The rooms are spacious and the hotel staff bring fresh towels and clean the rooms on a daily basis. Since my last visit a large restaurant has been added serving a selection of International...

Food hit and miss. I would not try a breakfast again. No problem getting refund though. Very convenient to Thamel area but nice to come away from it. Beautiful garden and...

Myself and a friend stayed one night at this hotel. It was very clean, the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, especially the sales manager Pranav, who talked to me for nearly 2 hours about the history of Nepal (at my request :-) ). Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to be outside the craziness that is the...

This was my 5th stay at Hotel Ganesh Himal and each time is like I'm coming home. All the staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The hotel is located just outside of Thamel, however it is only a 5 minute walk to the main tourist area. Durbar square is also a short walk away and it's 15-20 minutes to the...

I've stayed at this hotel 3 times, love the peaceful courtyard, great food honestly one of the best Dal Bhats I've ever had in Nepal, and of course the clean room. Free airport pick for international guests staying two or more nights is a nice touch

My wife and I loved this hotel. A little bit more money than some hostels in Kathmandu but totally worth it for the comfort and friendliness of the staff.

“Standard double”

“We accidentally went into one of the suites on our second stay; I'm not sure about the price increase for that room but it looked amazing! Our room still had air conditioning, but the windows opened out onto a fairly grim alleyway with lots of pigeons. I guess watch for the right hand side rooms if this bothers you!”
