Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2014

The location is nice, just next to Thamel. I really liked the restaurant/bar area outside as well. Staff was friendly and they can help you to organize tours/trips. The food was good. Room was clean and quiet enough and the air-con worked well. WIFI was working well.

Hotel Encounter Neapl is an oasis away from the dust and noise of Kathmandu. Grand on the outside and quaint in the inside The room is bright and airy and the staff were very friendly. The room was clean and well maintained and our bathroom was brand new and the rooms were clean.I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Encounter Nepal very much. Boss Pramod Gajurel is very friendly and attentive to the needs of guest. I recommend Hotel to travelers that want old world charm to rest and relax in middle of crazy Kathmandu.A good stay for a reasonable price.

Room Tip: room 302 top floor is gret view

Mr Narahar Shresha the restaurant manager watches everything coming out of his kitchen to ensure quality. The Kathmandu Grilled Restaurant is top notch. The have a wide variety to match western & eastern tastes. Uttam Lama takes good care of the guests at the bar and also your food orders either at the table or taking up to your room always with a smile & courtesy. The house keeping staff keep my room very sparkling. I am on a budget and the price is outstanding for everything. I love Kathmandu & The Hotel Encounter.
