Hotel need some attention of management! Hygiene level must be checked. Rooms really needs renovation, some painting and cleaning can do wonder. Staffs are very good, well behaved and soft spoken!!! Food is not so good not so bad!! It was okey. Overall one more try can be given!
I went there for work and the location was very convenient. But furniture is old and carpets are dirty. Rooms on each side of the corridor have windows opening on walls - so very dark. I ended up negotiating a room on the back street which was nice, clean and clear. The breakfast buffet is very good, the staff is nice and wifi is fast. As this is a busy street with lots of buses and shops, all rooms are noisy. It would benefit from a change of furniture, and get rid of the dirty carpets.
Situated at a place closer to the National stadium where cricket matches are played Also a supermarket within the building which is very helpful Road side is always very busy and traffic and the trishaws are very strange as it is covered from all sides with iron mesh Just few blocks away you get a money 💵 changer, go to the first floor. Places of shopping just few blocks away where you could buy good quality stuff and genuine leather stuff too
I stayed here for 3 horrible weeks while I was interning at the Grameen Bank. It does not look anything like the photos. The rooms are disgustingly dirty, you can not breath because the air is so dirty in the rooms from cigarette smoke. There are cockroaches in the bathrooms. The beds are very uncomfortable and the sheets are stained. This would be understandable if it was a cheap hotel, but it is not cheap. Very expensive for what it is. The housekeeping staff are very nice but the receptions staff were rude and unhelpful and tried to get as much money out of you as they could. If you are interning at Grameen I recommend staying further away and commuting to the office everyday. Do not stay here!!!!! But I must say the dhal at the breakfast buffet is delish
This hotel was somewhat scary when I arrived but I am glad to say things started getting better afterwards. I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. The room was very very old looking but the bed sheets were clean and so were the provided towels. In Dhaka hotels are surprisingly expensive. For what it is this hotel is also expensive. The location in Mirpur was very convenient for me. The staff is pleasant, even offered me their own phone to call locally. Yet when I asked about a taxi they acted more like they were hesitant to get me one instead asking where I am going and when making me feel like they were trying to offer me their hotel transportation which was quite expensive. It actually costs less to use the expensive taxis from the airport than it does to use the hotels transportation from the airport to hotel. Once you are inside the hotel you are safe despite the chaos that looks to take place in this very busy neighbourhood. There is a plaza next to the hotel with a supermarket which is very convenient. The air conditioning worked fine and the free internet also worked well. After staying at this hotel I went twice back to Dhaka and although the location of this hotel is quite convenient for my needs I chose to stay somewhere else only because the rooms are too old and the price quite expensive for what this hotel has to offer.
I spent two weeks at the Grand Prince. During this time, I had a standard room. It provided a combination of meeting all my needs, and providing easy meal options, and providing friendly and outstanding service. Dhaka takes a little getting used to, but this hotel provided a haven of comfort in a busy and hot city.
Travelled to Dhaka during last January due to official reasons. Stayed at Grand Palace Hotel due to close proximity to my work place. I was not happy with hygiene maintained at the hotel because I saw cats are roaming freely in the hotel lobby even in the 8th floor. otherwise overall OK experience. There is a shopping mall at the ground and 1st floor of the hotel so the actual hotel starts from 3rd Floor.
My first visit for two years and the price had increased 50 per cent. Managed to get a discount to the old price of $30. Very friendly staff very welcoming - but that is the one and only compliment I can give the hotel which I have used for years. Since my previous visit I don't think anyone had dusted room 607. I could write my name in the dust on the stand which holds the fridge and ran my hand along the dust-covered magazine rack in reception to show the staff what I was talking about. At the end of my stay the remainder of the rack remained untouched. The room itself was dilapidated. Smudges on the wall where mosquitoes have been squatted, veneer peeling off the wardrobe. As for the plughole in the shower, it looked as though someone had poured the entrails of a chicken down it. Had visions of some beast crawling out to grab my ankle whilst I showered under the luke-warm water. A cockroach scurrying across the floor doesn't worry me, but I wasn't keen when one tried to share my bed. Handy location for interns at the Grameen Bank headquarters just along the road, and I have been there when the national youth basketball team from Nepal stayed. There are always buyers from East European countries haggling with clothing manufacturers but it is now really only suitable for people travelling on a tight budget. Even so, the price of $45 is high for the standard and there are many other hotels in Dhaka which offer better facilities for a more reasonable rate. Unfortunately, I shall not be staying again even though I shall miss the staff.
Very dirty room compare too price USD 45 per night. Prefer not to stay next time. No good pillow , hotel penalty policy is very bad. Not cooperative. Air conditioner is noisy, room is very small. Electric sockets are not working. Television is very old.
I stayed at prince hotel for appx. 2 months. The hotel is situated right on the crowded streets of mirpur so people looking for peace and tranquility, please avoid !! Hotel needs some renovation in terms of carpets, TV and other amenities. There is very few items for vegetarian people in the food menu. However not everything is bad here, internet speed is good, the hotel has a roof top gym and small swimming pool. You can find foreigners in the hotel who ate on some kind of exchange program or internship. The rooms with series 301, 401, 501 .. are the only ones with scope of daylight as they are on the front, but again you have to deal with the traffic noise. To conclude, if someone is looking for a short stay ( to watch a cricket match ), grand prince is the place.
