Hilton Colombo is a perfect MICE hotel. Large room inventory, spacious conferencing facility with breakout room options (all at same level). Perfect hotel location, easily accessible. Ball room is one of the largest in Colombo with high ceiling. Hotel is going through some renovation, so lobby was cordoned off, but that didnt hamper the arrival experience.

Room ventilation/air condition system was poor. Air temperature could not be controlled. Quality of air was poor. As a result I became sick after one night stay and had to suffer during rest of my holiday in Sri Lanka.

Lovely stay at the Hilton Colombo. Even though the hotel is undergoing renovation the staff ensured that we didn't feel any difficulties. The staff was so hospitable and friendly. Food at the restaurants were excellent. Beautiful view of the galle face green and Beira lake from the room.

Stayed here in April just before flying home so never managed to try all the hotel amenities. The club lounge staff were very friendly, chatty and polite. The bedroom was a little dated, but it was for one night to just have a few hours sleep before catching an early morning flight so it fit the bill exactly. The room... More

Have stayed at this hotel a couple of times earlier too, wasn't a great experience this time. Place felt claustrophobic with all the renovations going on. Couldn't recognise the place as I walked in and double checked with the gateman if I was in Hilton :) Better avoided till renovation is complete. Staff are pleasant though !
