Nice and friendly staff, good and well organised breakfast. There are 2 sets of rooms, one will need renovation, the second is up to Western standards. Recommended if you are looking for a quiet environment close to the Thamel area of Kathmandu.

I have been living in Nepal for over two years now and have stayed in hotels all over the country. Hotel Encounter is the best for your money in KTM. Accommodating staff, 24/7 hot water, generator, great outdoor sitting area, and adjacent to Thamel. You won't regret it!
