I have actually stayed at Ambrosia twice, both during the very busy week of the biannual Chobi Mela Festival of Asian Photography in 2004 and 2009 (ignore the forced date above). The owner, Jahangir Alam, is wonderful. The garden inside the gate is well-tended. The rooms are part of an expanded, converted house, and some are a bit noisier than others, but this is a noisy city, so you just have to deal with it. Breakfast is basic but good, and food of just about any kind can be requested in advance. Breakfast is often around one big table, which makes it easy to meet others. The internet access in 2009 was spotty, but ok when it worked. They are always trying to improve it tho. There are restaurants within a few seconds' walk, and it's near a well-known intersection so it's easy to tell CNG and rickshaw drivers where you need to go even if you do not speak Bangla. Mr. Alam does all he can to make it a home away from home, and as a result I'm not the only guest I have met there who feels a sense of loyalty to, and affection for, Ambrosia.
