"The people of Sri Lanka are very nice and welcoming in general, they are honest and friendly. The staffs of Marino beach Colombo are no different. They are very nice, kind and guest-friendly. The female receptionist and others were very kind to give us a room with a better view of the sea upon request. The room and everything else is neat and clean. Nice bathroom fittings with an automated blind curtain. The room has a touch of aesthetics to make anyone’s stay here a memorable experience. On top of that, guests here get unlimited access to the infinity pool, garden, and Jacuzzi. The Food Emporium and Marino Mall with the VR Park can make life easy, especially if you are traveling with kids. The food emporium has excellent Local, Indian, Western food. Price of food is reasonable. Also, the view of the sea is excellent from there. You can smoke at the pool, at the balcony of your hotel room, and at the restaurants of the food emporium. Do taste the tea in the restaurant. It’s excellent!"

"I have made a reservation for my parents at the Ocean Colombo Hotel. Since it was my mothers birthday, I asked them if they can do something nice for her. Usually a hotel will put some chocolates and a card, but they went out all the way - they greeted her in the check in, decorated their room with balloons, put a cake in the room with her name on it - and not less than 4 staff members went up to sing her happy birthday. This was according to them, the best welcome they ever had. The room itself had large beds, a beautiful view and the breakfast was nice. The hotel was clean and located in a central location, so they could get anywhere they wanted quite easily. A hotel that knows how to make their guests feel special is worth everything. Thank you!"

"I have stayed in this hotel over and over again. If I travel to COLOMBO and rooms are available this will always be my choice. Why? Becuase they provide a great level of service, FO Manager is one of the most Friendliest Staff I ever met from Sri Lanka. Several times I have requested for late check-out due to my work and business schedule, they never said no and always assisted if rooms are available. Special mention to Receptionist Bhanu, Bell Boys Angelo, Thalipa, and all other Bell Boys can't remember their names. Also the Quality of the Aminities in the Room and Food is considered as good considering the price. Well Done Keep up the Good Work/"

"I stayed in the Mandarina for about a week whilst I was working in an office in Colombo. The hotel its self is very nice, the families and amenities are nice and the rooms are modern and clean. The rooftop pool is nice and a cool place for taking photos and relaxing. The buffet breakfast they provide is also good, with many different options from western to Sri Lankan foods. The staff are mildly friendly, although did sometimes give me a weird vibe - maybe because I am a young professional? Some of my local friends came to visit a few times and they did not question anything. I had a great stay here and would stay here again. Tip: Don't use the tuktuks outside the hotel, they tried to charge me 700 rupees, use the PickMe App my journey was only 300. "

"On my last night in Sri Lanka, I chose not to be a backpacker. I couldn't say no to this lovely and elegant heritage hotel in Colombo. I wish I could have stayed longer. The staff were great. Check-in/out was seamless and they have a welcome tea drink. Breakfast was lovely. And the dining/pool area is one of the best areas in the hotel. It's a historic hotel with a couple of celebrity guests in the past like Mark Twain, Yuri Gagarin, Mahatma Gandhi, Roger Moore, Carrie Fisher, John D. Rockefeller, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford!"

"We were very bluffed by the amazing view we got from our room and from the rooftop bar. I suspect this view will not last as another skyscraper is in progress of building just next to it. The hotel deco is a little bit too "red" and the staff said they are aiming for "funky" look. It is refreshing to have a very modern hotel in Colombo but I am a bit sceptic that it might go out of style and I would recommend that they constantly improve their deco. Regarding the breakfast, it was very good but nothing social from any other hotels apart from a good coffee machine in the breakfast hall, where hotels only serve filtered coffee. I thought it was great as good coffee is hard to find in Colombo. We were very lucky as the hotel just opened and the rooms were soooo comfortable. Better than many five star hotels in Colombo that are unfortunately a bit dated. The staff was very friendly and asking for feedbacks as they just opened and I found that was a very good touch and showing how much they want to improve. I was a bit disappointed in the rooftop bar, the place is amazing but the service was very bad, we had to wait a long time for our drinks to be served, we ordered some nibbles that took a long time and that we're very cold and not tasty at all. Imagine fried pepper and salt calamari ee completely cold, it was awful! Overall, the hotel is excellent, the rooms are very comfortable, the staff in he hotel was friendly and the coffe from the machine in the breakfast hall was good. The negative points were a deco that is not the taste of everyone, a very bad rooftop bar service, especially when it's so expensive. Great great view of Colombo, the best I have ever seen. "

"We really enjoyed our stay! Having travelled by train from Galle, we got off at Mt. Lavinia and took a tuk tuk to the hotel which was far easier than going into central Colombo. On arrival, the staff were extremely friendly to the point where we ended up chatting to them for almost half an hour. The hotel was the cleanest we stayed in during our stay in Sri Lanka. The proximity to the beach is also a big plus and is worth visiting if you book here. We took the bus between the hotel and central Colombo and is an experience in itself, plus it only costs 20 rupees for the trip. Highly recommend booking here as it seems to be far greater value for money than the hotels closer to the city centre. "
