              What A Wondrous Place”

              From the moment of arrival-arranged by the hotel to the moment of departure also arranged by the hotel the attention to detail, the warmth, professionalism and kindness were extraordinary. My friends and I ate almost every meal at the outstanding restaurant. I code the option of ‘breakfast included-so glad I did. When wanting to go on an outing the staff arranged everything thing. I can’t say enough nice things If there were more stars to give, I would give them all. Would definitely return here. Don’t miss out on a lovely clean room with helpful staff and delicious food!

              My husband and I have been in Nepal for one month. This beautiful boutique hotel was by far the best accomodation we had during our travels. The staff were helpful and extremely friendly. The hotel restaurant outstanding. We ate all our meals there. We arrived on my husbands birthday and they had a beautiful cake waiting for him. The location is awesome. A quick 7 min walk to the Bouda Stupa. By the way the showers are awesome with loads of high pressure hot water and the beds really comfortable. Thankyou so much to all the staff.

              Beautiful garden, excellent professional staff and outstanding restaurant

              This hotel is a rare gem. I could not fault it. An oasis in a busy, dusty city. The gardens were immaculate. Staff so professional and friendly. They all went out of their way to be helpful. I could not fault the staff. The restaurant service and food was the most outstanding I have ever experienced and I am well travelled. More than 30 years travelling the world. I did not even look for other places to eat. I just wanted to try everything on their menu. Only negative no television but that did not worry me. A negative for some maybe. I would always stay there if I return to Kathmandu. If you want nightlife and backpackers this is not for you. If you appreciate fine service and quality this is for you.

              This new hotel provided the best service I have ever received from all my travels. Nothing is too much for the staff. Staff even took the initiative to arrange a birthday cake for my travel partner on his birthday! Rooms were new and well-maintained everyday. Service was exceptional. Location was in the less touristic area of Boudhanath, which I much prefer to Thamel. This hotel may not be a major 5-star chain, but the service and attitudes of the staff were more than 5-star! All in all, a wonderful hotel! Will definitely be back someday.

              The standard rooms have no fan or ac so I guess it'll be quite hot in the Summer. There is a buddhist school (or temple?) adjacent to the rooms facing the road so unless you fancy a wake up call by the chanting, ask for a room facing the garden. Other than these, this place is clean, staff are super helpful. I have a 23.00 plane to catch, was hoping they could let me stay to 3pm maybe... but these kind people extend my check out to 7pm without extra charge. They insisted on arranging a taxi for me (fyi 500rs) so that I can arrive airport on time. I go Nepal almost every year and this is the place I will definitely return at my next visit.

              Very nice boutique hotel in Boudha ”

              This is the second time staying in this hotel. Though it is not far from the Boudha stupa / Central area (about 8 min walk), some part of the road is not very good and there are no street lights at night. Despite that, it is very a very nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. I love the hotel cozy little garden and the food served in the restaurant is very nice. Everything works well in the room. I especially appreciate the hotel's help in getting a taxi. They can usually get a nice taxi with the driver knowing a little English and they will help to tell and make sure the driver can take you to your destination.

              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.

              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).

              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
