We stayed at Shanker Hotel for 3 nights , the room was cozy, comfortable with all the required basic amenities, the room service was quick and impressive. They have a 24/7 kitchen service which great, one can order cocktails, food , snacks at late hours. They welcomed us with fruits and chocolates and even sent chocolates with an invitation on Christmas eve. The hotel is spacious and clean . The exterior of the hotel is not less than a palace. Our package included breakfast but we were not able to avail that as we slept really late so we ordered breakfast in the room around 12 which was not the "breakfast " time, but they were generous enough to not charge us anything for that meal which happened twice. The food was reasonably tasty (Indian) and the continental food was awesome. Their breakfast buffet had variety and was really tasty. The hotel is situated in Lazimpat which is a 5 to 10 min drive from Thamel, one can find taxis at 150 to 200 NPR which is quite reasonable or you can walk . Overall it was a great experience. I am looking forward for my next trip to Nepal and Shanker Hotel. Thank you .
- 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
