Our rating 6
Such reputed hotel does not follow bank rate to exchange currencies. In room toiletries are not kept as promised as published. Extra tax charged with booking confirmation price.

A nice place to stay
I had a nice stay at Mount Lavinia Hotel. Welcoming staff, nice room with a view on the ocean, impressive breakfast, excellent facilities. I would definitely recommend this place. Only drawback: a bit far from the city center.
