Not far from Thamel, beautiful garden and nice swimming pool. The room is huge, comfortable bed, hot and cold water working well but water turned quite yellow. Buffet breakfast was wide variety, staffs were friendly, very helpful and integrity. One of my friends forgot his mobile phone in the room while we were checking out and departing the hotel, the room service staff ran so fast to stop us and handed in my friend the phone; we were very impressed about this.
If you want to escape from the busy area, this hotel is the right one.
- 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
