Guesthouses and B&Bs
Helping fund a local NGO-run women’s training centre, which shares the site, this welcoming guesthouse on the peaceful outskirts of town is easily the nicest and best-value place to stay in Jessore...
The old Azmiree (aj-mee-ree) has some impressively clean rooms and shutters that look as though they could withstand a siege. It’s given some gentle touches with the addition of desks and chairs, and is the hotel most likely to accept foreigners...
Disappointingly unwelcoming for an NGO-run guesthouse, Desha does, nevertheless, have the largest and most comfortable rooms in town and can arrange meals if forewarned...
This budget hotel is managed like a midrange one and is the best budget base in Jessore. You enter the rooms through red theatre curtains and discover carefully looked after rooms and the sort of boisterous welcome worthy of the theatre...
Hotel Al Amin
It’s not certain whether foreigners can stay here or not, but persistence normally pays off. The rooms, though not palatial, are clean and that’s what counts. It’s on the main drag.
Concrete floors are swept regularly and sheets are kept clean, and although the singles are cramped, double rooms are reasonably spacious. Only some rooms have sit-down toilets. Staff members are welcoming to foreign guests despite limited English...
The clean Hotel Babla has character, both in its uneven architecture and in its English- and German-speaking manager. It’s something of a backpacker hang-out, but is a little difficult to find as its sign is in Bengali.
The deep-green rooms are small, but well kept. Some rooms have river views – some have road noise. It is the friendliest hotel in Mongla. Some English spoken.
Hotel Castle Salam
Rooms are cheaper, but much smaller than those at Western Inn – Castle’s main rival – and they don’t have the balconies or wi-fi. But this is still a smart, well-run hotel, which is kept very clean, and there is at least wi-fi in the lobby...
Hotel Gold Star
Neat and tidy fan-cooled rooms are fine for a night. Bathrooms are very small and squat-loo only. Very close to Dhaka bus stand, this place is down a lane on your right as you walk from the bus stand towards the railway line...
Hotel Hasan International
On the surface, it’s the best city centre hotel with large rooms, hot water and satellite TV, but thanks to some serious road noise and staff who haven’t learnt how to smile, it won’t be winning awards any time soon.
Run by a charming manager (though not all staff share his friendliness), Jalico is one of the best-value hotels in Khulna, with large, spotless rooms and good city views...
If it weren’t for the crazy road noise this would be a real find. It’s bright, well lit, clean and friendly. For budget-hotel prices you get midrange standards.
Hotel Mid Town
A strict hotel with a list of rules a mile long including a no-woman policy, which is a shame because it could do with a bit of a female touch. If you’re a bloke on a tight budget then it’ll do for a night or so...
A very basic lodging – not only are the rooms only for the most hard core, but they’re also highly overpriced. There are a couple of other similar places nearby.
Hotel River View
Clearly marked, and overlooking the hard-to-miss lotus-flower roundabout at one end of NS Rd (Kushtia’s main drag), this friendly hotel is easy to spot and has clean rooms that are good value despite being a little cramped...
Hotel Royal International
If ’70s disco is your favourite music then the décor at the Royal will please. The all-in-one desk/table/window combo in the rooms are especially funky and you can’t fault the price. The service is pretty lacklustre though...
A bit on the shabby side, but a decent budget-to-midrange option with clean, air-conditioned rooms, a very central location and an OK restaurant. Has a few, slightly cheaper non-air-con rooms available too.
There isn’t much to pick between this and the Hotel Bangkok. Singapore might get a little more light but to counter this the rooms are a little tattier. Very little English.
Simple, spartan rooms come with desk, chair, TV and whitewashed walls. Bathrooms are wincey and squat-loo only, but this is the cheapest acceptable place in town. Not much English spoken.
Larger rooms than at the nearby Society Hotel but because it’s dirtier, it’s the inferior option.
New Safe Hotel
This friendly hotel, above a motorbike showroom, was pretty much brand new at the time of research so it should still be in decent condition by the time you read this...
Also known as Hotel Pashur, this is the nicest place to stay in Khulna. It’s across the river (an easy Tk 2 ferry ride) from town, and is right by the bus stand...
Western Inn International
All in all, this is probably the best hotel in Khulna. Rooms are pricey, admittedly, but they are huge and come with free wi-fi, spotless bathrooms and balconies overlooking a ragged, tree-shaded garden...
