We started our Nepal trip with this lovely KTM central space and would happily come back. The personal service from the restaurant even bringing us morning coffee or a meal to our rooftop room was exceptional as was the casual hanging out in the garden below. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. It is off from the road enough to be quiet and restful. It was cleaned when we requested and fresh towels as needed. The balcony and rooftop views were great and we even glimpsed the sacred Ganesh Himal mountain on one particularly clear morning. The garden is very lovely and power cables for computers are abundant without needing any adapters. Be prepared to go up and down stairs as is common in all of Nepal. Wifi was a bit patchy as I was trying to finish some work before trekking but management was doing the best they could with some occasional storms knocking out power. Food was good and well accommodated gluten-free needs. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit, eggs and great fried potatoes with veggies for options. It was easy to catch taxis and even rickshaws to the local nearby sites. Great as a budget hotel but met all our needs beyond. We would gladly come back and will upon our return to Kathmandu!

I just LOVED it. Hotel Ganesh Himal is heaven within the hell of Thamel. It is absolutely beautiful. The Garden, an oasis of serenity, perfect for soothing the nerves and relaxing body and mind. The lobby is a work of art with handpainted murals and carved wooden doors and... Loving touches everywhere! There is also a wonderful communal space on the generous balconies. The owner and staff are just wonderful. So helpful, so forthcoming. The Ganesh Himal was my home away from home in Kathmandu. Whenever I returned to Kathmandu I stayed there. In room 303. It might be a strange thing to say, but the Hotel Ganesh Himal was one of the highlights of my trip to Nepal. You have to see it, to understand. The rooms are ok, by the way but trust me, it's not about the rooms, it's about everything.

Best place to stay in Katmandou. Beautyful garden to have a dink with snacks after a long trek. Nice people. Large bedrooms. Large and comfortable bed. Reasonnable prices. Ideal to visit Tamel without the nightlife noise. The best place to me in Katmandou. You must stay there

I was really surprised this was on our list of approved hotels for the organisation i work for as we always have budget places. It sure was amazing and really luxurious for the price. A little bit further walk out to get right into town but was really nice and quiet and the gardens were beautiful.

I stayed at Ganesh Himal during the autumn of 2019 for some weeks and I found it to be what I wanted - a peaceful place, whit a very service minded staff. The garden restaurant was the best, with the very nice Siri Pandey in charge for the restaurant staff! I had a very pleasant stay! Håkan Grissler Sweden

We enjoyed our 4 nights stay during our Nepal tour with round Annapurna trek. They let us store our extra luggage in the store room and offered us welcome drinks every day which made us feel homely. We ate lunch and dinner at the hotels nice garden courtyard and food was good and the price was reasonable. We indeed recommend this hotel and we will come again.

Hotel Ganesh Himal has a special place in my heart after just one visit! The hotel itself is beautiful, has the cutest little garden connected to the restaurant and the most stunning view from the rooftop. The small little balconies on the side of the hotel is perfect hidden spaces. All of these places gives you a chance to relax in the midst of busy Kathmandu. The rooms are nice and clean, and the staff is extremely helpful with anything that you might need - just ask!
