I went here on a trip for a wedding, my friend who lives in Dhaka booked the hotel and not knowing anything I was surprised. It isn't updated but it has what you need including a breakfast in the morning. The gym is a joke and often the language can be a barrier, but it was safe and the staff... More

Stayed here 6 -20 August and was very happy with the hotel in all respects. It’s in a great location close to the diplomatic area of Gulshan 2 and only 10-15 minutes from Baridhara depending of course on traffic, which can vary from horrendous to downright dangerous. Room rates were reasonable for the area and the hotel is opposite the... More

Up market hotels are very expensive Dhaka, and this hotel offers reasonable rates.You essentially get what you pay for. It is located in a good area with some good restaurants nearby as I discovered too late. The room was a little gloomy although it faced the roadside. The phone was not working, and I had to make a number of... More

The hotel is in the Gulshan area of Dhaka, surrounding roads are closed off to non residents after 9.pm. That said, a few thousand Taka will get you most places in Bangladesh. The Hotel is average by international standards while charging above average prices. Food is overpriced, plenty of good restaurants in the area. I made the rookie error of... More

Stayed at this hotel from 29th May to 1st June. Good location in central Dhaka. Easy access to business district and airport from here. The park in front of the hotel is a great lung space and good for a walk in the morning. Ask for a room facing the park in front.The rooms are clean and good. The facilities... More

nice hotel...the annex building is recently started and is much better than the old building. best thing about the hotel is its staff...they are very friendly and nice. right from the bell boy to the restaurant waiters to the GM --> all give you a very personalized service. They give all the toiletries...but you have to ask for it! overall... More

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
