I’m just ending a two-week stay at the Shaligram Hotel in the Patan area of Kathmandu. The hotel has many desirable features, including its set-back from a noisy and dusty road and its proximity to Durbar Square, a World Heritage Site. The staff is friendly and consistently helpful; the cost is certainly reasonable; and most of the rooms are spacious. The rooms in the “old” wing are large as well. In contrast to the many appealing features, the hotel does not provide shampoo or hair dryers and the bars of soap are miniscule. Please be sure to avoid the rooms on the first floor of the new wing. They are close to the reception and all other guests must pass these rooms. The rooms on the upper three floors of the new wing are much better, but there is no elevator. Breakfast is included in the price at the adjacent Manny’s restaurant, which also serves lunch and dinner. The wi fi is free but not always available. The electricity will occasionally go off for a few minutes but this is an area-wide problem not limited to the Shaligram. On the whole, this is a good place to stay while in Kathmandu. I have no reluctance in recommending it.
