The Inn Patan

Patan | First Class

Hidden in a quiet corner of Patan, away from the more tourist-centric areas of Kathmandu, The Inn Patan is a homely boutique with heaps of character and a welcoming ambiance. Restored to its original glory by world-renowned conservation architect Rohit Ranjitkar, the building’s Newari heritage glows with a warmth and individuality, making this simple boutique the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring the UNESCO listed Patan Durbar Square.

Warm brick walls, punctuated with dark, carved wooden features, rise around a central courtyard. Traditional floor-to-ceiling shutters fold back, letting natural light radiate into the interiors. Each of the ten guestrooms is different and individually designed. Plush double beds are arranged in cosy corners and under eaves. Exposed beams, sanded woodwork and terracotta tiles contrast against crisp, white walls in an elegant fusion of tradition and contemporary design. Table lamps add an amber glow; low armchairs and window seats create inviting reading nooks. As it’s an old building, the ceilings are quite low in places, so mind your head when walking around!

The courtyard, scattered with mismatched pots that brim with green foliage and bright blooms, provides a natural focal point for relaxed socialising and evening events. Under the arches are side tables where you can sit and enjoy a range of dishes, including traditional Nepali thali, prepared using fresh local ingredients in the hotel restaurant, and where breakfast is served as the sun rises over the rooftops.

We Say
A lovingly re-invigorated showcase of Kathmandu’s historic architecture wrapped around welcoming modern facilities.
