I spent 1 week in Colombo and stayed at this fantastic hotel. Pearl Grand was recommended by a colleague so I never doubted the credentials of this place. Rooms are spacious (those complaining about room size have obviously never stayed in an Ibis) and the bed is comfortable. Shower area and WC were clean though the shower could be a bit better. Toiletries are basic so if you are used to good things in life, then you better carry them along. Breakfast spread is the standard stuff with lots of choices (cereals, sausages, eggs on order, fruits, pastries, juices etc). Interestingly (for Indians) South India food (dosas, medu vada etc) are also on offer. Wi Fi is free and reasonable (4 mbps download). They offered me a cable for my laptop. The room has a decent desk which can be useful while catching up with your emails. I have only one complaint against this hotel. I was on a non smoking floor. However on the last day of my stay there was a very strong odour, quite obviously one or more guests were smoking. The management seemed to be helpless to stem this kind of behaviour. This when there is a clear sign in the room requesting guests not to smoke and warning them of consequences of smoking. I feel that this warning needs to be enforced to ensure that other guests are not inconvenienced. I will definitely go back to this hotel.
