Delicious food. Free airport transfer. Big clean rooms with hot water and 24/7 power thanks to their enormous generator. Fast WiFi plus several computers in the lobby. Stunning garden and the rooftop is a great place to down a few everest beers. I love it.

Ganesh Himal is probably the best place to stay in Kathmandu. We stayed there twice - in November and in December, after finished trekking. The staff are fantastic, the food in the little restaurant is far better, diverse and affordable than anywhere else. However the rooms are not quite consistent - both times we stayed in the same room category...

The service was excellent from the kitchen staff. hot water was available the whole time we were there. The internet was patchy, but electricity was always available even during load shedding.

Stayed for 3 nights before a trek and 4 nights before flying out. Very comfortable in Nepali standards. Standard room for 20USD first time around was small but did the trick. We were told we wouldn't need to reserve our room for the second time around as they wouldn't be full this time of year (January) and they were full...

And we found it at Hotel Ganesh Himal. Great quality of rooms, warm water at all times, helpfull staff, lush garden en quiet rooftop terrace. Just outside of...

The hotel is small and intimatebut there is little restaurant in the garden and the food didnt kill me.I met several people who were regulars which is a very good sign I...

A comfortable room with great staff at reception who helped plan a 2 day trip away with less than 12 hours notice. We just said where we wanted to go and they organised it. Very efficient! Location is good - walk one direction into the main Thamel stretch.... or the opposite way to Kathmandu Durbar Square. 10-15 mins walk in...

The room was large and bathroom good. Unfortunately our room smelt of the fumes from the generator. This also made it difficult to sit outside in the garden when the generator was on. The towels were also damp and mouldy. Prior to our trek we did like being away from the main hustle however upon a return and staying in...

The hotel is good and there is free wi fi even inside the rooms. The accommodation is quite simple and just like in the rest of Kathmandu electric energy is not always available. The staff receives you with a nice cup of tea. The hotel have a very beautiful garden where you can have breakfast and a really taste dinner,...
