We stayed at this hotel thrice this year, and will be staying there again in December (in two weeks time).
We travel in a group, mainly for business and we normally take about 4 to 5 rooms and stay for about 3 to 5 days. As I am responsible for making all the Ground arrangements, which includes hotel bookings, it brings great pleasure when the group members say, “Thanks for choosing this Hotel”. The room service is simply excellent, they have a turnaround room service every evening where they clean and tidy up your room (I’m messy person), arranging all things in the room in a neatly order and they leave behind some nice chocolates as well!. They take great pride in keeping not only the rooms clean, but the entire hotel. In short, the rooms are so comfortable; YOU WOULD NOT WANT TO LEAVE IT.
Food is great, I simply love the breakfast, and choices are aplenty with a great variety of local dishes. I have tried all the restaurants, and they all live up to their name, simply too good, lip smacking !
Excellent place for business and leisure travel, I meet up with my associates in the lobby as the ambience of the lobby is great and very welcoming, with very comfy sofa’s and attentive waiters to serve your every needs. This is one of the best hotel lounges I have stayed in COLOMBO, the noise level is very very low, hence giving you the peace all through the morning and noon. In the evening they have a pianist playing lovely music and in the late evening they a have a 3 piece band which is very entertaining. You really need not have to leave your hotel, as everything you would need is there. Unless you want to do extensive shopping, the city centre is not too far away as well, just walk out of the hotel and flag down an auto rickshaw, however, you can even shop at the Hotels lower ground level, they have a nice café and plenty of shops to look around and shop. (I was lazy, so I took my daughter there and she was happy as she found something she really likes (I was happy too as it did not cost me an arm and a leg! very reasonable).
If you are going to Colombo, don’t think twice, just book this hotel, you will sure love the experience.
I will write more after my next visit in December.
