Location , Location Loacation
If you want to be near the Railway station , ie 7 mins walk , and in the heart of Colombo The Hilton is as good a place to stay as anywhere . More 5 star hotels are under construction , such as the Hyatt but most of them are at least a mile and a half from the old town /shopping area of Colombo and they are near to the sea.

This is a typically international hotel
Warm services quick check in and out,good breakfast,nice garden view
I would strongly recommend this hotel with worldwide standard services. It locates at a safe area. The receptionists are pretty efficient

We made full use of the dining options available
Choice of dining, swimming pool, location close to cultural area.
A professional and friendly welcome at check in. Rooms well laid out and comfortable, with the usual amenities. Good A/c. Fine views from both rooms that we occupied. Wi Fi available for free in public rooms, though you have to pay a fee for access from the room (usual big hotel chain policy). The choice of dining was v.good and standards high. Swimming pool area was never busy and service there for food and drink was good. Although the public areas were always quite busy, there were always staff to serve you straight away in all areas. A pleasant, glitch-free stay, recommended.

Standards have fallen
Next to world trade centre and Dutch hospital
if you pre book breakfast the day before, you get lower rate. I tried to do this and spoke to restaurant staff the first day. They too me there was no need to pre book. I ended up paying full price. I therefore went to reception next day and tried to pre book breakfast.

Service Excellence
Excellent location Outstanding Service
I can’t emphasize enough the service excellence I've experienced at every level at this hotel. It truly has continued to exceed my expectations. It starts at the door as you enter the hotel to check-in right through untill your departure….As a frequent traveller having travelled to most parts of the world and who has stayed at some of the best hotels, I must say that the Colombo Hilton wins hands down and provides their guests with a true customer experience.
