Re: Our 2nd Time stay
Convenient location to stay the night before heading out to the airport. It is right beside the river and you enjoy the buzz of the morning sounds. Interior is a little dated but it is acceptable. (We love the hot sauce squid and ordered that for room service during dinner :) )

A restaurant rather than a hotel
Essentially more of a restaurant than hotel. Fourth floor room without a lift is a drag. Amenities are basic.

A Good Value Hotel in a Central Area
This is a good-value tourist hotel, complete with a well-priced restaurant/bar. The hotel is well managed, and the housekeeping staff are concientious and thorough. The rooms are very comfortable and well-appointed. Two of them look directly out onto the lagoon while the other (3 or 4?) look to the side, but are still within sight of the lagoon. Location is next to a bustling fishing area within about 10 minutes walk from both the railway station and central bus station. Or about 80-100Rp in a 3-wheeler. Everyone in the hotel is pleasant, and keen to help and advise. A good stopover.

Since we arrived in Colombo late night we decided to put up a night in choy's waterfront as the bay area where the hotel is located was really smelly because of the fishing activities' and there was no lift to walk up to the 4th floor where all the rooms located.. But surprisingly we were so pleased with the super clean room with a friendly staff which apparently made us to extend our stay.the hotel is located very close to the town centre public transport is abundant .

The rooms are at 4th floor: NO lift. Rooms are ok but alot of mosquitoes and management says:' thy cannot see any mosquitoes. very noisy rooms, early morning at 6am you can get disturbed by traffic noise. food service: very poor; it takes 35 mins for food and i f you ask them to make it take away they say we do not have spoon. DO not consider this hotel. I had a booking in same week in same hotel, i cancelled it,
