You don’t have to actually have to be royalty to live like one. However, don’t confuse it with everyday living, once in a while we all want to witness and experience where the Nepali royalty lived. We definitely recommend you to head over to The Royal empire Boutique Hotel located at Gairidhara, Baluwatar. The 18th century palace can be spotted from the road because of its beautiful white exterior and green rooftops, which we Nepalese people know belonged to the Rajas.

The building was the royal residence of the rulers of Nepal during the 19th Century. Staying true to its regal identity — built by HH Sri Tin Maharaja Juddha Shumsher Jung Bahadur Rana who was one of the most distinguished architects of that time was hired by the powerful Rana Rajas to build this beautiful palace. During the construction of the hotel, the building façade was kept intact but the interiors were revived for guests to experience the taste of comfort that they’d expect in a top-class luxury hotel. The boutique hotel boasts of royalty mixed with modern glamorous décor.

The rooms exude quiet charm, a world away from cold chain hotels and the mad bustle in the streets of Kathmandu. The standard corridors are royal yet homely, with plenty of nods to the Rana heritage – from history depicting photo frames of the Rana and Shah rulers and bronze statues to the stylishly modern wood furnishings that reflects the state-of-the-art conveniences. The rooms are compact, comfortable which has a whole effect is of staying in the home of an aristocratic relative, one with unusually good taste.
