Arrived straight from the airport, got a big room with balcony, all the staff was very nice and helpful. It is walking distance from most of the sites in central Colombo, shops, Dialog dealers and all you could need just down the street. Great value.

If you are looking for not expensive place for staying in Colombo it's perfect choice. Hotel has got good localisation - walk distance to Fort (15minutes), Pettah (half an hour), Beira Lake with Seema Malaka temple (less then 10 minutes) and Gale Face Green (10-15 minutes).Subramania temple is next to hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are clean but hotel is old...

“Rooms with balcony are all facing a busy and noisy main road in front of the entrance. All other rooms are more quiet. Furthermore and as already mentioned in another review, check that the windows can be opened and are provided with an insect net.”

“besides with or without aircon,,there are 2 type of rooms( little better room than just old little dirty room).and it seems like there is no strict rule = for what price for what room.. so try to get the better room with lowest price . If not, you lose nothing.”
