“Global Towers Hotel, Sri Lanka -a must visit hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2006

Good value for the price. Wide range of room and suite sizes. My two roomies and I share a long-term, large, fully-equipped, 3-bedroom suite, c/w separate full baths, kitchen, living room, dining room space, five balconies, 200 metres from the Indian Ocean. Free use of the rooftop - with excellent views of the ocean and the city. Secure, clean, quiet... can't be beat.

South of Colombo's city centre, across Station Avenue from the rail-line (between you and the ocean); good beach, excellent restaurant in hotel - open 24 hours; pool/hot-tub, sauna, beauty shop, massage service, Gem/Jewellry Shop, Pastry Shop. Clean, efficient hotel-owned taxis. Smaller independent eateries nearby. Tuk-tuks (3-wheelers) at the main entrance for the adventurous shopper/tourist.

Global's staff is one of the most well-balanced groups I’ve encountered in my travels. And this applies to everyone from front desk to door-men, to maintenance, food preparation, dining room and room service, taxi drivers, and security personnel, They are uniformly polite, cheerful, accommodating, aware of guests’ needs, attentive to housekeeping and security requirements, and exhibit other positive features. Among their social graces, Global's staff is willing to share personal anecdotes and patiently explain Sri Lankan cultural and other features of daily life.

Altho’ quite engaging, Global's staff’s conduct is never intrusive. I recommend that my colleagues, family, and friends make this hotel their first choice for accommodation in Colombo. Unlike some other top-quality hotels, Global has a “homey atmosphere”.

Recommended for business or family travellers, short or long-term.
