Not at this time!”

Given that all Colombo hotels are on lock down; this hotel is the cheapest and best for its location and amazing staff! Everything else is ‘ghostly’. Even the AC is mostly 25-26 deg blower. Food is limited fare and lots of checks and scans every time you come in. Wait a month if you can before staying overnight in Colombo.

Excellent value for money, very slow staff”

This is a modern "funky" hotel. But ignoring all that, it's clean, good facilities, in a good location at a good price. Great for business. The main drawback are the serving staff who appear to be operating on a different time zone to the rest of the world.... at least half an hour behind it... you just wait for EVERYTHING. An age. The only downside to this otherwise good hotel.

Reasonable Priced, Good Location Hotel”

Just had a 2 night stay at the Cinnamon Red Hotel for our honeymoon. We were surprised when the Hotel gave us a food and drink voucher for our celebration. A really nice gesture from them. The location of the hotel wasn’t bad. It’s close enough to the main attraction in town. Further and a Tuk Tuk is reachable. The Pool has a great view and is a very nice place to be in after exploring for a whole day. And if you worry about the food, the breakfast has a good selection and is very tasty. We have no complains and will recommend it to people if you are coming to Colombo.

A bit basic, and a little run down, but for the price and location, it's absolutely fine. The rooftop pool is best early in the morning as it can get busy with the bar on the other side and non-guests walking in to take photos.

A contemporary city hotel”

This hotel is in a very convenient location, has nice clean rooms, has a couple of good restaurants, pool, rooftop bar, gym and beautiful views. They allow delivery from any fast food place as they don't offer room service. Staff at front office are not too friendly. Also, nearly got billed for bathroom slippers and dental kits which we did not order or buy and were not even aware that these items were available for purchase. Someone was able to order it through our room's TV apparently, when we were out. So housekeeping while being out of the room might not be a good idea.

Room was good, great view. Pool was nice, though no shade. Breakfast was excellent. Shower had very poor pressure (we were on the 23rd floor). Thay have a no straws campaign, but when I wanted to take two pieces of toast to my wife in our room so she could take her medication, they would not let me take the plate, but put it and the butter and jam in plastic containers and put them all in a carrier bag. Other than that, all good.

A good entry point to start the holiday”

We stayed 3 nights which was long enough for Colombo. The food here was good with a good choice for breakfast and dinner. We really enjoyed our curry lunch on the first day. The rooms were comfortable and a reasonable size. One annoying thing was if you were travelling in a group and located on different floors you didn’t have access to the other floors. I think this is used as a training hotel for the Cinnamon group so though everyone was pleasant communication was a bit hit and miss. The hotel is a bit out of the way so you need transport everywhere.

A bit dull”

We had decided that our last two nights in Sri Lanka we would treat ourselves to one of Colombo's best hotels. What we didn't recognise was that this is really a business hotel, by that I mean it is completely anonymous, it could be anywhere. The reception on floor 7 might seem chic to a businessman but we were used to being invited into a hotel with warm greetings, a drink and somewhere to sit, this was functional. Stand at what looked like flight cases and deal with someone who mostly interacted with a computer. I am sure this is perfect for a busy work traveller but it was a bit of a let down to us. The roof bar and swimming pool has fantastic views but apart from that the experience was one of comfort in the room and little else. I far preferred our stays at friendly small hotels where we were treated as valued guests. Not bad in any way just not memorable at all

modern hotel, friendly staff”

The staff are very friendly and helpful, dining options are plenty, but certainly best to book for the main restaurant. Can get take away from the restaurant in the lobby. For some reason one can take a fork and knife to one's room but not a plate or bowl. (Why?) No big deal to eat from a plastic takeaway container, but strange. The pool at the 26th floor is amazing if freezing but gets better the longer one is in and keeps submerged. Brilliant sunset view! All in all a very pleasant stay!
