Beautiful old hotel converted from a form palace. The gardens are a delight. The Kunti Bar (unfortunate name) was great for a meal and a cocktail, the prices are ridiculously low. Only a R200 ride to the Thamel (Prob R120-150 if you could be bothered to quibble over a few cents), with taxis available at the door day and night. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
- 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
