It was our first family visit to Nepal. It was my furtune that I encounterd the Hotel Encounter Nepal there beside Thamel. I had a very pleasant stay there. The hotel is run by the executive director and owner as well Mr. Pramod Gajurel . He was very helpful and friendly and treated me as a brother not as a tourist. He managed a package tour for us ( POKHARA & CHITWAN) at a reasonable cost with hotel car all through.
The location of the hotel is unbeatable, 5 minute walk far from hustle and bustle tourist hub Thamel, next to a school and local shops that cater for real people not tourists. Hotel has green gardern with seasonal flowers which really refreshes you after your busy day-sightseeing . Very friendly and polite staffs and Driver Birendra was very honest and punctual all along.
Indeed, this was the hotel which I found beyond my expectation. It offers you all kind of facility like WIFI, computer hall, newspapers, consultancy about adventure trip etc at free of cost. Rooms are spotless with necessary equipment like A/C, TV, refrigerator etc , plenty of hot water in bathrooms, clean cotton feel bed-sheets and towels , soft pillows etc. Morning breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent all the time. Hotel has its own restaurant in the same premises, We had chicken tanduri and naan many times which was very delicious as of I had in India’s top hotels. Except these all, Mr. Pramod and his staffs caring and hospitality was worth much more than what I paid for. Thanks Pramodji your presence has given a beautiful life to Encounter.
I recommended to all to visit Hotel Encounter Nepal.
