Kantipur Temple House is a great place to base yourselves when exploring Kathmandu. The staff are very accommodating and the rooms are spacious. The city is dusty and noisy but only a little of both finds it’s way into the rooms. Good breakfast and we would commend this hotel for all that they are doing to minimise plastics etc. Hot water bottles in your beds in the evening is a very welcoming start to a good nights sleep.

6/10 Good

I’m really in two minds about my recent stay. Great location and character filled building, great staff, lots of little nice touches. Some things really irked such as cold building, overpriced drinks, lousy showers etc Overall it was OK but relative to others probably overpriced.

Beautiful but lacking
This hotel is really beautiful. If you’re looking for that perfect Instagram pic you’ll definitely get it here. Great location, helpful staff. However, a few things you need to know. It’s an “eco” hotel- there’s no AC or heat. No TV. And it’s dark. Like, you can’t get ready or see in your room at night. The bulbs in the room were 5 watts- we literally almost went out and bought new light bulbs when we stayed here. It’s just... odd. The bathrooms are also pretty spartan but whatever- you’re in Nepal. Overall a beautiful property but a few small tweaks would really push it over the top and make it fabulous instead of just okay.

Kindness and comfort at Kantipur Temple Hotel
If you are looking for a unique small hotel with a lot of charm, and can live with no pool or cable tv, then Kantipur Temple is well worth a try. I can honestly say that it is one of my favorite boutique hotels anywhere. The architecture is dedicated to preserving the 16th century brick and ornate wood traditional style and the owner/ staff are committed to being organic and green. The garden is lovely and the restaurant is very nice. The location is fabulous because it is just 2 little black class from a main Thamel street but it offers a peaceful setting hidden from the madness:) The WiFi is basically good, the rooms tend to be dark, but that saves electricity. I was a little sick and they had an electric blanket ready for me. Nights can be very cold!! This seems to be a favorite spot for hundreds of European trekkers. Friendly, warm and helpful staff. I was very happy there.huge luxury hotels could learn a lot from Kantipur Temple house.

4/10 Fair

The place is beautiful, charming and well located, but is really cold and dark, they give you electric blankets and electric heaters or hot water bags that in my case make me feel some ill because that only warm a little area and the rest remains cold very cold. In fact, I had the booked another hotel for the second night (It was already paid) in order to prevent getting more sick before I go trekking, That and the noise made by the machines they are using in remodelatiions in the front area (I had to asked to be changed to a rooms in the back) made my stay in this hotel not good.Maybe it was just bad luck
