I just got back from a 2.5 week trip to Nepal hiking to Everest base camp and while i was there, we stayed at both the Yak and Yeti and also the Shanker. Personally i would choose the Shanker over the Yak and Yeti. The rooms at the Shanker are modern, huge and updated.
Yak and Yeti: The hotel lobby is beautiful and very open. The buffet breakfast lunch and dinner were all fantastic - nice variety of local and western food. The shops were very nice and the grounds were beautiful. The rooms are VERY old and outdated. I was shocked that this "five star" hotel had such outdated rooms. Bathrooms had old cracked tile. The rooms themselves had dirty dingy carpet and just didnt feel very "clean". But the open lobby and fabulous restaurants made up for it.
