We stayed here for 3 nights in 2 different rooms (2 weeks apart) and had a lovely time. The hotel used to be a palace so is very grand, some areas could be doing with a lick of paint but on the whole it is very nice. The rooms were of decent size with fridge and air-con. Beds and pillows were very comfy and we got a good nights sleep, the rooms were all very clean and tidy. Breakfast was superb, with a good choice to please everyone, with the usual cereals, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit etc and is of buffet style so you can have as much or as little as required, again the dining room was very grand. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would go straight back there if in Kathmandu again. It is in easy walking distance (15 mins) of Thamel and has lovely gardens and pool which is a quiet haven away from the busy noisy streets of Kathmandu. It is in a secure complex and all staff are very professional and polite, highly recommended!!
- 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
