This hotel was recommended to us by our son-in law, we booked 3 nights on-line prior to our departure, arranged pick up by the hotel from the airport which was free and had no problems with either. We found the rooms basic but very clean, the staff very friendly and accomodating. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is in... More

I've stayed here twice during my Nepal visit and will a third. It's well located with shopping right out the front door, but it's set back from the hustle/bustle so it's a nice oasis. Clean rooms with hot showers and CNN. Wifi works great. What is really great is the outdoor restaurant with lush vines and flowers. Staff is very... More

I am at Hotel Encounter right now, enjoying a great meal and the beautiful courtyard. The hotel is clean, staff is wonderful, friendly, and will go to any lengths to accommodate guests. Hotel Encounter is a haven of peace in the middle of a busy city! Definitely recommend staying here!

Great location, friendly staff, spacious and clean rooms. The hotel is close to most interesting places in Kathmandu. Pramod is a really nice guy who helped us with all our issues. Food was good, breakfast buffet was nice.

I visited Nepal as a part of 15 person team to do missionary work. Our stay at the Encounter Hotel was wonderful. The staff went to every length to make our stay comfortable. They endured that our travel arrangements were safe and even went and got ice cream for us. I can't recommend the Encounter Hotel too highly.

If you need a nice break from the chaos of Kathmandu, check out the restaurant at the Encounter and request Bihm serve you. He is kind, attentive and accommodating. He was the best part of our stay here. The hotel itself is average but the restaurant and the service were all great!

We ended up staying here a few different times during our trip and left bags there while we were trekking. All staff was very friendly and helpful, standard room was fine, nothing fancy, plenty of hot water and internet always worked. Pramod was extremely helpful in booking flights/bus reservation to Pokhara. Would definitely stay again!

Rooms were clean and room service was perfect. I went here second time and staff uttam was once again very gentle friendly. I recommend and it would be a good shelter for trekkers. They bring you food and everything to rooms.
