I Stayed at this property for 1 Night on 28 th October. We were in a family group of 6 Adults and 5 Children. So we took three tripple rooms.
The hotel needs a major renovation. It's a old property. The outer look of the hotel is also poor. But as Colombo is very expensive you cant expect much from a 2-3 star hotel. We just came to Colombo for a transit visit for 1 day so we didn't wanted to spend much so we choose this hotel otherwise there are many good hotels compared to this.
Food city Supermarket is just opposite to the hotel and location is very good in proper Colombo city.
Lobby is small but fully WiFi in lobby and room free of charge. They took little time to get check in us. Staffs were courteous.
As soon as we entered the rooms It was a colonial feeling. It looked an old room asking for changes in it. Room size was ok. Not too big or not too small. Minibar, TV , Electric Kettle and 2 bottle of complimentary water was there at it's place.
Bed Linens were average quality and stains were there on them. Bath linens were of good quality and neatly washed and scented. All toiletries were there in toilet.
Bathroom is Horrible. You don't have enough space to move around. 2 person can't go together in the bathroom. Sanitary wares were also of low standard quality. It's difficult to take bath for single person also.
Garden and swimming area is small but pool was very much clean and a bar was also there to enjoy your drink after swimming.
Overall I must say this is a very average property and for transit purpose it's ok because you won't get good hotels in Srilanka at a cheaper price compared to this.
