“Delicious curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

This hotel is not going to impress anyone looking for the chain hotel experience, but the rooms are clean, safe and the staff is friendly and helpful. There was construction going on right outside my window when I was there, but it seemed to die down at a time that was reasonable enough for me to sleep. The location is very conveniently located as well, and the park across the street is nice. I do wish they would put chairs on the roof area, as it seems like a wasted opportunity for a place to sit and look out over the city.

What did impress me was the breakfast buffet. Every morning they had a chicken or mutton curry that was incredible and I ate it every day. It was probably my favorite thing I ate during the trip, and I generally enjoyed the food in Bangladesh quite a bit. The food itself might even be worth the trip if you are staying elsewhere in Gulshan II

It should be noted that as far as I can tell there is no true non smoking zone in the hotel.

I stayed here before earlier this year and while it is not perect it is OK. The locality suited me fine as I d id not want all the hastle of getting a hotel in the middle of the city. We arranged a 3 day workshop here and while the 6th floor venue was not ideal, it was OK. When faced with 2-3 hour traffic in Dhaka you usually go with what is convenient. Staff are good. Breakfast is tolearable.

I booked two nights at the Lake Castle based on a beaming review from fellow Americans. I was not impressed. Although my room was large and looked like it was trying valiantly to be a Hilton Garden Inn, the fixtures and furnishings left much to be desired, and its location down a lane buried deep in Gulshan II was awkward. When I was there, loud construction work was going on next door, though I can't blame the hotel for that. Breakfast was just ok, and service from reception through to food service was rather cold. On a positive note, the internet speed was great! Overall... overpriced/overrated, and I wouldn't stay there again.

Good security and well trained staff BUT unless you are lucky enough to have one of the few suites in the middle of an upper floor overlooking Gulsham Park be prepared for construction noise (and dust), including pile driving, from THREE new buildings going up at the rear and side of the Hotel. And thats on top of the racket outside from Dhaka's notorious and honking traffic. Noise on all four sides. The building work never stops, including weekends. Although builders are supposed to only work 9-6, in practice diggers and belching heavy trucks were working through the night most of the time we were staying at Lake Castle. And don't think you can put the insomnia to use - the internet in the rooms will be probably be out of action! The hotel management know about the noise problem but can do nothing about it except say they are fully booked and hope it might be better for guests at the end of 2012 when the new buildings may be completed and the machinery and HGV's have moved on.

Room Tip: If your budget stretches to a suite, try for a front room in the middle of the upper floors, overloo...
