I absolutely love this hotel. I visited twice, in May and November 16 and both times, I was overwhelmed by the kindness and willingness of the staff to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The warmth of everyone from the lovely men at the gate, reception staff, managers and even the cleaners is remarkable. It's amazing value and a...

This was my 7th trip to Nepal and each time I'm in Kathmandu I stay at Hotel Ganesh Himal. This is my home away from home. Just a short walk to the bustling Thamel area, Durbar square and Monkey temple, Ganesh Himal is close enough, yet far enough away for peace and quiet. The garden is beautiful, balcony on each...

This is my second trip to Nepal, first stay at Hotel Ganesh Himal. It was an excellent choice. I stayed three days before continuing to Pokhara. The staff is accommodating and friendly. The lovely garden is a great place to relax after a day out on the town.

This hotel has a great location because it's within walking distance to Thamel but it isn't in the tourist hustle and bustle of Thamel. The walk is great because you can experience day to day Nepali life going on around you as you explore the area. The staff are friendly, helpful, courteous and responsive. Plenty of staff speak fluent English...

I Stayed here two nights before my trip to Bhutan and one night on the way back home. I found this hotel much quieter in comparison with others hotels from Thamel with good service , staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. Garden behind main building helps you to get relaxed. Stay here.

I am amazed to see how one can get such a nice hotel in such a reasonable price. Undoubtly, I cannot find such a beautiful hotel with nice room and garden to relax with such good price.

As a Nepali traveler I chose to stay in this hotel after being suggested by one of my friends because I was always looking for a quiet hotel near Thamel and I got exactly what I wanted. Can't help with out thanking such friendly staffs and their hospitality who made me feel home.

What’s not to like about Ganesh Himal. The staff are obliging and very friendly. The garden is a lovely space to relax in. The food is good. It’s reasonably priced. I’ve been here twice and on both counts I have found it to be uncomfortably cold in the room/s. Plenty of hot water just cold. It would help if staff...
