“Nice Hotel, and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I was in this hotel back in Feb 2012. I stayed 7 days for business purposes. I found the room being pretty nice, i stayed in the Deluxe room. The hotel amenities were standard, small gym, the pool was closed at that time. The bar, on the last floor of the building was most of the time empty, and they had a trio playing local music. most of the ambiance was done by local people. I liked pretty much the 2 restaurants, one offering local food only, and the other offering international meals. The breakfast was good as well. The internet connectivity was very bad, i believe this is the normal in Bangladesh. other than that the location was good, and the staff offered a good service as well.

There has been no timely attention to the problems faced. Food quality is average. Interaction from staff was average while check out. Location of Hotel is good for attending business meetings & visiting outside. Main problem faced was communication gap during booking & actual departure on terms of booking. Overall experience is average. Rooms are good for short duration stay

Sarina hotel is a very nice modern business hotel offering great service. I have been to this hotel many times and have found staff to be very helpful but the front office staffs are by the worst I have ever come across in my life, no manners, no smile, no sense of hospitality, not anything. They are better of working in prison. The best part of this hotel is Risotto, the Italian restaurant. The restaurant has wonderful décor and brilliant staff smiling and offering 110% service quality to their guest. I am very well acquainted with two main staffs who are Mr. Alam (Asst Restaurant Manager) and the other is Mohidian (Head Bartender). Their food is great especially their pizza and lasagna. I feel the rooms are overpriced by the food price is ok, but this is not a 5* hotel, it is 4*. Keep up the good work and I hope to back here soon!

Room Tip: Stay as highest as you can so the traffic noise won't disturb your sleep!

One of the worst hotel experiences ever! This is a smoking hotel, so if your not passionate for a 24 hours cigarette smell and smoking at the breakfast table you should avoid that hotel. Local this seems to be legal, but for western standards unacceptable.

Price is moderate, sourroundings are not inviting to step on the street at all. You constantly have smell of chemicals on many levels if the hotel. Possibly painung or something else.

Heating in the rooms does not work, feeling like sitting in a fridge is normal.

Price for laundry and also room service is very low.

For refrehments and breakfast you need ro get cards/coupons which is very anoying.

Also the lounge allows for smoking, so no time to spend there as well.

Pool and Gym is a joke, i never saw anybody using. Dond book the hotel if you require these!

Room Tip: I can only recommend to not use that hotel if you are a non smoker everthing will smell like being i...

Sarina is a small boutique hotel ideal for Business travellors. Location is also good keeping in mind most of the offices are either located in Banani or Gulshan area.

The food quality and service by staff members is good and prompt.

Room Tip: Not that the front of the hotel has any good view, but its always better to stay in front facing roo...
