Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our last 4 nights in Nepal here at the Shanker, an old Rana place. The hotel has great character and good service. The large garden, with bar service, was a great delight. 2 of us stayed in a suite and it was well worth the extra for our huge sitting room where we could all gather in the evenings. All the rooms had fridges, kettles and hairdriers. The food and drink prices are comparable with those in Thamel, around NRs 500 for a main meal, which was incredibly cheap for such a high standard of hotel. Of course some things could have been better but overall this was an excellent stay.
The Shanker is a bit out of the way, which is one of its benefits, but it may mean you want a cheap taxi ride to get out and about in what is now a very dusty Kathmandu with all the building work currently consisting of pulling a lot of buildings down and building some up.More
