Got Agoda to book me a room in this brand new hotel. It's so new that even some of the seasoned locals do not know it existed. Opened recently (March 2013) by the Premier of Sri Lanka, this hotel is a decent hotel. Located in Colombo 3 (some says 4) this hotel is parked in Edward Lane and the entrance of the hotel is on a small one way lane. However, it is in close proximity with the main road which is Galle Road. (50 meters away).
The rooms are brand new, thus, the bed sheets are pure white. Room is really clean with carpet floor and wonderful firm beds (not sagging in the middle). Toilet is really well proportioned with all the basic amenities including some lovely Sri Lankan natural ingredient hand soaps.
If you want a comfortable stay with good value for money in Colombo, this is the hotel. Nothing fancy with just one swimming pool and one restaurant and a specious lobby , it is somewhat 4 star rated.
The bad side of this hotel is that since it is so new, the staff are not that well prepared to receive guests. They take a longer than usual time to register the guest and a very longer time to handle check out. They always ask funny questions and I wonder if this is typical of Colombo.
Questions like, Sir, did you leave an extra can of drink in the fridge, did you consume the large bottle of mineral water. I was sitting in the lobby one morning and the lady receptionist at the check in desk asked the bell boy to ask all those who are sitting at the lobby lounge, which room they are in. My inference was that the lady was arrogant and was displaying some of her authority. In fact, the bell boy too had a very sour face and it looks like they were from the military. They probably have hot heard the phrase... "smile and the world will smile with you".
The consolation was the comfy room with a well designed air conditioning unit and some really fancy electronic gadgets. They even have a DVD player in the room and I guess they will loan you some DVDs to watch if you have time to kill.
As for the breakfast, well, its just so so and the local food was a little tasteless. However, they have an egg station and will make you omelettes, fried eggs and they will cook some sausages if your request them. (chicken sausages)
There is a number of breads and a toaster and some baked beans. The coffee was not that nice.It tasted funny.
Overall, this is a good hotel to stay, with appropriate price for such Colombo hotel and you will enjoy it once you passed the reception.
Cheers

Room Tip: Room #6004. It has a balcony and one can view the sea from this balcony.

I stayed at the said hotel earlier this month. Its a proper 'value for money' hotel. The rooms are nice , there is very good range of TV channels , Breakfast is OK , location is fairly central and the Wifi is not great but works all the time. For a business stay the hotel is a good option. My experience with the reservation and reception staff was good , they are a courteous lot and I would recommend the hotel considering that its not very pricey.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 2nd floor and it was a decent option.

Hotel is clean but Service is ok and nothing fantastic. Would highly recommend this hotel for the location though, lots of cheap eateries within walking distance, a big shopping mall with cineplex is about 7mins walk away. You can also walk 5mins to barefoot store just across the street. There is the mgm casino opp the road as well but casino is small and smoky so didnt stay long.
