A wonderful oasis of peace and luxury in the vibrant city of Dhaka. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. I arranged transport through the hotel (for airport transfers and for local business trips) which was extremely useful and provided a safe and modern car with an excellent driver. Rooms and amenities are top class with a pleasant range of restaurants and the superb "Cigar Bar" for a relaxing end to the day. Throroughly recommended for tourists or for business travellers. Pleasant garden at the back with a lovely pool and cafe in secure premises. Dhaka is not the easiest of cities to navigate or visit, but the Radisson Blu is certainly a welcome establishment in the hustle and bustle of life in the capital.

For me, this hotel was an oasis on the outskirts of a very congested, busy and polluted city. I loved It's proximity to the airport (an early morning 5 minute ride), it's complimentary breakfast (one of the very best I have had anywhere!), and its free wifi in every room. What I found unique was the attitude of the hotel's staff. After exemplary service I tried to tip the bellboy, Khalid, and he refused it saying, "No thank you, sir, it is my job." Equally refreshing was the gentleman from Housekeeping, who, failing to find a good iron to replace my broken room iron, located a laundry room iron and insisted upon doing my pressing free of charge "because of the inconvenience." Would I return here the next time I am in Dhaka? Definitely!
This is an older hotel and in some areas, it is showing signs of its age. However, its staff - some of whom have been with the hotel since it opened 33 years ago - were exceptional. Everyone we encountered did something, even if it was a gesture, to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The staff were kind, considerate, pleasant and accommodating.

Don't let the decent photography fool you, this is not a comfortable business hotel in a nice part of town. It is down an alley, surrounded by crumbling buildings, and the staff are very poorly trained. In fact, I feel one of the few positive points of this hotel is its relative proximity to the airport. The staff lost a package of mine, and denied it was ever received. When trying to contact hotel staff by phone, I called every number in their directory multiple times without getting an answer. To me, the absolute the nail in the coffin was when I booked a car to take me to the airport, and they did not make arrangements and yet hesitated to tell me this. When my car eventually arrived some 20 minutes late, it was a dilapidated rust bucket that was covered in vinyl seat protectors, and that smelled like a foot. To make matters worse, they made me share the ride with another person and the commercial goods he intended to peddle, and yet the car still would not leave until I made a complaint to the management. It was a miracle I even made my flight. To make a long story short, this was quite easily the worst stay I have ever had while traveling professionally.
