“Good for conferences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

My organisation held a two-day conference here and it was quite a good experience. The marketing staff is helpful and the per person prices are fairly reasonable with okay ish food. The tea-time snacks are alright too. One drawback however is that you would need to insist on one person handling your account (or that is what I requested because co-ordination becomes a bit of hassle if not) but overall I was quite happy as were those who attended.

All the services given by staffs are in a very much appreciated level. Service staffs were polite, foods were great though less variety in room service menu. Rooms were tidy and clean. Services were faster than many other hotels.
We were not happy on arrival as we were given a twin bed instead of double bed. But they change it at same moment, but non smoking room then. Check out was bit confused, may be information provided to reception was incorrect. I should thank everyone for being prompt to any request.
Recommended for couples on short trips or Business stay. Shopping centres and other food outlets are reachable distance by walk. I can assure you will not be disappointed by choosing it.

Stayed here for a couple of days in May 2014, we got a sea facing room, quite a big room at that.. very comfortable,clean, pleasing and helpful staff. The pool is a bit small and we did not find time to chill out there. Easy to get tuk-tuks from the hotel to get to different sight seeing spots in colombo. Breakfast was good and tasty. The Kollupitiya station is just a 10 min walk away from the hotel, recommend a ride on it to get a taste of the local life...

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view room in the new wing

Hotel was very clean, room exceeded expectations, a drink by the pool on the roof is a must at sunset beautiful view of the sea. Breakfast was average. Location isn't the best but only ever a tuk-tuk ride away from most areas of Colombo.

Nothing great about this Hotel, except that it is located close to the business district. Amenities in the room were very basic, though the room was reasonably clean. There are a few restaurants on the lane opposite to the hotel and that may be a better option to eat out.
The worst breakfast I have ever had in all my 30 years of travel in hotels of similar price. Besides, you have to walk across the road to grab this poor breakfast. The hotel is completely insensitive to vegetarians. It took about 20 minutes to get a cab in front of the hotel.

I stayed here for 2 days from 18th to 20th and the rooms shown to us and the rooms given were very different. The AC in the rooms were pathetic and even after complaining about it nobody came to fix it, the food was also really bad.. No choices for vegetarians at all except bread and omelette. The staff aren't very polite and when we showed them the room we saw and booked they just argued saying that these were the rooms we booked so we have to stay in those itself. Beds were pathetic too. Couldn't sleep well and had a sore neck in the morning. Also they smelt like cigarettes and alcohol probably from the previous guests. Really disappointed and would not recommend to anybody
