Florian K. Couples Germany, November 23, 2011
Old hotel, renovation recommended

Good location
6
we stayed in goh for one night and for this it was ok. the rooms are huge, but amenities are sparse. we had a standard room, which had a nice old charm to it, but mainly because it was old and in need of renovation. bathrooms are very small. internet is not for free. the check-out procedure was pretty annoying as you have to go to two counters to get your bill and then the cashier to pay. as there is only one cashier we always had to wait.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Galle Face Hotel. Nice Hotel to have a lunch or just drinks on the lawn right next to the Ocean.

very nice hotel

location, food, and friendly staff
10
we had a pleasant stay, the staff are very friendly and warm, the room with antique fixtures are very spacious and clean. We enjoyed the buffet lunch at Lanka restaurant and the very fabulous italian buffet dinner at the harbour restaurant with a very beautiful view of the colombo port. shopping is nearby and sites, too.
Shopping Tip: tuktuk drivers usually offers their service at 10US dollars per hour, they would usually ask to take you to jewelry stores and offer you 2 US dollars for the trip if you agree to visit this stores, where the items are overpriced and they get 40% commission, we were brought to a jewelry shop at midnight, the salesmen are in their pajamas already, a 6 carat aquamarine was selling at 500US dollars, i was able to buy a 4plus carats in the mall at 85US... see the big difference?

Good location and clean comfortable rooms

Location in city center. Nice clean rooms
7.7
The hotel overall is good in cleaniness. Room service is a bit slow. Food is not the best but that is common in most resuarats and hotels. Room service staff were very friendly. Some of reception staff were a bit indifferent, others had trouble with English. The price is a bit higher than what it actually deserves.
Hotel Feature Tip: Don't bother visiting the nightclub below the hotel unless you are interested in being bombarded with not so good looking girls employed by the club to chat you up and drink like there is no tomorrow on your tab. Be strict and refuse their chat up lines unless you want to see a very hefty bar invoice.
Lim T. Business travelers Singapore, August 3, 2011
Hotel in the business district

spacious & colonial setting
7.7
I was on a business trip. This hotel does not have any shoppin area in the walking distant as it is suituated in the commercial district. Nice breakfast at the restaurant and very friendly staff.
Shopping Tip: Need to take taxi to the nearby shopping area. Nothing much to eat but the hotel serve good and nice food.
Terence R. Solo travelers United Kingdom, July 22, 2011
Faded Charm

It isn't modern
7.7
stayed for four nights on arriving in sri lanka. i had to organise a long visa, which was easy to do from this hotel. i organised a three week tour of sri lanka at the tour office in the lobby, and all went smoothly. great room, i forgive it being a bit faded, but everything worked.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Arrange your Colmobo tour with the tour office in the lobby. Don't use the tuk tuks, it's just as ceap to get a hotel car.

Legacy at its best!

Heritage Structure and Location

had a very superb time with my family in a single triple sharing room which was upgraded to 4 for my family. the rooms are quite spacious and staying there was indeed fun. the caricatures and art forms which are hung on the wall in the entire building is indeed a watch as they show us the rich history of sri lanka.
Nightlife Tip: A superb Discotheque below the hotel. A must visit place.
