“Not bad”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We recently stayed at this hotel. The location is decent. A small walk from the beach which was a +1. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, although the beds do creak a wee bit at night. The tv channels are very grainy..
The breakfast was poor. Cold and not great.
The swimming pool was great. Small but very cosy.
If you're on a budget its not a bad option.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with family

This was the last night of an Exodus two week tour of Sri Lanka, and we arrived from a beach hotel on the south coast, so there may have been a bit of a culture shock, but we were a bit disappointed with the hotel's location. It is a few km from the centre of Colombo on a busy road. Our room overlooked the pool and was fine. The food was good. Had we stayed longer we may have settled in better, but we were only there for one night.

This hotel is on busy Galle road , a little away from the sea front.The rooms are small but comfortable however services are not very good.I stayed for three days and for this entire period none of the channels were available on TV .the problem was not rectified despite of my written complaints .The reception desk was slow and not helpful in many cases.The hotel has lot of potential if they improve services.

Probably the most amazing small hotel I have ever stayed at. You will never want to leave. The property is spectacular and the service exceeded our expectations. The room and bathroom are great. Everything from the first greeting to goodbye was memorable. We can't wait to go back!

Our family stayed at the Sapphire hotel in Colombo few days ago. It was one of the best experiences we had in a 3 star city hotel. Friendly staff, Clean family room with all facilities, wi-fi, and the best part was the FOOD !!

Real value for the money you pay for your food, specially at breakfast. Amazing view of the city streets from the restaurant at night.

I stayed for couple of days, i'm not satisfied with their service. There are many findings but i wants to highlight few now. The staff's are not friendly and no proper signboard!

1. Room's was not clean.(Upon several followup they did)
2. Floor is broken.(titles are broken but they never care for that)
3. No proper room-service!

I stayed here twice in last month and last year. Both time I had fantastic experience. Helpful staff and rooms are good. Good vegetarian restaurants around the hotel. Free wifi at rooms at good speed. We can do shopping nearby. But only problem is little far in Galle Road. I had to spend half an hour more to come to center of the city.
