Room amenity very poor,but staffs are friendly. I can say that the place was the worst hotel I´ve ever been in Colombo. So run down that even if they clean it properly, It wouldn´t have helped. Then move another hotel who fully occupied, we felt we had no choise but to take the room here with no window curtain.

Firstly the pros, location and a/c worked. Other than that, this place is pretty awful. The bed was like a brick and my sheets felt like they were plastic (I kid you not). The rest of the room was acceptable, though you can only get wifi in the reception and bar area! It is the bathroom that made me feel... More

this is an intriguing place, would say the right name is KITSCH. You never know what you are going to find there, a luxurious bath with demodé shower ? we took it as a good joke but cant complain except that they made us pay in advance and leave a deposit on plus. The location is very good.

It's a budget hotel, situated in a great part of town - Galle Road. The lobby area looks fresh and attractive; the rooms are a bit run down and shabby. There's no in house restaurant or room service, only a bar menu is kept in the rooms. There is a Korean restaurant, but the board is in Korean, and it's... More

Juliana Hotel is probably the best bargain hotel in Colombo, because it is in the heart of the city, where the hotels range from $100 upwards, but it still maintains decent rates. However, service is lacking, there is no breakfast included, and only one Korean restaurant, so this is a great hotel to sleep at, and spend the days roaming... More

This hotel should be renamed bed bug and biting insect haven. Terrible! Would never recommend anyone to stay here. Bitten hundreds of times. Headboard was infested with tiny mites and the bed bugs were huge crawling both on the head board and the sheets. When deciding to move out to another hotel, to add insult to injury the hotel would... More

Had to eat out good restaurants in walkable distance. Thai massage is what i liked in the hotel. Worth the money spent. Staff courteous but very lazy and... More
