About Hilton Colombo


Situated on a seven-acre plot adjoining the World Trade Center, Hilton Colombo offers star-class service, high security, and excellent views. Positioned within Colombo Fort and close to many of the city’s historical and architectural sites, the Hilton’s luxurious interiors are matched by sprawling views over the Indian Ocean and Beira Lake. Living up to the Hilton name, this hotel is swathed in a plush Art Deco design from the powder blue carpeting in the King Suites to the nouveau finishes in the lobby. While the hotel itself offers six different restaurants, its location close to Colombo’s commercial center makes access to outside shopping and dining a mere formality.

Hotel under renovation
The food was good, excellent room and service staff excellent
The hotel was under renovation and sometime we were disturbed by construction noise. The lobby was crowded and messy. Shops on the fourth floor were terrible and should be given a miss.

Hilton Colombo
The bed, the staff, the location adjacent to the WTC.
Very comfortable and stress free although I had to complain twice about the faulty aircon before it was fixed meaning that I spent 2 nights without aircon. The toilet extractor fan doesn't work although I'm not too sure if there was supposed to be a fan in there. There is a huuuuge TV in the room with a good array of channels and the bed was superbly comfortable. My opinion is that the lobby entrance is somewhat seedy-looking and spartan and needs a revamp. Ditto the pub. All of the staff I encountered were exceedingly gracious and friendly and made me feel special so all-in-all, a very pleasant stay!

The room is clean, restaurants and pick up service
The hotel pick up service was good and the driver was friendly, the room was clean but there's some construction works happening during my stay and because of the noise of the construction happening inside the hotel, the front desk officer had change a room for me.

You need to be 'Hilton addict'
The location is fine
The Holton Colombo is getting old, and rooms give signs of poor maintenance (understand: poor maintenance for this type of hotel) and a price which is not anymore competitive for this type of stay. Staff tries to be friendly but is most of the time exagerating at it, and be warned about one thing: you need some layers of clothes unless you love to spend your time in a freezing fridge (this is probably supposed to help businessmen to get their fear-related sweating under control...). I'll avoid Hiltons from now on.
