The Lake Castle could not have been better for my week long work trip to Dhaka. Ive stayed in a few places in Bangladesh, and this was definitely the best, and if you are visiting or working in Banani or Gulshan or surrounding areas, its a great place to stay.

Location: The hotel is situated close to the embassy and NGO districts, a 15 min walk to gulshan 2 circle. Its reasonably quiet - although there is a large construction site next door which mercifully wasn't operational during my visit.

Rooms: i stayed in a deluxe room which was lovely and clean and well serviced with mini bar, TV, DVD player, comfy bed, fruit and a nice clean bathroom. Easily the best room Ive stayed in in Dhaka.

Service: Service was friendly, prompt and efficient. Staff understood well any requests I made and everything went smoothly. Staff had a nice balance between attentiveness and not being too in your face. The people who own this place know how to run a hotel.

Facilities: The hotel apparently has a gym but i didn't even look for it. The free airport pick up and drop off was smoothly organised and friendly. Dhaka traffic was not but the hotel staff account for this when suggesting departure times from the hotel. Laundry service was prompt and good quality. The free wifi was fast and great for working, sending emails and skype-ing.

Food: the breakfast buffet was more than adequate - the endless plates of mango were a delight! It got a little boring by the 6th day but doesn't any buffet? The menu ranges from Indian to Thai to Western cuisine - everything I had was tasty and i didn't get sick.

Cost: for US$75 per night this hotel was excellent value. I would definitely stay there again.

This was my second time in Dhaka, the first time I stayed at the Westin which was very flash and great, but I have to say Lake Castle was probably better value for money. The room was very comfortable, service quick and helpful. The best thing was free wi-fi in my room, which made working really easy. The food was also excellent, not too spicy or salty or fatty. I'd recommend it for anyone.

A small hotel with personalized service, very helpful staff(they will go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable and provide you everything you need -- with a smile). Rooms are comfortable, even though not very extravagent. Bathrooms are somewhat smaller in size. But everything is spic & span. The staff of this hotel are the real assets which brings travelers back to this hotel time & time again.

I have stayed in tnis hotel twice before and am preparing for my thid business trip. The hotel is located well in Gulshan-II, away from the congested area of Dhaka City. The rooms are ok. The hotel traiff is reasonable and negotiable acoording to the proposed duration of stay. The tarifff includes breakfast. The hotel has lunch and dinner arrangement and the area has many good restaurants. Free internet in room. They provide free airport pick up and drop. Good rooftop conference room. Staff quality is good. I would recommend this hotel to business travellers.

I stayed this hotel with my colleagues. The rooms rates are on higher side. Though the hotel is bigger than Riggs Inn but service is not at per with Riggs Inn. The best part of the hotel is the lake and the surrounding park in front of the hotel. Food of the hotel is average. The rooms are big and have all the amenities, right from wifi internet system to CD player with TV. There is a Gym in the hotel, Though not big as such but has basic equipments.
The hotel have Airport pickup and drop facilities.

This hotel is very convenient for business purposes. Access to WIFI, Airport transferts, desk large enough. The service is excellent and not overpriced at all.
I definitely recommend it.
The restaurant has good varieties of correct food at reasonable price. The restaurant atmosphere is a bit depressing (like many others in hotel for businessmen...)

This hotel is nicely located in front of a lake. Nothing great about this small boutique hotel but overall it was a very pleasant experience during the stay. Rooms are basic but nice and roomy. Ask for a room on the front side, opposite a lake while booking. Staff is very helpful. Overall great value for money looking at the price they charge for the room. Food is nothing special to write about. Being located in the vicinity of Banani /Gulshan area its convenient to move for business purpose in the crowded city, unless you have to go to city centre area like Motijheel.

This hotel was spot on for price working out something around £30 per person per night. The Hotel located in the embassy zone of Gulshan 2 was only a short Rikshaw ride away from Gulshan centre and a host of restaurants and other Hotels.

The reception staff are excellent, we had great fun with them all week, they lvoed the fact that they were being made to laugh and joke each time we went through. The bell boy was immaculate as was the reception area and the whole hotel. Excellent restaurant area for breakfasts and a good area with half a dozen computers with Internet access.

The rooms were immaculate with clean sheets and towels everyday, minibar well stocked and a bathroom that was extremley clean. The shower was powerful and all kept very clean.

The hotel runs a courtesy bus from the Airport to Hotel which is excellent. The hotel is also fully security guarded and the main entrance is completley covered up after midnight by large metal shutter which secures it.

All in all this hotel is an excellent 3 star, the only thing stopping me marking it as a 4 is the lack of a few facilities. But clean tidy, attentaive staff and a fantastic laundry service, you cant really ask for much more.

The room was nicely equipped and clean.
There was no noise from outside/above.
Furniture not older than some months.
Located in a safe and nice area.
The service was outstanding and the breakfast buffet had everything need for a good start in your day.

Das Hotel befindet sich in einem schönen Dhakaer Bezirk. Es ist relativ modern. Das Zimmer war gross, gut ausgestattet. Internet war per Kabelanbindung gratis im Preis inkludiert. Ein Kühlschrank war ebenfalls vorhanden. Das Hotel wurde rund um die Uhr bewacht und war somit relativ sicher.
Im Restaurant soll man allerdings mit Vorsicht speisen, vermutlich haben wir von der Kaffeesahne (Milch) Durchfall bekommen.
Im Gegenüber liegenden Park kann man ohne Bedenken spazieren. Die Umgebung kann man ebenfalls leicht zu Fuss ruhig erkundigen. Vor dem Hotel bieten viele Rhikscha-Fahrer ihre Dienste an, man sollte vorab gut handeln und die Fahrtzeit abklären.
Wir können das Lake Castle Hotel auf Grund des guten Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnisses empfehlen.

I stayed here twice for work in April (1 week) and September (3 week). I probably wouldn't stay here if I had a choice as it's expensive for what you get. (or don't get) The hotel is situated in a very quiet area but there is NOTHING nearby. The staff was helpful but the receptionist was rude and unhelpful. My security box was not working so I called reception. It took them 2hrs and 3 followup calls to finally send someone. The WiFi is slow and unstable. But what annoyed me the most was how they tried to charge Tk25 for 1 page print.

The Hotel Lake Castle is an adequate hotel for a business traveler to Dhaka. The room size is good and the service is fairly prompt and accomodating. One issue that is important right now is that there is a large construction project in the adjacent lot and they work from 6 am to 9-10pm at night. So it's very important that you request a room on the other side of the building otherwise it is very loud for much of the day. fyi...they do not serve alcohol at this hotel, so you'll need to go to the Westin for a drink.

The fitness room, so called, is grossly inadequate, but if you are a runner, there is one working treadmill machine. All other equipment is very low quality.

The 'lake' is currently also drained and under repair across from the hotel, so the normally nice tranquil park is not so nice and tranquil at present.
