At 5000 taka + room rent which is nothing less than a fortune in a small town like mymensingh you end up with a non functional phone, non working electric kettle and a portable crt tv...I repeat portable crt tv. The bed is pretty ordinary and the room service is very very ordinary. The complimentary breakfast is an apology and even the boiled egg is reboiled..god knows how many time. Not at all happy with the experience. The only thing that stands in the favor is the location. If you stay here be ready with cash for they do not accept cards...disgusting for a 5000+ taka room rent.
You might lost to identify this building as a hotel. I am pretty sure the owner of this building din't set his mind to step in hotel business and there wasn't serious planning about hotel structure. specially entrance, car parking area , Reception area, and well organised trained hospitality personnel . But you will have a room to sleep. You must arrange your own food outside or on request.
Great little hotel right next to the fruit and vegetable market, amidst plenty of local shops.
Room was extremely comfortable with plenty of hot water.
Expect road noise, but the location is superb and staff very helpful.
This hotel is grotty. A good location in the middle of a busy town and markets if that's what floats your boat. As in many hotels in Bangladesh, vast expanses of impersonal marble floors in the public areas (why????) but not enough attention paid to the rooms. No hot water one morning. Breakfast strange - like a snack box and served once in a sort of lounge area and once on a long table on a sort of balcony. Both these environments were pretty disgusting - the lounge area was full of last night's takeaway remnants and the cloth on the long table was stained and dirty. I opened my room door one morning and watched a rat meandering around a ballroom-sized space that did not seem to have any purpose (the space I mean, not the rat). The least friendliest staff of my whole trip in this extraordinarily friendly country. I knew not to expect 'western' standard hotels in Bangladesh, but I have to say avoid this one.
I stayed here as part of a tour group recently.
There are a number of good points to the hotel. Firstly it is located right in the centre of the action so if you are after street markets and attendant people watching and have a hankering for some street stall food action it is a very handy place to stay. There is a restaurant here but I didn't partake so can't comment. There is a function centre here - we were lucky enough to see a wedding and the splendour of the local ladies dresses was impressive.
The rooms themselves are fairly basic. Some have western 'throne' toilets while others have Asiatic squat arrangements. There is actually a range of room types of differing quality types and I experienced two. One was fine and the other had a bed that just could not be slept on. Seriously I've slept on carpeted floors with far less discomfort. I expected a row when I asked to be moved but they were totally helpful.
English language skills are not great here amongst a range of the staff but they are trying. And they'll get there as they get more used to the weird creature that is the 'western tourist'.
