I arrived late (afer midnight) so wasn't at my best. Safe in the room wouldn't lock, no hair drier, no tea/coffee making facilities, air conditioning very poor, stickers on windows saying don't open, hot water luke warm, no information in room about the hotel - didn't know time of breakfast etc. Went to sleep thinking that I would leave the next day!
Woke up feeling more positive - the bed was comfortable, I'd managed to remember how to use a TV and separate digibox (2 remotes) and looked out of the window.........
what a view! the hotel is opposite a safe bathing beach (watch out for the trains on the railway track you have to cross) and is a stone's throw from the best fish restaurant in Colombo, some say the world, the Beach Wadiya. The staff found me a hair drier and showed me where the hot water switch was hiding. The restaurant is open all day, there is a beauty salon where they do the most amazing full body massage for 4000 rupees and a small swimming pool - good to cool down in. The reason for not leaving window open became obvious - monsoon winds would take it off hinges. I tied back the balcony door so it couldn't do any damage.
I was there just 3 nights but peeked into one of the appartments and would definately be interested in staying longer in one of those. I've stayed in the Galadari but to be honest enjoyed this hotel more.
