Stayed in Grand Oriental, Colombo as my Sri Lanka itinerary was a package. Its an old hotel on the harbour in Colombo. Location is excellent (Colombo 1 district) with World Trade Towers and Dutch Hospital (nice eating places) are at walking distance. The beach is also close. Wi-fi is complimentary and it works, the breakfast is decent.
However the rooms are old, toilets are in bad shape - both need major makeover. They have large poster beds which are squeaky. The bathrooms knobs, walls are like not repaired and need urgent repairs. Towels etc. are not fresh.... its not value for money .... I would never prefer to stay here again. We had requested for an extra bed but what they gave us was a triple room with Twin beds - no king size bed which is again a disappointment.
