Located along the quiet J.P. Road, the non-smoking Royal Penguin Boutique Hotel is a convenient 3-minute walk from the main street of Thamel, where an array of restaurants and shops are located.
Score from 142 reviews Very good
there was a loud, strange clicking/humming noise coming from boiler. Bit of a pain early in the morning.
Friendly staff, great pool and gardens, close to Thamel without the noise, big bed, good cable channels, big clean bathroom, constant hot water.
Bathroom small and bathtube in poor shape
Nice old world building and very nice park surrounding it!
They charged full amount from my credit card at the time of reservation, and did not offer the choice of payment in local currency. They also charged me for the reservation I had made for my friend.
Comfort and services.
The bacon and sausages need to really improve
A haven of peace with great staff allowing you to escape from the chaos of Kathmandu
Dark corridors, ageing rooms
The lovely pool, the decent breakfast, the helpful staff.
Breakfast was great. The pool settings was very relaxing. All the staff were helpful and smiling.
location, gardening, front office cleaness
Loved the old world feel
PLS check the quality of the public toilets on the reception level NOt up to the mark, not so clean and bad smelling. The fact that your tolerate guys dressed up in a lousy way for dinner in the dining room. Those funny creatures are from Thailand!!!! can't u tell them to be in decent clothes??????????????
Location is nice and the garden is lovely. The fact now I can watch the french tv is a plus!!! The comfort of the room 702 is really appealing.AND your IT fellows who are able to solve my problems ...make me come back to the Shankar hotel
Multiple coats of paint hold the Shanker together. You'd be hard-pressed to distinguish this 4 star hotel from a 3 star. C
Friendly staff, particularly the doorman. The pool and gardens are a great haven in a bustling city. The restaurant buffet was simple, yet excellent.
The staff are great
The hotel is set a long way back from the road, with lovely gardens at the front, so it's quiet and you can sit outside without suffering from noise and dust. The staff are great and the food is really good.
Super friendly staff, old world charm, historic building, great breakfast
The curry meat I was served at dinner was inedible all grissle and fat. The bed matress was hard .
Everything about the hotel Shanker is fantastic espec ially the breakfast which was amazing.
People made this out to be some 'heritage hotel' experience. Sure, the place is a converted palace but dark, dinghy and claustrophobic rooms with below par facilities don't make for a heritage experience at all. Total waste of money..
Very nice and quiet location near Thamel , friendly staff, nice garden with swimming-pool and restaurant. Big breakfast-buffet!
In need of refurbishment!! Hotel toilets were appalling and smelt!
Lovely suite great for families-lots of room!!
Asked for a twin bed room but was given 2 singles. However, the staff were very accommodating and changed the configuration immediately. Thank you.
Breakfast - verity, fresh, hot and well presented
My bed was a bit on the too firm side but did not cause any back ache, so it was acceptable
I stayed 8 nights at Hotel Shanker on a work trip. My room was great, the staff were friendly and helpful and I loved the garden and pool area - a quiet space to relax from the chaos of the city. Breakfast was great too. And the hotel was very clean.
Friendly people - good location - clean - free wi-fi - warm and cosy
Wifi is available in most of the areas but the strength is really poor. Bar is tiny and doesnt have much options.
Interior of the hotel is still like a palace and the room service and restaurant is just wow !!!
Looks like haunted place Don't trust pic
Water was yello I didn't get a bath for the whole stay , water is a big problem hope it get fixed
Amazing building surrounded by beautiful gardens. Prompt efficient airport pickup despite late arrival of aircraft. Excellent buffet breakfast with huge variety of food. Restaurant food also very good and enjoyed drinks in the bar. Stayed with family and friends twice on arrival and departure from Kathmandu
No exhaust fan in the bathroom to dissipate the steam from a shower (or stinky smells...haah@!)
Fantastic architecture of the hotel; nice comfortable rooms
