A little oasis in busy Kathmandu
Lovely accommodation, recommended to spend more for a deluxe room (worth it). Boudha is pretty crazy, but you feel nice and calm once you're through the gates. If you're a light sleeper you'll still notice the noise of Boudha at night (mainly the dogs). Staff are great, speak excellent English too. Breakfast was great. Only thing is that like all my other accommodation so far, they don't have blockout curtains so the room gets bright from 5am (in May).

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

Amazing days
great facilities, clean beds, quiet place
I stayed 3 days in shambaling with my friends, and I had such a good time!! Even though hotels a bit far away from tour places, shambaling was so clean and nice that after a long tour, the hotel felt like heaven to all of us. prices a bit high and restaurant there was even more expensive, i would surely visit ahambaling if i ever go back to Nepal:D

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

Strategic Locations and friendly stay-in
Warmth hospitality, Strategic Location and certainly at the reasonable price
Isn't the nicest but certainly one of the most friendly place I would enjoy for a short holiday. The airport pick-up was efficient too and the place is located at a strategic location with reasonable price. Good for budget travelers :)
