There was a hotel I had in mind but the taxi driver from the airport said it wasn't in the main city so I quickly fell for it and went with his recommendation; although he did say we can still look around if I decide to stay here or not. At first I didn't want to stay here because the... More

Hotel is ok for budget stay. Free breakfast was delicious as well. It is near the market and some bars. The staff in the hotel were friendly and nice. We arranged all our tours with them including our tour in Pokhara. Upon arriving in Pokhara, everything was arranged including our hotel. Sending my regards to everyone in Hotel Encounter :)...

Great place for a budget stay. We got great discount and room was nice, with hot water, free wifi and comfortable beds. Ask for a room that faces inside the hotel, it's gonna be quiet. First we got the room that was facing the street and it was noisy. The management was very nice and changed the room for as... More

I have used this hotel about five times over the last four years and arrived again this afternoon for another visit. I was given a very clean room with good facilities at the same rate I have had since 2012. They just asked me what I had paid in the past and i got it again, but haven't been there... More

I loved staying here: The staff of the restaurant and the hotel are so friendly and will go out of their way to help you. They can organize trekking for you - and trekking lite :) - which is what I need. The restaurant has great food. The hotel is an amazing value for a double room with private bath.... More

I had a great stay at the hotel last November. The service was as good as any 5 star hotel at which I have stayed. Breakfast was pleasant in the courtyard every morning, and we ended the night by the fire pit in the same place. The food from the restaurant was excellent! The rooms were adequate for the area...

Always stay in this hotel when in Nepal for their garden territory. Very quiet. And even if you stay in, there are lots of places you can just relax, read or browse the Internet :). When we were leaving, they were also in the process of building their own SPA, so next time I visit I may enjoy it as... More

Free airport pickup is great, sorry for the guy who was waiting there for a very long time due to all kinds of delays at Kathmandu airport. The breakfast in not included but doesn't cost too much and is excellent. The rooms were ok, nothing great but it had everything we needed and for a budget price. Location is quiet... More

I stayed here for several days in March. The included airport pickup was great to avoid the hassle and screaming match of the taxi drivers on arrival. During the time of my stay they had construction going on on the ground level of the side building. So a bit dusty and noisy. My room was big and clean enough. Don't... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our Kathmandu trip. Rooms are basic and clean and the best valued place we stayed at in Nepal during our 2 week trip. I highly recommend this place. Pros: - Location. Just on the top end of Thamal without being in the middle of it. The restaurant /courtyard provide some peace... More
