Re-visited Kathmandu in October 2010 and stayed here for the second part of our trip (it gets booked up very far in advance due to popularity). It is an excellent value guesthouse with very clean rooms, a great view from the roof, comfortable beds (a rarity in budget accom in KTM) and a superb location just south of Thamel (10mins... More

This is the best place to stay in KTM ! Located in a quiet neighborhood. Everybody actually enjoy his job there, you are always greeted with a huge smile, and they will even try to arrange a taxi pick up at the other side of the city or book your next hotel for you ! The restaurant is amazing, they... More

Located around the corner from the hustle and bustle of Thamel, this family run business is real value for money. Clean, great food in-house, internet access and helpful staff (with very good English) make your stay easy at Ganesh Himal. In true Nepali style all the staff deliver their services with a smile that will lighten your day from the... More

The Ganesh Himal was awesome. The staff was kind, friendly, and competent; they were a huge reason the stay was such a delight. For the price, the accommodation was unbeatable: comfortable, clean, and with nice touches of character. The views from the rooftop are fantastic. I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough.

Namaste! My name is Ine Martens and I was in Kathmandu during the months June and July 2010 to supervise a project in Jorpati, which our Dutch foundation is supporting financially and which the local team is running on a day-to-day basis. I partly lived in the project and partly lived in Hotel Ganesh Himal, my second home in Nepal.... More

I stayed at the hotel twice, once in July and again in August. The hotel provides a free pick-up service from the airport which is a bonus and save you the NR400-500 a taxi would cost you. The hotel has a free Wi-Fi system which is restricted to the lobby area and a weak signal into the garden area. They... More

This hotel is about 10 minutes walk from central Thamel and makes it all the more quiet when trying to sleep without the battle of the bar bands on the doorstep. The rooms are spotless, modern and great value for money. Free internet and mineral water is a good perk. Only downside is that it is pretty popular and so... More
