Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’ve stayed at Himalayan Ghar on two separate occasions now and both times it’s been great. It’s conveniently located in the heart of Thamel yet set back from the main street. The rooms are tastefully decorated with traditional touches and come with a range of amenities, including toiletries and a mini bar. Breakfast is also served on their lovely rooftop terrace. The service is friendly and the staff will be very happy to help arrange taxis, offer advice on day trips, etc. I’d highly recommend Himalayan Ghar as an affordable and convenient place to stay in Thamel.

Great hotel close to the (touristic) centre Thamel. Very nice rooms (with mini bar), great bed and good shower and toilet facilities. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel lies in a quiet location at just a few minutes walking from Thamel. I’ve stayed in a number of hotels (in the same price range) during my stay in Nepal, but Himalyan Ghar was by far the best. Great value for money!

I had the opportunity to stay in Himalayan Ghar several times. Each time it felt like coming home again. The location, the facilities, the cleanliness, the breakfast, the roof top, the staff, the management - all of these points deserve 10 out of 10 points. Highly recommended!

I paid for a week and after the second night the air conditioner stopped working. I spoke to the front desk early the next morning, but in the afternoon they said they did not know when it would be fixed. I asked for another room and they said "no, fully booked", although I could have booked one via Booking.com (who BTW won't even respond to my messages. So, I just booked a room on another hotel and though I'll eat the loss, I won't spoil our vacation. The owner/manager does not give a damn about guests, and there are many other hotels. STAY AWAY from THIS PLACE!!!!!!

The kitchen is every housewife's dream. and sincerely wanted to take the chest in the bedroom with me) when I fly to Kathmandu again, the question of where to stay will no longer be. what a pleasure it is

Great budget friendly hotel in KTM Thamel district, tucked away on a quiet street, great value for money and location, super friendly staff! Stayed for 2 nights after my Everest region trek, then made a few short overnight trips, then returned for another night before my flight back home.

We stayed here for three nights. Hotel is located on a quiet street just a short walk from Thamel tourist area and a longer walk to Durbar square. Breakfast was made to order. Although there were limited choices, it was fresh and tasty.  Our room was very clean and good sized, with a comfortable bed and clean bedding. The room itself was rather dark due to the fact that the window was facing a big wall just a half meter away. Not like the photos. Our closet smelled very strongly of moth balls, so we decided not to hang our things in it. Bathroom was clean with a good shower.  The staff was very friendly and helpful. The one thing I would strongly advice against is getting a shuttle arranged. Our experience was not good both times we tried. Since we arrived at midnight we thought it was a good idea for an airport transfer to be arranged in advance from the hotel. The cost was $10 USD. To our surprise an old decrepit and dirty van was waiting for us. I looked around and couldn’t find any other vehicle in this state of disrepair at the airport. Many new or newer taxis though. Where this came from will remain a mystery to me! The combination of constant potholes and condition of the vehicle made our ride to hotel really uncomfortable if not painful. I would never recommend this for people with mobility issues or neck / back problems. Knowing what I know now, I would just get a taxi on arrival. Our next experience with the hotel's transportation was when we enquired about a transport to Nagarkot. A friendly front desk staffer informed us that he has to call his manager. It sounded normal until the manager asked where we were from and upon hearing our country of origin, he inflated his price accordingly. Since the price sounded high we declined and went to a first corner where we were able to negotiate our price to a half of the manager's price with a first random cab driver.  For some reason I thought it was a service any hotel would provide - not a money making enterprise! Also lesson learned that next time I will pay closer attention to reviewers with one or two reviews only. Would I stay next time? Honestly, I think there are better options.
