Great choice if you don't want to be in action-central.”
Traveling with my granddaughter. Great food, no power outages, internet varied but could always connect, plentiful outlets, good shower with plenty of hot water. Lighting is my main suggestion for improvement. Just a peaceful relaxing place to stay. Do consider that there are stairs only, they are uneven, so if mobility is an issue, get room on first floor. It's a 10+ minute walk to Bouda Stupa and the shops and restaurants. The path is challenging, as is any pedestrian venture in Kathmandu.

Great hotel in Boudha”
We just loved Shambaling, it's an oasis in Boudha, near the stupa but far from the noise. The staff is so kind, and helped us on getting a taxi and a ticket to Lumbini. Also, the restaurant is delicious, loved the thukpa. You could not go wrong staying in Shambaling.

A perfect hotel. The staff are so thoughtful and kind, and the premises are beautiful. ”
The hotel is very well appointed, and everything works. The food is excellent and some of the ingredients sourced from the hotel's own garden. An oasis where the mind rests.

Pre and post hike stay”
I stayed at this hotel before and after an incredibly difficult trek through north western Nepal and it was the most relaxing and perfect place. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful, the rooms are very nice and clean and the restaurant is also excellent. Cant wait to come back with my family.

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.
