I strongly recommend this lovely hotel. The people who own it are very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are nicely kept, there are computers available for free Internet use, hot and cold mineral water available for free (help reduce the plastic bottle mounds!!) and plenty of fellow travelers to be met. However the dogs can be a bit loud at...

I stayed at this hotel for the first time in 2011, and have now booked to stay again in June 2012. The staff were friendly, my room was very clean, I am vegan, and had no problem getting fine meals in the restaurant. It was a joy to stay with them, and I was sad to leave, as they made...

We made Ganesh Himal our home base while in Kathmandu, where we stayed twice for a total of 6 nights. Particularly the standard rooms offer very good value for money. The hotel is well situated just next to all the tourist shops, restaurants and bars of Thamel, however in calmer setting. It is also only a short walk away from...

I have only positive memories of this place; they picked me up from the airport, were extremely welcoming, and the general atmosphere of the place was cheerful. There's a lovely garden. The room was pretty big, and there were plenty of warm blankets (it got cold at night). There were several computers that you could use for free. I had...

Found this in our guide book and decided to give it a go.. Excellent! Rooms are nice, food from restaurant is relatively cheap and the garden quiet (Though they do a have a large generator to keep the power on during the cuts) Prices were reasonable ($19 + taxes). Get one of the rear facing if you don't like street...

We stayed five nights at the Ganesh Himal in February 2012. As a family of four with two visiting grandparents, we found that the hotel satisfied all our needs and excelled our expectations in a number of ways. The rooms were very clean and cosy, and supplied with a heater {which worked 24 hours in spite of the power cuts},...

I stayed here with a friend for three nights in February during our first-ever trip to Nepal. We had a deluxe room on the fifth floor and we both found the room to be spacious and comfortable (including the mattresses). The hot water was constant and deliciously hot. This was actually fine for me, but we were on the fifth...

hotel ganesh is a great value compared to other kathmandu hotels. the location is pretty conveninent and the rooms are on par with higher priced hotels that cost $US 35/nt. free internet PCs that are reliable and good food make it a great stay. like all kathmandu hotels, watch out for the mosquitos (we burned invense coils)
