The location of the hotel is wonderful, it is right outside the busy Thamel area. The hotel itself and the rooms are clean and the hotel has a nice garden with bar and restaurant. The staff are kind and they are really helpfull. I traveled here during the pandamic and they helped me with getting tested for covid and all the rest that was needed.

We spent in this hotel six days at the end of March. We were received very affably at the time when for problems with COVID-19 our flight was canceled and we couldn´t leave the hotel because of lockdown. All of staff took care of us very helpfully. The hotel is comfortable, clean, tidy, with the nice wiev of Káthmándú of the roof terrace and the pleasing garden. Very good cuisine.

Hotel Encounter is having a great location and friendly employees. They have helped me to arrange my visits to the main attractions as well as dropping me to the airport. As I went to Pokhara as well, I left my luggage with them, and they took care of it.
