We were a party of five, staying at the Ambrosia at the start and the end of a Bangladesh trip. Two of our group were put in the next-door extension when we arrived, and felt isolated, and the manager sorted that out when we raised it. We confirmed our return date and thought we'd agreed five rooms in the main... More

This is an unabashedly positive review written soon after I returned from Bangladesh. A little background: for the first time visitor, Dhaka is a full-on attack on the senses and one is quickly overwhelmed by the pollution, traffic jams and pure chaos. This is where Ambrosia guesthouse comes in. With a secluded walled garden it has more of a boutique... More

Stayed 1 day at the main guest house and 3 days at the extended guesthouse. Main guesthouse - Rooms vary by size. The room I stayed which is closest to the 2 table dining area was very spacious. There's a manager working at all times to attend to any needs. I got all my clothes ironed by him for no... More

Ambrosia has around 5 different properties located close to each other in the heart of Dhaka. The rooms are clean and new. Good : Rooms, Home like atmosphere, good food and options around. Improvements : don't accept cards, wifi is patchy! No facilities for the price (gym, pool etc)

Ambrosia is a guesthouse, the layout includes a few communal lounge rooms and dining rooms. Bottles of water are provided daily and a laundry service is available. If you request it, vegetarian dinner is available. The dhal is great, as is the spinach and green bean looking chilli. There are 24 hour security guards which sadly are needed due to... More

A very nice, clean and friendly guest house in the Dhanmondi area of Dhaka - and quite reasonable too! A good staff with a friendly service, ready to pick you up and bring you back to the airport for an extra (but reasonable) fee. Nice garden and quite quiet neighborhood. Free breakfast for those who want, and free water that... More

Stayed in the main guest house - big room, spotlessly clean, few mozzies, no hassles which is pretty rare in Dhaka. Food is okay, if you ask they will go to the restaurant on the corner and collect a take away for you. Will also go out for diet cokes - my treat in Bangladesh as impossible at the end... More

I stayed in the Ambrosia for about a week and found it to be cosy, clean and friendly. The rooms are equipped simply but more than comfortable. You can order meals from the kitchen which were tasty - try the prawn curry. There is wifi available and it was fast and reliable when I stayed there. The staff are friendly... More

The Ambrosia offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of Dhaka. Just off a busy main street (they are all busy) and not far from Shabagh Square, the guest house is meticulously kept by a team of extremely friendly staff who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. This is not a Western run chain,... More
