Hotel Ganesh Himal

Experience Nepal's Timeless Hospitality.

Hotel Ganesh Himal, located in the bustling neighborhood of Thamel in Kathmandu, offers a range of accommodation options to suit every budget and preference. Whether you're looking for a comfortable and affordable stay or a luxurious and indulgent experience, we have got you covered. Our rooms are thoughtfully designed to provide our guests with the utmost comfort and convenience, featuring modern amenities and stylish decor that reflect the vibrant culture of Nepal. Our commitment to exceptional service, combined with our prime location in the heart of the city, makes us the ideal choice for both business and leisure travelers.

After a long hard-work for many years in the past, Mukhiya Gurung's father was able to buy a small piece of land in Chhetrapati where he built a small house for his family. Chhetrapati lies at the border of Thamel, the main tourist area in Kathmandu with lots of little shops, restaurants and bars. After many years now, Gurung's family has been able to transform that small house gradually into a modern and cozy hotel with 50 rooms.

Today Mukhiya Gurung and his team have tried to set up their hotel as comfortable as possible with a large green garden, a spacious and sunny rooftop, and several quiet balconies at every floor. Most of the hotel's rooms are decorated in typical Nepali and Newari style with wooden floors, wooden furniture and colorful details. Of course, there is a 24-hour guarantee for the supply of hot running water and electricity. But we also offer many other facilities which are well described in the services page. Through all the years, Gurung and his team have been striving to stand as the best budget hotel in Nepal, providing quality services at very reasonable and competitive prices! The hotel is still run by Gurung, his wife Maya, and a great team of loyal and hardworking staff.
