Ascott The Residence
Ranked #27 of 83 Hotels in Dhaka City
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Having stayed on a number of occasions and found everything ok, staff very welcoming,rooms are clean, and well maintained. A problem with the restaurant in that my order took over 40 mins to arrive having ordered a basic shaslik and chips ?

Room Tip: The food is ok but the time it takes is too long, maybe a pre order to the restaurant may work.

My 2nd stay here. The Ascott is very near theNGO I work for. Rooms are no frills, clean. Bed is okay. Food is average. Competent and friendly front desk staff. The hotel is in the diplomatic zone which means there are no commercial facilities close by. Traffic in Dhaka is bad and it can take 30 minutes to get somewhere a mile away by car. There's a rooftop restaurant and a small gym on te premises.

Room
- very clean with all the amenities you need. I stayed in a deluxe room, which is not the best but not the worst
- shower had excellent water flow and hot/cold was easily adjusted to suit preference
- many outlets to charge devices and free wi-fi; recommend bringing multiple adaptors
- bed had very hard mattress, but sheets were good quality, soft and comfortable
- windows were not sealed tightly and therefore not sound proof which allowed construction noise to come through room; beware, construction couninues all night
- LCD flat screen TV with over 90 channels, many of which were English speaking or subtitled
- very good adjustable air conditioning, actually had to turn it down

Service
- Excellent
- staff were very friendly and accomodating
- hotel kept very clean and maintained
- restaurant open until 11 pm and room service available 24 hrs; very good food, even room service at 3 am, ordered noodles which were cooked fresh with chicken and vegetables

Amenities
- not so great; probably the only reason I gave this hotel an everage rating, otherwise it would have been very good
- hotel is in a residential area with diplomatic embassies; great for safety, but nothing to do near the hotel
- spa, very small, really just a room with a massage table; very inexpensive though 60 minute massage for only $35, French mani/pedi $15
- gym, small and not great air conditioning
- no pool, jaccuzzi requires an appointment and costs money, need an hour heads up for hot water
- free sauna/steam
- gift shop is just a tiny glass enclosure about the size of a closet with very limited selection

small hotel with great service!
I felt like beeing home. the personnel is very helpful and friendly. Food can be customized since I'm not fan of spicy food that is served in this part of the world but they made it no spicy for me without any problems. Hotel is placed in good neighborhood without crime and big noise of the traffic.
Overall, very good and more than expected.

Room Tip: we used twin room and it was very good. The bed is stiff what i liked

Stayed over on route home, the hotel is in a safe area of the embassies. On arrival the staff were very friendly and efficient, my booking was dealt with quickly on arrival in my room found it very clean with coffee facilities and a good shower after 6 hours on the road traveling this was a good start.

The facilities include free pickup from and drop to the airport, which is not too far from the hotel. The interior of the hotel is nice and it is located at a residential area where no shops are available nearby. No shop, not even a barber shop, is inside the hotel. The staff members are well-behaved and co-operative. But despite all, compared to the price, which is nearly US $ 200 for a room per night including VAT and service charges, the accommodation is not, in my judgment, worth the money at all.

In the quiet (and safe) heart of Baridhara. I had a suite for a lengthy stay and found the room spacious although the bed was quite hard. The staff were pleasent and helpful. The breakfast was more than adequate adequate.
