“Great service and comfortable rooms”
Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

The staff work very hard to make you feel valued at this hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and amenities good. The pool/gym/spa are ideal for relaxing at the end of the working day.

The bar area is small and expensive. Cans of beer are at London prices.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

I visit this hotel almost 3 times a year. What can I say that hasn't been said? Great service. Rooms getting old. Could do with an upgrade especially now that there seems to be a couple of new 5 star hotels coming up. The rooms are crazy expensive, especially the suites. The lighting in the rooms are also very limited making it difficult to work in the rooms, especially after paying a small fortune for renting a suite to work in... The buffet is still the best place to eat in this hotel, although pricey. The other restaurants are fine but expensive. Everything works well in the room and bathroom, just a bit aged. The business lounge has a really sad variety of food. It needs a lot of attention! Overall good service but a general upgrade is essential.

I've been traveling to Dhaka for business 3X per year since 2000. I have avoided the big international hotels for preference reasons, but because of the regular hartals and prospect of being quarantined during my stay it made sense.

What I liked: Proximity to airport, proximity to contonement flyover, gym, shower, outdoor areas, and large property landscaped beautifully, Tiger beer, breakfast, and laundry service.
What I tolerated: Expense, hustle and bustle, painful check-in and check-out (can't this be streamlined?)
What I disliked: I invited 12 business friends to the Radisson for pizza and beer -- asked management to set a table up near the pool to enjoy the great weather and outdoors. I was told that "it is impossible." Huh? Impossible? Really? We ended up in the downtown bar which sucked on many levels. Also, the cigar bar was closed.

Stayed here in early Nov 2013 for a work trip. checkin and checkout were really easy. The room was comfortable, including very comfy bed and decent bathroom. This hotel has a nice comfy lobby where people gather and talk. The restaurant is fairly standard with basic buffet breakfast and reasonable options for other meals/snacks. Huge benefit is that it's 10 min from airport, which is helpful during strikes or if your meetings are on the edge of town. But if your meetings are in Gulshan, it's best to stay at the Westin.

Room Tip: try to have a room on quiet side-- not on highway side.

Good hotels in Dhaka are few and far between and the Radisson is the best, although the lack of good alternatives means that it is overpriced for the quality and accommodation. The staff are very pleasant and willing to help, although it is worth being aware that everything happens on "Bangladesh time" ie. slowly! The rooms are a reasonable size, and well maintained, clean and comfortable.
The main restaurant on the ground floor serves a very good breakfast, and the evening buffet offers a wide selection. The Indian restaurant in the basement serves great food, but the menu is limited. Vegetarians will not find it particularly easy to eat well here, and the "Zuchini Surprise" in the a la carte restaurant, was indeed surprising, for all the wrong reasons!
Wine, of just about any kind, is extortionate in all the restaurants. On the whole, a good, serviceable, business hotel, and in comparison to the local competition, it is just about 5 star.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your constructive review. We truly welcome comments from our valued guests because your comments help us to deliver your expected level of services and a comfortable stay with us.

We are delighted to know that you liked Breakfast and Dinner at Water Garden Brasserie”- located at the Lobby Level. We also appreciate your comments about “Spice & Rice” restaurant located at the ground level. We would be very happy if you please drop a few lines about your dining experience on these outlets under the Restaurant Section. Your feedback about “Sublime” restaurant has been communicated with our culinary team and they are working on to improve our product and service offering in this restaurant. We fully agree with you that the price of Wine is very high and the main reason is exorbitant import duties levied on alcoholic beverages in Bangladesh.

Once again we thank you for your valuable time taken to post such great review and for all the recommendations.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Radisson Blu Water Garden Hotel Dhaka.

I always stay in this hotel when ever I am in bangladesh Dhaka. It's not too far from the airport also it's one of the few 5 stars in Dhaka, the hotel staff are very friendly also the ambience is very good, only criticism I have is it needs to be modernised now as the deco have been the sae since they have opened, and also need to change the bed mattress too. Other then that it's all good.
