Lonely Planet review

This faded place to the north of Thamel suffers from crummy decor and overpriced rates but has some OK rooms. The best old-block rooms are sunny and spacious, and the spiffier new block across the garden has some nice air-conditioned deluxe corner rooms with balcony views over the valley. You take your life in your hands crossing diabolical Lekhnath Marg to get here.

Our independent authors have visited Hotel Encounter Nepal and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kathmandu.
