Arrived with my two friends for a 3-4 day stay in Kathmandu. The Hotel Encounter was our choice, since I had already had a good experience in September. It was even better than before! A real haven amidst the honking, dusty, crazy streets of the city. You feel the relief as soon as you walk through the iron gates into the beautiful greenery and flowers of the front courtyard. The staff comes welcoming each traveller personally like old friends. They just go to all extent to please the guests - friendly and helpful. My friends wanted a room with a view (within our restricted budget) and they very accommodatingly set us up on the top floor in a large double, adding a third bed for us. It not only has a great view, but gives onto a huge terrace with plants and seats to rest in the sun. The food may not be top gourmet, but the staff is so willing to please by making the dish the way you ask and everything is fresh and tasty. The eating area is like a tropical garden and very pleasant to sit and read or internet as well. The Hotel Encounter is really a gem and I believe it is time everyone knew about this wonderful, affordable place in the middle of Thamel in Kathmandu.
