      The hotel is 20 years and is extremely tired…the restaurant lacks any taste or innovation in dishes. We asked the hotel to pick us up which they agreed to but didnt inform us in advance that there would be a charge for this service and when we were checking out the charges for the rented car were billed to us.

      This hotel was close to perfect. Staff treated me as family. They could not do enough for you. Clean, pool area and surrounding container garden was refreshing and beautiful.

      we were given a spacious room with two double beds for the 3 of us. The room is clean so is the toilet. On the whole, the hotel due to its central location is good for family and business. The staff are quite helpful and we enjoy our stay there. Thanks for getting us the hotel.

      the portering staff and doormen were excellent

      location - too far away from the centre of Colombo making travel quite dangerous

    • Group of friends

      The hotel is in good location with plenty of food outlets and shops.Alot of tuk tuk pass the road making it easy to travel within the city.

      On checking in was given a standard room instead of a luxury room I booked. I was told that the room rate quoted by Booked.net is good for the standard room only and that I need to pay more for a luxury room.On checking out was told to pay for my room again plus someone else's food bill. Thank God I kept my payment receipt.Before leaving Colombo I found a much much better hotel at the same rate.

      Great location, very friendly and hospitable staff, within a block of 3 supermarkets and lots of ATMs, on major bus route that goes downtown.

      The frequent Sri Lnakan weddings, and the size of my room.

      The very strong smell of pipe smoke which did not abate over two days.

      This was a great hotel. Lovely ammenities, extremely clean and I would highly recommend it to any class of travellers. We were pleasantly surprised on how good the standard of accomodation was. a real bargain. plus dont miss the sizzling seafood platter in the chinese restaurant upstairs! That wouls have cost a fortune at London prices! Excellent!

      friendly staff

      I was charged 50usd when my online booking stated 40 usd total amount to pay, this is due to taxes that were not mentioned in my reservation online with Booked.net.

      It is comfort hotel in good location with super staff.

    • Couple
      3.8

      The location was not great, the rooms were old and in need of renovation, it was not value for money considering the condition and we paid in US dollars and not the local currency. The windows did not block out the traffic noise. The front desk staff were not as helpful as they could have been.
