Reviewed 4 December 2013

I love Kathmandu and there's nowhere better to stay than Dwarika's Hotel.

The hotel oozes charm, with reclaimed antique architecture, tasteful and exquisite rooms, exceptional character, and despite being in the middle of the city, it's quiet and peaceful.

My only complaint is that the wi-fi costs more than a double room in a hotel around the corner that has free wi-fi! Come on, Dwarika's, it's 2013 and you shouldn't be charging for wi-fi!

On entering, you immediately feel away from the hustle and bustle of the street outside as the hotel environment is so relaxing. Rooms are large. Service is exemplary even by typically high Asian standards.

Dwarika could be my favourite hotel ever. A fantastic mix of old Newari architecture and charm it is an oasis after the pollution and hustle of Kathmandu. I have stayed here many times and always will each time I come to Nepal. If you can't afford to stay, come just for a drink in the beautiful courtyard or a meal. It's worth it.

A fantastic traditional oasis of splendour in a very busy dusty city. The service is immaculate, rooms are very spacious, clean and oh so comfortable, heaven! The restaurants are varied, a bit more expensive than eating places outside but well worth it. We ate in the bar, food was excellent with a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend this hotel.......wonderful!

Room Tip: Having to stayed in two rooms, it makes no difference they were both wonderful.

Once arriving at Dwarika's there is a sense of how this town would have looked. It's construction material are local bricks and old ironwood One leaves the chaos of a busy street to enter the peace and quiet of a well run hotel with a variety of restaurants, library, water fall and small book shop in and around a brick patio. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Only spent one night here but, would have liked a day or two more. The gardens are very beautiful as are the rooms. Old style charm, attention to detail makes this hotel a must visit.
Bathrooms are awesome.
I didn't elect such nice accommodation in Nepal.

Nepal, for those that have been there is not the cleanest country in the world and Kathmandu, while a living museum in places, is a major metropolitan city. That said the Dwarika hotel stands out as architecturally appropriate, relevant, local and functional. with the kind of service levels one rarely sees in Nepal. Generally friendly staff (though if the hotel's management did not take half of all the communal tips I am sure it would be better), great food and an excellent location near the airport make this the finest hotel in the city.
