Probably not the cheapest chain hotel in Colombo, however the Taj hospitality is unrivalled, cleanliness is a virtue, food for a buffet is first class. Swimming pool is a good size and a good chill out area. Nothing to do with the Taj however,...

This is an overpriced average Hotel not worth the price they charge and the rooms are old and need of repair. Not recommended at the price and Level... While I am staying here found the balcony door not functioning and had to be fixed... This is lack of proper maintenance.
