If you’re heading to Kathmandu, there can be no better choice than a heritage hotel that contains some of the best Nepali craftsmanship that captures the beauty and spirit of Kathmandu’s traditions.

The key to enjoying Kathmandu is getting a decent accommodation. It is important to note that your hotel in more ways than one acts as your sanctuary whenever you need to take a break from the maddening crowds and snarling traffic of the city. With the exchange rate at NPR 88 to a US Dollar, one can find some pretty decent accommodation indeed.

Kathmandu struggles with electric power cuts known as power shedding on a daily basis where 12 hour power cuts is a way of life for the average Nepali.  It does not take too much imagination to visualize a power cut in the midst of a bath or while using the internet or amidst many other important things that require electricity.

A reliable hotel with a generator set will ease these problems immensely. And one of the best places to stay in Kathmandu that transports its visitors into a luxurious experience of first class accommodation is the Dwarika’s Hotel in Battisputali.

Located at just a 10 minute drive from the International Airport, the hotel is an amalgamation of Nepali heritage, architecture and hospitality. Dwarika’s Hotel also houses an extensive collection of artefacts from the 13th century onwards with its buildings and courtyards housing some of the country’s best craftsmanship, capturing the beauty and spirit of an ancient city.

With only 87 rooms in the hotel, the service you will experience is truly personalised. Their rooms are big, spacious and individually designed to immaculately mesh a contemporary lifestyle with Newari motifs and stylistic living. You can be sure to always have your power on here.
