“Comfortable & convenient ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

The hotel is situated only 10 minutes from the airport and is guarded by security on the entrance & in the doorway. The lobby is welcoming with a range of restaurants & facilities leading off from it. The bedrooms are spacious with a large comfortable bed, tv with several decent English speaking channels and a good sized bathroom with bath/shower. I ate in the main buffet restaurant in the evening which offered a variety of eastern meals including fresh fish cakes and chicken in sauces. The buffet breakfast was basic with the usual cereals & pastries and a range of hot food, but not sure I would pay extra for this again

This is my second stay at Radisson Dhaka and the experience has been mostly positive with few areas of improvement.

Pros
1) Location- very close to airport and safe neighborhood right by army cantonment.
2) Nice property- quite a large place with tennis grounds, outdoor swimming pool and even a freshwater pond.. almost gives a resort like feel in the middle of Dhaka chaos. Perfect for families!

Cons
1) The room and the bathroom are quite small compared to Westin Dhaka.
2) Room decor is a bit tired, would highly recommend polishing the wood furniture at a minimum if renovation is too expensive at this point.
3) Front desk staff is very friendly but the guard by the swimming pool is rude. Every time we would go there, he would ask if we are "hotel guest".very annoying.

Room Tip: higher floors have better view and less sound from outside highway

The Radisson Blu, a business hotel in Dhaka. Only a 10 minute drive from the airport. Initial impression of the hotel was good as it looked modern and clean with smiling faces greeting you as you enter.

Rooms were clean and even though only a smoking room was available there was sign of any smell. The bathroom is spacious but the sink is rather shallow and mounted too low. Being charged USD250 per room was quite steep.

The gymnasium is quite well equipped and well maintained. The cross trainer, treadmill and stationery bike were a little dated and requires updating.

Breakfast experience at the hotel is only average considering that it's a 5 star establishment. The waiters at the main restaurant were not attentive enough.

The Mediterranean restaurant in the top floor was quite good as the food quality was good as well as the staff and presentation.

Much as you'd expect from a Radisson but a little tired in the decor and in need of refurbishment. Room service and all restaurants in the hotel have a further 25% tax on top, which can prove costly in the restaurant on the top floor! Troubles with wifi and everything took "An hour" to fix, even after several hours and repeated calls to reception. When requesting a late check-out on day of departure /flight was then subsequently charged a further days half-room rate, despite it being offered and encouraged upon checkin. Have since been recommended many western boutique hotels in Dhaka at half the price.

If you are paying $200++ for a night anywhere in the world it is on the expensive side...but given the fact there is a demand and supply gap in Dhaka it is not too bad!
Off course as other reviewers have pointed out that the location of this hotel is fantastic...next to the cantonment and in close proximity to the airport kills it for Radisson...you are assured of getting into the airport in 15-20 min flat and that's a huge plus in Dhaka where traffic can be rather unpredictable....however if your work will take you inside the city everyday then this might not be the best place for you.....the rooms are great and nothing to complain about....the breakfast spread is good and service efficient for a business traveler....however there is an artificial fountain (or close to something similar) at one end of the restaurant so if you are planning to have a quiet meal with group of friends or business associates you better find a quieter place.....the health club is very basic and I was a little disappointed with the number of treadmills...just 2-3 of these which for a hotel of this size is pretty much inadequate...however the swimming pool is large and you can look forward to your laps after a hard days work!
Tip on Dhaka hotels - because of the supply gap book your hotel well in advance as they fill up really fast...dont leave it to the last minute.!

Comfortable, nice, pleasant, clean, and good venues at the hotel to keep you entertained. everything you need in a stay. Dhaka is a unique city and perhaps eye-opening to most who visit. The Radisson makes it all good. Particular favorite was the Cigar bar on the 8th floor I think....nice Cubans, good scotch available and easy atmosphere. Oh yeah, the breakfast was unreal!!! Get the buffet, it rocks! Gym was good enough as well. Nice pool on the outside.

Room Tip: Get a room near the Cigar Bar.

Location is absolutely great - less than 10-15 minutes drive to the airport.

Clean, hygienic and spacious rooms - very cooperative staff - ready to help at any hour of the day/night.

Most important - FREE WIFI - an absolute luxury.

Wide choices for dining - their top floor lounge is great - breathtaking view of the city - enjoyable world cuisine.

Though a bit expensive (but everything in Dhaka is so so expensive!)
