Pacific hotel has (mostly) friendly staff ready to help or advise on possibilities in Dhaka.
The problem is that they definitely lost the battle against the filth or never even fought it. The corridors look like you never want to go there again and use the windows instead (but the building is too high). In our corridor on 8th floor we could admire a few rotten mattresses covered with dust and dirt - you just feel like to check the one in your room if it has the same pattern and check out immediately.
During our one week stay, no one bothered to clean our room and after asking them for it twice, a funny guy came who cleaned the floor, then locked himself in the bathroom for 2 minutes, then got out and nicely asked for bakshish.
Well I don't know if he was actually using our toilet or cleaning it, but the bathroom looked worse than before, everything covered with water including toilet paper, and the mirror - I think it has never been cleaned since its production.
One think I like in this hotel was a breakfast - paratas with vegetable were just delicious.
The bottom line is that even with Bangladesh standards in mind, the prices in this hotel are not worth its value. Don't even try the cheaper rooms - there are no mosquito nets and they look like jails.
So go for the best ones, negotiate your discount ruthlessly, and if you won't get it, just walk away. If you will, nicely check the beds for bedbugs.
