“Overpriced and dated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Colombo has many mid-range hotels, the Indra Regent is one of those but while in the lower half for quality it prices itself above that.

Price aside the hotel is clean and the rooms basic but presentable, on the positive side the Indra Regent is easy to find for tuk-tuk and taxi drivers (more of a challenge than you'd think) and well located for the sea front train stations and only a short trip to Fort train station.

The attached restaurant is excellent, specialising in India food it is both well priced and offers some wonderfully cooked dishes (tandori and byriani were very good).

In my opinion this makes an ideal overnight stop before moving on from Colombo but not somewhere to speand any more time.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are quieter, make sure you ask when booking. And very limited for twin r...

We had trouble to find a hotel not full in colombo at this period, trying also not to be too far from the center. The location of the hotel is convenient
As for the rest, the hotel stays incredibly pricy (60 USD for a night, breakfast excl) compare to the standart they are trying to sell. The room was really simple, the clealiness of the bathroom was really limit and really close by you have a discotheque that believe it or not but on a monday is full on and playing loudy and crapy music. The staff was however nice but with an important number of rooms maybe keep this hotel as a back up plan.

Compared to other tourist destinations, here again Colombo accommodation is expensive - Sri Lanka is just not competitive. Room was simple, single bed, ensuite, A/C, fan, quiet, clean, relatively dark with a view of an alley full of rubbish. No TV. Missed a minibar/fridge. Biggest disappointment was USD 4 an hour for slow Wifi (They could have had me as a repeat customer with free, strong Wifi.) Staff was friendly and helpful. Market across the street was handy. I saw no "arcade" and was not even aware that there was a night club in the building. About an hour's walk from the center of Colombo. After 2 days I moved around the corner to the Pearl City Hotel for slightly more (price negotiable) and much better facilities - even an ocean view!

Room Tip: My single room (on the back side) was a bit dark but had no noise issues (except for my snoring.)

I stayed at room 102 with no windows! The bathroom is infested by very small ants which one can hardly see as opposed to the black floor tiling, they are simply EVERYWHERE!
Another member to show up uninvited in my room was a big lizard which I had to call housekeeping to handle. Also the sinks are sometimes very smelly. However what made me change the hotel at once was when I discovered small cockroaches in the other twin bed of the room. In short this hotel is filthy and it seems that they are indifferent about it as it also seems they have other primary source of income from their so-called night club
