I found Ganesh Himal hotel perfect for my stay in Kathmandu. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is charming (excellent garden area and rooftop). Very close (<5 min) to main areas of interest (Dunbar Square, Thamel) but not in the middle of the most touristic streets, so there is a quiet and relaxing ambiance. Very highly recommendable.

So much to love about this hotel: friendly staff; tranquil garden with lovely but affordable restaurant; rooms with small details that make it nepali and special (ask for the newer rooms near the road); stunning rooftop with chairs and tables to view the snowy peaks surrounding Kathmandu valley; and free taxi pick up from the airport! We shall be back!

I arrived to hotel in the evening as I had given free pick up from airport by hotel, They take me into a quiet zone passing through crazy traffic and hustle and bustle of Kathamandu.( just 5 minutes walking distance from Thamel) They welcomed me with some choices of welcome drinks, where I chose Nepali tea. Then I was taken...

I don't know what to say, in my past review I would have worshipped the ground it was built on, sadly I can't say that now. I found the hotel owners and staff indifferent to how they were a few years ago, from a cold reception, cold dining room, cold guest rooms be it standard, deluxe or super deluxe. Intermittent...

Dear Sir, Namaste and greetings from the family of Hotel Ganesh Himal. I am sorry that we could not make your stay as expected by you this time. Due to less guests and with few staffs in the Hotel the family atmosphere was less. Hotel Industry in Nepal has been facing difficult time since the earthquake 2015 and things are...

We have been staying here since the end of December and still have not tired of exploring Nepali culture. The staff here have been so helpful in directing us toward interesting places and experiences. The rooms are comfortable and affordable. We recommend a garden facing room and you must try the momo. The restaurant here is fantastic.

Hotel Ganesh Himal is a friendly hotel with great service and food. The momos were delicious! The garden is very peaceful and the rooms are great! The hotel is a short walk to Thamel and Kathmandu Durbar Square.

We loved that hotel - Welcoming ambiance, helpful and smiling staff, friendly team and clean, cosy and warm room ! The free pick-up airport service first appealed us to choose that place. The location and the team convinced us to come back after our trek to visit Kathmandu. Highly recommended !! Heloise and Clement

I absolutely love this hotel. I visited twice, in May and November 16 and both times, I was overwhelmed by the kindness and willingness of the staff to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The warmth of everyone from the lovely men at the gate, reception staff, managers and even the cleaners is remarkable. It's amazing value and a...

“We accidentally went into one of the suites on our second stay; I'm not sure about the price increase for that room but it looked amazing! Our room still had air conditioning, but the windows opened out onto a fairly grim alleyway with lots of pigeons. I guess watch for the right hand side rooms if this bothers you!”
