We stayed here at the end of June for convenience as I was travelling very early the next morning from Katunayake to Europe and my wife was catching an early Helitours flight from Ratmalana. We were checked in promptly albeit indifferently into a standard room which we had booked via Agoda. The room was very compact. However, the cleanliness of... More

We paid 8,000 rupees (negotiated down from a preposterous 10,000) for a night in a double room at Haus Chandra, and expected a stay to justify that price. Colombo is relatively expensive as Sri Lanka goes, so 8,000 is not unheard of, and cosmetically from the outside Haus Chandra is a good-looking place. When our flight was delayed by a... More

I loved staying at this hotel. However, the plumbing needs some work. There was always water on the floor of the bathroom. Otherwise, the staff is very, very nice. I highly recommend rooms 27 or 29 as the a/c works very well and there is a nice sitting area outside the rooms, although it is not air-conditioned and may be... More

I can see why other reviews vary so much. It depends upon perspective. It's a grand old building, dramatic architecturally, classic old furnishings, with friendly staff and near beach. Building maintenance seems very lax, however. Faucets and toilets leak and need work. Good meals are available in their beachfront open cafe or on its sandy beach, but rooftop restaurant not... More

A rundown disappointing hotel to say the least. Disgustingly filthy, moldy room. Towels not even washed. Questionable neighborhood. Do not venture out after dark. Restaurant one hour to serve a simple fried fish meal. Breakfast soggy toast, weak tea and runny old eggs.

The staff was extremely accommodating and hospitable. Great location near the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, family, solo, business, etc. Exceptional value also. Clean rooms and very nice.
