Couldn't find any cheap accommodation in Dhaka, so decided to go for a hotel. As it was off season got a discount on the single room, and as expected this had all the nice facilities you'd expect of a proper hotel.
The room was not especially nicely furnished or designed and was quite small, but was clean and had a fan, AC, fridge, and Western style bathroom. Pool and dodgy gym on roof, which look to be open 24 hours.
There's ethernet cables in the rooms (no wifi), and some PCs and wifi in the lobby.
Staff can convert dollars into Taka for you.
This hotel is in a good area of Dhaka, and I think they expect everyone to be quite well off. The staff looked with disgust when I only wanted to change $30, think I was a bit small time for them. Also the taxi they arranged for me for the next morning was about twice what it should have cost (I paid 1000 BDT).
There's a couple of overpriced chinese restaurants downstairs, and a bazaar, which is the UK equivalent of a well equipped service station but attracts the rich and famous of Dhaka.
Final thing to note - everyone else staying there will be a 20 year old European intern of Grameen Bank.
