Also you can take any luxury bus of Chittagong and can leave at Comilla. A Train service is available from Dhaka too. I don't know information much about that train from Dhaka.

Where to stay:

There are few medium quality hotels in Comilla district. I think I've stayed at Hotel Moynamoti for one night. It was a budget hotel with very low facilities. Comilla is very close to Dhaka and it is possible to make a day trip from Dhaka and return back. I'd recommend to stay in Dhaka as there are plenty of top quality hotels there.
