    Very functional hotel for a night's stay. Spacious room with air conditioner, boiler, tea/coffee and attached bathroom. (no toilet paper) No wi-fi. Sufficient parking space in front of the hotel. Breakfast is not complimentary,

    Location is handy, not far from Fort railway station (250/300 LKR). The building is quite old-fashioned and people nice. Rating drops because of the bathroom, cleaning was not sufficient, and the price, 50USD for a double room is too much.
