Jun L. Groups Singapore, August 4, 2013
Horrible experience for the price

Near to Fort Railway Station.
This hotel is situated in the Slave Island's district of Colombo. We had arrived late at night due to our flight and immediately noticed that the area around was pretty shady. There was a begger that kept calling out for us the moment we got off our taxi, and was following us from behind. Thankfully we found the unmarked door which led to the lobby of this hotel. The guy at the front desk seemed like he didn't want to be working there and was engaged on the phone line the whole time we were checking in. We then proceeded up the staircase and immediately a damp musty stench hit us. When we reached our floor, a group of about 5 guys who looked pretty suspicious, was unlocking and entering a nearby room. Inside our room which was on the highest floor, the same musty smell was present. There was absolutely nothing inside the room except and on the whole gave a very uncomfortable feel. There wasn't even drinking water and the tabletops were left un-cleaned. I have stayed in many guesthouses all over India and I must say this is by far the worst one i've stayed in. The windows to the room was not grilled and made for an uneasy night since closing them was not an option in this musty unventilated room.

An antik hotel with a friendly staff

Old fashioned ambient in antic style
A friendly and a special bar beside the hotel, a member of the staff acted when tok-tok driver tried to cheat our son. Very simpatico. Cheap price for the rooms.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Colombo is an exiting city in a fast development, the ducth hospital is very fascination.

good location

closed to shops
small room and not so noisy. good location for those who like to visit shops. near to basic amenities like bank and restaurant. being an elderly couple, we found an easy access to train station. easy to find muslim restaurant too. the rate is affordable with their service. however, nightlife in htl area quite disturbing

Great location

In the city center close to the railway station and Fort.
We choose this hotel because of it's location near the railway station and the city center. It was ok for the price.
Nightlife Tip: We spent New Years Eve at the Hilton Hotel. In the Curry Leaf restaurant eating their fantastic buffet, enjoying Sri Lankan dancers. Very nice-

Too expensive for what it is

Good location
Despite being in a good location (easy 15 minute walk to Fort and not much further to Fort Railway Station) the rooms are not is very good condition and the once beautiful big colonial building that houses the hotel has been left to rot. The door in our room didn't close properly and no hot water. No TV, AC or wifi. There just is nothing about this hotel that warrants the fairly high price tag. The staff were very friendly though and had a lot of useful advice about the city. They just need to do up the place and add a few services or lower the price tag.

Worst hotel in Sri Lanka

Worst hotel in Sri Lanka I stayed but quite central. So if you can find anything else or afford nicer place, go there. From outside looks nice, inside not, quite dodgy. So go there with right expectations. Also, walk in rate might be much cheaper than online.

Mid-range hotel

clean, good location
Hotels in Colombo are more expensive than in the rest of the country. Hotel Nippon offers rooms for reasonable prices. The biggest downside was no Wi-fi even though they advertise to have it.
Hotel Feature Tip: If you are keen to have an internet access, choose another hotel.

Rundown and difficult to find

Not much
We had an overnight stay, arriving late evening and departing the next morning. Our taxi couldn't find it, as the large signage says 'Asia Hotel', and only a small sign on the door says 'Hotel Nippon'. The room was quite rundown with mould on the carpets. I wouldn't stay again, and would not recommend it to others.
