We stayed at the Shangri-La on three separate occasions during November. This was prior, in between and after two different treks in Nepal.
The main road from the city up to the Shangri-La is being rebuilt and therefore there's lots of traffic chaos and dust. This however is a common sight within Kathmandu. On entering the Shangri-La you're now in a hotel that's an oasis of tranquility, compared to the chaos outside.
All of the staff we encountered couldn't have been more helpful and in true Nepalese style always smiling.
The hotel rooms are well furnished however it must be made clear that this is a 4 star Nepalese hotel which should be confused with, or compared to, Western hotels. Our rooms were always supplied with two bottles of mineral water and a plate of biscuits.
The main garden restaurant provides a very good quality and a wide ranging menu. The breakfasts are buffet style and omelettes made to order. With some tables outside overlooking the garden it's a very relaxing place to eat. There's also a Illy coffee shop.
A superb place to stay in Kathmandu and only a 30 minute walk into Thamel (even through the roadworks).9
