Certificate of Excellence
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.

Nice view and clean place to stay but rooms seem a bit oldish. It may feel you the heritage...overall service is good and helpful towards any tourists. You will feel calmness while staying in; food quality is good as well.

For its price, hotel Shanker was definitely a disappointment. For example, the airport pick-up (for which they charge 20 USD - a local taxi will run you no more than 6 USD and would be more luxurious), was literally a 25-year old Toyota Corolla with...More
