About Hotel Sapphire


Authentic Sri Lankan hospitality and local ambience characterize this centrally located hotel. Providing a restful base from which to explore Colombo’s plentiful attractions, the hotel’s position on Galle Road is just 45 minutes from the airport and especially convenient to the National Museum, Dehiwali Zoo, and the Cinnamon Gardens. Travelers seeking more than just a generic hotel stay will be drawn to the Hotel Sapphire’s genuine warmth and affordability. Adding to the hotel’s appeal, the property is often the venue for Hindu weddings, offering guests the rare opportunity to experience real Sri Lankan culture.

Good location but the hotel was bit less than average
Provided face towels instead of bath towels. We requested for bigger towels few times but were unable to provide. The next day when we checked out, receptionist came and told that two towels are missing!!! We requested him as well as the duty manager to check on our luggages which they refuse too and apologized later for the same act. It was a horrible moment that they claimed something that was never provided and refused the offer to check on luggages. Awful and very unpleasant experience!

A basic hotel with helpful and pleasant staff
1. The room was clean; 2. The staff was helpful; 3. The swimming pool is available at any time
Though it does not locate in the city center, it is easy to to get there by taking a tuk-tuk. The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant, and they even let us to use the swimming pool after the official hours!

A Gem In the Middle of Colombo
Great Location, Helpful Staff and Big Spacious Rooms
Getting to know Colombo from Hotel Sapphire is a great idea. Located at Wellawate, the hotel was close to amenities, public transport and lots of wonderful restaurants. And did we mention our spacious suite? Value for money!!!
