Nepali tradition and modern comfort meet at Traditional Comfort. As soon as you enter the red-brick building you will notice the perfect balance between traditional artistic features and comfortable modern hospitality. Traditional Comfort follows Newari design and architectural principles. The Newar people of the Kathmandu Valley are said to have been the originators of the distinctive pagoda style of temple architecture, which later spread throughout East Asia. The unique brickwork and woodcarving commonly seen in Newar buildings—including the modern Traditional Comfort—is rarely seen outside of Nepal. Local craftspeople from Patan and Bungamati have hand crafted every detail in the building, from the dark wood carved beams to the bronze fixtures in the lobby to the decorative tile-work in the bathrooms. Although understated in its elegance, Traditional Comfort contains many intricate, surprising details for curious guests: angled ankhi-jyaal windows that cast geometric shadows; scenes of local life hand-painted directly onto the walls. At Traditional Comfort you will be surrounded by the fusion of ancient traditions and a modern capital city. We believe in the power of sustainable tourism. As well as employing local artisans in the design and construction of the hotel, we employ responsible environmental practices.
