This is certainly the most beautiful and best hotel in Kathmandu. Also the most expensive...
It is truly an oasis of charm, peacefulness and luxury, in the middle of a chaotic city. Actually with the different buildings, all in traditional styles of brickwork with woodcarvings, and the different gardens/courtyards, it looks like a small village. The lightings at night make it even more beautiful. The swimming pool area is especially charming and relaxing.
The rooms are large and very nicely decorated, with extensive use of nepali fabrics.
There are three restaurants but we only tried one. Food is good but expensive. And, as the hotel is located outside the city center (quite far from Thamel and Durbar square), it is not easy to really go out for dinner. That is one of the downsides of the Dwarika.
Other downside, many rooms overlook the main courtyard; the view is quite pleasant but it can be at times very noisy until late at night and early in the morning; don't expect to sleep late in the morning !
For that reason, despite all its true beauty, and the quality of service, which is excellent, I only give a 4 and not a 5 to the Dwarika.More
