This is the second time I've stayed at the Colombo Hilton. The friendliness of the staff and general service is very high. The hotel itself it rather outdated (think bottle opener on the bathroom wall but no electrical outlets by the desk) and is undergoing a renovation but it's unclear what they are renovating or when it will be done....

We have stayed at thee Hilton Hotel Colombo whenever we have visited Colombo, Sri Lanka over the past 20+ years. We have found the Hotel staff to be attentive, polite and courteous always. The food at the Spices Restaurant is great. The buffet breakfast provides a good selection of food, not only of Sri Lankan origin, but also Indian and... More

This is a rather boring business hotel. The room was rather worn but the service level was OK (dry cleaning, room service etc). Slow internet though. The view from the room was also rather sad (some railroad tracks and a distant beach etc) although being on the 8th floor The reception area and the cafe and bar is completely without... More

The hotel is good from all angles. Reception employees very nice, fast and efficient, warm welcome, providing welcome drink, and offering different room options. Room is good in size and equipped with all what guest needs to have pleasant stay. Location was so good as it is central in the city. Hotel taxi was excellent. Restaurant is good there, fits...

The Hilton Colombo is a business hotel, located in the business district of Colombo. It offers decent rates and caters to large tour groups as much as to the business traveller. The breakfast buffet is nothing short of spectacular, with exceptional Sri Lankan cuisine. In fact, it was so good that I never bothered to try the western or Indian... More

I always stay at this hotel when going to Colombo since it is at 5 min's walk from my meeting venues. But the hotel is great, staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Rooms old and can wait 15 minutes for the lifts. I expected more from a Hilton hotel. The place is under rennovation which may help down the track but means at present the experience is not warranted by the room charge. Staff are very friendly and the breakfast also very good.
