“A Hotel In Nepal,providing Personal Attention to Everey Individual.”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

I have been In Nepal First Time.The Hotel Encounter has a Nice Garden to Hang around.Specially the candle Light Dinner and the Food is Just ultimate.The Managing staff is Good and caring all the Time.Their guidance for the local tourist places/tour packages are really economical and if planning to stay in the Budget Hotel then really in Thamel it has no competitor.
I am really thankfull to Hotel's Director for managing so many things at the same time smoothly.
All my Best Wishesh to all the Staff members and the Director.

What a wonderful guesthouse that this place is. I was unsure of where to stay or places to visit and I opted to stay in Hotel Encounter through a friend recommendation.
From the moment of arrival, I was treated to amazing service direct from the owner, manager and all the other staff. I was in the Super Delux room at the rooftop and found it to be perfectly pleasant that I could see the city from the rooftop.The bed was clean, comfortable and made for a good nights sleep after along day of walking. The breakfasts comes complimentary and the hotel resturant is superb to try the local cusine. The manager was very kind to arrange for me to visit all the places in Kathmandu. All I have to say is that this is a fantastic hotel with excellent service and I am so glad to have chosen it to stay for my holidays.

Room Tip: Best room at the rooftop

This nice and friendly hotel gives every time a new dimension. Now starting Minibar in many rooms, a free wi-fi zone, next week the visitors can use a free laptop and free internet.
The food is very good. Because of loadshedding a big generator gives electricity during the off season and so the television is working. Now the renovate the garden. I hope to see the result in October 2011. Staff is friendly and give good information for the tourist of what they can do in Nepal. So I am very happy with this hotel.

Room Tip: Most rooms are quiet, the best view is in garden.

Someone took us to this hotel from the airport.
And we were happy that we found it.
It's a little bit north of Thamel, but the service makes the distance more than good. They arranged our rafting and trekking and we really had a good time.

We traveled to Nepal to see the sights as a family. Was looking for a reasonably priced, clean hotel in a safe location. We found all of the above at Hotel Encounter. We stayed on the roof and had the place to ourselves. Loved the garden and the open air. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise with great food and more than friendly service. Probably the most impressive part of our stay was the friendly and helpful service. The people at the hotel, from the front desk, to the cleaning staff to the management were great. We used the hotel to help arrange transportation and a guide around the city and they surpassed our expectations at a very reasonable price. They are presently updating the electricity to include a generator for when the power in the city is off. That will be a great addition.
For the price, location and atmosphere, the Hotel Encounter can't be beat. We'll be back our next time through Kathmandu.

We stayed there for 2 nights, just after arrival in Kathmandu. Our choise was based on LP review.
We did not book a room in advance and that was right, because price on there web site 3 times expensive. We choose deluxe room with ac and balcony with the great view on the valley for 23usd per day.
Hot water available all tha day, even if there is no electricity.
The room was not clean at all. Bed sheets have not been changed for years. So bring your own sheets.
Wifi Internet was available only in lobby and in the
restaurant but not in rooms and was VARY slow.
Food was ok. Stuff was really annoying offering tours and trekking.
So I not recommend to stay there, because there are a lot of less popular, cheaper and clean guesthouses in the area.
