We stayed at the Tropical Daisy twice during our stay in Bangladesh, first when we arrived, and then again after a trip to Cox's Bazar. The staff was so friendly, they even surprised me with a candle lit cake on my birthday! Breakfast is served downstairs or in bed, and all inquiries are responded to right away! The Tropical Daisy has a pretty nice location for Dhaka, with a nice view of the lake, and pretty close to some decent restaurants and useful shops (it takes a day or so to get the hang of the city, but don't get discouraged!). I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Dhaka, especially considering the price! The Radisson is way more expensive and not within walking distance of anything. STAY AT THE TROPICAL DAISY. They can help you arrange travel farther afield in Bangladesh, too, which you will want to do (Sundarbans or Cox's Bazar are the best).
We booked this hotel in order to connect with a tour group. It was good the hotel provided a complimentary pickup from the airport. The hotel vehicle and driver were good. We were at this hotel for three nights. It was in a rather muddy side street close the main shopping street, but being in a sidestreet meant the rooms were quiet at night. The main shopping street included some Bangladeshi restaurants. We ate in the hotel most times and went out once.The hotel staff spoke good English and were polite and helpful. Breakfasts were good.
We stayed 3 nights. The staff were very attentive - at times a little too keen but that is perhaps because they were anxious to impress and the hotel wasn't too busy as it was a holiday period. No request was too much trouble and although one or two things were not quite as advertised (the pool isn't open yet and laundry proved impossible during our stay) overall it was a good quality experience, good value and a place that looks like it will improve as the team become more experienced. We enjoyed our stay, thanks to all the staff.
