My husband and I stayed here for one night while traveling through Colombo. We landed late at 10:30PM and the hotel was very nice to accommodate our late check in. The staff at reception was very nice and extremely friendly. They were eager to help us with everything that we needed. The room was spacious and clean and even had a balcony with a view of the city. The bathroom was quite decent as well. I’d definitely recommend staying here while in Colombo. It’s in a good location with many restaurants around. Contrary to the previous reviews, I thought the staff was great and the rooms were pretty clean.

I have been here for long vacation and untlimately ends up being in thia hotel longterm. This is hotel has no customer service, bizzar laguage been used by the receptionist cum cahsire. Managemt dont care about the customers, they all belive what the reseptionests says. No water, literally there is no water . Specifically towerds in the evening No hot water at all. If you need to have a wash you must call the receptionist and inform . The evilish receptionist name call Janani calls you at 7.30 am and if there is adelay then thats theend of the story. They charge big but not nevern giving daily complimentry water bottles even. If you stay for one night and the bed.linon is good then they will flip the covers upside and down and prepare fro the next customer airrivals. Complimentry towels offerd to customer is beenused to wipe the toilet .customer used towels been used to cleen toilet.floors after wasing the lavatory . No room.service for two days . As per hotel policy they dont change or clen the rooms for days if customer staying. Broken toilet equipments. Most of the rooms in the hotel has cheap hotel itmes such as ,beds and stiff sprin metress ,toilet equipments and ect .is not upto a standerd . Dingy elivator workes sometime and sometine its dont . Per room.one bedsheet and two soft pillows have been given even if there is two custowes stay at room. Overall this place is a horrifying experiance for me .though you have paid money, this is a place you cant expect customer service , they priorities money on the meantime customer is been treated very very bad . Starting from managemnt to ground level staffs . Last but not least price point they selling such a low scaled hotel really high. hence i would like to request tripasvosor to re evaluate the service standerds .

It was okay. Elevator was not working, good thing we are just in the 2nd floor. It's a bit dirty. The room is big and bathroom also. But it feels like it was clean few months back. There's a weird smell we came inside luckily it disappeared after some time. Location is near Pettah Market. A lot of shops and restaurants around.

When me and my partner arrived it completely set the tone for the whole stay. We arrived and they were in the midst of a powercut.. yet the lift was working (unnerving).. we were then taken to a room which had no toilet paper, lights weren’t working etc.. turns out after an hour of no electricity we had been taken to the wrong room. When they finally recitifed their mistake and we were taken to our correct room, and the power came back on, the power sockets (bar one right by the bathroom) did not work, the aircon system had a mind of its own (working 10% of the time) and again no toilet paper or free water (as advertised). The hotel itself was located down a side street to which no taxi driver knew it’s location, (which after a day of travelling is not what you want!) the facilities for food (ie the downstairs canteen) was filthy with buckets and cleaning products scattered everywhere and rubbish all over the floor! I loved Sri Lanka and every place I stayed in, however this hotel was a shambles from start to finish and I would whole heartedly recommend avoiding this place!

Seems like it is luck of the draw with what room you get from looking at the other reviews. Ours appeared to have been painted recently and was clean, can’t really ask for much more. Staff were friendly too. It’s close to the station but nothing within walking distance that’s noteworthy. I’d personally only stay here if you land late and have an early train the next morning. Not sure if it was lost in communication, but it seemed like they didn’t offer breakfast.
