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 of others!
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.

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.
At 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.
