Nirvana Inn Hotel Review (Sylhet City, Bangladesh)

21 02 2017

Nirvana Inn Hotel Review (Mirza Jangal Road, Ramer Digher Par, Sylhet City 3100, Bangladesh)

Our rooms were on the 5th floor, we had two rooms; Double Family Suite (with two double beds) and Royal Suite (with two double beds).


New gym

Located in Sylhet City

Staff generally friendly

Breakfast from 0730-1030, staff allowed us to stay longer if we arrived late

Flexible payment options

Negatives (things they can improve on)

Opening time for the gym could be 0600 instead of 0730/0800

Music and loud noise from hotel events and outside events can be heard throughout the night! They need to soundproof windows and other parts of the hotel

Reception and house keeping staff, some requests did have to be requested a couple of times for it to be actioned

Guests staying longer than 2 days need different choices for breakfast

All rooms to have security safe

Fix leaking shower fixture

Give guests quality FRESH water bottles and NOT Mum branded water, we’ve found FRESH drinking water brand to be the best so far.

Internet (Wifi) connection is slow and not reliable

Allow food from outside to be eaten inside the hotel, only one restaurant at this hotel

The bathrooms could be cleaner including the toilet and shower area near the swimming pool.

Would we stay here again? Only come back to use the gym if their opening time were extended and the price was right.
