I was put up at this hotel for business work. Must say, it is a great location since its about 500 meters away from the coastal line (Marine drive). Food is not great. Small rooms with good hygiene though. The most disappointing thins was the poor wifi connection.

The location is fine - near the coast 10 min by tuk tuk from the fort station. But the hotel is way overpriced and poor value for money. It is old, not well maintained, mold all over bathroom, dirty dining hall, poorly functioning ac. You can do better for that price. And don't go for breakfast when you book, cause... More

Chicken curry was too salted so when we ask to waiter about this matter he said the chef doesn't like to heart the complains about the food he made I must say this is the... More

Stinky and dirty room. pathetic view and illumination in the room. very ordinary bathroom. no value for money. I wont recommend this hotel even if they half their rates. Because of the poor condition of the room, I could well imagine the condition of their kitchen and didn't have the courage to try their food!

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
