Shangri-La is a good option to stay In Kathmandu. The staff is courteous, rooms are lavish, and the small swimming pool is well maintained. Also it is proximate to the trendy Thamel area of Kathmandu. Overall, it is highly recommended.

This was my third trip to Kathmandu for work. I'd been to the Shangri-La for a meeting before so was keen to see what it would be like to stay as a guest. Our organization usually puts us up at the Radisson. I'm so glad I made the switch! The staff at Shangri-La were absolutely delightful. The garden is beautiful.... More

I stayed two times a few days. No Earthquake damage. Choice was because of my office location. Price reasonable for quality. Excellent breakfast, but restaurant on the expensive side. Free Wifi, but writing desk in room is very small, but you can sit elsewhere in the hotel. Main issue is that the room door to the corridor is not soundproof.... More

This hotel is suitable for leisure and business travelers. All the main attractions like shopping area in Thammal, Durbar square, Pashupathinath temple etc is nearby. This hotel is richer in looks compared to their resort in Pokhara.

After the earthquake, there were not too many hotels that were still in good condition but this was one of them. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and fabulous for relaxation. The rooms themselves are clean & spacious but extremely dated & dark with the wood and lack of lighting. The pick-up from the airport was on-time and easy... More

Firstly, this is not the original Shnagri-La 5 star hotel chain, so don't be mislead by the name. However, it is still a decent property with a spacious lobby, good swimming pool and a nice garden restaurant. I stayed here for 2 nights. The only issue is that the rooms are small. In the first room, that we stayed -... More

We were at this hotel for 2 nights in June. Reception is quite large and impressive but rooms are pretty small and have nothing worth noticing. Serive is good, so is breakfast. Overall appearance is a bit outdated, included the nice grounds.
