A Really nice hotel and good value for money
Its a really good hotel. Not really what it looks on the outside as in the pictures cause its under renovation but its till beautiful inside. The staffs were really really nice and welcoming. My room is clean and i had no complaints. The interior of the hotel is nice. The breakfast was alright tho. Not a lot to choose from but its alright for an average breakfast.The pool was nice. I would have just preferred more umbrellas at poolside just incase i wanted to enjoy the sun under the umbrella. in the end, I would really come back to the hotel again.

Extremely helpful staff, lovely room, great pool
I've stayed a few times at the Shaker and had a particularly good stay this time. The staff were extremely helpful, arranging an additional half-day stay to fit with a late flight and looking after luggage during a trek. It's the second time I've stayed in a suite and on this occasion it was great (the suites seem to vary in quality somewhat so maybe worth checking the room). As ever, the pool is lovely, one of the best features of the hotel, which is also well situated in the Lazimpat district, which is a bit more peaceful than the bustle of Thamel.

Booking cancellation
I made this booking some time ago but then had to change my plans to fit in with my trek. Unfortunately there was no refund with this reservation. I understand that bookings are made on this basis but it's something that Agoda customers should be aware of as, obviously, you lose all the money paid for the booking.

Great staff - suites of varying quality
Even though the Shanker was being renovated I had a good experience at the hotel. Staff were very efficient arranging pick-up from the airport, the airport transfer itself, storing baggage when I went on a trek and doing some laundry for me. The pool and gardens at the Shanker are its best feature. The food provided in the restaurant and through the poolside menu are excellent although the included breakfast is of a lower quality though still not too bad. One thing I would mention is that I booked suites before and after my trek and I can say that the suites at the Shanker are of variable quality. The suite I booked on this occasion was of fairly standard quality while the suite I was given on return from my trek was of a much higher standard and quite excellent.

An ok hotel
The inside of the hotel is very dark and gloomy. The restaurant is very dark, and the only place where there are some daylight is in the breakfast pavilion. However, the hotel is very nice and the garden is a good place to relax after a day's adventure. The staff is very friendly.

An oasis of calm
This is our second visit to hotel Shanker, and have again been impressed with the quality of the accommodation, the friendly and helpful staff, and the beauty of the garden. Highly recommended.

Excellent price/performance ratio
Relatively central location, a quiet oasis with lots of space, impressive former palace.

Wonderful Kathmandu Hotel
We live in Kathmandu and have enjoyed getting away to Hotel Shanker a few times. The pool is great, the gardens have plenty of space for our family to play, and the food is alway delicious! The poolside restaurant has the best burger in Kathmandu. The location is also wonderful to access other nearby attractions. I also have to say the staff is very attentive and customers service minded. Highly recommended!
