i had to stay in this hotel, while flying through srilankan airlines, as my connecting flight was on the next day. I was given a complimentary stay, but really got disappointed by the services. The soap bottle in the washroom was almost empty, and its hanger was broken. The shower was also broken and leaking from all attachments. I couldn't... More

We were not told by our travel agent that our baggages could not be claimed since this hotel is inside the airport. (our luggages were loaded directly to tomorrow's domestic flight to Male). So, if stay in this hotel, people do not need to pass through immigration. Undoultly, here is a choice to rest after a long flight. However, the... More

It was with some trepidation that I went to this hotel, having seen the Tripadvisor reviews but I was vey pleasantly surprised. The en-suite room was excellent and, contrary to what I had read, the staff were exceedingly pleasant. It is a transit hotel so is a bit noisy with people coming and going, putting on TVs loudly and children... More

We stayed at this hotel during our 8 hours layover in Colombo. Hotel is conveniently located in second floor (one floor above departure/arrival level) and was easy to find from signage on the wall. Room was spacious, clean and provided us with essential toiletries. Overall, a great place to stay for shorter layover (anything longer than 7-8 hours will be... More

Stayed here during a 9 hour layover between flights. We did not have an advance booking and I think we were lucky to get a room....definitely advisable to email and book ahead. Absolutely excellent - we had a massive room, spotlessly clean. Receptionist was very helpful. Bed comfortable and shower good. Only negatives are that 1 pillow each is not... More

We had a 17 hour layover between flights and this hotel is a few steps before you go through immigration. It is one floor above the main concourse. The Sri Lankan staff were helpful in the airport and on check in. The room was big, clean and the staff readily provided more water and blankets. The air conditioning is over... More

We decided to break our trip before heading out to Maldives by spending the night at the Serenediva. We bought our hotel vouchers with Sri Lanka airlines along with our tickets (which was cheaper than buying it direct). and booked for a triple room. They gave us a king size bed + a roll away bed (which they set up... More
