Patan, Nepal

Hotel Information

The Summit is a very special Nepali style hotel with international standard comfort. For those in the know, the relaxed, stylish Dutch-run Summit Hotel is a firm favorite and a great alternative to staying in Kathmandu. Carved wood columns and cool terracotta tiles set off the lush gardens perfectly, creating a relaxing and romantic option.

The hotel tops a hillock in the Kopundole area of Patan. It's well away from the bustle of Kathmandu but remains only a 15-minute taxi ride from the centre, plus it's close to the equally impressive nearby sights in Patan. The Garden Wing rooms are probably the best value, with modern bathrooms and lovely sitting areas overlooking the lush garden.

Guests have been known to fight over the coveted corner Himalayan View rooms, with sweeping views across the river to Kathmandu and the Himalaya behind. You can cool off in the swimming pool during the sweaty summer, or use the winter chill as an excuse to cosy up to the open fireplace with that special someone. There's a pleasant bar and the garden restaurant turns out superb food; the Friday night barbeques are a particular treat.

A wide range of accommodation is offered, from the self contained apartments in 'Summit Towers' and the luxurious 'Himalaya View Wing Rooms', to the original 'Garden Wing Rooms' and the good value budget accommodation available in 'Holland House'.

Summit Tower Rooms
Room description : Eight spacious rooms built above the private Summit Towers courtyard. Same rates applies for rooms 600, 501, 502 and 609 - all a little special and fitted with cable TV. From the Summit Tower there is a great view across the city, with the mighty Himalaya range beyond.

Summit Tower Apartments
Room description, Perched on the third and fourth floors with beautiful 360° views of the valley. Self contained Kitchen, one bedroom, lounge, bath, A/C, cable TV

Holland House
Room description, Two storied building with own gardens and roof space. The rooms are clean and comfortable with toilets and showers on each floor. Ideal for expeditions, school or student groups, and those on a tighter budget. Full access to all other hotel facilities, including swimming pool, fitness centre, beauty parlor and sauna.

The Summit Hotel operates the restaurant in the Patan Museum, is open from 10am - 5 pm and offers an excellent variety of Nepalese, and continental snacks and meals with organic vegetables and salads grown in the Museum gardens.

The Patan Museum itself displays the traditional sacred art of Nepal in an outstanding architectural setting. Its home is an old residential court of Patan Durbar, one of the royal palaces of the former Malla kings of the Kathmandu Valley. Its gilded door and windows face one of the most beautiful squares in the world.

The museum's exhibits cover a long span of Nepal's cultural history and some rare objects are among its treasures. Their meaning and context within the living traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism are all clearly explained. Most of the objects are cast bronzes and gilt copper repoussé work, traditional crafts for which Patan is famous.
