5 Star in Nepal is not quite what you'd expect from 5 star elsewhere but all in all this hotel was very good. Lovely gardens and pool area make you forget you're in the middle of the dustiest, busiest city I've ever been too. The rooms are not amazing but they are very clean, comfy and have excellent showers which is just what you need after a long trek!
Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a bit random but the ice creams were fantastic!
- 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
