This hotel is in a good, quiet location in North Thamel.  It's a good budget option, with decent rooms.  We stayed in the older building which is set back from the road.  The staff was helpful with requests and there's a good restaurant attached to the hotel.  If you can find a good rate it's a great value option. It's... More

What I like most about this place is that it has the most relaxing garden in the middle of the city. The location is far enough from the backpacker area so it is quiet and peaceful, but near enough to get to the "scene" in 5minutes. They have the most wonderful and helpful staff, always greeting you with a smile.... More

I was looking for a reasonable priced middle class hotel and I was very happy with my choice of the 'Encounter Nepal'. I found it very good 'value for money' and the patio of the Encounter Nepal is certainly nice! Mr. Pramod the manager was very helpful and supportive and I was happy with everything he organized for me :-)

this is the only hotel we stayed in with a booking during our holiday in Nepal, mainly because it comes out first on tripadvisor's rating search results, and also because of its complementary pickup, variety of tour related services, reasonable rates, and most of all, its smart staff. They are all ready to help when I want to buy a... More

Good clean big rooms, my friends got one with the bath in the bathroom! Very nice restaurant in the small garden, authentic environment and rich but not expensive menu. The price... More

There Was a minor mix up with our booking but the hotel really went out of their way to accommodate us and put everything right. The staff were family friendly and able to... More

If you have never been to Nepal then this is the hotel to stay in. Nepal is a BEAUTIFUL country to visit, but unfortunately the simple comforts we enjoy in the U.S. are not available here. This hotel is the best at satisfying those simple comforts we forget about. A couple examples are electricity and wifi; in Nepal, the electricity... More

My family along with my mother stayed at the HOTEL ENCOUNTER NEPAL for 6 wonderful nights. The staff is excellent, just the right amount of everything. Hotel common areas are lovely, and roof top garden enhances your stay. Service from staff is beyond compare! Hard to explain, but everything was just right. Not too pushy, it's like they knew when...
