            Old hotel : Heritage feel, but low on facilities and amenities”
            One of the oldest and grandest hotels on colombo - but the lack of modern amenities make this hotel a poor choice on the part of travellers; i would rate a 3/5 to this hotel. positives: nice location (harbour view on york street), welcome drinks, grand heritage feel negatives: restaurant food is very pricey, airport drop cab is 1.5x of uber, amenities lacking (such as small washrooms with missing toiletries), long corridors (lot of walking) .. all in one, try to get better deals from other modern hotels in the area, and this hotel is not a highly recommended one - go for this only if value for money makes it reasonable for you.

            Colonial relic”
            May have been opulent 80 years ago but now a faded, jaded relic of a long-passed era. No pool, ancient Tv's, borderline grotty bathroom and not as well situated as it may appear on the map. Four poster bed was grand but little else about this place was. none of the standard toiletries available bar soap, no view from most rooms and just an overall sense of trying to wring every last rupee from the shriveled corpse of a once proud institution. one night absolute max and only because on the right side of Colombo for the airport.

            This place is a legendary hotel and being part of it is a great experience for me... great location in central colombo overlooking the harbour. Buffet food is well served, linens smells good and crisp. I had the honor to visit the room of our national hero Dr Jose Rizal, it was like a time travel experience for me and im glad that the hotel had restored Its past history. Kudos to all and keep it up

            I understand it is a big job to do a whole make up, but can they just paint here and there, fill up some holes , do proper job instead of putting tapes, which is flying by wind? Sad to see it. Most of the staff are very nice.
