The courtyard provides respite from the city and a variety of local and western dishes are offered. The room was fairly small but the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean but fairly basic though the shower was hot with decent pressure

Had a brilliant first trekking experience in Solukhumbu in May 2014 with a warm send off from Raj and the guys at Hotel Encounter Nepal in Thamel. We love their hotel and hospitality and as other reviews say, it is a special respite from the endearing but tiresome frenzy of Thamel district, with its noise and pollution.

The reality is that Thamel isn't quiet, nor clean. Given this fact, Hotel Encounter Nepal is a serene retrieve from the Thamel madness. It has a gorgeous garden area, a first-class restaurant, open-air environment, different rooms (room-rates) and an extremely helpful and friendly staff. As well, the staff will happily arrange trips, airport pick-up and manage any questions or difficulties...

Staff - front desk, restaurant and everyone else I dealt with; Always ready to meet or exceed your expectations, and with a smile. Minor problems were resolved promptly. A tourist agent, (not from this hotel), played smart by taking some extra money for his services. Upon mentioning this to Pramod Gajurel, Executive Director, he suggested me to call that agent...

Our trip to Nepal started from this hotel and I would say it wasn't a good first impression. The room seemed so old, and not that clean. However after staying for couple of days in Nepal you realize you need to manage your expectations. It won't be a 5-star vacation with the power-cuts, dogs barkings, dusty smoke everywhere, bad roads,...
