“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Yes, opt for rooms at higher floors.

Last month I was in Colombo for the second time this year. Had to delay my trip by a week due to the ongoing CHOGM - the hotel management was kind to adjust my revised travelling dates. Mr. Lakshman the GM is a great guy and he handled all my requests personally. Wifi connection was great - breakfast was lovely - and the overall service was excellent. Though i was charged approx 30 US$ for one way airport pick up by the hotel the receptionist arranged my drop in a Tata nano taxi for US$ 16/-. Overall my second stay was at par with the service standards I experienced during my first visit and I would like to thank Mr. Lakshman and his team for doing a great job.

Room Tip: Try to use to newly built highway for airport transfers as it halves the time involved.

Great hotel. We had to call the doctor while at this hotel and the staff could not help enough. The manager came to the room while I was on the phone to the doctors office and the receptionist was being obstructive, the manage took the phone and aranged for the doctor to come. The resturant staff were great and the head chef offered to make my wife anything to speed her recovery. Must visit again

Room Tip: We were on the 9 floor and the views were great. The staff could not do enough and were always smill...

This is a very smart hotel which we used for a 1 night stay when we arrived in Colombo after a long haul flight. We were picked up by a driver arranged by the hotel which was very efficient. The room was fairly small but very smart and clean. Breakfast buffet was of good quality. Overall a good hotel

Good place to stay for business and leisure, especially if you are having a strict budget. The rooms are quite good as per the latest norms with the latest decor and interiors. It is a good budget hotel when you are for business. The breakfast is great and the staff is very helpful and courteous. Please try to opt for rooms at higher floors so you can have a good view of the city. The rooms have balcony too and and a spacious reception/looby area so you have any local guest, you can sit and chat at the lobby. However, the rooms are not well lit up, which is one thing I didnt like, but then it was ok, since the hotel is very comfortable with most of the amenities ( iron with iron table, toiletries, TV with most of the international channels/indian channels). I can come back again to this hotel. The hotel is on the Galle road and there is a mall nearby. Wifi is free as well.

Room Tip: Try to stay at the higher floors.

Good location. Next to a major shopping mall Majestic City in Colombo 4 area. There is a Chinese restaurant - Great Wall right next to the hotel. Easily accessible and central to many shopping and eating places.
The hotel rooms are average and clean. Poor internet connectivity. Restaurant on first floor decent. Food quality as expected of a budget class hotel. Hotel reception area is shabby and when we checked in at early morning can give the creeps to a visitor. However, staff members are nice and speak understandable English. Currency exchange rates are poor so go outside if you want to change your US$ or other currency.
