Hotel Description
Centrally located in the bustling metropolis, this property captures an expedient location,...see more Centrally located in the bustling metropolis, this property captures an expedient location, offering easy access to the World Trade Center, Government Offices, banks, airline offices, and top tourist destinations. Take an easy stroll away and you’ll find York Street, the thriving business district, and Fort and Pettah Bazaar. Although a short drive away, your trip will not be complete without stopping at the Viharamaha Devi Park and the Cinnamon Gardens. Apart from being well located, this 1936 building is a landmark since it emanates historical atmosphere and reflects Srilanka’s architectural style from the 1930s. Grand Oriental Hotel is a great choice for both business and leisure tourists looking for a reasonably priced option located in the heart of the city.

Faded glory

Staff was highly responsive, terrific breakfast with stunning view, you can feel the pride of its history
I hope I look this good at 180! Yes it's worn- but it's well worn and the staff is sincere and seem to have a genuine pride. Maybe it's just their natural Sri Lankan pleasantness? If your budget allows, definitely splurge on a deluxe room. They are exponentially better.

Beautiful historic landmark

History, service, location
We had an absolutely lovely stay here. We were in the Anton Chekhov suite. There's so much history and beauty in the hotel furniture, building, and neighborhood. It's a gorgeous place. The breakfast was delicious with a view of the harbor.

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.
