A Heritage Hotel: Shanker Hotel

posted on Jan 12th, 2010, under Food & Accommodation, No Comments

Originally  built as a palace by a Rana noble almost a century ago, the building was converted into a heritage hotel by Late Ram Shanker Shrestha in 1964. Initially operations were started with 23 rooms with the property being on rent .  The entire property was eventually purchased  from the Rana family thus making Shanker a fully functional hotel with international standards.
