I had been to Colombo between 10th and 15th of October and stayed at The Soverign. I liked everything about it, Cosy rooms, well maintained decor, lovely ambience, a pool full of grown up coloured fishes, the lawns behind, the comfortable reception lobby and most of all the very co-operative and friendly staff.The morning breakfast is a grand meal.. you...

I had a business meeting in the area and despite the bad reviews the place had on TA I decided to check it out for myself. Conclusion....the bad reviews were too kind to this place. The bathroom's drain must have been clogged because 5 minutes into my shower the place was flooding. Televisions are prehistoric and in the morning you're... More

The hotel comes with a lot of false promises and even more hidden charges. It is just far from being a 3 star hotel. No elevator, Smelly rooms, moldy walls, irresponsible staff, this list could go on. For the price you pay for a dingy room in this hotel, you would rather go to a better, well established hotel.

Nice hotel, but it had it's days... mosquitos during night time, and this in a dengue prone area. No hotel bar. Rooms need definitely a brush up. No safe in the room, doors not closing, drawers cannot be opened. Had to stay only one night in the area, but will look for another accommodation next stay in colombo. It's a... More

The Hotel has a good location - specially if you have business in the new parliament/Government offices area. Rooms offer reasonably comfortable accomodation - though no frills or luxury. The Hotel has no lift. Maintenance could be much better - for example my bath had no shower curtain and taking a shower would wet the entire bathroom. The breakfast buffet... More

For a business trip one can plan to stay in this hotel but I would not recommend it for holiday goers. Staff is friendly but have to compromise on its services. Rooms were humid and smelly, pool is only for gold fishes, almost same the breakfast everyday with very less to offer, away from city hub so nothing much to... More
