“It's fine”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed here after a week in Sri Lanka and it was a fine place to finish. The rooms were clean and the pillows were great!! My children enjoyed a swim in the pool while I enjoyed walking around the town from the hotel. We ate at the hotel and although the service was slow it may have been because they were so busy with all the cricket guests staying but the morning buffet was lovely.The only downside was paying for wifi.

Excellent hotel. It's almost perfect. Two reasons for not full perfection.
First reason: No free WiFi even in the lobby. You have to pay $15 to get one day access while internet is very cheap in SL.
Second reason: All elevators are centralized in one point which is not in the floor center. You have to walk a very long distance to reach your room if your room is on the left side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the left side as they are far away from elevators

Actually I'm still in the Cinnamon lakeside, Colombo, hope because of my comment hotel manager will make a good discount to me)))))))). Seriously, I like the hotel facility and service. Guys people here are very polite and kind, not just in the hotel but on Sri Lanka. you may ask Imran on the reception desk he will assist you as much as he can very nice hotel clerk and person.
the cuisine presented are very taste and adapted for European tourists. so I believe you won't be regret about visiting Sri Lanka and hotel specially.

Room Tip: ask Imran he will assist you!

We stayed only one evening in this lovely hotel. It has a variety of restaurants and bars, lovely pool and poolside bar and large fitness center.
One gets the 5 star feeling within the hotel.
The room service prices were very reasonable. Great inclusive breakfast buffet - highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the pool and lake.

Excellent Hotel and they have renovated the whole place.. We normally stay on the 7th floor with all the perks..! Superb venue, menu and excellent service. Staff is well trained for the job and always there to serve you. you do not have to check under the sheet or pillows like in India. Sri Lanka is a very clean and friendly and safe place to visit. You always get your money's worth. Have your breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and you don't have to spend on lunch! Such a fantastic selection of dishes!

Here you can ask for your air purifier... remember to ask for cinnamon oil!

Room Tip: Recommend 7th Floor. You can have a bit at the Executive Lounge any time. They make the best ever...

Previous Tripadvisor reviews of this hotel were very mixed, so we didn't quite know what to expect, however we were positively surprised. The lobby and entrence hall were spacious with a nice design and an efficient and helpful reception. We had a superior room (USD 190 all taxes and all included) on the 5th floor. Apart from the distinctive smell of moist that greeted us, the room was really nice and clean. You have to pay for the internet (10USD for 24 hours, very decent connection). Breakfast very good and large selection. Tried the Thai restaurant that was there, it was ok.The pool and outside area was nice too, they didn't serve any alcohol though, as it was a holiday when we were there. The hotel has a good location, a tuktuk will take you anywhere in Colombo centre in 10-15 min. You can book a hotel taxi to pick you up at the airport for about 26USD. All in all - we had a nice stay.

Right in the heart of Colombo. Clean and very 5 star. Room has a great view of the pool and lake, but smells like cigarette smoke.
