Very nice hotel and excellent guest service”

Nice location, quiet hotel, nice rooms.

shambaling is a very nice hotel, located just 10 minutes taxi ride from downtown. the hotel is just 5 minutes walk from the biggest "stupa" in kathmandu and the stupa offers several restaurants, cafes and gift shop. the best part of the hotel is the staff. from the welcome to the farewell they are all extremely kind and helpful. they help you with any issue you might come across. they are always smiling, polite. the receptionist girl (tenzing) and the general manager were very resourceful. but the whole staff was amazing! the hotel and the rooms are very clean. outside there's a garden where you can have dinner/breakfast as well as an inside restaurant. wi-fi is complimentary, although the best coverage is near the reception (depending on the location of your room you might lose it). i will definitely go back to shambaling hotel if in nepal.

Heart of Kathmandu-spiritually beautiful”

creative buddhist inspired rooms, staff service, garden

Loved this hotel! I've had the pleasure of visiting Nepal before and I've stayed at the Hyatt, Forrest Resort, and Hotel Shambaling. For the money, it's a great value. The other 2 hotels appear to be on a larger plot of land so that you don't feel like you're in the busy city, but they usually also come with a price. This hotel was incredible. We stayed on 3 separate occasions during my 3 week trip to Nepal. Every time we came back they upgraded us! Talk about incredible rooms! I love the Buddhist inspiration and each floor has a different theme. water, fire, land, etc. Breakfast was good and I enjoyed the garden right outside the front door. The city around the hotel is dusty, but that's all of Kathmandu. You still feel away from it all in the enclosed hotel location. Nice welcoming drinks and at least when we visited Free Wifi in the check-in lobby. Will definitely stay again!

Best hotel in Asia, hands down!!!”

Excellent customer service, quiet, peaceful

Hotel Shambaling has done it right! From the moment you arrive at the hotel, the staff are waiting to serve you in any way possible. We stayed here our last night in Kathmandu and it was the perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel. Serene, peaceful, very comfortable with hot rain showers, large beds and spacious rooms, this place has it all. The restaurant served excellent food as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying around the Kathmandu area. Also about 10 mins to the airport, so very convenient.

Just lovely!”

Beautiful room, nice staff, delicious breakfast

Hotel Shambaling is a wonderful, warm, luxuriously quaint hotel very near the stupa. Our room was lovely, nicely decorated, with a Santorini-esque, deep-blue-and-white look, complete with a book of buddhism, and a 'singing bowl'. Windows look out into a lovely little garden restaurant. And the breakfast, superb! Delicious muesli, yogurt, honey, fruits, eggs, and delectable pastries and toasts. (It's a bit dangerous really -- just too good). The restaurant food during the day and evening, though a bit pricey, is great as well. The staff is very friendly and kind, as well as helpful. They actually upgraded us for two nights to a much bigger room. This was probably our favorite place we stayed in Nepal, and we'd go back in a heartbeat. Tranquil, Honeymoon quality atmosphere. Just great, but if there are a couple things, make sure to have a pair of earplugs; our room with the windows overlooking the garden let in lots of dog barks throughout the night. Also, there wasn't any fan or AC in our room, and it got quite muggy. Other rooms might provide alternatives however.
