“Getting better...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

I've stayed a few times over the recent years and slowly the decor of the rooms seem to be improving.

It's clean and basic with decent wireless, with a good central location.

The food however, is still a notch below average. Better to walk to somewhere nearby - don't try to get a vehicle, it'll take 30 mins to get over the first set of traffic lights.

A friend and I spent one night in the Washington hotel before flying home. The reservation had been pre-arranged by another hotel owner who had recommended the hotel. We paid 75 USD including breakfast and pick up from the train station.

We got a twin room which was a good size and very clean. Everything worked fine including the plumbing and air-con. The beds were a bit hard, but this seems typical in Bangladeshi hotels. I slept well enough, so it couldn't have been that bad.

The breakfast was a buffet affair which was well stocked with a good variety of food. Nothing special, but decent enough.

It's hard to give an overall assessment after only one night, but I thought this hotel provided good value, and I would definitely stay here again.

This is a just-about average hotel, with average facilities just fitting the needs of a business traveler, who leaves the hotel room at 8am and returns late at 9pm.

Some of the rooms are okay, esp the AMBASSADOR suites.
The cleanliness and comfort is just about alright and nothing to rave about.


I stayed at this place several times, coz someone else was booking and paying for my room. I would never stay there myself, as there are much better choices only minutes away.

The locality is central, but incredibly crowded with getting out and in is a herculean task.

The website is MILES away from reality.

The breakfast and food is terrible monotonous and just about OK.The Aircons are quite ancient and one is lucky to get a room with a newly fitted Aircon. There is no central Aircon and the indivisual ACs can make quite a racket.

Definitely not a place to stay on holiday or pleasure.

Wash rooms are alright, nothing to complain about, also noting to sing a song about. Very spartan and just about passable. Cannot note any major complaints.

The service is horrendous and you are lucky if you meet any housekeeping staff who can speak good English. For every small thing, one needs to call the reception.
Rooms are quite spacious thoiugh, esp the Ambassador suite.

Room Tip: The higher you go, further you are form a filthy vacant plot right next to the hotel.

I have stayed in Washington Hotel many times and I find it comfortable from the perspective of its vicinity to my clients.
It is a decent hotel, located conveniently with very very easy access to most parts of the city.
Rooms are average, but comfortable.
Breakfast is really monotonous, okay for couple of days but after that one really has to struggle to decide what to eat. Lunch & Dinner are decent and moreso from a vegetarian's perspective it is really welcome to find decent outside of your home.

Room Tip: Decent stay, with good connectivity.
