Guesthouses and B&Bs
There are two ways of looking at this well-run guesthouse: either it’s a bit out of the way, so rather inconvenient, or it’s a quiet escape from the city-centre chaos...
Run by a highly deserving NGO that works on health, educational and agricultural projects throughout northwest Bangladesh, this fabulous guesthouse, housed in an ivy-clad red-brick building, has polished, spacious rooms, piping-hot showers in modern b...
Akboria Hotel & Restaurant
In the heart of the action but set back from the main road so not too noisy. Rooms are small but clean and some have terraces. Accessed from the main road through an archway. The attached restaurant does decent kebabs.
Archaeological Rest House
The small white building between the museum and Somapuri Vihar is a rest house. Staff at the museum can point you to the appropriate person if you want to stay. Great-value rooms are large, have attached bathrooms and are kept clean and tidy...
Archaeology Department Rest House
There’s no need to spend the night here, as Bogra is so close, but this simple rest house has a nice village feel to it if you’re sick of busy cities...
Basic cubes and lots of mosquitoes (net provided), but surprisingly comfortable beds and private bathrooms. Despite not being at all used to foreigners, the staff are super cool with the idea of you staying. There is no English sign, so ask around.
A three-storey building with an English sign and a charming old gentleman manager. The well-presented green and red rooms are tiny but relatively clean, and come with fans and mosquito nets.
About 200m from the main ‘Terminal’ bus stand, towards the town centre, is this bright new hotel with small but clean air-con rooms. Also does food.
A neat and tidy midrange option within easy stumbling distance of the train and bus station, which makes it ideal if you are just passing through. It’s big enough to ensure that there are always shiny, clean rooms available.
Hotel Al Amin Abashik
The more expensive rooms have sit-down toilets and more furniture and rooms of all prices come with that ever important mosquito net...
Hotel Al Rashid
Small, basic but tidy singles and doubles with desk, TV, fan and squat-loo bathroom. The manager speaks English.
Hotel Dalas International
The best budget option in town by some distance. Rooms are universally spacious and well equipped with TV, chairs and big beds. It’s handy for both the town centre and the bus and train stations...
Split between two separate buildings (opposite one and other) the Hotel Diamond is the best place in the city centre in which to stay...
Hotel Golden Tower
A decent midway option in the heart of the downtown mess. The staff don’t seem totally convinced by foreigners but if you get in you’ll find that the low-ceilinged rooms are neat and air-con cool.
Cheaper and less hygienic beds can also be found at the Hotel Metro but it doesn't contain the promise of a delightful night.
When we passed by the receptionist was a 10-year old boy...
Locals will tell you that this is the top address in the city centre yet, for some bizarre reason, only the single rooms come with air-con...
The most comfortable place to stay in the city centre, newly renovated Nice has reasonably smart, colourful rooms with TV, air-con and clean attached bathrooms with sit-down toilets...
On the main street, and the hotel everyone will point you towards. This is unfortunate because though the rooms themselves are okay, the bed sheets are far and away the most stained and grimy we’ve seen anywhere in Bangladesh...
Stay in a dark-green cell in this multistorey job opposite the bus stand (sign in Bengali only). It’s very friendly, shockingly clean and as cheap as Bangladesh gets, which is very cheap indeed.
You can’t grumble at the price and the rooms are reasonable, though ask to see a few first as some (the better rooms) have old sacks as carpets – novel, we’ll grant you, but possibly not the most desirable of floor coverings...
Easily the best place to stay in town, the spacious rooms are comfortable and offer what is, for Bangladesh, peace and quiet. It’s clean, friendly and the staff speak English. Located at the southern end of town.
The kindly English-speaking owner ensures that this hotel has a good vibe. There is a wide array of rooms from small depressing cheapies to comfortable and ample doubles with air-con. It’s clean, well-maintained and good value.
This happy budget option is on a quiet back lane and has welcoming, English-speaking staff. Simple but tidy rooms come with a desk and chair, and clean squat-toilet bathroom. No English sign. Look for a pastel-blue painted three-storey building.
