Hotel shanker

Comfy beds, good breakfast nice bar
The room I was in was very noisy. There was a pump that constantly came off and on during the night so it was not possible to sleep. I went down to reception and told them. They were not surprised and said the pump could be turned off. After two visits by the mantainence man it was still noisy,so I then had to move rooms to a suite room. I then had to move rooms again the following night as they didn't want me in the suite.I know that they are trying to rebuild after the earth quake but do not think the noisy room should be rented out until the work is complete .i think I was given this room as had paid a cheap rate from agoda.

Amazing stay with a lovely and caring staff

The hotel cleanliness, the lovely and attentive staff and the hotel itself makes u feel at home
I am a returning client. I came last year. N I was touched by the generosity and cleanliness of this hotel that I decided to look no elsewhere. I will again stay in this hotel when I come here next. The breakfast is great with great choice. Even dinner is great. They arrange for pick up facility and u will never be disappointed. A big thank you to the staff and their welcoming smile.

Home for a week.

Centrally located, a quite oasis in the bustling city of KTM, very attentive staff
We had a very enjoyable stay at Hotel Shanker. The hotel is centrally located, rooms are spacious and the staff were very attentive. Knowing that my wife and I were having sore throat and cough, probably from KTM's pollution & dust, the breakfast staff made us honey lemon ginger water.
