The hotel driver welcomed me at the airport despite my very delayed departure from customs due to a rare city-wide black out that evening (phew!). I enjoyed a quick check-in, nice fruit basket and drinks in the fridge of my room upon arrival. The staff in the hotel was attentive and responded quickly most every time I asked for anything....

I've stayed at Rigs on a few occasions now, and I've never been disappointed, especially considering the value they offer for the location. It's just a few minutes walk to Gulshan 1 Circle, and is thus perfect for transport (cycle rickshaws cannot cross the circle by day, so being close by allows you to walk to the circle and take...

The Rigs Inn is nicely located within walking distance to the busy city life and shops. The staff is great - very attentive and courteous. The room was good with everything needed, as well as a fridge, ensuring cold water in the warm weather - it also included nice fruit in the room and a newspaper every morning. The food... More

Rooms are spacious when it is a single accomodation although when it is sharing it becomes a bit congested. All amenities are up to the mark. There is a gym. No swimming pool. Staff is courteous. View is not so great outside your window.

Rigs Inn is nicely located, just far enough away from the busy main roads of Gulshan 1. The hotel is clean and well maintained, with helpful and polite staff. If you want to exchange money, the hotel often gives a slightly better rate than the many money changers in the Gulshan 1 market. Bengali food is very good, and the... More

We. walked in off the street after being disappointed in our booked hotel around the corner and were able to even get a discount. They also were able to give us a room safe in a regular room by borrowing one from a suite. The room was a nice size with an excellent AC, excellent complimentary WIFI and a clean... More

So I must preface this review by saying that we stayed here on our first night in Bangladesh, having arrived late in the evening and had spent ages in the immigration line at the airport and were feeling a bit of culture shock. There was nothing particularly wrong with the Rigs Inn: the staff were friendly, the room was cheap... More

Good value for money, all the usual conveniences, but unmistakeable signs of decay - musty carpets, borderline towels. Good location, wifi is alright, water is charged, and a decent spread for breakfast. The hot water turns lukewarm during your shower. Gurgling sounds often startle you through the night, the plumbing must be creaky. Service is just about fine. All in... More
