Lonely Planet review
Our pick for comfort on a budget is this well-run and friendly place. The rooms are among the best value in Kathmandu, with endless hot water and lots of balcony and garden seating. Throw in free airport pick-up and this place is hard to beat, even if the booking system gets a bit overwhelmed at times.
The best standard rooms are in the new block (and are the sunniest in winter). The deluxe rooms are more spacious and a little quieter and the spacious super-deluxe rooms have brick floors. It's located a 10-minute walk southwest of Thamel – far enough to be out of range of the tiger-balm salesmen but close enough to restaurants for dinner. Here’s a tip: bring earplugs, as the residential neighbourhood can be noisy.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Ganesh Himal and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kathmandu.
