I've stayed twice on business trips for total of about a month, and overall very satisfied. When issues did come up (first room had moisture/odor issue, for example; got moved to problem-free room and received extra fruit/drink tray for my trouble) , typically the management (Kasun and others) would do all possible to address and satisfy. Pool is nice (though... More

the rooms are a little old, but overall it is very nice. I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The breakfast and dinner buffets are very good. my only complain would be the AC in the room is really really cold. I had to turn it off on my second night.

Cinnamon Lakeside is the crappiest 5star hotel in Asia. The hotel's tag line is 'how may we indulge you'; however they made my stay the worse possible with arrogant managers, uneducated servers and an ignorant PR desk. The AC in my room was leaking all night and there was constant banging and repairs through the day next to my room.... More

Located in the heart of the City and is an amazing hotel. Went for the lunch buffet at the Dinning Room on Saturday which was an international buffet with a French theme. The food was extra ordinary and the service is excellent. Loved the ambiance of the hotel and highly recommend this hotel for any occasion..

Centrally located in the heart of Colombo, adjacent to a lake (hence the name) . Seek a room with a pool / lake view. Excellent restaurants with variety of cuisines to offer and a good breakfast setting as well (try the egg hoppers and coconut water) All in all a very good property, not the cheapest but certainly worth it....

This hotel exceeded all our expectations in regards to service, quality, atmosphere and amenities. The pool and recreation facilities are wonderful. The setting of the huge pool is spectacular. Rooms are large and well appointed. Service is at the highest level. There is lots of beautiful common areas to enjoy. We welcome an opportunity to return.

I have been to Colombo 4 times on business staying 4-5 nights on each visit. First time I have stayed in Cinnamon Grand, which was OK. The second time I stayed in Lakeside - returned there 2 more times, and frankly I will not stay anywhere else. The location is great, view of the lake is tranquil, the staff is... More

We stayed for 1 night only in the Cinnamon Lakeside, but would have liked to stay longer. The rooms were clean and well equipped with stunning city views. The staff were very nice. The restaurant was ok, but the choice of food was not as good as the other Cinnamon/Chaaya hotels we had stayed in.
