The big positive about this hotel is the location - its only 2 minutes walk from the chaos of central Thamel down a quiet street but it feels a world away. Unlike other back streets it also feels safe at night. It also has a really nice courtyard which is candle lit at night. However beyond these positives, it is...

It has perfect location and varieties of rooms of course very clean and cozy. Food is very good with options of...

I spent a number of weeks staying at Hotel Ganesh Himal staying in three different rooms. The workers in reception were always welcoming and happily looked after some of my bags when I went off on different multi-day trips to Langtang Valley and Pokhara. All of the mattresses I slept on were comfortable. The rooftop and balconies areas are spacious...

I stayed here for about 5 days and it was a wonderful place to end my trip to Nepal. The staff were friendly and kind, and the rooms were very comfortable and had heaters if you got cold. The beds have multiple blankets so I rarely needed the heater. The shower has super good water pressure, and the hot water...

We bring student groups to Nepal every other year, and the Ganesh Himal is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in in my life. The beds are deliciously soft and comfortable, the garden is magnificent, there is an excellent restaurant on the premises, and Thamel with all its restaurants and shopping is only 5 minutes' walk away....

They are spectacular, the people who run the hotel and work here are very very kind. They are always making sure that we have everything we need. I would highly recommend everyone stay here. It is super close to the city while being tucked away and quiet.

I came here on a trip with my study abroad and loved the place. We stayed at three different hotels and this was the nicest that we stayed at. The hotel is far enough from the main road you aren't listening to the city all night but still only a 5 minute walk from Thamel. Rooms all have heated water...
