5.0 "Hotel Shanker and Team, Thank you for giving us a comfortable stay!"

We had an amazing stay at Hotel Shanker which is located at Lazimpat, Near Thamel. The room charge Shanker Hotel offers does not give its justice compared to room amenities, services, facilities, and Welcoming staff. Everything was above my expectations. All the staff and owner goes above and beyond to make happy guest. My room was big, very clean, safe, and full of amenities. During my 5 day stay, my room was cleaned every day. Breakfast was so delicious and changed items almost every day. One of the Manager acts as a tour operator and provides all the details of visiting places around Nepal. Not only provides information, He operates trips with good guides and drivers. Not to mention how big the rooms are, the cleanliness and you feel safe. I didn't once feel like I was at a hotel, felt like we had known them. We would definitely recommend Shanker Hotel for a comfortable and memorable stay. Hotel Shanker and Team, Thank you for giving us a memorable stay!
