The lobby of the hotel is innovative, attractive, appealing to me. Likewise the excellent buffet restaurant. But the bedroom? This is US Hilton 1988. Beige, beige, beige. Remember those beige coloured horizontal light switches? Check. Cheap 'n cheerful timber dresser. Check. And it is old. E.g. at front of bedside table are the room light switches. These are in a...

I had a lunch buffet on a Monday and I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were very few tables available for walk-ins (tip reserve a table if you plan to go) the food was fantastic with options from sushi and dim sums to braised meats and even Indian food. The dessert was particularly great. The bed quality is...

In a chaotic city like Colombo you need a good hotel base and the Hilton certainly provides that. Location is great..for the Dutch Hospital, seafront , the railway station, taxis, buses and tuk tuks. The Hilton is a very big and a bit outdated hotel and is currently going through a much needed restoration. However taking that aside the Hilton...

There's something consistent about Hilton pillows that's a point of distinction / they're always very comfortable. On first entering this place it seemed a little dated & the dim lighting contributed. But we soon liked it a lot - & prefer thus lighting to the overdone white lighting in a lot of modern Hiltons. Breakfast options here fantastic. Exec lounge...

Hilton Colombo is a great option, especially for a frequent traveller. Comfy, clean, very friendly and courteous staff. The hotel is very close to the train station, which was ideal as we were returning from Kandy for 1 night before an early flight. We used the hotel concierge to the airport (5.5k Rp) - very well priced. Fantastic overall, thank...
