Yuki K. Couples Japan, July 19, 2015
decent hotel for a short stay

value for money, walking distance to train stations, decent rooms
There were not many places to eat around the hotel. The hotel restaurant has a dress code of not accepting customers in shorts so be aware of this! Pleasant hotel but a little run down. There was a guy who started speaking to us who claimed to be working for the hotel, he kept talking and bothering us while we tried to find somewhere to eat, and in the end we had to pay tip so that he would leave us alone. I know this is common in Colombo and it is not the hotel's fault but it wasn't a very nice experience.

Too old to enjoy

Just antique style outlook only. Nothing around hotel to spend time. Overall facility is too old to make clean.
Could not sleep due to mosquitto and noise from air conditioner. I will not stay at this hotel again.

Friendly colonial style hotel.

The friendly & helpful staff, the old colonial style and the location.
As returning guests at this hotel it's always nice to be back. The staff is extremely friendly & helpful and the rooms are oldfashioned and comfortable. The location is also great, overlooking the Colombo harbour.
