I stayed this hotel several times from my first visit at Dhaka on the year 2004. I stayed here more than 6-7 times till now.The hotel is located at Gulshan which is well known as on of the elite locality in Dhaka. Also it is located very near to my country dealer's office. The hotel is small but they have excellent service . From entering into the hotel, the reception , the lobby , Restaurant and the room every where you feel a nice personal touch which make a feeling of stay in home away from home. The rate of the rooms are also very reasonable. Rooms are quite specious and the toilet is clean. Food in restaurant is also very good. The hotel have internet connectivity which is complementary for me. I use to stay more than 5-6 days on every trip and in every occasion I use carry back nice cakes to home which tastes really good. They use to keep fresh cake for me and nicely packed by them.

Stayed in Rigs Inn during a business trip for three days. Good rooms, clean and very amicable staff. Food is also good, specially the Bangladeshi or Indian cuisines. Complimentary break fast had nice choices though spread is small.

I always stayed in thIs hotel and rated it highly but last time the manager completely changed my perspective. I got a confirmed booking and after a long international flight reached the Hotel. There the manager came with a sheepish smile and announced that the room booked in my name is no longer available. I asked how could that be possible? His explanation was that the guest who was supposed to vacate the room, extended his stay.

The manager then took us to a nearby lousy hotel and put us up there. If this could happen after 5 years of regular stay in this hotel-I wonder what will happen to new guests? There must be something wrong happens recently.

I stayed in Rigs Inn hotel and it was booked through my travel agent form India. I stayed in this hotel from 16th Jan- 2013 to 24th Jan- 2013 (8 Nights) I have paid advance money for my stay.

The hotel is the most worst on the earth and the beheviour of some staff members are also very typical with negative attitude.

No body can stay on the second & third floor because these both floor are located over Hotel Kitchen and form morning 5:00 hrs the chef will start the exhaust fan and it will swith off till midnight at 12:00 hrs so i was not able to slip during full night on 16th Jan.

I complaint there reservation manager but he said i can not do any thing because it is aa noise of exhust fan fo our kitchen . He said that i can change your room and shifted on 3rd floor but still i was facing the same problem but the noise level has slightly reduce on 3rd floor.

The flush of toilet was totally out of order and i can not clean my toilet. This hotel is justshowing that they provide orthopedic bed but the bed & bed sheet are exteremely very very bad and they are misguiding the people.

I asked to returned my money so i can cahnge the hotel and live in other hotel but hotel staff (Reservation manager) said that we can not return your money.

Even they have not provided the vehical to drop me at airport when i checked out on 24th Jan -13.

They do not have a natural milk in there restaurent. I have asked to provide it but they do not have or made any arrangement.

The location of lift of this hotel is typical. If you want to go on any floor, every time you have to climb 8 to 9 steps on foot and then you can reach to the lift. In the same way if you come out from lift, you have to go down or go up on foot, to reach on any floor

HOW ONE OLD / AGED PERSON CAN GO ON FOOT ON EVERY FLOOR BY CLIMBING 8 - 9 STEPS ON FOOT TO REACH ON ANY FLOOR, WHO MAY HAVE KNEE PAIN PROBLEM?

Stayed two nights at either end of week in Bangladesh. Was picked up from the airport both times with no difficulty - and dropped off. Hotel staff all friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. One of the group had a problem with hot water one morning but was fine on return. Restaurant was good and pretty cheap. Would definitely stay again.

I just returned from a 3-night stay in Dhaka. The tour operator who planned my itinerary suggested I stay at Rigs Inn, and it was a great choice. Rigs Inn offers good value for money; a nice, safe location conveniently-located between the airport and old town; and extremely friendly and helpful staff. I was given a very spacious corner room that was in good condition, reasonably well-appointed, and clean.

There were two small negatives related to my stay that keep me from awarding 5 stars. First, the restaurant was a bit uneven. I had two dinners there; the first night ordering Indian food, which was quite bland and unexciting. Soft drinks were served warmish, despite being taken from a refrigerator. The second night I had Tandoori Chicken and it was excellent. Second, the wifi reception in the room was "acceptable," but not strong. It kept going in and out, but I was able to get needed work done.

Overall, I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it as a great place to stay for people who don't want splurge for the 5-star, international hotels in town but still want a nice, clean, friendly place to stay.

Very recently stayed here while traveling to Dhaka with my wife on business. Rigs Inn is centrally located right off of Gulshan 1's main street. Location is secure, and the Inn and its staff take precaution to ensure that visitors feel very safe during their stay. Everyone -- from hotel reception, to drivers, to security guards, to maintenance staff -- noticeably goes to great lengths to ensure guest satisfaction. Room is clean and very comfortable. Bathroom is well kept with abundant and well-pressurized hot water. Mattress and bed sheets were very soft and comfortable. AC blows very strong cold air, TV carries good selection of cable programming (including international news networks), and the in-room WIFI is quite good. Breakfast, served each morning by a very hospitable dining room staff, is included in the daily rate and is very tasty. Overall, I highly recommend Rigs Inn to business and non-business travelers to Dhaka, regardless of whether traveling on a budget (indeed, for the high quality of service rendered, the rate was incredibly competitive).

Stay in rigs inn as it was recommended by a friend. Small cosy hotel. Clean and tidy room. Working air con and cable tv. Internet speed is acceptable. Food serve is palatable but not much of variety for buffet breakfast. Located in the middle of the city. And price below usd60 per night. Good enough for a good night sleep and going to clients office. Recommended for short business trip.
