This is a deluxe hotel for kathmandu and it is certainly good to come back to after a few weeks trekking. It has nice comfy beds with clean sheets and lovely pillows. Drinking water is supplied along with tea making facilities. Air conditioning and local cable TV. A swimming pool with nice changing rooms and fluffy towels. Seedily magnificent!
Buffet meals are good but a la carte is a disaster - expect to wait about an hour for your meal.
- 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
