This is a great hotel if you're travelling as a group, as each of the 3 floors has a lounge and dining area, as well as between 2 and 4 (I think) bedrooms.

The only thing that i can say about this hotel is that it's very close to the airport, only 10 minutes, compare to 1 hr from downtown Colombo. The staff is very helpful but the language is difficult. It was hard just to find the hotel.

Very nice hotel, super clean, the friendliest staff I've met on my trip. The room are a good size, and again, clean. lounge area for breakfast, even all you need to iron your clothes. Always someone at reception so ok to check in late. Good value.
