We were blown away with the warmth and hospitality we received at Shankar Hotel. We stayed there for 7 nights and every morning, right from when we left our room till we reached the restaurant we were greeted by a million staff members who were always smiling and were generally so warm and welcoming. It was the nicest way to start our day!The staff was extremely helpful, happy and prompt throughout our stay there.
The breakfast buffet was very elaborate and lavish, and what I loved most was how it was consistently good!Not once in seven days was I let down! The food was by far a highlight and was the highest quality food we had in Kathmandu. Room service too was very good and prompt.(Do try their veg momos, chicken/potato chilly,they were delicious!)
The rooms were beautifully done up, clean, very comfortable, immaculate in every way. A quaint mixture of old charm and modern sensibilities , this hotel was a delightful place to stay in. Special mention should also be made of the beautiful, well kept gardens and swimming pool. Clean, hygienic and comfortable rooms and surroundings where all your needs are promptly met by a gracious and hospitable staff, what more could you ask for?
The hotel was centrally located and close to all the touristy areas. This made life very easy for us. Taxis were easily available and the hotel very promptly arranged for them whenever required.
I cannot emphasize enough how delightful my stay at Shankar was. Each and every member in the hotel went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They took hospitality to a whole new level! If you're visiting Kathmandu do stay there, trust me,you will not be disappointed!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Shanker, Kathmandu is a heritage hotel, housed in a 19th-century palace in the heart of Kathmandu city. It was the royal residence of the rulers of Nepal, from 1894 until 1964, when it was converted into a hotel. The facade and traditions were kept intact but the interiors were redesigned to give travelers the kind of comfort they'd expect of a world class hotel. The hotel is characterized by exquisite and authentic objects d'art. For example, the carved windows displayed in the lobby bar are over 200 years old. ... more less
