On behalf of my childhood friends and their spouses, I would like to express my profound and sincere appreciation for the quality of service offered to our group of travellers (6 couples) during the days of our very recent but brief stay at the Hotel Shanker in Kathmandu. Despite the few other offers that I had received from other hotels, I decided, on behalf of the group, for this hotel not only because of the very good deal on the offered price, but also because of the heritage and history of the building (I was entrusted with the responsibility of confirming the travel arrangements like hotel/transport, etc., and to be honest, I am a sucker for these kind of buildings/hotels!).
It was a good decision! We all immensely enjoyed the peace and quiet offered in all the facilities of the hotel. This definitely added to the excellent service of all the staff, allowing us to explore the many tourist spots in and around Kathmandu, without having to worry at all about discrepancies and discomforts at our place of stay.
We had a marvelous stay. Wonderful interiors, very good service and some pleasant dining too!
I will definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family, and I’m sure if and when I am back again next, I’ll be looking forward to a further stay.
Thank you all at the hotel for making our brief stay pleasantly memorable.
- 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
