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

Having experienced hotels in Bangladesh quite a bit this is by far the best money/value ratio. Rooms, service are above average, bedsheets and towels are (relatively) very clean (I haven't encountered better, but then again I haven't been to high end ones). The breakfast is basic but, again, relatively with some variation. Location is it's best advantage - it's safe... More

Good all round accomodationss; I plan to stay there next visit Walking around the lake is convenient. Breakfast is reasonable; dinner not so great. I see no compelling reason to have a minimum of 200 characters!

The hotel is the more sophisticated you can have for that price in Dhaka, where normally hotels are quite expensive if you want something decent. Lake Castle is nice and very clean, rooms are spacious enough, with a small TV and DVD player (you can get DVD's at the reception). Big breakfast buffet and, what I consider a plus, a... More

I've stayed at the Lake Castle twice now as part of a business trip. Staff are very efficient and friendly, rooms are spacious and the hotel is conveniently situated close to main transport routes. Breakfast is presented as an assortment of local and some (limited) international cuisine. Omelettes cooked fresh to order are delicious and staff are eager to please.... More

Lake Castle is located in Gulshan, Dhaka. The area is very posh and market is nearby. The Hotel is clean and the rooms are nice. However some rooms have a building right outside the window. So you have to draw the curtains for privacy. Very difficult to find veg food, but for fish and other non-veg food it is very... More

I have stayed here a number of times in the last year on business trips. The staff are friendly, and the plumbing, air conditioning and internet connection are all reliable (which is basically all really one seeks in a hotel for a business trip). The kitchen provides a reasonable range of dishes that are pretty well-prepared, so if you are... More

Comfortable hotel of international standard. Well equiped, comfortable rooms. Good restaurant. Good service. The hotel is situated close to the airport and in the embassy quarter. It is quite far to go downtown, but of course much more quiet. Motor rikshas (CNG) are not allowed to wait in front of the hotel, so there is little alternative to booking an... More

The hotel rooms are clean and most of the staff are friendly. Location is good especially with the local park right across it - ideal for an early morning run. We enjoyed the food, especially the Thai cuisine in the menu. Breakfast was also satisfying. A helpful tip. It takes quite a few minutes before the hot/warm water comes out,... More

Hotel is located in the commercial place of Gulshan and a nice area with lot of open space in the vicinit. The consulated and most business officea are closeby. Service could definitely be better as one thing I could not forget is that I booked a vehicle for local commute from the hotel reception desk and they asked me to... More
