the hotel started around 25 years ago and they build it as 'old nepalese style' it's very nice. the rooms are big, clean and nicely decorated. you have all the facilities you may need. the staff is very friendly and helpful. the bar is very cozy. the japanese restaurant is really very good, a class better than the others. can really recommend this hotel. we enjoyed the 5 nights there.

I spent four nights here in a junior suite. Wonderful service. Excellent food at breakfast and dinner. Wasn't there for lunch. Everyone was very attentive to my needs. The room was large and well kept. Really liked everything about the place. Location is near the ghats, a bit far from the square, but you aren't going to be walking anyway. Always taxis waiting right outside.

This wonderful hotel is an oasis in the heart of Kathmandu. The gorgeous room was large and decorated with true artifacts of Nepal. The central area of the hotel was a relaxing retreat from the hectic city. The restaurants were exceptional. We especially enjoyed the six course traditional dinner at Krishnarpan.

We stayed for 5 nights. The Hotel has great charm and its own unique personality. The room was quite good. The staff and service were excellent. We were very pleased with the experience and recommend the hotel.

This hotel is a quiet oasis hidden in downtown Kathmandu. The food is excellent, the decor beautiful, and the staff courteous and friendly. The restoration of antique wood relics from the 13th and 15th centuries are priceless and to be able to view and walk among these items is exceptional. The owner, Mrs. Ambica Shrestha, is gracious and makes you feel as if you are her houseguests. Highly recommend!

The first impression of the hotel is it's quite lovely. Apparently the original owner, Dwarika Das Shrestha, picked up a bunch of architectural carvings in 1950s as people were sawing them off for firewood. He decided to collect these ancient carvings and constructed a hotel around these architectural elements as people discard them. Thus the hotel architecturally is a mixture of various styles which can look a bit messy but charming at the same time. Every night around sunset, the hotel has a dancer who would do traditional dance in central courtyard. I really enjoyed seeing that as it not only reenforced the local culture upon its guests, but also this is a nice way to calm its guests from the hectic Kathmandu right outside the entrance. I stayed in the Heritage Executive Suite which faces the beautiful interior courtyard. The room obviously can't be compared to Amans or Four Seasons. It's very rustic. But everything in the room feels very authentic and not put on. Everything you need is there; the bed was comfortable; the room is large; the bathroom is almost the same size as the bedroom. The only complaint I have is I wish bathroom is brighter. It felt a bit dark especially in the shower area. I typically like to hang up everything when I check into a hotel room. Unfortunately the existing clothes rod couldn't take on the weight and fell. It was quite funny actually. I ended up requesting clothing racks as I'm sure those will hold weight of several heavy jackets and pants. There are several restaurants available within the Dwarika hotel/ compound. The Krishnarpan restaurant is a must for someone who's curious about Nepalese food. From my understanding is that Krishnarpan is one of the best Nepalese restaurant in the city. In addition, there is a Japanese restaurant called Mako's. It felt like a neighborhood Japanese restaurant here in the SF Bay Area. I would say the food is fine. Furthermore, there is a restaurant called Toran. It basically has some Nepalese food plus other western cuisines. Among these three restaurants, my favorite is Mako's as it reminded me of typical Japanese food I have at home. I didn't get a chance to try the Fusion Bar or Kaiser Cafe. I didn't use the pool as it was end of January in Kathmandu. While I didn't test the water, I assume it's not heated. I also didn't try the spa. Although if the spa here is similar to the one at Dwarika's Resort, I would recommend it. There is a conglomerate of shops towards the back of the compound. I think it's probably rented out by the hotel to individual shop owners. I would say lots of interesting stuff and most look like they have been curated and not junky stuff you find around tourist attraction sites. Don't expect this place to be luxurious (as in Aman or Four Seasons' way) because it is not. However, the service standard is as high as any Amans I've been to and I would gladly return to this hotel next time I come back to Kathmandu.

This is by far the best hotel in Kathmandu and probably in the whole subcontinent. The infrastructure is great, woodwork is breathtaking, but perhaps the best part of it all is the service. Of particular note is Pramesh Devkota that is the most attentive, efficient and courteous guy. The spa and its staff is also great.

We stayed at Dwarika for 3 nights surrounding our travels in Nepal and this was an outstanding hotel. The rooms were lovely, with every amenity you could want. The courtyard in the hotel was an oasis from the busy city after the days of touring. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The breakfast had so many options to try. The best part of the hotel was the staff. Every person was kind, helpful and always with a smile to offer any assistance. You could see they wanted to provide the best service to their guests. This was appreciated.

For my last night in Kathmandu I stayed in this outstanding hotel with spacious and well decorated rooms, a swimmingpool, a wellness and very nice restaurant area and terraces. The hotel is built in typical Newari style and is full of cosy corners to discover. The food is excellent, staff very friendly and tere is nothing negative I can find to tell about my stay. Highly recommand this location.

This hotel is outstanding you know when we got the entrance of the hotel the staff is very helpful for all our problems.They really provide us a nice room with balcony and private spa,i like that very much and my wife is very happy staying there ,the cuisine over there is really amazing and the best service i got ever in my life of journey.
