Hotel Shanker, Kathmandu
An oasis in crazy Kathmandu
It was a beautiful hotel and the staff was pretty good. The highlight staff member was one of the young bartenders - very sweet and loved his job! The pool was great abs the breakfast was a very nice buffet.

Old, Dirty, & Run Down!
This hotel is old, dirty, and run down. My 4 night stay turned into a one night stay! The pictures online do not reflect what this place truly looks like.

Convenient location and decent rooms
The outside of the hotel is really stunning. The pool area and pool bar are great to hang out. The indoor bar is very cool if in need of refurbishment. There is no other real lobby area which is a real shame. Food for dinner was not too pricey and was decent. However, Breakfast is not great. The super dark dining room doesn’t help the atmosphere either. Rooms are comfortable enough, but in serious need of a deep clean and some refurb. They don’t get much light but there’s plenty of space for a couple and there are lots of movie channels. Overall I enjoyed my stay but I will probably stay someplace else my next trip.

Nice historic hotel
Amazing beautiful old hotel. The morning breakfast was good. The location was very convenient, about 20mins walk to Themel. Most of the staff were polite and helpful.
