Stayed @ Lake Castle Dhaka during business trip in March 15. On First look it just appears to be a 1-2 star hotel but as you enter & explore it, 3 star ratings seems worth it. Rooms on the East side are particularity have nice view of Gulshan area. Adjacent buildings are too close to the hotel building Food -... More

I stayed in one of the larger (and now older) rooms facing the front of the hotel. For North Americans, you will find the room size more like US standards. I ate in the restaurant a few times, as well as eating in area restaurants. I didn't eat N. American cuisine on purpose (after all, why would you?), and I... More

I am here for 3 weeks. I've stayed in other places in Dhaka - at UN rates there is not much at the top end to choose from. The Lake Castle is fine - good breakfast, decent restaurant choices, clean, etc. I am now in my 4th room and absolutely delighted with it - 6th floor of the annex, and... More

We visited dhaka for some official work. Our first experience was not that good on seeing the rooms and checking the tarrif plans because in this much money we get a lot of facilities in India. After checking other places we soon came to know that this area was a safe place to stay as dhaka was disturbed that time,... More

The hotel is in a decent district of the city, and is clean. The front desk staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is good and fresh. Take the hotel car from the airport--it is included in the price and saves you a lot of heartache trying to negotiate with drivers that may turn you prematurely grey! Rooms are... More

Lake castle is really comfortable hotel. Rooms are cleaned every day, the food is good, staff is helpful and overall the service is adequate. Only thing that bothered me was really slow wi-fi, but still it was okay.

I spent five nights here for a conference held on-site. The food is fine, neither impressive nor disappointing. Facilities are clean though a bit dated/worn, and WiFi was working fine the whole time. All logistics were handled by a partner organization, so I cannot speak to how the management was to work with for an event of this size (some... More

Very comfortable stay at the lake castle, food not outstanding but perfectly adequate, staff helpful, and it's in a really good area for accessing the airport without having to drive through the city centre. There's little park opposite which makes the area a bit quieter, a no e comfortable stay, but not cheap.

Lake Castle does all of the essentials right: very clean, fast internet, nice beds, pillows, hotmshowers, a good breakfast, helpful staff, minimal street noise, etc The trip from the airport is quick with the new flyovers. I particularly enjoy the small green park across the street to go for a greenspace walk. There are restaurants near by , however the... More

Popular with NGOs and small businessmen. It isn't as flash as the Sheraton or Renaissance international chains, but it is local. Not cheap @ $100 per night for A/c large room, but actually away from traffic in popular Gulshan area. a few trees in front. One has to not forget they're in Dhaka, a stressful, crowded, sinkhole of a city.... More
