I and my wife stayed in Shanker Hotel for ten nights and we really loved it. Its garden is magnificent and the swimming pool is just perfect! In addition, it is located near to Thamel and Durbar Marg where the tourists visit frequently (especially Thamel). The only thing I did not like was the available TV channels selection. We checked some other hotels in Kathmandu too, but regarding the room rates Shanker proved to be the best choice.
- 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
