I stayed in a fee different single rooms in Global Towers. Some were bigger and better appointed than others. The ones on the 5th floor were best, larger than the rooms on the 3rd floor. Global towers has an excellent Indian food buffet on Saturday nights. Not cheap by Sri Lankan measures but excellent tasty and fresh dishes. Breakfast buffet... More

I booked in at the last minute for 3 nights but stayed 5 as I really enjoyed the whole experience. I was given an ocean flat apartment really with 2 balconies .The views were amazing and breakfast on the balcony was very pleasant. There were early morning train noises and traffic on the road below but I felt it was... More

Pretty poor... pool permanently closed (due to high chlorine levels). Location poor. Restaurant food very very poor quality for what you pay (KFC next door is better if that is possible) and the bar is pretty inept. Why is there permanently a policeman on the front door beside the door staff. Choose somewhere better than this place.

We stayed here for 2 nights. On the 1st night, my mother and I got such a small room at the far end of the hotel, that there was barely any place to even move. When we complained, we were told that this was because we have requested for twin beds in the room, while the room can accommodate only... More

On the whole I enjoyed my stay in this Hotel. The room was well furnished and the staff were very polite and courteous! It was clean everywhere and maintained very well. My only suggestion is the staff at the reception should be well informed and follow up should be proper.

The only thing global about the Hotel is the TV. This is the only place where where you will find all language channels. Apart from that the hotel, its rooms, the management & anything associated with the hotel sucks. The day we reached a front desk female was handed the keys to show us to our room. While we were...

Nice hotel located on the beach but access to the beach is not direct. There is a road and railway line between, But it is a nice surrounding and view . Close to some shops and good eat outs close by. Food was good and service good. However, there was a party on the terrace whose loud music went on... More

We were a group of 8 family members. Upon arrival, we had lunch. One of the best Nasi Goreng we have ever had - delicious on our travels, and comparable to what we get in Malaysia or even better. Service was good. As we are families, we were accommodated in 1 3 bedroom apartment and another triple share room. The... More

Sucks. Had a good 15 day vacation having come from USA, but this hotel and staffs ruined our last two days of pleasant moments. Bad customer service, dirty floors, promises not kept, overpriced with tiny rooms with nothing in it. Very very disappointed. Nothing like the pictures we saw.
