Like most people we were put here by our trek company. My first thoughts were am I staying at Nanna's house? The curtains, bedspreads and towels could do with an update. But after staying in other areas of Kathmandu this hotel is in a very quiet location for Thamel. The breakfast is surprisingly good too. If you can get past...

After staying on 2 separate occasions I've been disappointed both times.. the cost of an airport transfer is 3x other hotels, both times there has been really loud music playing next door.. the shower doesn't have the ability to wash you bit instead sprays the rest of the room.. I'm having to use a friends shower because it's too much...

We were booked into Shakti by our trek company. The rooms are clean but basic. The first night we stayed in a room where the fan did not work and it took quite alot of effort to get it changed. The shower pressure was not good and we were disturbed by loud music from a bar nearby. The beds were...

Stayed in this hotel arranged by the trekking company my friend and I joined. Location is not as good as some other hotel as it is at one end of Thamel street. From the main shopping street of Thamel, one still has to walk quite a distance to get to the hotel. The rooms at Shakti are big but the...

I don't understand the negative reviews on here. This is Kathmandu and Nepal is a poor country. The hotel is not 'The Ritz' but it is ideal for a trekking start and finish point. The rooms are good compared to most in Kathmandu. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is 2 mins from the shopping district and not...

Stayed here prior to a Geckos Adventures trek to Everest Base Camp. Unfortunately weather left us stuck in Kathmandu for 3 extra nights and for ease we stayed at the Shakti throughout. The rooms were very basic, doors wouldn't close properly, showers barely worked and had no curtains or way to separate them from the rest of the bathroom and...

Stayed here as part of a tour group and would not recommend. The rooms varied in quality but included no-pressure showers, intermittent power supply, poor wifi and thin pieces of foam in place of mattresses. Several people also complained of itchy bites during the night. There are cheaper places nearby of higher quality. However, staff were very friendly and location...

So we had to stay at this hotel because this was included in our trekking package. We had to pay for extra nights due to bad weather delaying our flights. Paying to stay here may have been convent for meeting the group leaded in the morning but that's where the good ends. Our bed was a wooden box with thin...

consider that you are in Kathmandu - Not paris! and manage your expectations - the hotel will be adequate. Staff are pleasant and try hard but are faced with power cuts, some mosquitos and a mediocre breakfast. However, that said, if you're here trekking, you'll sleep just fine. Location is central - short walk from other restaurants and the main...

This is nice little place, right downtown and close to everything. You are secluded, with a nice garden. This is one of the oldest places around and that is why they have the space. The city is crazy and dirty, so nice to be away. The rooms are pretty poor, just the basics. For us, we were going trekking for...
