I had a good experience staying there doing the new year's eve, total of 4 nights. My room was on 12th floor, absolutely no noise, the view of Galle face was a real treat! I admit the hotel is old and needs refurbishing badly, but overall, everything is clean and works. On the 12th floor we have the choice of taking our breakfast at their lounge there, overlooking the ocean, instead of going down to the lobby.
Bed is comfortable, bathroom facility is sufficient. Although the water pressure for the flushing toilet is weak. Wi fi in room is not free, unfortunately. However, if you are like me, purchase a sim card at the airport at the mere cost of Rs1,300, you have 1.5 G of data to travel with you, no need for any wi fi.
The hotel is an easy walk to Old Dutch hospital complex, and a relaxing walk on Galle Face, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there, couldn't complain for room rate under US$150.
