“Loving place to stay!”
Reviewed November 16, 2008

It is a loving and great place to stay! I am traveling already for 15 years in Nepal and do work there also. When I do not have my one place I stay by Mukhiya the owner of Ganesh Himal. In all those years he also up graded his Hotel. They always will try to do the best and whenever, for all things you can ask him or the staff. Now with free internet and a travel agent in his hotel it is more comfortable and of caurse rooms are cleaned everyday and YES warm water. Now with the power cut he got a generator so even then there is light and a warm shower, what do you want more and then the prices are not high at all! Most important, why we are in Nepal on the roof terras a great vieuw and a nice garden and do not forget the perfect situation, just out of Thamel, close to Monkey Tempel and Durbar Square. Just the place to stay in Kathmandu!

Hi,
I have stayed at Ganesh Himal for over three weeks and I can only say good things about my stay.
The rooms are fantastic, the staff is very friendly and professional and the food is great.
I will certainly miss the hotel and its wonderfull crew, brilliantly managed by Maya.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart to the receptionists, cleaners, chef, waiters and security personel.

Namaste!

In total we stayed 6 nights at The Ganesh Himal Hotel in Kathmandu. We didn't experience any problems with the staff or service provided by the hotel. The Hotel provided the services as advertised on their website and we felt it was conveniently located away from the bustle of Tamel but not to far from the local market.

  • Liked — The availabilty of hot water 24 hours a day
  • Disliked — The room was dark when accessing the Internet

Hotel Ganesh Himal is much nicer than other similarly priced hotels we have stayed at in the region. Our room (deluxe) had full bath (with a bathtub!) with 24 hour hot water, satellite TV, a comfortable queen bed, and daily room service, and good quality towels, pillows, sheets, and blankets. The hotel restaurant is good, and the staff always friendly and helpful, including the travel desk person. There are three computers with internet (less than US$1 per hour) and a wireless modem. The location is a short five minute walk from the southern edge of Thamel, with its tourist shops and restaurants. Well off a busy street, the hotel is very quiet for Kathmandu (the main noises we heard were birdsong, dogs barking, and kids playing at a neighborhood school), and its beautiful, peaceful, and large garden is a delightful place to dine or relax. We felt so comfortable here that we ended up staying for 12 days!

Picked us up at the airport as promised. We had just booked 1 night so we could check it out. Good value for money at $17, decent room, hot water, nice courtyard. Just as noisy as anywhere else in Kathmandu. While not miles away from the facilities of Thamel, it is down a rather dingy dark side street (saw 2 rats, 1 alive, 1 dead) and you have to negotiate a bit of traffic on the way, not ideal for walking home at night so we decided to switch to the more centrally located Kathmandu Guest House for the rest of our stay.

Stayed December 2007

Ganesh Himal Hotel at Chhetrapati near Thamel/Kathmandu is one of the best place to stay , i and my wife was there on 30th Oct. 2007 till 13th nov. 2007.The place is clean-very clean and neat, rooms have a good views and food is nice and reasonably priced .

The staffs led by Madame Maya Gurung, were very ,very helpful and we had a good time there .Its not my first visit to Kathmandu but after being introduced to Ganesh Himal Hotel,and should i return next year or in future, then this is the place for my accomodation.

The staffs made alot of effort to make your day and very helpful. I felt that we are not treated like just another guest but they go a further extra mile to serve you and makes you feel very ,very comfortable.

The place is very peaceful and to have your breakfast,lunch or dinner at the garden is absolutely very relaxing.Its is a good place to unwind yourself after walking through the busy roads of Thamel or Kathmandu

Maya Gurung and her staffs are always ready to give you good hotel services,advises and guidances for trekking ,visits etc and above all good value for your money during your stay at Ganesh Himal Hotel .

To Ganesh Himal Hotel- Keep up the good work and well done .3 Cheers to you
