The hotel was previously a Rana Palace and was converted in 1964 but still retains its most of its authentic Nepalese atmosphere. Each of the 94 guest rooms are tastefully decorated with wall hangings and classic furniture with large arched windows and modern amenities such as a satellite TV and mini bar. The Kailash is a huge ballroom type restaurant that serves local delicacies as well as International favorites set in a beautifully decorated dining room. There is also the Kunti Bar where guests can relax and unwind after a long day in an original Nepalese environment. Whatever the reason for your stay, Hotel Shanker will make your stay a good one.

Had a fabulous stay in katmandu thanks to Hotel Shankar. Totally surpassed my expectations despite having read good reviews of the place. Will always consider going back.

Shanker Hotel December 2015

I picked up a special deal on Agoda.
Can't cater for diverse diets, eg: soy milk, gluten free etc, and they're comfortable charging you full price for a cappuccino after you've bought the milk for the beverage. Menu is limited. For longer stays, it becomes tedious trying to source fresh food. It's a 15 minute walk to Thamel. Taxi drivers waiting at front of hotel double or triple real costs of travel, and imply that white travellers have an obligation to pay more.

Comfortable stay

Rooms are spacious, Buffet breakfast was good but not as good as previously.
Looking forward to return when renovations are complete. Hotel is generally feels a little worn.
