Bedroom and bathroom is as spacious as suite 4. Good price, but didn't inform me it was under renovation. Half of building is under construction

Very dissapointing

Very dissapointing, currently being refurbished, we should have been told. All the gardens were closed, only one small patio and restaurant were open, but the price was the same.
Richard P. Solo travelers United Kingdom, April 6, 2014
Historic hotel but currently under renovation

Architecture, design, location
9
The only disappointment was the renovations, but it's not just the Galle Face, half the city seems to be under reconstruction at the moment. The work effectively put two thirds of this historic hotel off limits and the reduced numbers of rooms available also meant I couldn't get a full sea view. But the noise hardly carried to the part of the hotel that remained open and the architecture, calm atmosphere, tastefully furnished room, sea-facing swimming pool and excellent breakfast were a joy. It was easy enough to get to other places in the city by simply walking out and flagging down one of the many three-wheelers that circulate constantly.
