Stunning Temple like hotel with unique rooms. The hotel cafe serves delicious food and cold beer. The staff is very friendly and know tour companys to help arrange sightseeing. The courtyard is a wonderful place to sit and relax. The hotel is located right in the center of many tourist attractions. We were able to walk to many temples, restaurants, shops, and the Garden of Dreams. The hotel was not good at pointing us in the direction of restaurants as the staff had not heard of many places so the free internet came in handy for locating places to eat.

The only negative was that they recommended that we go to a dinner and show owned by the hotel but at a different location. The food was not very good, the show was not that entertaining, and the price was very high.

Room Tip: Request a lower floor if you do not like taking the stairs.

If you want a hotel that is convenient and offers lots of character this is worth serious consideration. We began our stay in Nepal at the Crowne Plaza - a good standard international hotel in pleasant grounds - a nice hotel with good service and food but it could have been anywhere. The Kantipur is where we finished our stay 3 weeks later - a total contrast to the Crowne Plaza. The Kantipur has great character - it ooses Nepalese charm. The romms are quite comfortable but our first room was at the very top and back of the hotel - it was a bit of a pain having to get back to it every time we wanted to collect something as there are no lifts. The biggest drawback of the hotel was the constant loss of power. This 'goes with the territory' in Kathmandu unless you go for a large international hotel - but it is very irritating.

The breakfasts were poor - the buffet was very small and simple and it was always running out of choices - we seemed to always have to wait for anything to be replenished. The lunches / dinners by contrast were very good. The location of the hotel is very convenient for the shops and sights of Kathmandu.

Depending on what you want from your hotel this a serious option. If you want luxury don't choose this hotel - but then why are you going to Nepal if that is your priority? If you want to experience a local hotel and culture in reasonable comfort give it a try.

Room Tip: Get a lower floor - walking up to the top of the hotel every time that you want to collect something can be very inconvenient.

We really liked this hotel in Kathmandu. The buiding was old looking and beautifully decorated, i couldnt believe it when we were told it was only 13 years old. We stayed in the superior room and although it faced into the courtyard (so it could be quite dark) it was quiet and peaceful. A nice escape from the busy streets.

Its within easy walking distance of many shrines, temples, markets and places of interest.

We really enjoyed our stay here.

Beautiful old style building, low rise, clean room, friendly staffs with free wifi and internet in lobby. Good restaurant with options of food in international prize. You can walk to Thamel road in ten minutes to enjoy shopping and tons of restaurants, beauty salon, spa etc.
What I learned from this hotel is how the real echo hotel should be since electricity in Kathmandu is not 24/7 so you have to bear in mind the schedule time of each day and that means you have hot water and lights only two hours in the morning and four hours in the night. The rest is depends on dim back up lights. Hotel avoids to use plastic bottles of water by using re-filled container but it's not very cleared with some dust. And from limitations of electricity... elevator is not possible.

Overall this hotel is nice and worth the prize I paid for. I will recommend it for friends and I like the way they try to help environments.

Room Tip: don"t go up high..there's no lift and you still have wifi from lobby on the second floor.
