Walkable to the main bazaar and couple of restaurants close by. Had some problems with the front desk when requesting an extra bed. Hotel was ok, and a little bit further out than I would have liked

Clean and calm location in Katmandu

The Shanker hotel is quite larhe but has a charming feeling from one century ago. All is good. The only wrong part was an engine noise near my room.

The month of November is when Nepalis have lots of weddings, so there was a large function going every night with horrible rave type music going on until about 11pm, and then traditional music starts back again in the morning. I think the hotel should advise about this as we could hear it from our room every night. Otherwise, the staff were very nice, a nice comfortable hotel. I do wish they would supply the dust masks everyone is wearing. Al the locals wear them due to the dust and fumes. As a tourist we seem to have been left out of the loop and have to battle with dreadful traffic fumes on a daily basis.
