We stayed at Hotel Shanker from May 21st to May 24th, 2014. It was an amazing experience and good service for the value of the money we pay. Right from the moment when you arrive out of the cute little Kathmandu Airport, they were waiting fro us with the airport pick up. The check in was easy and people were really friendly. The restaurant was nice and good food at good price. The rooms were spacious, and nice. I would have one suggestion though it would be nice to have a dehumidifier in rooms, to reduce the mugginess due to the humid air.
The hotel itself is a palace with beautiful garden and a swimming pool. The staff were really helpful in guiding us to the right places and helping us with finding a pharmacy and other things. We were visiting Kathmandu after visiting New Delhi, and it was amazing to see some smiling and greeting faces in Nepal. Nepal and Kathmandu was an amazing country and we will visit again for sure.More
