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).

Positives

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.

How can you purchase an advance train ticket in Bangladesh without paying a bribe?

17 02 2015

A visit to the ticket counter at Sylhet train station to find the tickets were not available then after contacting a middle man (a person who works at the station) they purchased the ticket on the customers behalf and charged a premium for their service… is this the only way to buy a train ticket?

BANGLADESH RAILWAY E-TICKETING SERVICE – Does this even work?

Anyone in Sylhet used banglalink to purchase a train ticket?

Sylhet to Dhaka is a popular route by train but not mentioned on seat61.com
