Food was well prepared and catered for all pallets. Breakfast is a buffet, with various different restaurants for evening dinner. Well located for the city - tutus tw abound, offering... More

Very nice, big, more of a business type of hotel. Mostly transit passengers stay in the hotel and airways crews too. I felt like it's a cosmopolitan with multinational visitors. It has beautiful restaurants, food is responsible price and food is international standard. There is a walking distance mall next to the hotel.

I have stayed at a few hotels in Colombo in the last two years and usually prefer boutique hotels here like Casa Colombo and Paradise Road. However, because I had a very early morning flight I chose the Cinnamon Grand and was very happy with it. It is an enormous 501 room hotel with 14 cafés and restaurants. I had... More

First tine here in Sri Lanka, had such an enjoyable stay. Was tossing between hotels in colombo prior to coming. Was comparing The Kingsbury, The cinnamon lakeside and a few other hotels near by. Definitely made the right decision choosing the cinnamon grand. Such a beautiful hotel, with new modern facilities. Rooms were luxurious, the pillows were so comfortable to... More

According to people in Sri Lanka, Cinnamon Grand is the best hotel on the island. If the people in Sri Lanka are right, then the rest of the hotels must suck balls. My room was in the courtyard wing (the older wing) and it faced a junk yard parking lot with crows hanging outside my window. The bathroom was small,... More

We spent 2 days here (making use of the day rate till 8pm on the second day) as a stop over on our journey. We had an executive room which is well worth the extra money. The service is very good. Our butler was very helpful. However the breakfast offered in the executive lounge is small. The general breakfast buffet... More

I have stayed at the Cinnamon Grand twice, and the most recent stay was for a week. The staff were very attentive and the rooms were comfortable. One big benefit of staying here was the wide choice of restaurants/bars/cafes. We tried about 4-5 of them, and were very impressed with them all. Tao restaurant was a highlight, and there is... More

The Cinnamon Grand is one of those very large and busy international hotels that you find in all big cities of the world. It doesn't have much charm, but it offers all the modern comfort you expect from this type of establishment - and in Sri Lanka where things can be a little hectic, it really matters. I don't think...

The hotel is fantastic, especially compared to the other option in Colombo. The two main issue I had were firstly, Colombo is going through a boom and therefore there are lots of construction sites / roadworks .etc. everywhere, including in front of the hotel. This results in dust and some noise. Of course this is not the fault of the... More
