The room was very, very basic. The room next door had a late night party, but to the front desk's credit when we called down to complain, they dealt with the problem immediately. One of the bell men looked out for us, giving us directions and advice when we needed it. Had problems finding reasonable convenient lodging in Colombo, and... More

We were with our family the hotel were located in a good location but the housekeeping service were too much poor rooms were not clean enough . Not a suitable place to stay with family becuase we have seen many prostitutes hanging here and there it was horrible at night time. And no value for the money.

I was here for one night at the end of a group tour. My room, on the 7th floor, was basic, stank of smoke and the shower door was coming off its hinges. It was definitely not a pleasant stay. However, others on my group who were on the 8th floor had much nicer rooms. Maybe the hotel is still... More

The Pearl City Hotel is a straight forward budget hotel that is well located in Colombo (at least for tourists). Hotel service was OK, and reasonably responsive to issues as they came up - (safety deposit in room had a flat battery). The room on floor 8, was of moderate size and had all the facilities I would expect apart... More

A very basic hotel but in a good location near to Galle Road, about 10-15 mins drive (depending on traffic) from the main centre. We asked to change rooms as the 2 rooms allocated to our group stank of smoke and had no natural light at all. They don't really actively discourage smoking in rooms which is a problem. Luckily...

Very old place hanging on perhaps because it's now pretty inexpensive. Old fashioned in most ways including the clubby bar, small rooms and creaky elevators. But it's fairly well located for most purposes.
