A warm welcome from really lovely staff. Nice comfortable room. Not much difference between standard and delux. Rooms in original hotel nicer and brighter than of those in extension.

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 :-) ).

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... More

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

“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!”
