About Hotel

Maya Manor is a historic mansion turned boutique hotel. The original building of Maya Manor Boutique Hotel was built by the Commander in Chief Toran Shumsher Rana and his brother Balram SJB Rana in 1935. The Chinese Ambassador lived in this mansion for 10 years. In 1974, the Sakya Family of the KGH Group of Hotels brought the mansion and was their family home until it was converted into a hotel in 2016. Situated near the previous Royal Palace, where the ill-fated Royal Massacre occurred on 1 June 2001, the magnificently restored historic Maya Manor stands tall in the commercial hub of the city showcasing the grandeur of European colonial influenced architecture which was introduced to Nepal in the 1800s by its Rana rulers.
