We had a lovely stay in this family run hotel. The location is perfect; 5 minutes out of Thamel, just enough for it to be a really quite place. They have a lovely garden and a lot of balconies where you can relax and escape the towns chaos. Rooms have a lot of space, 24 hour running warm water and... More

I was here for my University's summer institute course and had the most amazing time. They offer pick up and drop off from the airport. Upon arrive you are offered a welcome drink and then showed up to your room. I had two different rooms throughout my stay because I left and returned. Both had comfortable beds, were impeccably clean... More

It was my first time in Asia staying at local family hotel instead of international chains like Shangri-La etc. Lovely experience, excellent hospitality and customer centricity. Owner very much caring about feedback and truly family atmosphere. I will come back next year! I did not expect that Kathmandu is so safe.

We found this hotel in Lonely Planet as we needed a chill out base for 10 nights after 2 months hard travelling in India. This hotel is 5 minutes walk from Thamel and is a clean, friendly, oasis of calm and offered a free pick up from the airport. Family run hotel and nothing is too much trouble (best Momos... More

Ganesh Himal is my absolute star. I was staying there intermittently between October 2015 and June 2016, while I was working in Kathmandu, and the quality of this hotel was very consistent throughout this time: very friendly and helpful staff, very professional (I travelled as a solo female and never got questions "Why" or whether I was married etc. from...

Fantastic hotel with really friendly staff. It is away from busy Thamel, but close enough to access it easily and very close to Durbar square too. They have a lovely courtyard too, perfect for breakfast and dinner.

The hotel is tucked away down a residential side street about 10 minutes walk from the noise and chaos of central Thamel. A big plus in my view. It is still very well located for the roundabout at Chertaparti Chowk, Durbar Square, Swayanbunath Temple and all the attractions of Thamel. Has excellent outdoor areas, a garden and great balconies on... More

Allways good hospitality with the friendly staff in this hotel. All though older building and rooms all is very clean and nice. And the location is perfect near Chetrapati chowk at Thamel and close to Dubar Sqare. I only come here when I need to stay a few nights.

Love this little charming hotel, with an adorable garden and lovely staff. They really make you feel at home here. Rooms are also lovely and clean. I will be back to this place for sure! Only caveat to note, it's a little off the main Thamel area and tucked away...but still worth staying here..only a little walk to Thamel- and... More

The hotel is located on the edge of the more touristy area of Thamel. This gives you the convenience of having everything you need available with a little bit less tourist traffic nearby. The staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Every floor has a balcony that overlooks the nice garden. They held our bags for free while we were trekking... More
