Ramada is a very bad choice for business, family or long stay (more than 4 days) customers at this point of time. There are better hotels in Colombo for the same rate or surprisingly lower rates.

I participated in the SriLanka world Conference on Youth last may and we were assigned to this hotel. It was the single worst hotel experience of my life.

For some reason, my room was not cleaned during my stay (I stayed for two nights),... More

The hotel has quality and the employees are very friendly. Everything was great during our stay except that we need to pay to use the wifi... I still don't understand why. The breakfast has great quality and variety.
