My husband and I stayed at The Shanker for three nights on our arrival to Kathmandu. It was an oasis in the chaos and dust of the city and was a brilliant place to rest up after a busy day. The staff were excellent and were proud to work there, the breakfast was the best we had on our trip and so was the service. We decided to stay there on our final night and were upgraded to the presidential suite which was amazing and truely fit for a king.
- 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
