Gayan and Sampath are doing a great job.
Friendly staff.
As was the case in 2012, it is the frontline staff(Gayan and Sampath) that keep this place going;they not only clean, prepare breakfast,carry suitcases but also act as effective guest relations officers. Gayan in particular has DIY skils and was also able to sort out a blocked drain in bathroom very swiftly and calmly. Brwakfast remains basic(omlette and toast everyday);perhaps, the management could be a bit more innovative in this department. Linen remain clean and fresh. Bedroom walls could do with some touch up of paint.Need to tell staff to switch on the water heater particularly if you want to have a shower at an odd time.Suggest a strict no smoking policy in dinninng/common areas as cigarette smoke cam get into nearby rooms easily.

Modern, clean place with friendly staff
Our room was o.k. as it was to to back of the building, but the ones facing the street might be noisy. Overall, a good city hotel, but not a place to relax.
The location is a good base for exploring Colombo, it is relatively new and apparently they have plans to expand further. The staff is very nice and helpful. The room was very clean, but despite everything is still quite new, the sink in the bathroom was leaking and not all functions of the fancy shower actually worked.

Great room with excellent shower
The shower was amazing, room really modern and clean, staff friendly and attentive
Was a little difficult to find, and because of one way system a long drive from city centre, but couldn't fault the service or the cleanliness of the room. They even got up to give us breakfast at 430am so we could leave at 5am. Worth staying for the amazing shower, room was very modern and bed great
