            This is a hotel that i will always love to be back.The staff from security to the management is very friendly and helpful with everything.I dont remember the names of all the staff but everyone is very helpful and friendly.I happen to there when the eastersunday bomb attack happened in Colombo and i noticed that the MD was very concerned about the guests and also his staffs,he was asking the guests if everything is ok and need any help.I saw he was acting very quick to arrange passes for his staffs who had to leave the hotel in the night after their duty when the curfew starts.I will definitely be back.

            Great new hotel near Galle rd”

            Location, Staff, Cleanliness/Comfort

            This is a brand NEW hotel. You can feel it when you take a shower: it is very clean and the towels feel like they have never been used before. The beds are really great, super comfortable and everything is just perfect. The staff is so nice, greeted us with a class of fresh juice upon arrival and always smiling and helped us book a taxi to the airport. This is a hotel I would definitely recommend for business our leisure travelers. The only downside I can see is that our room (#303) was located directly beneath the restaurant and we could hear the chairs dragging on the floor in the morning, which woke us up around 8 or 9 AM. Other than that, no issues! Great stay!

            An absolute nightmare!”

            I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone who wants a decent nights stay in the city. A rip off to the price that they charge. Would have been better off with a room from a popular hotel brand for almost the same price range, than this house turned into a “hotel”. Although we took a deluxe room, they assigned us a standard room, which reeked of FAECES smell and was suffocating. And when we asked the bellboy he shrugged and said it was due to rain. The cushion had several hair strands stuck to it and the zipper was broken. Bad TV reception. The receptionist was sleeping on his desk when we checked-in around 1ish am. When you walk into the hotel you are hit by strong stuffiness smell starting from the reception area. A disaster.

            it's situated at a very good location and easy access to transport. Yet the space in the room is a bit cramped. Just for a stay it's affordable but can low the price on a room if only the room is reserved (without meals)

They make good recommendations for places to eat and visit and will and will arrange taxis or tuk tuks for you. Janni (apologies for spelling) was especially helpful and made travelling on arrangements for us especially easy and comfortable, thanks to all staff. Weirdly didn't sell beer though.

            Lovely Hotel but poor food preparation by Flamingo Restaurant.”

            We enjoyed our stay in the Hotel and their staffs were friendly, helpful and were quick to respond to our needs. However, the major downfall for this place would be their food. They have wide range of food offering during breakfast session but they were not up to the mark. The food is priced at USD10 and wish it could have tasted better. Hope the management can work on this but it was a worth stay overall.

            Good location in a quiet street away from Galle Road. Not many taxi drivers know the street. Breakfast could be improved. Not much choice. Had to ask for fresh pineapple which was later brought in from the kitchen. Steak menu included potato which was missing. Had to point that out and it was brought later. Corridors are not bright and cheerful as I would have liked them to be. Too gloomy for my liking. Not bad for the price though.

            We stayed there for 1 night. Rooms are small and not very clean. Staffs are ok. It was full moon day, so everything was closed around the hotel. We went to hotel restaurant flamingo for our dinner. We ordered beef steak, pasta, roasted beef. Beef was damn hard, dry and smelly. It seems very old and frozen food. We even couldn't eat pasta. There was bad smell. We couldn't eat anything. We really loved food in sri lanka, this was the worst experience in sri lanka. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone. Management seems very careless about their service. I will rate this hotel 3/10.

            Overpriced, not really all that close to anything, basic but clean rooms. My issues were that laundry was returned damp & crinkled & not on hangers as indicated on laundry form & on check out they tried to charge me for a mini bar time I didn't use/drink. Rude & arrogant staff at from counter, unhelpful - so much different from all my other hotel interactions in Sri Lanka which are generally of top standard

            A little distance from the Fort and tourist area but an easy tuk tuk ride there. There are plenty of eating and shopping options within walking distance from the hotel including a nice shopping center. The staff were particularly helpful and friendly and spoke excellent English. They arranged late check out and hotel taxi to the airport in Negombo for our evening flight.
