Hotel with history
Famous brand
The hotel was once the best in Colombo 100years ago. I will never stay in this hotel if I have a chance to visit Colombo again as the room was really too old. Only hot water was available in my room. I was free upgraded to a delux room but still was not attracted - sorry

Nice hotel, but dark rooms
Historical place, good location, but not very cozy
It a confusion at the very beginning as the hotel didn't get our Agoda reservation confirmation. But everything was resolved, personnel is pretty helpful, location is good, but not the best one in the city. I think that the hotel can be more cozy and some renovation is advisable. Aircon was very noisy, so we were not able to use it at night.

Old hotel, renovation recommended
Good location
we stayed in goh for one night and for this it was ok. the rooms are huge, but amenities are sparse. we had a standard room, which had a nice old charm to it, but mainly because it was old and in need of renovation. bathrooms are very small. internet is not for free. the check-out procedure was pretty annoying as you have to go to two counters to get your bill and then the cashier to pay. as there is only one cashier we always had to wait.

very nice hotel
location, food, and friendly staff
we had a pleasant stay, the staff are very friendly and warm, the room with antique fixtures are very spacious and clean. We enjoyed the buffet lunch at Lanka restaurant and the very fabulous italian buffet dinner at the harbour restaurant with a very beautiful view of the colombo port. shopping is nearby and sites, too.

Good location and clean comfortable rooms
Location in city center. Nice clean rooms
The hotel overall is good in cleaniness. Room service is a bit slow. Food is not the best but that is common in most resuarats and hotels. Room service staff were very friendly. Some of reception staff were a bit indifferent, others had trouble with English. The price is a bit higher than what it actually deserves.
