Positive : Location - Very close to Galle road and marine drive. Bus stop at 100m. Several shopping malls near by and eating places also. Staff - Friendly and helpful Room - average Negative - Not properly maintained. Dusty and not properly cleaned rooms. I feel house keeping service is not doing their job properly. Breakfast is average buffet which you can have at low priced restaurants. Things to do: Maintain the property properly with well trained staff. House keeping should be improved with quality staff with close superfician.
