Soni's place is an excellent, comfortable, stay in the heart of Gulshan - one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Dhaka; so much so that I actually extended my original stay. Soni and Rakib are quite nice people and are often around if you have questions or want to chat - but the room is very private. I would stay here again.

I must say that I had a very bad experience of staying with them. Soni is mostly nice, but I had issues with her husband. Since they live together and run a business together, future tenants can never get away with interacting with her husband - Hence I need to leave this feedback. Here are examples of things that I came across: - I was asked by Soni's husband to move to a different room at one point because they have other potential guests. He told me something like: "You have to move, because on August 1 Bangladesh contracts are usually renewed (Note: my stay in AirBnB was from mid July to 8th of August, and nothing to do with Bangladesh culture). You have to help us to look for good roommates (Note: I did not ask them to look for a roommate). You can easily deal with another room for one week!" I reacted strongly and he said something like: "I just asked you! Why are you getting serious? OK you can stay in the room." After then he did not pick up my call, and interacted with me from the next day as though nothing has happened. Whatever the truth is, it really sounded like they thought I was passive and easy. - Soni apologized me for this later, but her husband never apologized for this. He acted as though it was my fault. - He moves things in my room when I was out without permission (moving out the couches in the room and moved all my things on the couch.) - He always entered my room without a (noticeable) knock. In the end, I talked to Soni and she also admitted that her husband has communication problems. But I found especially the first experience extremely dishonest. I have been to Bangladesh 7 or 8 times for my research, interacted with many people, and yet this is the most disgusting experience I have ever had in this country. I find Bangladesh people in general sincere and honest, and I hope future guests to Bangladesh will not "judge" Bangladesh based on the experience staying with them.

Response from Soni:
I am really speechless and shocked to read such this type of review!! ( I am hosting ppl for last five years and through AirBnb two years only). Firstly i wanted not to write any review as Yuhei told me "Sorry" several times against his wrong activities held within his staying time in my (URL HIDDEN) he forced me write these responses.Now I have to say- It was most worst experiences in my hosting period last five years.!! After his starting living with my place,few days later,One of my other guest informed me that "We need to aware about Mr Yuhei.He kept rotten raw fish in the kitchen last three days which made the whole appartment smelling like a garbage bin and also it seems impossible to stay at (URL HIDDEN) you don't take any step immediately then I might be leave your apartment." The guest also informed me -he left notes for Mr Yuhei about that smelling garbage but he(Yuhei) was not aware that time and didn't take any attempt until I went there and clean the (URL HIDDEN) I asked about this issues,Yuhei replied "Sorry"!! He wrote at the review: we moved things in the room while he was outside and without permission. But smoothly forgot to write that,firstly he changed my room furniture settings and used my Sofa set as a cup-board and cloth-drying-hanger instead of using Cup-board which I provided in the (URL HIDDEN) I asked about these issues,his reply was "Sorry"! My other guest also talked to him and informed -pls do not keep wet clothes,bags,other staffs on that expensive Sofa set.But he used continuously until I took initiative and remove my Sofa set to other room which is not listing furniture.For thats why-I don't feel to ask him to take his permission. He also broke my AirBnb house rules several times.Like- bringing outsider people without informing me,going late night outing freqently and come back after midnight etc.When Me & my husband asked him about these issues,his reply was "Sorry!!".Later we found-these activities happened repeatedly until he left my place. He pointed about some issues of my Husband and hide smoothly real scenario and quoted just part of sentenses.He totally avoided what my Husband asked him with request and offered other better room if he wishes to.He was informed if he kindly shift to master bed-room for rest of seven days (fraction time) that would be helpful for us to hosting other guests.If he dont agree we will find out another way.And he messed up the total issues with wrong understanding and expresses in review wrongly.In these way,my husband knocked his door to discuss about those issues but everytime he didn't feel to come out to discuss and tried to avoid my husband keeping him stand outside long time.And he forgot that we are host here,not liable to explain every moments of our activities to him. There are more examples I can present here but it would be just waste of time.Besides these,several times we invited him during occassions and tried always to taking care of him.But he made me really shocking to write the review.Before he left my place,I said him- "Pls appolozise if any issues happens willingly/unwillingly by me or my husband.And thank you for staying my place"- which is my regular practises with every guests before leaving my places.And he used these practise against me.It was really bad experinces for me as I hosted him and for that I am really sorry. Mr Yuhei,I wish your success on your Ph.D research and bright future even after those issues happened with me.THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!!

I had a very nice stay with Soni and her family. I was there for one week while looking for more permanent accommodation in dhaka. The apartment is fully equipped and quiet, and Soni and her family are very friendly and helpful. They helped me in my search for a new place, and to settle in the city. I recommend them highly.

Soni made me feel right at home upon arrival at this clean and comfortable flat. She and her family are incredibly accommodating and pleasant to be around. If you like a good conversation, Soni loves to chat. The neighborhood is quiet compared to other neighborhoods in Dhaka, and is in a pretty central location.
