I'm having a hard time finding value in this price range ... as a 'flashpacker' gag. What it is ... a decent enough hotel. Nothing too fancy, nice gardens, very nice pool. Paid 65 USD all in, for breakfast (one step up from 'meh'), and a top floor room. Large room, hot water, clean, quite .. 2 balconies! A mini... More

This review is for the in house restaurant. They served really sub standard food. We were a group of seven and ordered five different dishes and all of them was a bit bland. The hotel itself has nice mix traditional architecture and modernity the pool side was a nice plus. I can't further comment on the facilities here.

My recent stay at the Palm Beach hotel with my family was for just a day but the stay was enjoyable. We checked in late afternoon and found the hotel comfortable and service attentive. We had a room on the first floor and another on the floor above. The first floor room proved to be better with a direct access... More

A charming hotel. We had a massive room with a huge bed and space for seating area. Very old but clean. Unfortunately no tea coffee making facility, and the bathroom could have been better but nevertheless I did like this hotel and would stay there again. Staff were very nice, and the food was good.

Palm Beach is an old colonial style hotel, the rooms are spacious, some have problems with the showers, but in general fit for a nice stay. The breakfast is copious and gently served, we have dined twice in our stay and the restaurant serve delicious spiced dishes, I recemend the Sri Lanka cuisine, The swiming pool is, for sure, the...

Staying in Palm Beach hotel Colombo is a low cost luxurious experience, hotel is located in a residential area but very close to Mount Lavinia beach, it is hardly 4 - 5 minute walk from sea and almost 6 - 7 minute walk from main road which is called Galle Road, I must say that rooms are large in size...

We stayed at the Palm beach hotel for 5 nights in November 2014, the good points are the size of the rooms which were huge and the staff were very friendly. The pool maintenance man and staff were around each morning cleaning the pool and surrounding area offering mattresses for the sun loungers to anyone who was swimming and sun... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night only, the rooms were comfortable and well appointed but with need of up dating. I can imagine that when the hotel first opened it was very grand but the lack of maintenance over the years has taken its toll. The breakfast was also very disappointing. The staff are few and far between and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights - the room was massive, beautiful and very clean. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The pool was great because there were not much people using it. And finally the location was great too, less than a 5 min walk to the beach! All in all we were very happy with our stay... More

booked to stay 3 nights but we extended it to 6 nights as we found the stay pleasant. When we arrived on our first day we were not happy with the room as we were given twin beds when we had requested a double bed. The staff were able to offer us another room that was to our satisfaction. The... More
