Nepalese archtitecture, a peaceful garden and friendly service. The owner Bharat Basnet and his daughter started the Eco and Bio philosophy in Nepal. All ingridients of the dishes served in the restaurant are from controlled farms, no plastic bottles, cloth bags for laundry. Especially tasty organic coffee and homemade Papaya marmalade.
Prices in the restaurant are reasonable, rather cheaper than in most of Thamel restaurants - and much, much better.
The owner restored another old building and converted it into a restaurant which serves excellent ethnic - and as the only one organic cuisine. A dinnere in Bhojan Griha is a must!
It was not my first stay in this hotel and will not be my last one!!

Kantipur Temple House was our first stop in Nepal. The hotel was very nicely landscaped with gorgeous architecture. Initially, however, we were a little dissapointed when we realised the room had no tv and that there were nightly power cuts (which we later found out applied to the rest of Nepal as well). However, by the end of the stay, we became ardent fans of this place, so much so that we even chose to come back to spend our last night in this hotel.

Food was excellent. Atmosphere was excellent, there was a central heater in the lobby where we were happy to stay to warm ourselves during the nighty power cuts. The staff were really nice to place heating pads into our beds at night to keep us warm in a cold place, resulting in the most comforting sleep we had in nepal.

The staff were extremely friendly and were ever willing to help us with whatever we needed.

The hotel emphasises on eco friendliness - we didn't have to buy bottles of water, as they encouraged us to use their water refill facility. There were recycled cloth bags provided to prevent us from using plastic bags.

Although the hotel is located in the central Thamel region in Kathmandu, it was just away from the bustling streets of Thamel, to provide a very relaxing and serene environment.

Overall, our favourite place to stay in Kathmandu and a definite recommendation!

Room Tip: request for rooms on the lower floor (no lifts)

It's location off Thamel, close enough but away from the hustle and bustle, was perfect: No noise at night. The hotel itself is very handsome but the rooms, at least ours, was quite small and humid, not as nice as the pictures on the website.

However, the service quite makes up for it. They kept us informed of the load shedding schedule in that area of Kathmandu so we were always aware of the time we had to shower and use electricity in our room. The staff was always helpful and friendly and made the stay enjoyable.

Since the weather was cold, we were greeted in our rooms with hot-water bags inside the sheets to make the bed more comfortable, that was a nice detail.

The hotel has a restaurant, we only tried it for breakfast and was good.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are way better than normal ones...

'Five star opulance' it is not but 'Five star authentic Nepalese Eco hotel' it most certainly is.
If you are looking for a tranquil, safe haven getaway with 'Green 'credentials then this is the place to stay. It offers a taste of real Nepal both culturally and through cruisine. The food is home produced and delicious. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive without being intrusive.
There is no TV but there are computers available to access.
A evening visit to Bhojon Griha is a must.

Staying at Kantipur Temple House Hotel puts you simultaneously in the thick of things (on the fringe of Tamel) and in your own safe world (down an alley with your choice of a wonderful garden or a rooftop to get served your tea or Everest beer)
We found our (standard) room very spacious and comfortable. The best thing about the hotel may be the staff - they are all can-do people and really strive to make your stay pleasant.
We also loved the architecture - it feels a bit like you are staying on a Newari Palace.
On the not so great side, the place is quite dark, even when the electricity is on. The schedule for power is something every visitor to Kathmandu has to cope with, regardless of hotel. Kantipur supplements this with generator power much of the time, but you can't recharge your camera batteries or other devices on generator, and the wifi is also restricted to the power schedule.
On the not so great side, the place
