First the positive things: - They were flexible with breakfast. We had to leave at 6am and they packed us some sandwiches etc. to take with us. - Dinner was delicious, but it took very long to prepare (over 1 hour). So order early! - Air conditioning and TV were ok - Internet connection was better than in many places...

After having stayed here, I think that I'd be inclined to call the hotel a guest house just due to it's size. It is small but very friendly and comfortable. It is certainly tucked away in a residential area so I would have the cab call for directions otherwise it will be challenging to find. We arrived at 0200 due...

My wife, our two children (aged 8 and 6), and I stayed at this hotel from September 23-25. The hotel is quite nice, and our third floor room was very good. BREAKFAST - The breakfasts were pretty good (toast, eggs, sausages, coffee, etc.), and you can either eat it in outdoor, covered restaurant downstairs or ask to have it brought...

I have just returned from a very enjoyable, if exhausting short research trip to Colombo. The hotel arranged my transport from the airport and welcomed me on arrival at about 4:30 in the morning. The room was comfortable, with good WiFi which matters, with a decent selection of food. But the best part was just how friendly and accommodating all...

Room was clean and well-appointed, with a generous breakfast provided. However the location was a bit difficult to find (down a side street, at the end of an alley) so I suggest calling reception for specific directions before reaching.
