Shanker is a palace; a palace built
at the turn of the century by a Rana
Maharaja with a penchant for French
architecture, international cuisine
and Eastern hospitality. It was converted
into a hotel in 1964. The facade and
traditions were kept intact but the
interior was redesigned to give travellers
the kind of comfort they'd expect of
a world-class hotel.
You live in a palace when you live with
us. Ninety four luxury rooms, ten suites,
two restaurants, two bars, a swimming
pool, a coffee shop, four-channel music,
spa going on progress and around the
clock room service welcome you. You
are waited on attentively but never
obtrusively; your every need is anticipated
and you are treated with the kind of
royal attention that will make your
stay an unforgettable one!
The rooms and Kailash Hall of the Hotel
Shanker are a traveller's and conferee's
delight. Our rooms have witnessed the
births of two royal personages and have
made memorable the visits of hundreds
Air-conditioning and heating takes
the nip away from winter and keeps you
comfortably cool in summer. The beds
are inviting; the decor reflects the
sights and the feel of Kathmandu Valley.
A meal, a drink and room service are
just a telephone call away.
The bathroom of Hotel Shanker has
been designed with your comfort in mind.
You can dine in either Kailash or any
of the other restaurants and bars at
Hotel Shanker. Chandeliers, carved ceiling,
intricately worked walls, bejewelled
mirrors and piped music provide an opulent
backdrop to meals prepared for you by
chefs trained in the art and the intricacies
of Continental, Chinese, Indian and
Nepalese cuisine. Every meal at Hotel
Shanker is a celebration.
Kunti Bar you can sip away a variety
of drinks in an atmosphere enriched
by stout wooden beams, carved pillars,
intricately carved Nepalese windows
and good, old fashioned Nepalese bonhomie.
You can host a party, hold a conference,
or just plain luxuriate in the two spacious,
well-furnished rooms that are yours
when you book a suite at Shanker. A
litte more expensive, perhaps, but a
Shanker suite is a lot more luxurious.
The lobby, exotic, warm, inviting,
spacious and comfortable, is a pleasant
indication of our quality service. You
are swiftly, efficiently and courteously
served at the desk and should you have
any travel problems at all, the hotel
offers you the service of its very own
travel agency. Knotty schedules are
unentangled, connections are made, seats
are booked and travelling tensions are
