A remarkable boutique, heritage hotel built in Newari Style
US$ 250 plus - our rates to you always below tariff
The creator of Dwarika's began collecting old building materials decades ago. As traditional brick and carved wood buildings were replaced with modern structures, Dwarika's grew. The hotel reuses stone, brick and wooden doors and windows from buildings dating from the 13th to 19th century. The result is spectacular.
The rooms are very large and classy but not ornate. All the furniture and accessories, except some of the bathroom fixtures, were made in Nepal - many of them on site in the hotel's large woodworking and restoration shop. Most rooms omit a TV (though housekeeping will be happy to bring you one if you ask).
Quiet, friendly service and fabulous food round out the package.
Dwarika's is near the airport and Pashupatinath temple. Taxis to the city center take 10-20 minutes, depending on traffic, and cost US$ 3-5 each way.
