“Excellent Location, Convenient”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Hotel is located very centrally, close to shops, restaurants and a short walk to attractions such as the Lake, Temple of the Sacred Tooth and Arthur's Seat lookout. The rooms are small but clean and functional, Excellent breakfast and hotel restaurant has a good selection of Sri Lankan and western dishes. Service a little slow, but what's the hurry? Laundry service was also excellent. Tut-tut service at the hotel entrance. Overall very good, 3 star establishment. I'll be staying at this hotel again when I visit next year.

I stayed here just for 2 nights. The hotel is close to the KCC and close to the lake. The hotel is nice, the room was clean and had all you need. The price is ok, 60US$ per night.
There is only one little issue: The noise of the shops around. Most of the shops have BIG loudspeakers and they play music the whole day, LOUD music. It the hotel room you can hear it so it's not so nice in the evening.

I happened to stay at hotel casamara which I found to be the cheapest option during the holiday week in December. At $100 per night for a triple bedroom, you would expect a decent room with amenities like WiFi , cable tv, iron box etc. But all you get is a very basic room with none of the above.

The best part of the hotel is it's amazing location. It's practically close to everything. Good restaurants nearby and the tooth relic temple at a 5min walk.

Overall, a good place to stay if you want to move around places within the city. I really wish that they had free WiFi as a bare minimum feature when you pay that kind of price.

Pleasant modern hotel close to the shops, temples, lake and bus and rail terminals. Room was large clean and comfortable with ensuite, aircon and fan. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Had excellent meal in the restaurant - if I had one criticism it would be that when this is an island bursting with wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables a synthetic orange juice is served. Pool area looked good although we didn't use it due to lack of time.

Visited for the weekend with a few friends, lovely spacious rooms and great pool area - you can hardly believe your in the middle of a buzzing city centre. Check out the bar on the rooftop, spectacular views and lovely atmosphere for a unwinding drink after a busy day

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are the best! greats views of the city and surrounding mountains.

This is located in the heart of the CBD, you couldn't be more central. However this comes at a cost, beggers& peddlers at your doorstep day & night(although there is a security guard).
The pool was magnificent.

However the watchable TV channels totalled 2 at best. The breakfasts were passable at best. The rooms were clean but quite drab, the bathroom even more so.

For the price we paid over the internet(about $100 USD), we were disappointed with the quality. We stayed at hotels all around Sri Lanka far cheaper, that were cleaner, crisper, more modern.
