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.

- It's a good place to relax after trekking. You don't hear the sound of the cars from the main street; the garden with the pool is also relaxing. - Staff was very kind, though sometimes I had a small difficulty to communicate in english. But that was minor. - The building, the decoration and sense of comfort is superb. We're talking about an old palace you see. - It is located in a walking distance from Thamel. Though the noise and the traffic on the streets is noticeable as soon as you get to the main road. Also attention is needed to cross the streets, as everywhere in Kathmandu. - Cleaning every day. - Food in restaurant varies from indian cuisine to european. Tastes are good. Breakfast has a lot of choices. - Wifi works fast everywhere.

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.

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
March 23, 2015
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
March 3, 2015
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..
February 24, 2015

February 22, 2015
