          Staff were super friendly and helpful. Loved the fact that there was no single use plastic in the room but it would have been nice to have tea/coffee facilities. The room I stayed in didn’t get much sun light during the day and the bulbs were dim so it was quite dark! Great location- away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel but a stones throw from lots of great places to eat and drink.

          Beautiful, quiet place in central location”
          We have been staying here several times particularly at the end of our visits to Nepal to leave on a high note. It's a great place to stay. However, this time we noticed that the staff has started to become a bit slack and started to stereotype their guests. It feels a bit odd when a waiter is explaining that chai is tea after just having spent three weeks in the country. Just an example. But maybe it is just us who feel funny about this.

          Simply fell in love with the hotel. It's very clean and in an excellent location. Staff are nice and friendly. It might be slightly expensive from other hotels, but felt it was worth staying there. Very Nepali temple style architecture, felt home at the little garden in front, where tea and drinks are served. Will recommend this to anyone.

          Very cool architecture & decor, all the way from the intricate exterior walls to the cutlery in the rooms & restaurant. The whole place is peaceful & quiet, a refuge from the chaotic margs just outside the hotel. Boyfriend says place starts to look creepy at night. My room was massive & had quite abit of unused space, but floors are still kept clean & squeaky. They don't advocate the use of plastic which probably explains why complimentary bottled water was not provided (although there was a brass pot in the room with mineral water as they claimed). Bathtub was clean & felt amazing to soak into after my long bus ride from Pokhara. Staff were attentive & hospitable, always by the phone. They even brought me an extra pillow at midnight. There's even a shoe cleaning basket in the room, probably used when the chambermaid comes by. Breakfast pancakes deserve a special mention.

          Traditional architecture, quiet like a temple, great food and service
          For our last night in Nepal we wanted to splash out a bit and Agoda offered a great rate for this hotel. It was a great choice. The place feels like a handicraft and art museum with beautiful rooms and traditional style courtyards. The alleyways that lead to the entrance are run down and dirty, so when you enter through the temple gate you enter a different world with nicely kept gardens and peace and quiet. We enjoyed every moment we stayed there. Not to mention that the food they serve is organic. And for the standard you get everything is still reasonably priced.

          Staff are friendly, the gardens are beautiful, and the building itself is designed in an authentic manner.
          I stay at Kantipur Temple House every year when I come on business because it is a quiet oasis in busy Thamel. They promote eco-friendly, which is also important to me. The building is uniquely designed - when I stay here I feel like I'm in Kathmandu (not just any city). I would highly recommend staying here during your stay in Kathmandu.

          We were upgraded to a Deluxe room upon check-in, delightful service. Room is very spacious, red bricks made the air seem cooler,the many light bulbs also helps our mind to rest better. Food in restaurant is really tasty and staff were well trained, communication with customer is exceptionally well. the garden at the entrance is a quiet compound for morning yoga or evening drink. Would surely recommend this property for anyone who prefer some private moments in Kathmandu,away from the dust and noise.

The gorgeous building and the elegant garden is definitely very welcoming, and the tasteful interior and spacious room are unforgettable, which soothes tired travellers after a whole day of sight-seeing and souvenir shopping at the chaotic city. The room is very clean, and the brass sink in the bathroom is a very nice touch to the overall heritage ambience.

          No air conditioning but in April with the fan it was fine. This is an eco hotel, so also no elevator or bottles of water, but a comfortable really authentic feeling hotel. They do provide all the filtered water you would like and the tranquility from courtyard facing rooms even with your windows (they do have screens) wide open is amazing for the bee hive that is central Kathmandu. Walk to loads of shops and restaurants in Thamel and close to Durbar Square. Be sure to get to Bhaktapur for less earthquake damage to the sites.

          In a relatively quiet area close to the busy touristy area. For rooms facing the autrium, it’s extra quiet. My partner even found it too quiet and felt weird. But I was totally happy with that! The overall atmosphere makes me feel as if staying in a sacred temple and it is truly a unique experience.

          We really looked forward to staying here based on the reviews but were disappointed. Upon late arrival into the country found night manager who greeted us had no personality. He told us we owed money for the driver just collecting us from airport. Although we had just paid driver $10 US based on advise of prior email exchange. Walking into first floor room I immediately felt an reallt bad allergic dust reaction come on, which only worsen as we stayed 4 nights. We moved upstairs next day which was an improvement but still I could feel the dust. Im allergic to dust mites too which doesn't help. Bathrooms are below average for western standards no heating in room so freezing when we arrived. Hotel architecture is beautiful, location is excellent. But if you enjoy dust free room don't stay here. I'm a middle aged woman who now enjoys clean western comforts. But traveled alot. We think over priced we paid $121 p/n AUS 13-17 December 2017.

          We stayed at Kantipur for two nights. Arrived late, staff greeted us with no issues. Love the grounds and the building, very beautiful and truly an oasis in a crazy city. Would definitely stay again, breakfast was nice and quick, only detractor was the heat. The room was pretty cold (December) but we realized after the first night that we left the window open. Second night was better and the rooms do have electric blankets and staff left hot water bottles (the old school granny ones) in the bed to help warm it. Also shower was cold but didn't realize that it heats up after a few minutes, must have left it on cold the whole time. I guess I just expected no hot water in Kathmandu so didn't realize the room had it. Stay here!
