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.

For its price the Shanker is a great place to stay. Close to Thamel but providing a palatial grandeur and the a sense of calm in the midst of the chaos of Kathmandu. I stayed here at the beginning and end of a trekking trip and particularly at the end it was a welcome bit a comfort to return to. The garden and pool areas are very quiet and well maintained and a good place for a beer and book. The rooms are not 5* but do the job well - it’s the grandeur and the staff that make it very good. The staff are well trained and attentive without over doing it. If you want a soft landing in Kathmandu in a historic place then this is a good choice.

Stayed just one night with my family and had a wonderful experience. Rooms and general areas of the hotel were tastefully decorated. Front desk, cleaning and wait staff for all curteous and extremely friendly. Welcome drinks offered at check in. Received a free room upgrade. Good (and free) WIFI. Newspaper delivered every morning. Good restaurant with many options.

I often hunt for best deals and stay frequently. There is no single chance that I am disappointed. Two adults and two kids sleeping, breakfast and uses of swimming pool. Always a great deal. They are so kind and don't charge breakfast for kids. I'm frequent.
