About Grand Oriental Hotel

Description

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.

Old - needs update
Really large rooms. Aircon works but Windows old so lots of noise from street and light filters into room. Old bathrooms with smells from piping. Location is near some great restaurants and shops. Long walks to the room and old elevators. Hotel did box breakfast when we left early for airport. Nothing to write home about.

Grand Old Lady
Well worth staying in this relic from the old colonial times. All other hotels in the area are soulless glass and chromium without caracter. The breakfast room with the fantastic view over the harbour! And the breakfast itself was outstanding. Very accomodating staff. The location is perfect.

No hot water for shower
Lobby, 100 year reputation
Stayed two nights. The first night was in 352, no hot water for shower. Called reception they sent a technician. He said 15-20 mins later there would be hot water. However, later the water is only warmer a little but doesn't support a shower. Tried to do it in the morning, water is even colder. Switched to another room in other wing then settled th hot water issue.

historical, close to beach OK place for short stay
Historical feature of the building, close to beach and harbor area. Close to the best restaurants in town!
It is a good hotel for a short stay. It is no luxury but oK for the price paid.
