“my favorite hotel staff in Dhaka ~ and a pleasant stay :)”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I stayed at the Ornate for four nights, and found it very pleasant. On the downside, the rooms do not have windows facing outside, but, on the upside, the rooms do not have windows facing outside. :) It's very quiet, and possible to get a good night's sleep. My bed was comfortable, the water pressure was good (I had not had a standard shower in two weeks!), and the staff were very helpful with arranging transportation, hooking up internet, etc. Breakfast on the 'continental' side was simple yet sufficient. I would have stayed longer if I needed to be in this part of Dhaka & wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Reviewed 24 January 2011

Set in Central Dhaka, on a side street off a main street. Rooms were ok. Definitely mid-range, nothing fancy, but not grotty. We paid $30/night incl VAT for a twin w/ bathroom, breakfast and internet (through cable) included. Initially had problems with internet, but was resolved with two trips from friendly housekeeping staff. Beds were fine, with fresh sheets covering a duvet. Room was clean if a little spartan. “Window” was actually a barred window looking into an adjacent hallway. Breakfast was nice, either American or Bangladeshi available and made to order. The hotel is relatively close to Old Dhaka. Rickshaws were about 20-30BDT to get to Old Dhaka. TV and AC worked and everything looked to be relatively new, nothing broken or worn. First night there was loud music from a bar below, but second night there was no noise issues and overall was very quiet considering Dhaka. Walls were thin however, so very little sound-proofing. Front desk made a real effort to welcome us, slipping an English-language newspaper under the door every morning, checking with us that everything in the room was fine and sending us a care package of toothbrushes etc. Overall a pretty decent choice if you don't have unrealistic expectations for this price-range in Dhaka. That said, we switched (due to Ornate being fully booked) to the White House Hotel nearby and found the room was much nicer for only $5 more.

Reviewed 9 May 2009

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. We chose this hotel on the basis of the claims on their website. The location is good. Even though a Japanese-Bangladeshi collaboration, and modelled on the lines of a Japanese business hotel, it does not provide services as claimed. There was no airport tranfer, no welcome drink on arrival
as promised. The housekeeping services were poor. It was only after complaining twice that we got the the toilet seats repaired. However, on the second night the air-conditioning did not function at all, and since there was no natural ventilation or windows, the room was suffocating, and unbearable in the heat. In spite of hanging the sign " Privacy Requested" outside the door, the housekeeping staff walked in without permission, using their duplicate key.. The food at the restaurant was reasonable, but the tablecloths stained. The price charged for a bottle of mineral water was exorbitant. The bakery was good. The staff were polite, but not properly trained.
