Lonely Planet review

Hidden down an alley on the edge of the old town, at the southern end of Jyatha, this Newari-temple-style hotel has been built with meticulous attention to detail. The spacious rooms are tastefully decorated, with traditional carved wood, window seats and specially commissioned fair-trade dhaka (hand-woven) cloth bedspreads. Due to the traditional nature of the building, rooms tend to be a little dark. This place is doing its best to be eco-friendly – guests are given cloth bags to use when shopping and bulk mineral water is available free of charge in bronze pitchers (in fact, there’s no plastic anywhere in the hotel). The new block encircles a traditional brick courtyard and there’s garden and rooftop seating. The old-town location is close to almost anywhere in town, but taxi drivers might have a hard time finding it.

Our independent authors have visited Kantipur Temple House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kathmandu.
