“Mates, couples and family's looking for a very clean, great place to stay in the heart of Thamel”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We stayed at hotel Encounter three times while we were on holiday in Nepal. They offer awesome single, double and family room sat the best prices we found for a hotel in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu. Their hotel tourism organiser Llama organised all our domestic flights and holiday/trekking needs to both Everest and Annapurna cheaper then any company we found on the streets. I highly recommend this place for anyone coming to Nepal.

What does guests need is serive +care and I when I was in encounter I felt as my home sweet home. First impression is the last so u will not even get a complain from your check in to check out , I think most of the hotels can't provide as much facilities as encounter can provide . Well here is airport pick ups and drops , staffs are very helpful , food is amazingly Nepal , rooms are clean and secured , free Internet and best monetary value and many more. Ohhh the most amazing thing is the garden when it's night time to camp fire and all the people getting together for dinner is the best moment of my part . Mr pramod the most caring and systematic man who helped me for most of the packages of tours with great discount . Once ur here pls meet him u will also have a memeorable event living in encounter Nepal .

Room Tip: Top floor super delux of new building well the most preferable one

Standard room was okay. Pretty hard beds. Garden, food and staff were very nice. Car + driver for a day to see the surroundings: overpriced! Allthough we had a very lovely day! We can recommand this place!
