“my first stay in Richmond Hotel & Suites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This was my first stay in Richmond but certainly not the last one. I needed Hotel near airport and work so Richmond was my first choice. Also is placed in Uttara area which is quite safe for foreigners. Prices are very suitable and people there are very friendly and ready to help if needed. Breakfast is good, its not buffet but you have variety of dishes to choose from. In Hotel is also George's cafe with best apple pie which I ever tried, in Dhaka, can you believe. Overall I am very pleased with Hotel, manager and staff so I will stay in Richmond next time too.

In my understanding, this is the second closest hotel from the main airport in Dhaka city, which can be very important considering the political situation in Bangladesh. In any situation, you can just walk to the airport. The ground floor houses one of the most popular cafes in Dhaka city, George's cafe, which ensures great food and great environment for hanging out. Rooms are spacious and staffs try their best to turn the customers into "recurring customers". It was a work trip and we went there as a group and the management made sure that we can remain as a group and work after coming back to the hotel. At least one of the owners were always present to supervise the staffs and take care of the guests. Looking forward to visit them again soon.

I needed a hotel prior to departing back to London and found Richmond Hotel & Suites. What a great hotel. The hotel is less than 5 minutes away from the airport. Airport pick-up was smooth and the concierge was more than helpful to arrange transport. All the staff were extremely friendly and I was greeted by the manager. The room was great and the bed was extremely comfortable. Room service was quick and staff were always happy to help. When I requested assistance to find a good local restaurant, the concierge went above and beyond to help make all the arrangement. Drop off to the airport was smooth. Will definitely stay again in the future and recommend it to all. Out of the 10 or so hotels I've stayed in Uttara over the past few years, this is easily the best hotel.

second time im writing this review, mine and my colleagues reviews were removed for some reason.
But the fact remains, Richmond location is top draw. So near the airport, and Uttara area is bustling, interesting and very safe. The latter point extremely important of course.
I was there mixing business and pleasure, and even on those general strike (hartal) days, the hotel looked after me, the area was mercifully free of traffic, and i BIG HELLO to Mohammed the Rickshaw rider who took us on a personal tour of the area into a slightly out of the way "rural" undeveloped area, and back to sit at the foot of the airport runway to see and feel planes land.
Make sure you set aside an hour to do this with Mohammed

The rooms were super chic, flatscreen tvs, the most comfortable beds i can remember in any hotel. no exaggeration and Georges cafe for my drug of choice.

Wifi was super fast.

Do it whatever your reason for visiting Dhaka.

Room Tip: ask Affan to arrange some Dhaka tours, especially the Buriganga river tour and also an all day river...

Close to the airport, less then 5 mins drive. Nice & clean all around the hotel. Very comfortable bed. Friendly & helpful stuff. A state of an art cafe at the lobby named Gorger's Cafe. Over all a great experience.
