    About

    This 4-star hotel Shanker is a welcome haven from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kathmandu and offers 94 elegant and comfortable guest rooms. The Shanker was previously a Rana Palace and was converted in 1964 but still retains its most of its authentic Nepalese atmosphere. Each of the 94 guest rooms are tastefully decorated with wall hangings and classic furniture with large arched windows and modern amenities such as a satellite TV and mini bar. The Kailash is a huge ballroom type restaurant that serves local delicacies as well as International favorites set in a beautifully decorated dining room. There is also the Kunti Bar where guests can relax and unwind after a long day and enjoy a cocktail in an original Nepalese environment.
