Not worth the cost of the room

Easy access to the new highway, so quick to the airport

The hotel claims to be a historic luxury hotel, which it may have been 100 years ago, but now it is old and in need of much renovation. There was no hot water and the quality of food was quite poor. I would expect to pay half the cost for the quality provided. Consider staying somewhere else.

kooky old colonial experience

not answered
7
if you are interested in the colonial, this is a great place to stay. Huge, labarinthine, opposite the old port so you can imagine your great aunt wandering across as you sit in the 4th floor restaurant. Its had some really bad makeovers during past decades, especially it seems, in the decade that taste forgot (the 70s) and the fort area is weird; is it a military zone, a tourist precinct or a commerical zone? So if you want interest factor, stay here, if you want glitz, marble foyers and swimming pools, stay south of galle face green

Not happy at all. Not worth the money.

Staff are friendly
4.3
Very bad. The hotel is old and dirty rooms. Toilets are dirty. I requested for slippers as the floor is dirty but the staff was not willing to give until i requested to talk to the GM. The request for room change is ignored. Basically i will not recommend or go back to this hotel. Price is also not value for money. Expensive for a dirty room.

Close to train station

Close to train station, old charm, nice view of harbor
7.7
We chose the hotel for the first two nights in Sri Lanka because it is close to the train station and the Petta area. It has a charming interior, piped in classical music and the restaurant has a great view of the harbor. The rooms are clean and simple (standard room)and the breakfast buffet is very good. We are not luxury travelers and this hotel worked well for us. Walk to Pettha and train station is about 10 minutes. Also the World trade center is in a 10 min walking distance. A tuk tuk to the train station should be 200 rupees. Otherwise the area is a little deserted. Something we had trouble with in Sri Lanka in general is that one does not get maps, neither in hotels for the city or for sights. So the best thing is to print out maps form the internet before arriving.

Choose to see fading colonial character

Breakfast and proximity to markets and bus/train station
7.3
I chose the Grand Oriental to get a taste of the old colonial style but perhaps that has faded just a tad too much. Not really up to scratch for the cost of the room. It was fun to stay here and the breakfast is good, the location is also convenient for exploring the markets or catching a bus/train. It's not a bad option but the rooms are basic with old fittings and I'm sure there are better value options in town.
