Cinnamon Grand Colombo
Ranked #4 of 55 Hotels in Colombo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Have stayed at this hotel many times before and it continues to be the premier hotel in Colombo. Returned this time with my wife and a couple of friends and we weren't disappointed. The hotel's facilities from the large lobby and atrium, swimming pool, poolside bar and many, many restaurants provide plenty of choice for all. The rooms are modern and stylish and the hotel staff are friendly, eager to assist and always smiling. The hotel is well located in the northern part of Colombo and is an easy walk to the Galle Face Green and Galle Face Hotel. We wouldn't stay anywhere else and we'll come back again.

Our tenth stay at this hotel and we were impressed! Since 2008 this hotel has improved incrementally with each visit. However this one was by far the best - the staff are more efficient, friendly and capable and the lumps in service have been ironed out. The choice of restaurants is comprehensive; the breakfast at both Taprobane and in the exec lounge are both excellent and the bars also offer choice in atmosphere, music and formality. It is a very, very good hotel!

A large and busy hotel, but the place has class and they make you feel very welcome. The rooms are large, clean, and well equipped. The large lobby has a piano tinkling in the background and with two very comfortable lounge areas, it is a great place for meeting friends or just relaxing with a drink and possibly watching a wedding party passing through in all its splendor. The breakfast buffet is absolutely mouth-watering, with a large selection of Sri Lankan and Western dishes, many prepared on the spot. (There are also a number of other restaurants too in the hotel, which we did not try.) The amenities provided are good, and the garden and swimming pool area are pleasing to the eye. (However, I must say that there was far too much chlorine in the pool when we were there. You simply could not open your eyes underwater.)
We found all the staff to be helpful, polite and efficient.
The hotel is also centrally located, making it so convenient to visit whatever you want to see in Colombo.
We have stayed here a few times before over the years and always found it most satisfactory.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The rooms are old and after the first night we moved to the premier part of the hotel (which look a lot more like the picture of the room we booked but are still dated with old furniture and a hard bed). Showers in old part of hotel are over the bath and not seperate as we saw advertised.
Apart from this the service was extremely average and at times very poor. At the pool you have to ask for a towel and mattress for a lounger at least twice and you are left hanging around with noone making any effort to help if you don't ask. Poolside is also very old and badly designed with loungers crammed into 1 side.
Reception phone just rings out whenever we called. And if we called a different number we just got transferred without being told we were being transferred.
Breakfast was average with bad quality tea and coffee and considering they have a proper coffee machine in the lobby cafe and plenty of quality tea. It is strange that only low quality is served at breakfast, considering the price.
This hotel really needs to up its standards to compete with new 5 star hotels being built.

This is the best value for money stay in Colombo. The hotel is very large, which I am not a fan of, but it does offer many restaurant choices and large grounds and facilities for children to play. The room and bathroom were quite adequate and frankly for the price we paid we were very happy! We were very impressed by the seafood restaurant - great fresh seafood and reasonably priced. The restaurants were very accommodating with kids menus too. Hotel cars are available without pre order, but taking tuk tuks around town is fairly easy! I recommend shopping at The Fashion House and Odel - each 10 minutes drive from the hotel. Great quality and bargain shopping!
