Also a sea food restaurant Beach Wadia just across the road - good food, but over priced. The restaurant in the hotel is reasonably priced, but the food is just fine, can not be called great. You have... More

Good hotel to stay if you plan to get around Colombo on your own. Easy to hire three wheelers outside the hotel. The staff are friendly and the room small but comfortable. The food is priced reasonably but not that great. However there are other fantastic options around Colombo.
