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

Good for a night halt at Colombo Airport. I stayed here on my way back fro Shanghai and had to stay overnight to catch my connecting flight. Convenient as the hotel is situated inside the airport. The rooms were clean .Could not adjust the aircon and no blankets were provided. Got chilled at night. Other wise the stay was comfortable.

The hotel as always is good for a nights sleep. But then always I have found problems with there Aircon, which I could not adjust. Always ask for an extra blanket as the Aircon can chill you haif night. The staff is very helpful and very prompt in there wake up calls and reminders of your flight. The serc=vice boys... More
