Comfortable room, friendly staff”
Room was comfortable, The staff was always helpful and very friendly. Location is good for Center and old Dhaka ( traffic in Dhaka can be bad.. ) The hotel serves nice breakfast and they have a nice bar.
WIFI signals so poor. ”
Really like security system.
Mixer bag, but compared to local standard may be one of better options”
Mixed experience for me as things don't seem entirely consistent. Works going on at the lower floors of the building. Location fairly central and too far from Old part of town if you are tourist. Reasonable breakfast, on some days was easier to find something I liked, on some days less. Rooms some newer, some older. I arrived late at night due to delayed flight - got 'upgraded' to room without windows - in the morning got moved to a room with broken a/c, so got moved again to another newer room. Then was told I would be moved again.. Higher floor with better view, but old room and with persistent noise from some machinery in the building. All in all a mixed bag - you may be more lucky, or you may be not. There is a potential, but too many dents.
Good choice in old part of Dhaka”
Rooms are old but the maintenance is still not bad. Hot water, clean blankets, good WiFi. Breakfast is also good. Good value for money (compared to similar properties) Super friendly and helpful staff - person at check in speaks good English!
Staff with lukewarm friendliness”
Everything was good except the morning receptionists were all about money, constantly asking us to pay up though he wouldn't want to let us check in because we arrived before 11am (though the room for us was ready already)
If you visit Dhaka, for me the best hotel in Dhaka. Visit also Chittagong and stayed in Hotel Swuise Garden international. Paid in this hotel even more and was the most bad hotel I ever had. Stinky rooms and even no hot water!! The restaurant was Ok and also the employers. So don't go there.
Perfect hotel in Dhaka”
Best price quality and the price from the hotel. Everything is perfect. Breakfast super. Even every morning they bring you a international newspaper to your room!! And of course the hospitality and extreem friendly staff. Best hotel in Dhaka think so.
Improved from last time I was here”
They just keep getting better. This time the breakfast is a lot more balanced between continental and sub-continental, which is a great change. Also the items have been increased, its about 30 beautiful breakfast items! Easily the best corporate hotel in town, when you want to entertain your guest on a small budget. Incredible price to performance ratio.
Good Hotel for econimy travellers”
I was staying in this hotel from 7th August to 10th August, 2015. Front Office and Complimentary Breakfast is really excellent. Regarding the room ,we find cockroach near the bed and bathroom, we informed the House keeping they came and sprayed the anti Cockrach Spary, but not helped much. Except this everything is ok.
Three star hotel with five star service”
This hotel appears to be more suited to business guests, I assume this is as Bangladesh did not seem to be a very touristy place. However the staff provided excellent and friendly service. They made a huge effort to accommodate our needs. The food at the hotel was also great and provided value for money.
Very Good Sleep in Dhaka”
I visited Dhaka on tourism and had a great stay at Hotel 71. I got the "Royal Suite" on discount and it was an extremely comfortable place to wind down the days in air conditioned comfort. Staff are very pleasant and professional, gym is serviceable, and the rooftop terrace is an awesome place to take in the sunset and the breeze (and watch the hawks!) Not far from Old Dhaka, yet on a pretty calm street. Only quibble is internet was pretty slow, which would have been annoying if I'd been staying for work. Would definitely stay here again, highly recommend.
They deserve a lot more recognition.”
This is my second time at 71 and pretty sure there will be many more in the future. A beautifully managed boutique hotel. They aren't a luxury hotel, but the warm and professional staff makes it feel like so. Complimentary amenities, specially morning breakfast is amazing. The emphasis on guest satisfaction and service quality is always there. Only one negative thing, though not a big concern, they should improve the toilet and room lights looks a bit tired.
Decent hotel in resonable location”
I checked in rather early, but the manager was kind enough to give me a room at 10am. They also gave me an upgrade which was great. Handy location to old city, but not a lot of decent eating options close by.
Gem of an Hotel”
It was bliss, great service. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Wonderful and varied breakfast. The staff were absolutely wonderful, they were friendly, cheerful just naturally so eager and happy to engage with the guest, there is nothing that they wouldn't do for the guest.
Great Experience at the Hotel 71”
I had an excellent stay at Hotel 71. The staff did a wonderful job in meeting all my needs in a professional and courteous way. If you must stay on the south side of Dhaka, this is the perfect budget hotel.
All good. Would love to stay next time as well. Recommend. ”
Value of many. Excellent staff, security is very satisfactory. Breakfast was A+++. Recommend.
A bit shabby, but very reasonable room rate. ”
A bit shabby, but very reasonable room rate. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet OK, they will cook fried eggs for you if you ask! Reasonably priced hotel taxi pick-up/drop off to airport. Alcohol available in their bar.
I stayed here for a few days. The area is mainly commercial but there are restaurants within walking distance and plenty of rickshaws, etc to take you to other areas. The room was clean, and felt spacious with a desk/chair and comfy chair for watching tv (there are a few English channels), the bed was comfy. It also had a western bathroom (meaning the shower is separated) which is a +++, a mini refrigerator with items for sell, 1 bottled water, a kettle, toiletries, etc. Staff were super friendly, professional, and made me really feel at home. The restaurant and bar serve good food and drinks.
A Hotel like my home in Dhaka”
I stayed two nights and could relax and be refreshed there. The breakfast was better than expected, from the Bangladesh standard. Above all, the staff in reception was really kind. I asked them about the flight of the next day to Chittagong, a staff contacted a travel angency and bouhgt me a ticket for the cheapest price.. without any additional fee. And the wifi connection was very nice in the room. In every respect, it was my great choice.
Value for money”
This is my third stay at this place and i must admit every time i come here,i get more and more impressed.I had booked a premier single room.The staff be it at the front desk,room service or restaurant,all are very friendly and very welcoming.The dining is extremely good and so is the breakfast.All the queries are immediately addressed.I would strongly recommend this hotel,to whoever coming in for into Dhaka.Overall value for money and you will be satisfied with the service rendered.
great value for money”
I really enjoyed my stay at hotel 71.Dhaka is a very congested and chaotic city, so this hotel became my reprieve from the hustle and bustle outside. The staff at this hotel try very hard to make your stay pleasant, all staff members from reception staff to restaurant staff to the security outside are all very welcoming. The rooms represent good value for money when you consider how much you are paying, my room was spotlessly clean and came equipped with satellite tv, fridge ect. The buffet breakfast is good and the restaurant is also a good option for an evening meal. The location was good for me to visit all the sights I wanted to see, the hotel staff came out and helped me when I had a communication problem with the rickshaw drivers, they told the driver where I wanted to go and told me how much to pay, this really helps when you are a first time visitor in Bangladesh. So overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dhaka.
Every thing in the hotel is much apprecated. From room services to facalities provided for guest are excellent. I would recommend Hotel71 to everyone travelling to Dhaka. Location is perfect fine very near to Baily Road. Wonderful Staff... I would have convey my thxs to them personnelly but I was busy withmy scheduled so couldn't saidthxs for good exeprience. PLs pass on my thxs to Hotel71 Staff.
Overall was average. Only stayed for 2 nights. The room are comfortable and clean and the staff were helpful. One thing that you need to know is the taxis are hard to come by at the hotel and need earlier arrangement.
Very good value hotel ”
We had an excellent 3 day stay at Hotel 71. Staff service was excellent. In particular the gym instructer/personal trainer was highly skilled and knowledgable and of great assistance. Large comfortable room with good wifi. Highly recommended hotel
Great over all service and exceeds expectations ”
Being a business traveler, I got what ever I required and most of the time without any hesitation from the staffs. They even purchased me a mobile SIM on my request. Receptionists were very friendly and helpful.Fast wi-fi internet was available everywhere in the hotel including the rooms. Clean new rooms, good bathrooms, Hot water, A/C all in place and fully functional. House keeping and restaurant was fully operational for 24HRS. When I reach hotel late night and ordered some food and it was available within 1/2 hour. Fully fledged GYM was a bonus for me as i did not miss any of my regular workouts. Thanks for the services and hope the management will keep this up. Definitely my next stay too will be at Hotel 71.
A cool stay in a hot clmate.”
The taxi drive to the hotel was a typical struggle in the extremely busy streets. The staff was very helpful. The air conditioning in the room was very relieving during this hot time of year. Comfortable bed. Very nice breakfast at the hotel.
Good for the price. ”
This is a good choice in Dhaka but expect Bangladesh standards.
Clean and large rooms ”
Rooms were clean and tidy, and large, was cute bathroom was clean, however we found out hot water wasn’t quiet as hot as we would like.
Over all good. Next time I stay there ”
what a nice hotel
Central in Dhaka. Very nice staff. Aslo breakfast super.
Very nice place to visit ”
Very nice looking and good accompany there.really very nice place to stay
This is a fairly standard hotel by international standards, which means it is closer to 4* for Bangladesh standards. The staff couldn't be more helpful, making sure you have a great stay.
It is a good location, staff very good and helpful, food is good, need bit of maintenance and more cleaning
Hotel 71 never fails to deliver good service. This was third visit and staff are always attentive. Nothing much in area but for business traveller it's ok. Good value.
Excellent for its price!”
It was great stay for my guest. Good hotel, great price.
Better then I expected!”
Enjoyed my stay! The hotel was a lot better then I expected being one of the budget accommodations that is listed on Agoda. I don't normally write reviews but feel this hotel was worthy of one.
Enjoyable/staff was great - specialy Shimon ”
Shimon was really helpful and he always provided everything asked nothing was too difficult, thank you for everything.
Good option in Dhaka.”
Good wifi and restaurant. Drivers available for tours. While there I visited the old Armenian church and Dhaka museums.
Given wrong room type upon arrival ”
Booked 2 nights suite room but when we arrived, we were shown to a double room. When questioned regarding the room type error, the staff said they do not have suite room for the night and said that they will change the room for us tomorrow.... Not acceptable when room was already booked and paid for... The next day, we had to ask 3 times and was faced with multiple excuses... finally got the room changed 6+PM after insisting.... Unpleasant experience especially when the staff were aloof and showed no initiatives regarding the situation. They did mentioned that the hotel will provide a refund on the room rates difference but we didn’t asked during check out when the staff didn’t mention the refund again, since we didn’t want to waste efforts communicating further with them...
No value for money”
Location good. But some staff are non-cooperative.Breakfast menu and food not suitable for foreigners. Few staff cheat the customers. One bed was broken in Royal suit and not comfortable. Given us a water bottle in unsealed condition while charging for a sealed one.
Converted office block”
The stay was pleasant. The hotel is right in the heart of Dhaka and therefore accessible to many areas of interest. The "suite" is a little dated after leaving the more modern lobby area but the bed was huge and comfortable Great views over the city. My partner went for breakfast and declined - it looked dirty and poorly kept in the restaurant he felt (I was ill so did not go up) Handy base
Not as good as I expected !”
Stay was not as good as before. The house keeping staff had many excuses to make for some basis requests we had made in our hotel room. They always had a 'No' for a question. Later after arguing with them they did the same work. From this I mean to say is .. They just don't want to do the work or may be are feeling lazy.. Vegetarian food is always an issue. Other hotels of this category offer food veg food. But Hotel 71 failed to do so. Mattress is hard as a rock. They don't have a more comfortable mattress. The house keeping staff also denied to give us an extra pillow even though we had booked a suite room. Rest is good. Staff are good otherwise and basis and basic amenities like Wi-Fi, hot water are available all the time.
Except for Front Desk Staff, we had a pleasant sta”
We had not so bad stay here. I would say it is 75% value for money. Rooms, food and cleanliness are well taken care of. However we had a nightmare with their front desk staff. They mixed up our bookings and took almost 30-40 minutes for our check-in. It took a lot of explaining from us to clarify that the booking was made via Agoda which may have been further booked. Now that is not our prerogative. They should take care of all their documentation and facilitate a seamless check-in to their guests. Apart from this, their staff was too dumb to understand the problem and address it when clarified. It is unlikely we would stay at this hotel again.
Overall it was quite ok. A little disappointed with the bed, as it was not a thick spring mattress. Daily breakfast was lousy, little choices and food were cold. Room was quite spacious and well tidy up daily, Internet connection (wifi in room) was fast. Services from the staff were good, everywhere you go the staff will greet you, Room services for food was reasonable.
Ok, but not that great”
The hotel wasn't as nice as expected from the photos online. We were given a cheaper room than the one we paid for, the reason being that room was "under maintenance"... The room is not very clean, the sheets/pillow cases had stains on them. The room was quite cold too, but at least the hot water was working well. Do not order food from the restaurant - it's not good and they will charge you more than what is written in the menu you will find in the room.
The room is small, and not clean, Bed is not good enough to sleep. The light in the room is not appropriate position and brightness. Good staff that are willing to service you. Food delivery to the room is good for me. Good location but too noisy, may be you are in Dhaka.
Clean and friendly, comfortable beds”
The hotel is a bit worn looking and could do with some renovation but our room was cleaned to a good standard. The bed was extremely comfortable (a rarity in Bangladesh). Wifi worked fine and buffet breakfast was tasty. Some street noise but it wasn't too bad as the hotel is on the higher floors of a tower block (floors 11-19). The staff spoke good English and were friendly and helpful. Good location close to Old Dhaka for sightseeing and local restaurants.
easy access to places of interest”
not bad. breakfast was same on all days and hardly had any alternative choice. We had to ask for butter everyday to have toast. The hotel should consider entrusting someone for vigil. I noticed one guest taking away the bottle of jam, making others at his mercy to release the bottle.
Great Room but Poor Staff Performance”
I stayed here for two weeks and and the room was great value, though the staff were generally pretty awful. Once the restaurant called me at 11:30pm to ASK if I wanted room service. Basically I think they wanted some tips. Then my last day the reception called at 7:30am for no reason in particular. Both times they woke me and kind of pissed me off. Whenever I brought complaints to the reception, I realized that they were really good at smiling and saying "So sorry, so sorry," but never actually doing anything to alleviate the problem. These shenanigans eventually led me to have a somewhat uncomfortable stay, even though the room itself was fine.
It's all about expectations”
I booked this hotel mainly for the location, close to my client's office. However despite the price charged through Agoda, it was, at best budget and not much like the information in Agoda. Room was clean albeit spartan. But the hot water only worked when you wiggled the switch, the windows did not shut properly and the decor everywhere all looked a bit tired. There was wifi but it didn't ever work and then there were the neighbours. They decided to hold a concert until after midnight. It was so loud I couldn't hear the TV in my 17th floor room.Not really the hotel's fault, but it did nothing for my night's rest. But the kicker was when I left. The hotel tried to charge me again despite having an Agoda voucher. Eventually they accepted my refusal to pay but it was very frustrating getting the message across. And to add insult to injury, their charge was less than half of what Agoda had already charged me, although the hotel charge much better reflected the quality of the accommodation.
Yet to improve a lot.”
I was experienced a horrible time while checking out , No water is available in the wash room almost 1 hour. I am in a hurry to checkout. Hotel 71 made my life miserable on that day,
Hotel toilet water is brown color”
Hotel is okay so so but the cleanse is worst first day on hotel the sink and toilet water is not clean and brown color i have to brush teeth with mineral water! so bad and hygiene
Depending on who is at the front desk, you either get very good assistance or someone that is quick to say don't know about it.
bit dated but ok location”
place was ok, location is good if you want to be in this part of city, room was decent size
