After staying in a range of different hotels during the previous 2 weeks it was nice to stay in a hotel with decent air conditioning and decent plumbi...

Centrally located, well suited to my needs”
Fairway Colombo is the most centrally located hotel I've stayed at in Colombo, right next to Dutch Hospital. It's also within walking distance to Galle Face Green and the Colombo Central Markets. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. I shall certainly stay here again in future. The only oddity I experienced during my stay was that I was assigned an accessible room despite not having requested one nor wanting one. In future, I'd recommend that the hotel staff confirm with the guest whether they require an accessible room at check-in regardless of whether the guest has a disability or not, rather than making assumptions about a guest's needs. And if an accessible room is the only type available then that should be communicated to the guest.
We are glad that you had a great stay with us. Apologies for inconvenience caused due to room type. Look forward another chance to serve you better.
An excellent small hotel in a wonderful location!”
We chose to stay at the Fairway during our 3 days in Colombo and thoroughly enjoyed our few days there. The location is unbeatable- just behind the Old Dutch Hospital and within easy walking distance of Galle Face Green and all there is to see in Colombo Fort. The staff are great, Mary at the front desk in particular- so helpful and friendly! The basic rooms are small but comfortable as is the bathroom although a bit more shelving would be welcome. It's great too having Java Lounge in the same building- great coffee, good music and a reasonable selection for breakfast if you don't want to opt for the hotel breakfast. We would definitely return to the Fairway on a future stay in Colombo!
Thank you for your feedback and observations. Hope you will visit us again on your next trip. From: Team Fairway Colombo
Stop over Colombo”
We always stay there, if we have a stop over in Colombo. It's very well situated....close to the railway station and next to all the sightseeing places and the oceanside. Breakfast is very good....you get a huge variety. The rooms are very clean and very comfortable! We really love it for having a stop over in Colombo! From the Fairway Colombo we always get the very best start into this wonderful country. And the stuff is also very friendly and helpful!
Thank you for your lovely comment. See you soon on your next visit. From: Team Fairway Colombo
Second Visit - Wonderful Experience! ”
This is our second stay at the Fairway Colombo. This time we booked a family room (two king beds). It was massive, clean, and even better than the photos. We had a sitting area & kitchenette, too. The stafff was friendly and professional. We love the location which offers historic and leisure attractions. There is easy shopping and dining right there, too.
Thank you so much for coming again. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the stay.
ZMAX Fairway is located at a very convenient Place, just few meters from Colombo Finacial Centre. Surrounded by Cafe's and Restaurants of many choices. The Hotel and its amenities are new as the ZMAX Fairway went to operation as a 4star just six months ago. Hotel Rooms are small but very comfortable. I checked in to 2 different category of rooms. The Zmax King Family room is a perfact solution for a family of 4 or 5 to spend a budget holiday in Colombo. The Family room comes with comfortable 2 King beds and a huge sofa with sink and a microwave oven. The reception and lobby Area for guests are small but theres 4 elevators for quick access to guest rooms. Hotel Staffs are kind and keen with their works. Absolutely "Value for money"
Comfortable, easy stay”
Arrived late from the airport. Had a swift checkin and went to sleep in the comfortable room. Check out in the morning was equally easy. Wifi was super-fast. When I had trouble withdrawing cash from local ATMs the staff was able to point me to the World Trade Center which had one that worked. Will book here again if I return to Colombo.
New good value well located hotel ”
I stayed at the Fairview for my last night in Colombo - many of the other hotels in the area are quite a lot more expensive and this is a good budget-mid range option. The rooms are new and nicely fitted out with extra touches like tasteful artwork. Bed was very comfortable. Location is ideal being across the road from dutch hospital shopping precinct and walking distance to Galle face green (15min) and Pettah (20min). The beach at Galle face green is filthy and now there is major construction there. There aren't many budget eating options in the area though Pillawoos is around the corner and there are lots of people selling rice curry packets during the day. All up if you had to stay downtown this is a great option. If I return to Colombo I would not choose to stay in fort area - the outer beaches are much nicer
If it had a pool it would be 5 star.”
Great place to stay whilecin Colombo. Quality of facilities, amenities and room fixtures would put this hotel in the 5 star category if it had a swimming pool. Situated next to the Old Dutch Hospital shopping and fine dinning precinct it is the heart of colonial Colombo. We stayed 2 nights and moved to Negombo to be close to the airport. Really wish we had stayed here. Staff are great. This is a high standard hotel at a mid standard price.
Well located and clean”
Fairway Colombo is well located , very short walk to Old Dutch Hospital. Staff is helpful and attentive. Breakfast spread is acceptable, go for the Sri Lankan breakfast. The hotel room is clean, no trace of dirty grout on toilet tiles!
Thank you very much for your ratings. Hope you come back soon. From: Team Fairway Colombo
Best in class”

Appreciate your lovely comment. Hope you will visit us again on your next trip. From: Team Fairway Colombo
Loved the location, great value, recommend”
We came back for a second stay on our way back thru Colombo. Had a more basic room this time due to availability, but just as pleased. Great location close to history and culture, train station, restaurants. PROS: Friendly, helpful staff. Very clean, well-maintained, nice modern but charming decor. Comfortable beds, quiet air-con, strong, reliable WiFi. Well-designed e.g., reading lights. Rooms have everything you need, eco-friendly soap and shampoo dispensers, safe, kettle with instant coffee and tea, minifridge, free bottled water. Smart TV with good range of channels. Other items such as hair dryer, iron, shaving kit, slippers etc are available on request. Hot shower with good water pressure. In a pedestrianised area - pleasant to walk around. CONS: Popular area with music events can make it noisy some nights. Earplugs came in handy when we had a lower floor suite. Upper floors away from Hospital St are quieter.
Hi Caroline, We are glad that you had a great stay with us and enjoyed surroundings. Hope to see you soon. From: - Team Fairway Colombo
STRONGLY RECOMMEND ”
One of the finest stay in Colombo compare to the money we spent for the stay. Room was very clean and the restaurant having various cuisines under one roof was really satisfying. I strongly recommend this hotel but I don’t recommend to stay long in Colombo.
We are glad that you had a great stay with us. Hope you come back soon.
Very good location”
Located at the centre of Dutch hospital, close to world trading centre and everywhere. The room is very clean and lovely decorated. However, someone signed there bill under my room number. It is a bit annoying we have to check that for 10 minutes in the morning.
We are glad that you had a great stay with us. See you soon on your next visit to Colombo.
Awesome location...new hotel”
The hotel is right in middle of fort area next to dutch shopping precinct which has nice restaurants and cafes with live music...all major attractions are nearby galle face green is walking distance and so are other major hotels...the rooms are spacious and the hotel is newly built...there is a food court and coffee shop at the geound floor...if in colombo this is the best hotel.. breakfast is nice
Excellent place to stay”
I was in Colombo to attend a function. A phone call requesting a hairdryer and an iron and ironing board was quickly responded to. The room had all that I required regard tea and coffee facilities, TV and safe etc. The bistro provided a nice rice and curry for my late lunch and breakfast in the morning was more than adequate. Fully recommend this hotel.

Perfect location / comfortable room”
The location is perfect, next to Old Dutch Hospital in Fort. Within walking distance of the Pettah, Fort Railway Station and Galle Face Green. Family room very spacious, modern and clean with good air conditioning and nice shower. Breakfast was good (buffet style with enough choices), served in the food court. This part of Colombo is also bustling and safe in the evening.
Hi Ruud, Thank you for staying with Fairway Colombo. We are glad that you had a great stay with us. Hope to see you soon.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the stay. Hope to see you soon. From: Team Fairway Colombo
Good hotel but extremely noisy ”
After expressing concern re the noise from bars that surround Fairway Colombo we were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite on the 6th floor. The suite was very good but we could still very clearly hear the music coming from the bars below. The sound was a little muffled, the music choice good, so it didn’t disrupt our stay too much, but I would dread to think how noisy it would be in rooms closer to the ground. Staff were lovely, breakfast buffet ok except all the pastries were very stale.
Thank you for staying with Fairway Colombo.
Good location n friendly stagg”
