We spent two nights in this wonderful hotel at the end of our trekking to Annapurna Base Camp and we experienced a very pleasant stay. Rooms were of high level, very clean and comfortable, in this old palace transformed in a modern hotel, with a large garden and pool with every service. Service very friendly.
Not very near to downtown (15' walking to Thamel), but taxis very inexpensive (200 rps, equal to 2 Euros).
Wireless Internet only in lobby and not in rooms, 4 Euros 1/2 an hour.
- 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
