I can only say that the place was probably the worst hotel I´ve ever been to. So run down that even if they were to clean it properly, It wouldn´t have helped. After going to 5 other hotels who were all full, we felt we had no choise but to take the room here with no window, black mould in... More

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

Staff are friendly, good money exchange rate. very close to shopping areas. I like the massage chair, Piano & the pool table in the ground floor. seems the building is pretty old.
