Hotel rooms were a bit law condition

Service was excellent, friendly staff
my stay was brief but not matching my expectations, when comparing rooms with other hotel. It's my hobby to checkin in a different hotel each time, I visit Colombo for business. From the look of the hotel and standard mention in sites,it does not match the exact feeling once inside the room.
