    Tasteless food I’ve eaten”

    Checked in to the hotel on the 16th of October. Had to ask to change the room as the mattress was not comfortable. They were all the same mattress in all rooms delux or standard. They didn’t look nice as the photos on Agoda. The dinner we ordered lamb buiriyani and the most tasteless biriyani I’ve eaten. Breakfast was very basic and it was catered for Indians. No fresh juices for breakfast. Very dissatisfied hence I wouldn’t recommend.

    This is the hotel for us if Colombo is a must ! ”

    The GM, The Malaysian Beach restaurant, The Pool

    We stayed 2 nights in a deluxe room with sea view and that noisy railway line which we knew about so had our earplugs ! - the railway line was built along the coastline in old colonial days so one finds a way to put up with it. After an initial setback at check-in where it was pointed out that I had erroneously booked as a single occupying a double room and the receptionist wanted to charge an extortionate supplement the GM intervened and from then on we had excellent service all round. We enjoyed our dinners at the Malaysian beach restaurant on both nights with local entertainment on the second night - we were fortunate to get a table. This is a popular hotel for local weddings and it was nice to be a spectator at such a colorful event. We had a late evening flight from Colombo so the staff were very accommodating in allowing us a late check-out . The reception area could do with an upgrade and easier access to the lobby bar which is far too discretely located !

    Clean, warm water, on the beach

    This was a great stay for my first night in Colombo. I was satisfied with the service and the buffet. The location is great - right beside Mt. Lavinia Hotel as well. For the weary traveler, they should note that it takes about 1hr - 1.5hr to get to the hotel from the airport. Once the new expressway is built this will be much faster.

    Yes we were very happy with the staff the hotel and area”

    The cons was we got quoted one price 402 euros on your site. But we got charged 485 euros when we arrived. We wanted to pay in the local currency.when we arrived and was told it was already paid with our credit card. Not happy with that. Because I sent a email to say I'd pay on arrival. Just wish I got my 81 euro back

    Berjaya is a well located hotel right on the beach... They have a Malaysian restaurant with India n menu right on the beach.. the chefs are good and you can enjoy good food with good beer or some local gin/arak... the breakfast is very basic and do not expect something fancy.. the staff is also laid back and slow.. they are not so courteous... On the beachside you can find many good restaurants.. make sure you try O by the Shore and Loon Tao.. also you can try La Langousterie.. Enjoy your stay....

    worst hotel throughout entire sri lanka travel!”

    it was the most expensive hotel that i booked for the entire 2 weeks travel in sri lanka since i would be spending 2 days before my departure. since it was 'berjaya hotel', a well known 5 star franchise of malaysian hotel i was expecting the same from here. i was totally wrong. TOTALLY worn down. the carpetting in the room had some urine smell to it. SMALL room (compared to what you get with lesser price in other parts of lanka). toilet was awful, like from the 1950's setting (sitting, though). only basic cleaning was done. mold on the walls. its just yucky. only pros are the pool and breakfast spread.

    A Great Hotel”

    We checked in at about 1.00 am in the morning. Still the receptionist Tharindu warmly welcomed us. He was very polite and helpful. (The 2nd night too we came very late back to hotel. That day he even carried our luggage to the room as a concierge was getting a bit late to come.) All the staff was very polite and helpful. The rooms are big. Beds too are massive and comfortable. Bathroom is airy with acceptable water pressure. Everything is very clean. Yes. Sometimes the train noise can be little annoying. But we were in the top floor. The Wi-Fi was not great and the hotel looks little old but a new court of paint would fix it. The bottom line is we had a comfortable stay in the hotel and the food too was great. We will definitely be staying again.

    Rundown bathroom similar to cheap apartment ”

    Not too far from airport

    The room is ok, but bathroom is shockingly rundown, it's not even up to a normal hotel standard, left alone being 4 stars. Staff is accommodating to our late check out request though. Rasa Malaysia restaurant offers good food, but the quality of their buffet breakfast is just bad. There are flies all over the breakfast hall also. On another note, there's a train track right at the back of the hotel room, which mean you'll be hearing the train like every few mins. Overall quality of the stay is quite disappointing.

    Location, 2 mins to Beach and friendly Staff

    My stay was pleasent and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Checkin was fast and I was shown to my room. They gave me a twin room, but preferred 1 king size, as there was one available, they changed it within 10 mins. Also on checkout, one of the staff found my wallet and came running to reception and handed it in, all my money and stuff was as I had left it. Very honest. Will be back again in the near future.
