About Hotel Shanker

Hotel Shanker, Kathmandu is a heritage hotel, housed in a 19th-century palace within walking distance to Thamel and Durbar Marg, Kathmandu's tourist hubs. It was the royal residence of the rulers of Nepal from 1894 until 1964, when it was converted into a luxury hotel. The facade was kept intact but the interiors were redesigned to give travellers the kind of comfort they'd expect of a world class hotel. The hotel is characterised by exquisite and authentic objects d'art. For example, the carved windows displayed in the lobby bar are over 200 years old.

Rooms at Hotel Shanker Kathmandu are well suited with comfortable and cozy yet classic furnishings that evoke an air of 'Old World Elegance' only found in a few 'great' hotels around the world.

Friendliest environment among major hotels in Kathmandu, notwithstanding our regal nature and four-star rating. Traditional woodcraft is an integral part of the Cozy Kailash where besides the welcoming environment, you can expect delectable cuisine.

The hotel is located 2 minutes from the Narayanhiti Palace Museum in Durbar Marg and 5 minutes from the restaurants and shopping areas of Durbar Marg and Thamel.

Most of the hotel’s 4.4-acre property is beautifully landscaped. An oasis in the midst of a frenzied hustle and bustle of a modern metropolis.
