Ganesh Himal is probably the best place to stay in Kathmandu. We stayed there twice - in November and in December, after finished trekking.
The staff are fantastic, the food in the little restaurant is far better, diverse and affordable than anywhere else. However the rooms are not quite consistent - both times we stayed in the same room category but the second we got a better room - with an LCD TV, all working lights and a bit better looking. But all rooms are still far better than in many other hotels and cheaper than others of similar quality.
Unfortunately, Thamel itself is a quite unpleasant place - polluted and crowded. But it is still part of the culture and worth feeling the atmosphere.
