We are verry happy with the room. We enjoy hot water and Air condition, the rooms are verry clean and pretty, and the wooden floor gives a cosy atmosphere. There is also a beautiful garden, free wifi and Security 24 hours. The Location is quiet and the people are verry friendly.

I have stayed in many hotels in Kathmandu and this is the best I have encountered. Rooms are clean and comfortable without the musty smell of some hotels I stayed before. Management and staff were very friendly and even went the extra mile to send us to the airport personally. The bar/restaurant is cosy with a warm fireplace to sit by and relax away from the chaos of Thamel. Location was good to nearby Thamel for shopping. Would stay there again.

Yes indeed. Did I have problems? Never! How was the food? Terrace/bar/restaurant food was brilliant, tasty, fresh, and customers could easily ask for special dishes or beverages, like John's Hot Toddy! The gardens/terrace? Given the chaotic nature of Thamel, it was always a pleasure to get back there and just sit in the sun. How was the noise? If you don't like children's voices singing nursery rhymes, or the ringing of temple bells at dawn, hey, that's life in KTM! The rooms? basic, but always clean. HOT, hot water every morning! Staff? Yes they had staff, all of them always smiling, laughing, joking, working hard to give customers what they ask for. If you want a great receptionist, just go to the desk and ask for Natini .... yup, there's a family connection, I'm her International Baje. if you want comedy, try Uttam in the bar evenings most days!

Room Tip: if you want cool, try A/C rooms. If you're cold ask for a heater. Rooms facing out over the cour...

Hotel Encounter provides the perfect escape from the hectic energy of Thamel. Situated on the edge of the tourist district it provides all the convenience of being near the shopping and restaurant precinct while still allowing for a peaceful nights sleep. The rooms are clean and comfortable with stunning views over the city. Hot water and free wifi are added benefits that make for such a pleasant stay. The staff are all extremely friendly and go out of their way to provide any assistance required. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 304 has a fantastic view over the city
