We stayed here for 2 days and it was the best stay in our entire vacation in Sri lanka over the christmas holidays. From our arrival to our departure we were treated like royalties and and offered great hospitality. I didn't feel that we were staying at a hotel, rather with a family. We were on the 14th floor delux room on B&B board (so glad we decided to go with the B&B). The rooms were very clean and spacious - 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, generous size living room and balcony. After a long flight from Canada with a toddler, we were able to relax here and recover by hanging out in the pool. There is also a kiddie pool and a play area for the children which my little loved. We had dinner at the poolside area and really enjoyed it. But the best part was the breakfast. We had the best breakfast here at Hilton Residence - they had everything from donuts to Sri lankan made to order dosas and egg hoppers. The staff were great. We enjoyed our stay very much. you can also exhange money at the hotel and the rate was comparable to the bank next door.

We had a comfortable stay in the Hilton Residence, we found the apartment spacious and clean.

We ate in the resturant near the pool wasn't great, but the main bar/resturant was very nice, the breakfast was good with lots of choice.

This hotel seems to attract more business guests, so as a tourist you can make use of the underutilised facilities, most of the time we were the only ones in the pool or sauna.

The main thing we didn't like here was the overwhelming service, we are independent travellers, and there were too many staff that were too eager to take your bags, hold the door open, ect, and the housekeeping staff are over eager to introduce themselves and make sure you are happy, bring you a fruit basket, newspaper, and so on.......

Also beware of 3 wheeler drivers in front of the hotel, they will probably rip you off and drive you all over town to places you don't want to go (as they did to us). Walk along the road a bit and flag down a three wheeler on the main road, or get the hotel to sort you a car out.

We had travelled from Galle to Colombo and arrived at around 4pm. To our dismay, the room was not ready when we arrived which meant waiting in the lobby area with our two small children who were very tired after a long journey. Check-in time is meant to be 12pm. We were not impressed with this start to the stay.

We stayed in a 3 bed executive suite on the 24th floor. Clearly, this had previously been a smoking suite as there was a pervasive smell of stale smoke throughout although the cleaners had tried to disguise this with copious use of air freshener. Overall, the suite was dated with 70s style decor but adequate for our needs with comfortable beds. The second two bedrooms were small with only a single bed. The master bedroom was larger and had an ensuite bathroom with excellent water pressure. Toiletries from Crabtree and Evelyn were replenished every day along with towels and linen, if required. Room service was good with tasty food in decent portions. It meant we could eat dinner at the dining table once the children had gone to sleep. The suite also had a free internet connection available.

The swimming pool and small children's play area were a welcome distraction for our 3 year old. However, on one occasion, we were told politely to leave the bar area on the ground floor at 6pm (despite the fact there were no other clients there) as it wasn't considered appropriate for the children to be near the bar...

The Residences are next to a large supermarket which is perfect for stocking up on alcohol etc. It is also very easy to get around Colombo as they are in a central location. The Hilton charges 5000+LKR for a one way airport transfer which seemed excessive. We recommend booking transport through Kangaroo Cabs which was half the price.

All in all - the Residences are a good option for families as they provide self-catering facilities with hotel service. The breakfasts are excellent with a wonderful array of Western and Sri Lankan food. The check-in process needs to be smoother and the rooms in general need to be updated.

We stayed in this Residence from 19/11/10 to 25/11/10, and it was the best 7 nights out of the 12 that we were in Sri Lanka.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Business Suite (which includes a servant's quarter - which essentially means you're really getting a 3 bedroom suite for those of us who can't afford servants!) on the 29th Floor (Room 2906). View was fantastic, service excellent, apartment excellent, bed excellent, breakfast also excellent. Overall Rating = EXCELLENT!

The apartment is basically that - with a lounge area, dining area, kitchen room, laundry area (with a new washing machine/dryer), 2 bathrooms/toilets and plenty of wardrobe space. It is essentially a home away from home.

Our apartment was cleaned everyday with sheets and towels changed everyday (unless otherwise requested). They provided all the extra amenities like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, shower cap, toothbrush/toothpaste, shaving kit, sewing kit as well as 3-4 bottles of water everyday.

The kitchen has all the amenities as well - stove/oven, pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc.

Included in the price of our suite was a buffet breakfast everyday with a good selection of Sri Lankan and Western food.

All the staff at the residence, including the restaurant staff, were attentive and accomodating, which made our stay sooooo comfortable to the point that we were all sad to leave.

Will definitely stay here again next we are in Colombo and will also definitely recommend this place to all our family and friends.
