This was my fourth stay at Hotel Encounter Nepal (HEN). I have been blessed to travel all around the world, and all across Nepal and I must start by saying that the staff of HEN make me feel about as much at home as is possible.
I have now spent 2 months at this hotel (in 4 visits). Getting to know the staff including Badri, Hari, Dipen, & Subash has been a blessing. The staff here at HEN has gone out of their way to take care of me during each of my visits.
HEN is located right outside Thamel’s main thoroughfare. It offers a bit more solitude and quiet than most other hotels with the added benefit of being just a block away from the “tourist action”. If you have ever been to Vegas, this is like being a block off the strip (where you can sleep but still go and see things without hassle). When I first stayed here the hotel was under renovation. Each time I have come back I have noticed remarkable improvements in amenities and cleanliness. Regardless of what you need, the staff of HEN is quick to offer their help. I have stayed at several other hotels in the area and while the others where nice, HEN is the best of them all.
Once you find a place that is clean, secure, and helpful, you really don’t feel the need to continue looking. Thats the case for me. I will likely continue using HEN for each of my future visits. I cannot recommend this hotel enough.
