An oasis of tranquility in a hectic cityPosted Aug 21, 2014
Kathmandu as many travelers know is not the cleanest or quietest city. The dwarika though is an oasis in the midst of the grime. Top notch service, comfortable beds and an aesthetic all it's own. It was just what I needed after 3 weeks of trekking. I would really suggest the upgrade to one of their suites.

An absolute havenPosted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel lives up to its promise of a haven of peace and tranquility, away from the chaos and hubbub of the streets of Kathmandu. Its huge courtyard area is a true oasis. The decor throughout is meticulous and stunning - amongst the most interesting and beautiful of any hotel I have seen. There were a few points that detracted from our comfort, such as a bedside table on only one side of the bed, a hairdryer that barely worked, treadmills badly in need of a service in the gym, and my all-time bugbear with some expensive hotels - a surcharge for wifi! However, the decor and lovely garden area made up for this all and I would definitely stay there again. The food, too, was varied and good, and the location conveniently close to the airport and the major sights.

A Unique ExperiencePosted May 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Dwarika is the rare combination of a luxury hotel and a cultural experience. If you can afford it, stay there! You won't regret it; you will have a great time AND you will leave the hotel with a greater understanding of the artistic heritage of Nepal. (PS: My spouse and I went alone but we also saw several family groups - everyone had a great time).

Excellent ServicePosted Apr 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
Dwarika's is relatively very expensive, but the excellent service and beautiful architectural surroundings make it all worthwhile. The rooms have every comfort, including goodnight chocolates! The Spa is also excellent for some real relaxation. There are also 3 different restaurants, Japanese, Nepalise and Continental, to choose between. A very large range of food is available for the breakfast, which can be eaten inside or outside in the courtyard.

Pleasant Hotel amid the bustle of the cityPosted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: Architectural Details
Cons: Food quality and accommodation of children
Location: It is near to the airport and Pashupatinath Temple
The best part of the Dwarika's hotel is the fabulous courtyard. The collection of artefacts used in the facade of the building is done very well and adds a sense of history to the place. While the rooms are quite large, the design and details are not as impressive as the exterior spaces of the hotel. The food at the various restaurants was good but not exceptional. The pool was nice but very cold. It was a bit annoying having to pay extra for my 9 year old son to stay in the same room with us. If they had made an effort to actually provide a real bed for him, it would have been different but he basically had to sleep on the couch which was not very comfortable. In all it was a nice hotel but probably not worth the price we paid. If you are staying one night it is an interesting place to stay with great architectural character but after the novelty wears off, other large international hotels in the vicinity give you the same level of service, food, facilities at half the price.

Wonderful placePosted Mar 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is magic. Everything was great. Couple of comments: 10 $ per device per day for internet was way too much. Also, some lotion is the room would be nice. Otherwise, we were happy with everything.

Incredibly special hotelPosted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: The Christmassy cosy ambience
Location: Very close by to Pashupatinath temple area - 15 minute walk. Only 10 mins from the airport.
We stayed here either side of our mountain trek around pokhara. It was both a welcome start to the trip as well as an amazing luxurious end to the rest of our holiday that was spent in very simple tea houses and lodges. Ironically we ended up spending the whole day in the hotel after getting food poisoning elsewhere in Nepal. I couldn't recommend a better place to spend a very sick day.

Best hotel in KathmanduPosted Dec 4, 2013

Hotel with a characterPosted Dec 1, 2013
Pros: Architechture is great. Linen and furniture covers are very clean, that is not a common thing for Nepal. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Location: It is on a busy street, far from funky Tamel.
Nice hotel when you have a day or two after or before your trekking. It has a lot of charm, rooms are very big, beds are comfortable. Very nice architecture. The prices for food are high, quality is ok, but nothing special. Breakfast is very pleasant and worth the money, very nice to sit outside. Kathmandu is a busy and dirty city, and the hotel is located right on the busy street, I personally lacked the air or some territory/park to walk around, the one that Hyatt has. If I had a choice again, I would probably opt for Hyatt club level room, it doesn't have the charm but has more amenities and the beautiful park.

Amazing HotelPosted Nov 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
We only stayed here one night, but it has to be one of the top hotels we have ever stayed in. The hotel is simply stunning. The service is amazing. Our room was upgraded and loved it. Only downside is that you are far from Thamel, but only about a $5.00 cab ride away. If you are in kathmandu, definitely try this!
