I always stay in this hotel whenever I visit Colombo. Pros: Super price Beach View Very good location Good staff Cons: Just one - No restaurant - but can be adjusted as plenty of international cuisine available nearby. Or just get the McD, KFC DD# from the reception.

I enjoyed peeking at the local wedding downstair, the staff was friendly (i guess) and the location on Galles street was good (but they are nicer neighborhood elsewhere in colombo). However, The room was offensive to my five senses.

To be honest - I arrived at the airport late at night. I approached the tourist trap to book a hotel room, and I took the limousine-service for a whopping 2.800 RS. I knew it was my mistake - so I have to blame myself. The hotel looks awful from the outside, the lobby is awful and the corridors are... More

I always stay at Ranmuthu hotel due to its excellent central location, comfortable rooms and reasonable price though the hotel management has increased room rates noticeably (last time in 2010 I paid around 1600 Rupees while I paid 2500 Rupees this time in 2012! but compare to other hotels around, this is still the cheapest one!). The hotel staff is... More

I stayed in Ranmutthu for two days and two nights. Lovely beach and railway track outside the balcony. First night when I came to the room, I was a bit frightened because every time a wave hit the seashore, I could feel a jerk. Later, I got used to it and I enjoyed it's location. My conference was at Taj... More

Having not booked a room in Colombo for our first night the tuk-tuk driver took us to a couple of places. Schoolboy error meant we took the room without checking it out first. Cost was 4,500 rupees for double sea-view room so quite expensive, especially when we saw the room. The hotel was hot and humid inside, and although the... More

Compared to a few other places we tried, this was the best value. Double room for 2900 rupees with a sea view (and the view watching the trains chug by - but don't worry, not late at night). There IS a lift now, the rooms are spacious even though the decor is a bit last two decades! Staff are reasonably... More
