselves think and experience a sense of serenity.

A lovely intimate hotel in the heart of the cafe culture area. We didn't have breakfasts in the hotel so cannot really comment .The room was spotlessly clean and serviced each day. I would call the decor "comfortably shabby chic" and all the more relaxing for being so. Another extremely "plus" point is the comfort of the mattress. Both my husband and I slept like logs - despite the noise from the street.

The hotel has great character. And if you're going to Kathmandu, don't you want the local architectural and cultural experience? The rooms were quiet, facing a courtyard. The garden grounds were a great place to relax from the Thamel crowds with a beer and some Newari food. There is a wonderful rooftop terrace my friend and I didn't find out about until the last night. A view of the full moon over Kathmandu valley. The location is superb: a quiet lane just a quick block from major streets. And just a couple blocks from busy Thamel. The only drawback is the lack of air conditioning but we were there in the beginning of June at the hottest, pre-monsoon time possible. That was our own fault. The fan was fine for keeping us cool except during the daytime power outages (generator was going at night). The staff was also very friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome.
