                A beautiful reminder about how comfortable well-equipped hotels can be”
                What a wonderful delight The Shanker Hotel is! We couldn't believe the size of the suite when we walked into the room, considering how reasonable the price was for 3 days - a sofa, 2 lounge chairs & 2 armchairs - TV's in bed and lounge areas (although no English-speaking programmes in bed area). Lots of natural light (lack of which is my pet hate with modern hotels) from shoulder height-windows with distant views of the mountains. (The closer views were not so wonderful - the carpark and immediate exterior of the buildin’s somewhat grubby concrete ledges). The bathroom was well out-fitted although the 2 shower heads were a little confusing, but once figured out, quite fine). Another huge plus for us was the excellent over-sink lighting!! The foyer was truly old style glamour as were the dining & breakfast facilities. No wonder it is so popular for wedding receptions. Both meals offered excellent choices – & service. Beautiful gardens front the building. A great hotel!!!

                Amazing Hotel”
                We had a perfect stay at Hotel Shanker! My husband and I are comfort travelers and we were surprised by this hotel. It's so well maintained. It's historic, but with all the modern amenities. The entire hotel is just so gorgeous, elegant, and high quality. The staff was amazing as well! It was the nicest of all the hotels we stayed around Nepal and India, and for about the same rate. Also, this hotel is well known by taxi drivers, and sits just outside of the famous Thamel area. You can easily access Thamel by foot, but don't have to put up with the noise and traffic. It's a beautiful sanctuary away from the chaos of Kathmandu.

                At a good location and good ambience”
                We stayed almost a week. Nice building & as a hotel has a lot of potential to do better. The staff could smile a bit atleast. We were smiling at them & then as a reaction they smile back. Cleaning staff at the pool extremely grumpy!! Definitely can see an attitude based on guest nationality. Lavish breakfast spread. Room service also prompt. Cleanliness could definitely improve so should the bathroom maintenance. Though they attended to terrible creaking bathroom door when we informed them. The bathtub has spots & the ceiling in the bathroom fungus. The floor under the beds & sofa very dirty and not cleaned. When the kids toys rolled under it came out dirty!! Don't think they ever move the furniture and do any cleaning. For the star rating they have they could do better to focus on this aspect. Location wise excellent. Walkable to Thamel shopping area. Good rooftop organic restaurant just around the corner and other restaurants within walking distance if you want to try variety.

                What else are you looking for?! Staying to an old Nepalese Palace is totally amazing! Staffs are so attentive and helpful while breakfast buffet are so delicious. Wide and beautiful garden is a value added to this hotel. Its so wonderful to stay at the garden while Pool is always clean. Loved my stay at Shanker Hotel. A huge thanks to the management and staffs for a memorable stay at Shanker Hotel. Absolutely worth it!

                I wasnt given the room which i booked and the pool isnt heated”
                I booked a room which had a single bed and a double bed. But upon arrival they said that they didnt have the single bed but they will provide a trolly bed. But the trolly bed which they gave was very shaky and bad. So we had no option but to move to a smaller and different room which had two beds. The dine in room service was good and on time. The swimming pool looks very nice but the water isnt heated. Nepal is cold most of the time so you cant actually use the pool. So dont just go for the pool itself. Its a shame that they advertise a pool which cant be used for such a silly reason.

                I had moldy bathroom which caused me to get ill. I requested the room bathroom to be extra cleaned but they only sprayed with a temporary scent spray. I have allergies and it made it uncomfortable. Beautiful exteriors but the bathroom in rooms makes a difference on health and comfort.

                We had a lovely relaxing stay at Hotel Shanker after our Mount Everest Base Camp trek. Everything from the pool, to the breakfast, to the spa was just the experience we needed. We liked that it's away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area but still convenient enough to get there. Would highly recommend this hotel.

                Good location for Thamal. We used to get a rickshaw back for a couple of dollars (better than walking home in the dark after one two many Gorka beers). Pool and garden lovy to chill out in and relax in and have a dropout day. Massage was good. Taxis wait in the forecourt for you. Good coffee shop and bar next door which we used as we found the hotel bar a bit small and pokey. So would recommend you use the bar on the corner called "Cellars"

                This is a lovely hotel with a historical flavor. The beds aren't as comfortable as some other hotels in the area, and it seems like they're always under some sort of construction and the hotel has a lot of potential waiting to be utilized (even before the 2015 EQ). I wish they had a workout room and improved the overall ambiance. Such a beautiful place with a great deal of potential.
