Situated a little off the street, this hotel is very clean, bathroom very modern, the staff is very nice and the location is great, just at the entrance of Thamel. They are two buildings, and we stayed in the new one, so cannot comment on the older one.

Great place to stay in Kathmandu on our short stay at Encounter hotel, was memorable. Warm welcome for the guests made us feel more comfortable. Impressive suite, food yet the service was good I loved it. Clean rooms, spa, morning espresso and garden to stick around was unquestionably treat for us.

My gf and I stayed a few nights. Located near Thamel and tucked in a quiet area which is good. Great breakfast, Comfy beds and very helpful staff. Bathroom drain smelled up the room but that didn't bother our stay. We enjoyed our time there and will always return if passing thru KTM. Ricky and Gia USA
