    Very classy and historical hotel ”

    This is my second time staying in Shanker Hotel, after EBC trekking. This hotel was formerly a palace. Unlike other 4 or 5 stars hotel, it gives you a very classic and historical look. The decor in lobby is grand and welcoming. The room is spacious. There's a garden within the hotel compound where you can sit down and relax. Food are good, staff are very courteous. Away from the busy Thamel Square, but within walking distance. Recommended.

    nice old style palace”

    This is a great spot to try out. Is an old palace that has been transformed into a hotel and thus is just that. It is laid out interestingly. If you get a room in southbsidenbe ready for the 630am songs from the batacks next door that seem to go in for 4-5 songs...and then again atb730am one morning. Besides that was very quiet as construction/ renovations were high overhead but asbwork doesn't seem to happen in KTM until about 10am wasn't a problem. the breakfast is off menu if not full( winter) but when abcriwd is in there is enough food for the stout waters for sure. Never unhappy there. Would return....

    A very nice looking hotel with it's own garden and pool, which makes it outstanding compared to other options. It's located away from the busy roads and noisy streets, so you can enjoy your undisturbed sleep. Breakfasts are pretty good and diverse. And the staff are so nice.
