Pros: 1.The restaurant waiters and security staff were friendly,warm and caring. 2.The rooms were large and spacious. 3.Complimentary wifi was exceptional. Cons: 1.There are so many unnecessary furniture lying around the corridors making the place look like a garage. 2.TV is really small 3. Looks like the AC Vents were not cleaned in a long time .

This hotel the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was amazing. We didn't swim in the pool which was small and off the restaurant. The room was large but outdated. It was clean. Just needs a revamp. Would stay here again

I booked this hotel despite poor reviews as it was close to my place of work/business. It was an average hotel at a slightly expensive price. It is better to book online in Indian currency through any travel portal, otherwise it is more expensive. The hotel is probably one of the oldest in Colombo, rooms were ok, they clean daily,...

Attended with friends for a get-together dinner. The service was ok and the food was alright for the function, though a bit expensive. There is a small car park in front of the hotel but could get filled up if there is a big group. If you are lucky, road side parking is available. There is only 1 lift (elevator)...

We (2 adults, and 2 kids, as tourists) arrived early (6 am) at this hotel, and the manager who initially said that there was no room available for early check-in, after talking to our local rented driver, gave us a just-checked out room by someone else. It was OK as we all needed to crash, and family was exhausted. They...

If you are staying a night or a couple of it, then the hotel is ok. The breakfast, although not a big variety, is delicious, the staff good, rooms spacious and the location is great. But it ends here. The hotel gives you a felling of congestion and its not maintained greatly. The wifi is not reliable.

“Paying in USD at check out actually turns out more economical.”

“Room 302 Very Spacious”

“Ring reception direct and discuss your needs and if booked direct you may get it at a much cheaper price than going through website agents. The two rooms we booked were excellent, very spacious, clean and equipped with all required facilities, including large attached bathrooms. As the hotel is located in a semi residential area, some rooms may have views looking into neighbouring residences, like one of our rooms had, though it did not bother me, as we out during the day and returned to have a good nights rest and a good breakfast (choice of Sri Lankan and Western) the next morning.”
