Bad transport arrangements, noisy.
Friendly staff
noise at nights and day times. noise from people talking, dogs barking. poor transport arrangements despite paying high price. vehicle provided was luxurious and clean but the drivers weren't familiar with routes. one dropped us half way to monastery and the other driver took us to the wrong place ended up travelling 4 hrs extra. hotel breakfast was ok but very small portion. it's not a buffet and we are not allowed to have extra due to shortage of food supply.

A peaceful haven
Staff, peace, calm
This is the second time I have stayed at the Shambaling and I enjoyed my stay as much as the first. It is a very calm and well run hotel with great staff in a very interesting and peaceful part of Kathmandu. I would not hesitate to stay here again and strongly recommend it

Comfy, hidden treasure
Outsid seating, comfortable & clean bed, helpful staff
We thought things were great! Really enjoyed our stay and wished we could have spent a second night there. We arrived late and hadn't eaten dinner so they kindly kept the kitchen open for us. Food was decent! The hotel was clean, romantic, and staff were More then helpful and friendly. The only negative part of this experience was the taxi drivers couldn't find it and it took a long while and a couple phone calls to get us to our destination.

A haven of clean & quiet in busy Bodnath, Nepal
Helpfullness of all team members in all matters, friendliness, clean & quiet
I spent a very pleasant week at Shambaling and would come back to this hotel any time. In a busy, interersting, but also exhausting place like Bodnath it is a blessing to arrive at Shambaling after a day out and about. Congratulations to management and the team, you are doing a great job ! Many thanks

Great service but very poor accesa road
Friendliest of staff
We had problems reaching the hotel from the airport, main access to the hotel was dug up for pipe works. Hotel should provide free shuttle from airport at least Restaurant menu and breaskfast could be better Otherwise this is a friendly clean comfy place to stay

Great hotel with caring and attentive staff
Attentive staff, clean room, good facilities
The attentiveness and great customer service of all the staff are greatly appreciated. This is a small boutique hotel that really makes a difference through their customer service. Highly recommended to people who does not wish to stay in noisy and crowded Thamel area.

45 minutes to Thamel; tucked away
Peaceful ambience, Tibetan decor/attitude
I only spent one night, and as a solo traveler, I ended up going to Thamel again to meet up with other people. Not so convenient for this. Better for couples or those wanting to relax or meditate. Found it very cold too. Massage was mediocre, no heat in rooms, which is normal for Nepal, but stripping down for an in-room massage made the experience uncomfortable because it was too cold. Also had to wait over an hour for hot water, which came out minimally once it did warm up. Staff tried to accommodate and there was certainly a peaceful vibe there. Good for those that want to get more into the real Kathmandu.
