You cannot park in the front even to unload your bags, the car park is across the road about 50 meters down. Reception was not welcoming and we seem to have been taken up in the goods lift, down past heaps of excess furniture (unused for sometime). There was excess furniture outside in the hall on every floor & all...

Pros: 1.The restaurant waiters and security staff were friendly,warm and caring. 2.The rooms were large and spacious. 3.Complimentary wifi was exceptional. Cons: 1.There are so many unnecessary furniture lying around the corridors making the place look like a garage. 2.TV is really small 3. Looks like the AC Vents were not cleaned in a long time .

This hotel the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was amazing. We didn't swim in the pool which was small and off the restaurant. The room was large but outdated. It was clean. Just needs a revamp. Would stay here again

I booked this hotel despite poor reviews as it was close to my place of work/business. It was an average hotel at a slightly expensive price. It is better to book online in Indian currency through any travel portal, otherwise it is more expensive. The hotel is probably one of the oldest in Colombo, rooms were ok, they clean daily,...

“Ring reception direct and discuss your needs and if booked direct you may get it at a much cheaper price than going through website agents. The two rooms we booked were excellent, very spacious, clean and equipped with all required facilities, including large attached bathrooms. As the hotel is located in a semi residential area, some rooms may have views looking into neighbouring residences, like one of our rooms had, though it did not bother me, as we out during the day and returned to have a good nights rest and a good breakfast (choice of Sri Lankan and Western) the next morning.”
