great view to the marine drive, and never ending sea. The blissful sounds of waves breaking onto the shore experienced in a City Hotel. Friendly staff and good quality F&B. Area has multiple food options from Srilankan to Indian to Thai. Access to the Majestic City was easy.

It was nice to feel welcome. From the concearge at the entrance, to the reception staff, and the porters. Their professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness made our stay very enjoyable. Especially on arrival from the heat outside the welcome drink given to us was appreciated. The restaurant buffet both Western and Eastern was always well presented with plenty of variety. There...

I have a chance to visit Sri Lanka and stay at Global Towers Hotel. I went with my colleagues in a staff trip. The hotel is located very near to the beach. The travel agent showed beautiful pictures of the hotel and which raised my expectations, but in reality it was different. The hotel was clean and food was good.... More

Stayed here for two nights for a company holiday. We stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment unit with a kitchen that was very sparsely equipped (only a kettle with coffee making facilities which seemed very lacking in a kitchen built as big as it was), but we spent all of our time in our own bedroom as each bedroom is independantly...

On a one week visit to Columbo, I needed a place near my place of work and Global Towers, right opposite to the Wellawatta beach was ideal. Located close to commercial places and at the same time in a isolated location on the banks of the beach , The rooms are neat and good service. The breakfast was a widespread... More

Though the hotel reception and lobby is not that impressive, the room I stayed in had a great view. The tiny balconies are nice to sit out and enjoy watching the waves crashing. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bathroom was especially spacious. The hotel really looks like an apartment building though - they have apartments with... More

View is great I stayed in a corner room. Still it was a sea view room. Rooms are not that specious. Enjoyed the food of Special Jafna Food Festival. It was a great experience (but they should reduce the spiciness.)

Global Towers is going to have to work hard to keep its customers in the future. Many interesting hotels are being built in the area. The Apartment was a good size with lovely views BUT it was not clean enough. The toilets seats were dirty and the kitchen not up to standard. Someone needs to take responsibility for checking the...

I stayed at the Global Towers Hotel two weeks ago. I was impressed from the time I walked in to the Reception. Greeted with a smile and welcoming gestures from the staff made me feel very comfortable.
