Hidden Gem with Lush Garden and Fine Service

Posted Jun 25, 2016 on Hotels
I am a returning guest of many years. I won't stay anywhere else in Kathmandu. I have been to Nepal 23 times and I choose to stay at the Encounter. The partner hotel Norbu Linka is under restoration which is another fine choice. Best masala tea in Nepal.

Hidden Gem in Kathmandu

Hotel Encounter is across the road from the busy Thamel area. It is centrally located and very easy to find. The atmosphere is tranquil and peaceful. The staff go above and beyond to help the guests. I will be back next week!

good standard, reasonably priced

Posted Nov 27, 2015 on Hotels
for the usual standard in this price range and region was the hotel a shining star. staff friendly and helpfull, hot water in the shower, comfortable bed and restaurant with good food offer. also room servis was available. Though do not expect lift and eye for detail in terms of the room finish. The location is pretty much in Thamel, though just 2 minutes away from it, which i believe assures a bit quieter sleep. I would return if I shall come back to Kathmandu

Comfortable and beautiful

Posted Nov 5, 2015 on Hotels
Friendly and helpful staff, we were upgraded to a deluxe room, very nice with big windows. The only issue is the Bell right outside that rings from 4 am on. I recommend ear plugs. Also, you have to cross a busy, scary street to get to the center of Thamel. The restaurant area is beautiful and the food is delicious. There is a spa and travel agent on site. the best hotel for the price.

Location: 若干中心よりは北になるが、タメルチョークから歩いて5分ほど。十分近いと思いますし、夜中は静かで良かったと思います。

room description is WRONG

Posted Sep 25, 2015 on Hotels
The listed description for the Standard room on Hotels.com is very WRONG. What is listed is the deluxe room description. The standard room is in the hostel wing, not the hotel. Arrived to find a tiny twin-bed, fan room with combo toilet/shower closet. Fine if I was going for a hostel, but not at all the described room. Kudos to the hotel management who upgraded me to a deluxe room I thought I had based on the description.
