“I slept like logs”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

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.

The Kantipur Temple House is in the heart of Kathmandu, which means no need to sit in traffic to go shopping or restaurants. You will, however, need a driver to see the outlying temples. It is a quiet refuge in the midst of all the hustle and bustle and is built in the style of a local temple. If you are looking for character, clean environment, excellent food, lovely staff, this is the hotel for you. Do not stay here if you are a chain hotel kind of traveler and need modern amenities, like television. If you want an environment that captures the character Nepal, this is the place for you.

So I know Kathmandu quite well - I have stayed at the Hyatt, Dwarikas, Yak & Yeti. I would say that this hotel is a bit behind Dwarikas and Hyatt as a hotel but way better in terms of location. Hyatt and Dwarikas are really far away. Yak & Yeti is really more like Yuck & Yeti so Kantipur Temple House is really good. We stayed in two separate rooms but both were really high up - we were there for a total of one week.
Pro: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION; Staff tries hard; Food is pretty good - though service is somewhat uneven; Very authentic Newari architecture;
Con: Internet connection is very poor (though to be fair, this is Nepal); rooms are dark; no stairs (ouch as we stayed on top floors); Rooms are comfortable, but not very comfortable. Value for money - it was quite expensive and there was nothing more than really really cheap soap as amenities.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in a deluxe room overlooking the courtyard. Wonderful architecture and feeling, especially in the garden/courtyard. Great location just outside Thamel...a quiet refuge. Very friendly staff. They are a 'green' hotel with no A/C so if you don't like the heat at night, this is not the place for you...also, no elevator! Bathroom a bit of a disappointment...no toiletries or face cloths. Breakfast so-so.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are 'deluxe' but sometimes, guests can chat loudly and long...
