Don't be put off by its boxy, drab blue exterior. Shabby as it is, this is really among the better budget options in town. Overlooking the lotus-flower roundabout, it's a friendly place with clean but cramped rooms. Only the pricier air-con rooms have sit-down loos. The in-house Palki Restaurant does a decent Bangladeshi platter (Tk 150) and average Chinese food.
