My family and I stayed at this hotel for about two weeks in February 2019. The traditional Nepalese architecture of this hotel provides you with an ambiance you cannot find in any other hotel in Nepal. The staff at this hotel were courteous, genuine, helpful, and friendly and

I'm delighted I chose this hotel for my first 4 nights in Nepal. The staff were wonderful, I loved the no-plastic practice, the hotel restaurant food was really tasty, and the hot water bottles and electric blanket made the cooler nights comfy (I was there towards the end of

Situated in the central district of Kathmandu with easy walks to places of interest, Kantipur Temple House was a gem. The staff were warm, friendly and helpful. The architecture uniquely Nepalise and the environmental ethics that underpinned the Hotel and it's methodology were a

The hotel is beautiful and well located, with yoga lessons and eco friendly that compensates the price The only downside is the cold rooms, they are very very very cold, to warm it they put electric heaters and electric blankets wich are not really healthy, comfortable or safe

We stayed here for only 1 night and it was perfect. A very traditional house ( temple ) that has been made into a hotel . The location is wonderful right in the heart of Thamel . So walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The staff were helpful and friendly couldn’t

Do the basic room have windows and seats? Or just the deluxe one with those windows?
The basic rooms don’t have windows, but they come with a high and low table each equipped with two chairs. Because of the lack of windows it can get quite warm, but the hotel also provides fans.

How far away is Tribhuvan Airport? (in distance or time)
30 minutes to 1 hour depending on traffic. Really the best place to stay in Kathmandu

We stayed on a first floor room as my mother has trouble with stairs. Room was large with Windows/ window seat over looking the gardens. Think it was just a standard room (101). Was a bit dark at the back but that was more of a lighting issues.

Can airport pick-up be arranged for hotel guests? I have booked from 6-10th. can you advice?
They arranged for a airport pickup for me. It is not the hotel that picks you up but instead they arranged with a taxi firm. That is not problem but it did mean that when the driver was very close he had to ask someone in Thamel for directions for the exact alley the hotel is down (I was still got slightly lost after a few days there), but it was really no problem.

I don't think you need to be picked up at the airport. I walked out recently, and got offered first off a taxi to the hotel for £6,. English . Or $6.- Australian, I can't remember, but it was the first offer I got, and I couldn't be bother haggling after a long flight to save maybe a few cents. The hotel will organise anything you want. They charge more like $10.- Australian , but then you have a sort of guarantee. The hotel reception staff is really friendly and intelligent, you can talk to them. I booked my taxi to the airport to leave Kathmandu via them , even though it is a little more expensive that way than walking down the street , but I wanted a feeling of guarantees. The hotel is really good. As for booking direct, any hotel pays a percentage to the system that you book through, so it is always, internationally, possible to get a better deal if you deal direct. But then you might feel a little nervous and uncertain, and is it worth it. The people behind the counter at the hotel are really intelligent. They speak great English and have a sense of humour. You can talk to them.

"room 101 is especially noisy, the window is facing the street and bikes in town are not really quiet."
"Higher floors for more light"
"The courtyard facing rooms are, admittedly, a little dark but don't be put you off as they have plenty of atmosphere."
"View of the courtyard is much better than the ones with no windows."
"Standard twin ( all that was left) was absolutely fine - large with sitting space"
US$58 - US$127 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
