Very nice and historical building, with good privat security and nice swimming pool. A little old furniture and breakfast not so clean but very good value for money. We stayed in a suite, a normal room but bigger. It is worth it to stay here if you are looking for a nice and relaxing hotel, but the location is not so good, you must ask for a taxi in the hotel and the main touristic atractions are a little far.
- 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
