I spent a number of weeks staying at Hotel Ganesh Himal staying in three different rooms. The workers in reception were always welcoming and happily looked after some of my bags when I went off on different multi-day trips to Langtang Valley and Pokhara. All of the mattresses I slept on were comfortable. The rooftop and balconies areas are spacious...

Staffs are nicer, new building hitting Wi-Fi and decoration are even better this time. Courtyard is the pearl of this hotel, very quite and clean to hang around. Perfectly located out of hustle and...

I stayed here for about 5 days and it was a wonderful place to end my trip to Nepal. The staff were friendly and kind, and the rooms were very comfortable and had heaters if you got cold. The beds have multiple blankets so I rarely needed the heater. The shower has super good water pressure, and the hot water...

We bring student groups to Nepal every other year, and the Ganesh Himal is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in in my life. The beds are deliciously soft and comfortable, the garden is magnificent, there is an excellent restaurant on the premises, and Thamel with all its restaurants and shopping is only 5 minutes' walk away....

They are spectacular, the people who run the hotel and work here are very very kind. They are always making sure that we have everything we need. I would highly recommend everyone stay here. It is super close to the city while being tucked away and quiet.

I came here on a trip with my study abroad and loved the place. We stayed at three different hotels and this was the nicest that we stayed at. The hotel is far enough from the main road you aren't listening to the city all night but still only a 5 minute walk from Thamel. Rooms all have heated water...

Hotel Ganesh Himal is a fantastic hotel with a beautiful garden and clean comfortable rooms for a very competitive price. There's a brilliant restaurant and the security guard who waved me off every morning and welcomed me in every night was a lovely man!

The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The restaurant prepared great tasting food and the environment was relatively quiet and serene for KTM. I stayed here prior to trekking and after I finished the trip I had about 5 hours to wait for my flight. They allowed me to use a room to shower and organize my things prior to...

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.
