The hotel offers the service that you expect from a Taj. For some reason, I ended up with an allergy at the property however, the hotel staff tried their best to find the reason and solution to the problem. The breakfast was simply amazing.

From moment of arrival to checkout, the Taj Colombo lives up to its rating and reputation. Modern upscale appointed rooms that are kept impeccably clean. A fitness center staffed with trainers to assist. A restaurant with wide variety of well prepared foods. We loved the breakfast buffet that offers an array of regional foods from European continental to Indian paratas.... More

The hotel was recently renovated but other than the lobby, did not find anything much changed from before. the food has got better. The Indian food here is just awesome and the best you can find in Colombo. The chef was personally in my room to ask if there was anything special that I needed. What more do you need?... More

I went for the Lunch buffet at Latitude restaurant last week. Food was average compared to some other major hotels in Colombo however, they did have a variety of vegetarian food as well. Although the furniture seems a bit dated atmosphere was quiet, enjoyable and the staff friendly and attentive.

We have stayed with Taj many times in India Mumbai which we used as a benchmark when booking in sri lanka. The service and communal areas are fantastic but the room we were allocated dated /worn out. We were eventually upgraded to slightly better (still unrenovated) room with proper shower but told we need to pay additional $70 per night... More

The hotel is fully renovated tastefully. The food amazing. Service very appealing. Chef dipalkar made the best veg wraps I have ever had at pebbles the cafe. As we were a large group the hotel put on a great entertainment programme. The bar chief fascinated the ladies with his antics, a fabulous hotel.
